Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

In Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, the F-15E "THE IDOLM@STER" is the first downloadable Strike Eagle variant. It was released in November 29, 2011 with PACK 05, costing 400 MSP in Xbox Live and 4.99$ USD in the PlayStation Store. It is one of the three iM@S aircraft released for the game, accompanied by the Su-33 -THE IDOLMASTER MIKI- and the F-22A -THE IDOLMASTER HARUKA-. All three aircraft can be downloaded in a single bundle worth 9.99$ or 400 MSP.

There are two Chihaya paint schemes available: the basic version and a low visibility, "monotone" version. Unlike its Fires of Liberation precursor, the aircraft is merely a paint scheme, and does not affect performance in any way.

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

"While a little hard to handle when it’s in a bad mood, this plane’s talent is undeniable. Keep your head up, spread your wings and take to the skies!"
― Official description

The F-15E iDOLM@STER is the fourth aircraft of the iDOLM@STER aircraft line. It was released in the XBL Marketplace in February 27, 2008 with PACK 05, at the price of 4.99$ (400 MSP, pre-MSP retirement). As implied, it is themed on iM@S character Chihaya Kisaragi. The aircraft is adorned with a blue paint job with white stripes, while Kisaragi's likeness is emblazoned in the left side of the plane, while the "PROJECT iM@S" logo is featured in the right wing.

In performance, the aircraft boasts a minor yet general statistics upgrade in comparison to the basic F-15E Strike Eagle. In exchange for the upgrade, however, the plane's armor is stripped down, thus reducing its survivability in the battlefield. Furthermore, it has a tendency to stall and become unresponsive, making flight in areas with heavy combat a hazardous task. The Strike Eagle's missile, XAGM and Unguided Bomb capacity has been reduced, while that of the XMA6 and Self-Forging Fragment Submunitions weapons has been raised.

Trivia

  • The aircraft's characteristic of locking itself into a nosedive upon taking damage in 6 is a reference to something called the "Chihaya Spiral". Chihaya's mood in the original arcade game was famous for being extremely hard to manage. She gains small tension gain if the communication or lesson is good, but it drops drastically if the communication is bad.
  • In Infinity, the aircraft's Lv.1 price is 765 credits. This is a reference to "765 Production", an idol talent agency in THE iDOLM@STER, as well as Namco's Goroawase number of 765. More information is available at 765.
