The F/A-32C Erne is a multirole aircraft produced and operated by General Resource LTD.
The F/A-32C was commonly used in the middle of the war of 2040 by the GRDF. The aircraft saw more use as a strike/attack aircraft than as a fighter since by this time more capable aircraft were appearing that weren't hindered by stealth design as much as the F/A-32C. Less action was seen by this type towards the end of the Corporate War of 2040.
The aircraft appears in both versions of Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere (Japan and Export/US). To unlock the Erne in the Export version, the player must earn 18 A-ranks in the campaign.
In gameplay, the Erne is slated as a multirole aircraft, however it is best suited for anti-ground missions due it its low speed and arsenal.
On higher difficulty levels, the Erne will occasionally pull a Pugachev's Cobra to force the player to overshoot. This maneuver is, unfortunately, impossible to counter due to the fact that it makes the Erne hover in mid air for a couple of seconds before it either loops around entirely, continues forward, or extends the maneuver into a Hammerhead. The only way to really counter this maneuver is to perform a high-G upwards arc and even that depends largely on the player's reflexes and skill.
