"Benefits courtesy of the Golden Axe Plan. Way too much overkill for huntin' scorpions though!"
Daniel Oruma

The GAF-1 Varcolac is a fictional multirole aircraft designed in the Ace Combat: Joint Assault universe for the Varcolac Squadron. It later made its first console appearance in Ace Combat Infinity.

DescriptionEdit

Developed in secrecy under the orders of Andre Olivieri, the GAF-1 Varcolac was a product of the Golden Axe Plan. It was the signature aircraft of the Varcolac Squadron.

The Varcolac is a high-end multirole aircraft and is compatible with a large number of parts for tuning. There are three cockpit parts exclusive to the Varcolac based on the Varcolac Squadron members' specialties, which can drastically alter the aircraft's attributes.

Game AnalysisEdit

Ace Combat InfinityEdit

"A large, versatile aircraft developed in secret based on the "Golden Axe Plan."
Massive in size, more than twice that of many other combat aircraft, and characterized by its forward jutting cockpits[1].
It is a canard wing aircraft, with the massive backswept wing unified with the canards that stretch from the front of the aircraft and the winglets on the wing tips, and twin vertical tails that rise at an outward angle from the left and right engine units.
It is known as "Varcolac", meaning "werewolf"."

This aircraft's part slots can be steadily increased by repeatedly sortieing with it. The "part slot expansion points" required are displayed below; when all of the points for one expansion are obtained, all three part slot categories will receive one additional slot and the left-over points will carry over towards the next expansion. After each sortie, players will receive anywhere between 100 to 130 expansion points (x2.5 for using two fuel, or x4.5 for using three fuel).

If any expansion is not displayed, then data is not yet available for that particular expansion.

History

GAF-1 Varcolac was used by Varcolac Squadron. Each of the Varcolacs was customised based on the pilot's specialty. Milosz Sulejmani's Varcolac had great maneuverability, and was equipped with an automated gun system that could intercept incoming missiles.
After the air and surface assaults on San Francisco were repelled by Martinez Security and United States Third Fleet, the Golden Axe Plan deployed Varcolac Squadron with GAF-1 Varcolacs. They were ultimately shot down by Antares Squadron.
