During the Usean Continental War in Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies, 18 Erusian aces were engaged and shot down by Mobius One. The majority of these aces came from the Federal Erusian Air Force but some may have been members of the Federal Erusian Navy's naval air force.

The aces only appear during the second and following playthroughs of the campaign (via SP New Game), as well as in the Free Mission mode (unlocked after the first playthrough). They only appear on Normal difficulty or above. They do not appear on the radar unless the player is close to them.

  • All of the aces are named after famous astronomers (except Yellow 13, whose name is unknown).
  • The ace's aircraft usually correspond to the type of targets that are present in the mission. If there are both ground and air targets, the ace's aircraft is likely to be multirole, whereas if only ground targets are present, it is likely to be an "attacker" or an air to ground aircraft.
  • Smirnova is likely to be a female ace, because in the Russian naming system, "a" is added to the ending of a female's name if it ends with "v" (in this case, "a" is added to "Smirnov"). In addition, the real life astronomer the ace is named after happens to be a Russian female.
