    The Ace Combat series is a varied one, with many enjoyable mechanics and some not-as-enjoyable issues. There's still a notable lack of information on the upcoming Ace Combat 7 but its developers have a history of over 15 prior games to improve upon. What can – and should – this next installment learn from the previous games in the series?

    As obvious as it may seem to suggest fixing bugs, some Ace Combat games have had the same consistent, annoying bugs. One of the most popular bugs plaguing all of the games is the AI's ability to fly through the ground. Even Ace Combat Infinity, the latest console game in the series, has this problem.

    Greetings, aces! It is a sad day around the world; just hours ago, Ace Combat Infinity closed its doors after nearly four years of service. We tip our hats to Project Aces and the ACEINF management team within PA for all of their hard work in maintaining the game this long.

    But with Infinity gone, our sights are now focused back where they belong: on Strangereal. And to celebrate this occasion, we have decided to stop pretending what this wiki covers. No, we don't care about mission articles, we don't care about the games, and we certainly don't care about many of the characters.

    What we have always cared about is Belka. It's always been Belka.

    Starting today, new rules will be enacted across Acepedia, which will be renamed to Belkapedia:
