‘Ace Combat 7’ Just Buzzed The Tower With Some New ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ DLC


What with everyone going crazy about Top Gun: Maverick right now, Ace Combat 7 hasn’t missed a trick and released a new DLC set of planes from the movie.

The DLC is now available for all platforms and features not only planes from the movie, but also extra emblems, nicknames and arranged versions of the Top Gun anthem and Danger Zone by Keiki Kobayashi.

This set also includes the new DarkStar fighter featured in the movie, and the Su-57 has been renamed to a more ambiguous “5th Gen Fighter”. Here is a quick breakdown for the weapons for each fighter:

  • F-14A Tomcat – Long-Range Air-to-Air Missile (LAAM), Semi-Active Air-to-Air Missle (SAAM) and Self-Forging Fragments Submunitions (SFFS) for the regular aircraft. High-Power Air-to-Air Missle (HPAA) for the Top Gun version
  • F/A-18E Super Hornet – High-Capacity Air-to-Air Missile (HCAA), 4 Target Air-to-Ground Missile (4AGM) and Long Range Air-to-Ground Missile (LAGM) for the regular aircraft. Hyper-Velocity Air-to-Air Missile (HVAA) and Guided Penetration Bomb (GPB) for the Top Gun version
  • 5th Gen Fighter – 4 Target Air-to-Air Missile (4AAM), High-Capacity Air-to-Air Missile (HCAA) and Land Attack Cruise Missile (LACM)
  • DarkStar – Short-Range Aerial Suppression Air-to-Air Missile (SASM), Pulse Laser (PLSL) and Advanced Small Diameter Bomb (XSDB)

If you have yet to pick up and play Ace Combat 7, then you are definitely missing out. It’s easily one of the best flight combat games out there.


Released back in 2019, it was and still is a lot of fun to play. It even has one of the best virtual reality setups available and actually makes the purchase of PlayStation VR worthwhile.

Anyway, this latest DLC set for Ace Combat 7 is now available and worth checking out.
