Akula by pvtskwerl Akula by pvtskwerl
Akula from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.
His default shark face scheme kinda sucks, so I took some liberty with it.

Special thanks to dad for doing back-seat driving (drawing?) for the entire course of the project. Also thanks to conceptart.org and relicnews #art irc channels for critiques.

P.S. Project Aces, I expect great things from Akula =)

This git is by far the most irritating boss battle in any AC game ever, and only because of the plot-armor he gets. Though breaking his AI in Blue on Blue is always funny.

Otherwise, looks like he's had a run-in with someone judging by the rather well-designed airframe damage. Wouldn't say Bishop 'cause his Su-35 gets obliterated over Moscow. Excellent job all round, though to me the shark decal looks a bit...small. Hard to spot in a dogfight and would make him less recognisable for who he is.

Hands down the most annoying fight in the AC franchise.
A close second would be the Arkbird battle in AC 5.

Nice.

That said, Akula has some serious issues.

This is beyond any AC fan's wildest dreams.


and @Gimiglider: Markov is a bit too much of a dick and flies an overpowered plane and yet still can't win and will thus never be better than Mobius and Blaze...plus, speaking characters are overrated

Markov is the best. fucking. ace. ever. He even has an epic catchphrase! "Goodnight, arrogant american"
Epicness...
Even better than mobius and Wardog combined.
