A livery depicts the antagonist CFA-44's ace that appeared in Ace Combat: Ikaros in the Sky novel
This is my headcanon skin for A Xi, the "Republic" (which is implied to be China) ace that appeared in "Ikaros in the Sky", a novel centered around ASF-X Shinden, the next gen fighter of JASDF which debuted in Ace Combat Assault Horizon. Being a seasonal pilot, A Xi is appointed as the instructor of "Immortal Squadron", the best combat unit that the Republic's Air Forces can offer. In the latter part of the story, Axi encountered the protagonists , Nagase and Asano, who were the test pilot of the Shinden during an interception mission. After clipping Asano's plane's wing with his CFA-44's EML, A Xi proceeded to engage Nagase in an intense dogfight. Nagase managed to damage A Xi's craft and forced him to withdraw. Before leaving the airspace, the Republic's Ace taunted the Nagase a little bit over the radio. His fate after the fight is left unknown.
You can read the full translation of "Ikaros in the Sky" novel here:
- The emblem on the tail is Chinese symbol of longevity and happiness to reflect the name of the unit, "Immortal"
- The number "10317" is a reference to March 10th, 2017, the day which J-20, the first Chinese stealth fighter, went operational in PLAAF
-The skin itself is based on one of J-20's liveries
