The Helicopters, Bombers, and Gunships of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

It's Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Friday once again, and this week Project Aces gives us a detailed look at what we'll be flying when the fighter jets are grounded.

The Ace Combat series has a strong focus on jets, and Assault Horizon is no different, with 25 different models to choose from. But sometime you need to hover, bomb, and just generally kick ass at a slower pace. That's where the bombers, gunships, and helicopters come in.

So let us enjoy this visual celebration of Assault Horizon's non-jets. We've got the AH-64D Apache Longbow, Mi-24 Hind, and the legendary MH-60 Black Hawk in helicopters; the B-1B and B-2 Spirit bombers; and only one gunship — the AC-130U Spooky — but I assure you that's all the gunship you'll need.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon hits the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next month.
