All supply transports to Area 88 have been cut off by the enemy. With the base running low in fuel and ammunition, supply costs have soared. The task of freeing the base from the enemy's stranglehold falls to Shin Kazama and a couple of unlikely pilots.
Then, as if that weren't enough, a sniper holds the base hostage with his rifle. The pilots are willing, but they have to locate the sniper first, so Makoto Shinjou decided's to help out with his photographic skills.
The thanks he gets is the ride of his life in a cavorting fighter jet on a dangerous roller-coaster enemy base lies at the opening to the canyon, but who will make it and who will fall?
