CFA 44 Nosferatu by bagera3005 CFA 44 Nosferatu by bagera3005
The CFA-44 Nosferatu is an advanced delta-wing Estovakian fighter fielded by the Strigon flight lead, Ilya Pasternak. It is a powerful, maneuverable but unstable jet fighter that can use a trio of cutting-edge battle technology; namely the All Direction Multi-purpose Missile pods, the Electromagnetic Launcher (downsized railguns) & an integral ECM system. Apart from it's advanced battle technology & it's main characteristics, no other info concerning the Nosferatu is available. Description

The CFA-44 Nosferatu is a prototype fighter which was in development by the Estovakians. It saw combat when Ilya Pasternak flew it for his final battle over Gracemeria. It uses the aforementioned battle technology, yet the Estovakian Nosferatu is technically defenseless once it's defense mechanisms (namely it's UAVs & ADMM pods) are destroyed.

* Ace Combat 6: Finish the campaign on Hard difficulty. It'll then be made available for purchase in the Hangar screen.


Main article: UAV-45 Malgebolg

On the day of the battle against Ilya Pasternak, a large number of UAV's (named UAV-45 Malgebolg) were used to help him in the battle. Whenever Pasternak would fly far away at high speed, the player's radar would automatically lock onto a UAV. These UAVs were as small and as numerous as the cruise missiles launched at Gracemeria that same night. In addition, these UAV were extremely fast & nimble, often evading missiles by simply accelerating/performing sharp Immelmann Turns. A single, standard missile was sufficient to eliminate a UAV, and the same applied to cannon fire.

Standard Weapons

* Gun: 2x 30mm GSh-6-30 Gatling Cannon
* Missile: 2x R-60MK (AA-8 Aphid)

Special Weapons

* EML:
* ECMP : Unknown


* Its name is a reference to a Romanian vampire legend. This may be a reference to the "Vampire" squadron folded into Strigon Team. However, the emblem for Strigon itself is related to another mythological figure, the Grim Reaper.
* The CFA-44 is similar in design to the Strigon Team's signature aircraft, the Su-33D Flanker, suggesting that the Nosferatu concept was derivated from the Flanker-D.

I guess I find the UAV-45 Malgebolgs damn annoying when dealing the CFA-44 Nosferatu (I was using a Su-33D at the time)

it's not a unstable as described
the large delta wings make it a very stable aircraft
damn thing maneuvers like an F-22
airbrake suggests Sukhoi
its cool, but i do have to agree it isnt one of NAMCO's best planes, still cool, still, my favorite plane is still the SU-37 terminator. Yellow 13 FTW!!!!
Ace Combat...6?

You did a great job on this, but I still think Namco could have made a more unique design, it seems to much like the SU 50,

I have to say, this is one of the first fictional warplanes of Ace Combat that really disappointed me --- it looks like something I would have started to draw, only to stop and say, "I can do WAY better than that!".

That's not to disparage your work (your aircraft schematics are the best!), but the CFA 44 just seems bland and uninspired compared to NAMCO's other designs.

oddly it shares lines with su-50
Tank50us Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
If I'm mistaken, didn't the CFA-44 have three deflectors? (for thrust vectoring)
bagera3005 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
yes it dos
Tank50us Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
then why does it seem like this one has four?
Dumbrarere Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013
Its a trick of the eye. Because the deflectors are angled like an odd triangle, top-down and underbelly views give the false idea that there are 4 on the aircraft.
