* GuestFighter: ''Airforce Delta Storm'' introduced multiple planes on Konami's many ShootEmUp properties: the original release had the Phosphorus (based on ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'''s Vic Viper) and ''VideoGame/{{TwinBee}}'' (under the name "Bee Fatty"), with the later releases adding the jet from ''AJAX'' and the player ship of ''Space Manbow''. Using them would play medleys of their respective games' soundtrack during missions. ''Strike'' went crazy with the shmup cameos, adding the likes of the ''VideoGame/{{Axelay}}'' and the ''Crisis Force'' ship.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreakingBug: In the North American release, there is a glitch that prevents the unlocking of Brian's Sea Vixen. For reference, unlocking the Axelay requires that all aircraft other than the Konami aircraft be unlocked and purchased. This is fixed in the Japanese and European releases, although it's possible to get the Axelay without a Gameshark and the Sea Vixen in the North American version.

** Some of the unlockable special fighters like the Twin Bee are this.

** Some of the unlockable special fighters like the Twin Bee are this. The Aura-Wing from ''Crisis Force'' is an example, as it has great air to air abilities and a powerful laser sub-weapon but goes at the speed of molasses.
** Even the regular aircraft are this. You may be in a SuperPrototype fighter that never left the drawing board, but having no onboard gun is a death sentence if you're out of ammo...

The story goes as follows: In the somewhat distant future, Earth and the space colonies--banded together under the banner of "Orbital Citizens Community"--are embroiled in a major war and the titular eponymous squadron, a RagtagBunchOfMisfits, is right in the middle of it on Earth's side. The OCC have a substantial technology advantage, but the EDAF have (supposedly) greater numbers and are fighting on home turf. The game opens with the OCC occupying roughly 80% of the land.

* MilitaryMashupMachine: Strike is loaded to the gills with examples from the OCC. Of particular note are the fleet of rolling tires big enough to fly through the center. In game, they're called "Land Battleships."

* AirborneAircraftCarrier: The first mission has the player launching from one.

to:

* AirborneAircraftCarrier: The first mission has the player launching from one.one, in a rather odd fashion that involves throwing the plane out the back and hoping it can start up properly in free-fall. Although some dialogue seems to at least imply that planes aren't ''meant'' to be launched from it in transit.



* BackFromTheBrink: The first mission is either a homage or shameless ripoff of ''VideoGame/{{Ace Combat 04|ShatteredSkies}}''[='=]s opening mission.

* AFatherToHisMen: Holst is this to Brian; Sergei is this on the OCC side, fighting to keep conquered/disenfranchised former EDAF-member nations in [[BigBad the Navigator]]'s good grace and willing to take responsibilities for failures in order to protect his subordinates, even [[SmugSnake Smug Snakes]] such as Giuseppe and Leon. [[spoiler:After he dies, whatever peace there is between OCC aces dies with him.]]

The Federated Republic of Zabayral, which did not maintain an army, was broken up by ethnic tensions caused by the wake of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar. Nine years after, a revolutionary army called "The People's Federation" has formed and managed to reunite most of the former republic through force. The last independent nation left standing, the Republic of Laconia, has hired the foreign Air Force Delta mercenary organization to defend itself.

Added DiffLines:

* PalBonus: The later-released Japanese and PAL versions added several new planes, and the mission "Attack of the Tyrant" was made more polished and difficult:
**In the updated version, the player flies over the Allied Force fleet before it's destroyed in the cutscene.
**There is now a visible timer on-screen indicating the Tyrant's next attack, as well as a robotic voice talking about its charging level. In the original version, there's no indicator of if/when the Tyrant is going to fire beside the squadron leader telling the player that "it's going to fire" one minute before it does.
**The "Tyrant Towers" fire highly damaging laser beams; in the original version, they did nothing except move up and down.
