''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3338924/1/Ace_Combat_5_The_Battle_of_Sudentor The Battle of Sudentor]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~sudentor Sudentor]]
* Recommended by owlbot
* ''Synoposis'': An in-depth novelization of the penultimate mission in AceCombat 5, "Aces", depicting what happened mere hours before Osean and Yuktobanian armed forces ceased warring with each other and allied together to face the common threat of mutual destruction to the climatic mission itself. Rather than follow the exploits of the ace squadron of the game, however, the story gives focus to the nameless NPC soldiers that made the victory possible.
* ''Comments'': Sudentor takes the second-to-last mission (and possibly the most climatic one) in Ace Combat 5 and brings it down to a ridiculously in-depth level. Using what is almost a [[Series/TwentyFour 24]]-styled pacing, the author chooses to detract from the traditional formula of following whatever ace fighter squadron the game depicts, and tells how events transpired and came to be with excruciating detail through the eyes of allied NPC soldiers heard only through radio chatter. The chapters are quite long but very well-written, and the story progresses along beautifully and realistically, but of obvious concern is the fact that it took the author two and a half years to write Chapter Two after publishing Chapter One. While Sudentor has said that Chapter Three ''should'' be the last chapter and it would be completed as soon as possible, one would worry that it may take another two years before we can see the conclusion to this in-depth novelization.

* Recommended by Gentlemens Dame 883, LiquidUranium, ZeroXSEED
* ''Synopsis'': A novelisation of ''AceCombat 5: The Unsung War/[[MarketBasedTitle Squadron Leader]]''. Four years after the ISAF defeats Erusia, the legendary Mobius One disappears. A year later, the [=CircumPacific=] War starts. This time, however, Blaze hides a secret, one that threatens to be revealed as his past catches up with him.
* ''Comments'': Taking the stand that Mobius One and Blaze are one and the same (it's no spoiler, the story tells us as much a few paragraphs in!), the story does a good job of developing him into a real character instead of the {{AFGNCAAP}}s of the games. One of its key points is its attempt to adhere to realism, averting amongst others the games' HyperspaceArsenal and EasyLogistics, with a few dry [[LampshadeHanging Hung Lampshades]] or {{Take That}}s, and for the most part (bar, say, Mobius One having been a [[FourStarBadass still-active Two Star Badass]] before his "disappearance") it succeeds.
** Definitely the best ''Ace Combat'' story I've read. The author manages to take a [[HeroicMime silent,]] [[{{AFGNCAAP}} completely undeveloped protagonist]] and make him into a compelling character. The character development interludes are well-executed, and the attention to detail throughout the story is excellent. - LiquidUranium
** The story is effective in how it 'rewrites' the story's technical details, while preserving the broader narrative. For example, during the Port St. Hewlett attack's second phase it's the Osean carriers' [=F/A-18=] Hornets going on anti-ship sorties while Wardog Flight provides top cover, and there's a scene where the game version of the Stonehenge attack is deconstructed as completely exaggerated by the media, "a common misconception." However, there are some bumps in the plausibility, such as a "nugget" (newbie) pilot ''not'' recognizing immediately that him in a F-5E Tiger versus anyone in a F-22 Raptor (much less Mobius One/Blaze) is him being set up for a humbling.
** Indeed, The "[[TooDumbToLive Nuggets in the F-5]]" issues aside, there's few, if any, jarring content. Blaze/Ribbon even repeatedly lampshaded that ego is a pilot's worst enemy, and he's prone to berate himself when [[HypocriticalHumor HIS own ego slip]]. Also kudos for addressing the "ImpliedLoveInterest" status of Edge and made it believable, as in "Not happening soon, but far from impossible". [[DeadFic Sadly, the fic haven't been updated since 2009]].

* Recommended by Scherzo
* ''Synopsis'': Taking place 2 years after the end of the Continental War, a young female pilot is forced to face the reality of warfare and life in general as she fights to stop a Fascist insurgency as a member of Erusea's Foreign Legion.
* ''Comments'': Rather than trying to create a ridiculous plot in which the pilots are invincible [[MarySue Mary Sues]], The Author focuses on combat's effects on a pilot. It is neither Anti-War or Pro-war. Instead, he focuses on the real decisions pilots need to make, and the stresses they go through in consequence. Very well written; it can be enjoyed by people who only have a passing interest in the ''AC'' franchise, as it paints a much fuller world than the one that exists in the games. The dialog is good as well, although several of the characters could be better fleshed out. Overall, though, its an exciting read (as well as one that has been completed) that will be appreciated by anyone looking for a more realistic version of Strangereal.
