The fourteenth game in the ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series (the twelfth in the Strangereal line, counting [[VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizonLegacy remakes]]), released for mobile phones in 2011.
As Grendel 1, you fly covert missions for the manipulative Kingdom of Nordennavic, an ostensibly neutral northern nation on the Anean continent. The story spans 1999 through 2016, with the Grendel Squadron secretly participating in all three major conflicts of this period: the [[VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies Usean Continental War]], the [[VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar Circum-Pacific War]], and the [[VideoGame/AceCombat6FiresOfLiberation Anean Continental War]].
!!Tropes found in the game:
* HufflepuffHouse: Over the years, the Kingdom of Nordennavic received brief mentions in the Strangereal setting lore, but never made an appearance in any of the main ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' games. This entry in the series is basically intended as an aversion of this trope.
* MysteriousProtector: The Grendel Squadron to the protagonists of the previous games.
* NorseByNorsewest: The main character's homeland, the Kingdom of Nordennavic, is an obvious stand-in for Scandinavian countries in the world of the ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series.
