The Jerry Mouse, known as the A-JAX/2 Jerry Mouse in Airforce Delta Storm, is a Konami Legacy plane that appears in the PAL and NTSC-J versions of Airforce Delta Storm and all versions of Airforce Delta Strike. It was originally featured as the second of the player's two aircraft in Konami's 1987 vertical/3D scrolling shooter arcade game A-Jax, also known as Typhoon, the first one being a helicopter known as the "Tom Tiger". It bears some resemblance to the F-14D Tomcat.

Design

Airforce Delta Storm

In Airforce Delta Storm, the A-JAX/2 heavily resembles the F-14D and its variant in design; however, certain design elements have more intricate detailing, like the rear wings having a visible notch in the rear, slightly broader wings with a small protrusion, and additional design details near the cockpit. It also possesses another pair of rear wings, canted downwards. It has a white paint scheme with blue trim.

Airforce Delta Strike

In Airforce Delta Strike, the Jerry Mouse now has a more original design, though it still takes cues from the Tomcat. It now has a boxier and somewhat smaller design overall, with the biggest difference being its box-shaped engines. The vertical stabilizer placement is also different. It has a white paint scheme with dark grey and yellow highlights, and a decal on the left wing.

Performance

Airforce Delta Storm

A very strong performer in this game. This plane can be unlocked fairly early on in the second chapter by finding the hidden Melaina Airbase and all of its stats are quite high and it has an impressive range of 5. Though highly expensive, you can have enough money to purchase this plane if you've been diligent in attacking and destroying enemies. Very above average, though it has some trouble competing with the MiG-1.44 MFI and even more so with the XF-0002 Phosphorus. This plane is exclusive to the PAL and NTSC-J versions, of course. So you can't use it if you have the US version.

Airforce Delta Strike

A much worse showing this time around, unfortunately. Although it still has good stats, it now has major flaws that seriously hold it back. Firstly, it has rockets instead of missiles as its primary weapon, making it hard to recommend unless you're good with rocket planes. Secondly, it has a poor special weapon in the form of the inaccurate ML-AAM which is prone to missing its generally highly mobile targets. As a result, this is arguably one of the worst Konami Legacy planes in this game.

Trivia

  • The name of this craft may be a reference to the character Jerry Mouse from the cartoon Tom and Jerry.
    • The inclusion of the F-14D Tomcat alongside this craft may also be a reference to the character Tom Cat from said cartoon.
  • The music that plays when this plane is used in Storm is a heavily remixed techno version of a soundtrack from A-Jax titled "Command 770". When this plane is used in Earth missions in Strike, the normal version of the soundtrack plays instead.
    • When this plane is used in space missions, a soundtrack from A-Jax titled "Grand Battle" plays instead. This makes the Jerry Mouse one of the few Konami Legacy planes to play different music in space missions. The others being the VIC VIPER and TwinBee.
  • Although this plane is unlocked for free in Strike, this plane's price would technically be 840,000 credits due to how repair prices for planes are calculated (50% of the plane's cost to purchase, hundred-digit numbers rounded up).
