Jamie: Look who's talking! You're the one who hasn't been around. Well, whatever. Another one of those missions only we can do, right?
Lilia: [smiles] You got it. You old coots are the only ones that can handle this.
Jamie: ...Just lemme hear the details.
Lilia: [turns neutral] Amelia, read us our orders.
Rick: [angry] A train? You want us to escort a train?! What do we look like, the calvary[sic]?
Robert: Please, Rick. The lives of a lot of officers, soldiers, and civilians are hanging in the balance here. Amelia, let's hear the sit rep.
Amelia: The army has temporarily seized the Ariana Railroad to move survivors and civilians out of the ruins of Area NB-53.
Alex: So it's an evacuation train. Or is it a refugee train?
Amelia: Almost all military units have been relocated, and the next train should be the last.
Lilia: However, Area NB-53 is already under enemy control. It's a pretty good bet the enemy will be targeting this one. It's an extremely dangerous situation.
Robert: Commodore Martin and the Mayor of Lugerde have been directing the operation and should be on the last train.
Jamie: ...Hmph. Can't let the enemy attack a train full of big shots, I guess. So you want us to be the escorts, eh?
Lilia: [smiles] Yes. I mean, you have a prop-plane and Lieutenant Levine has a VTOL..[sic] You're perfect for the job.
Rick: [worried] But my plane can't fly slow enough to cover a train!
Lilia: All right, let Lieutenant Campbell fly on ahead as an outrider, then. Sending the 1st Element out there gives us the greatest chance of success. You guys are it, I'm afraid.
Rick: [displeased] Aw, man...
Lilia: [turns serious] We can't let those passengers get slaughtered like sheep. Especially not the bigwigs. Do a good job out there.
Jamie: [smiles] Roger that, princess.
Robert: Now head out and escort that last train out of NB-53. We're counting on you!
Jamie: Right, let's get going!
Amelia: Low altitude radar signal ahead.
Alex: (if playing as Jamie) We got bandits here? How come?
Jamie: (if playing as Rick) Bandits around here? What's that all about?
Rick: (if playing as Alex) There'reNOTE: The subtitles say "There're", but he actually says "There's". bandits in this place. What are they up to?
Amelia: I don't know. But we can't allow them to remain.
Alex: (if playing as Jamie) Nomad, request bandits' course.
Amelia: (if playing as Jamie) Er... They're heading for point 31.
Alex: (if playing as Jamie) Today's op zone? Lead! Let's take them now!
Jamie: (if playing as Rick) What's their course, missy?
Amelia: (if playing as Rick) Just a moment. Er... Looks like they're heading for point 31.
Jamie: (if playing as Rick) We're on a collision course then. They'll get in the way later. Let's ground 'em now, huh?
Rick: (if playing as Alex) Nomad, what is the bandits heading?
Amelia: (if playing as Alex) Bringing it up now. It's...point 31 by these readings.
Rick: (if playing as Alex) Right, that's our target too... Could be a problem. Be a drag to run into them. Shall we take them out?
Amelia: (if playing as Alex) Affirmative. Roger. (regardless of which character is being played as, Amelia will say the following line) All Anaconda units, fan out and wipe them out. Watch your altitude!
[no more scripted dialogue; Intercept mission ends when all enemies are shot down]
Amelia: Nomad to all units! Escort allied freight train area NB-52. Do your best to eliminate any potential threats.
Commander: Target identified ahead. Closing in. Stop the train ahead! Fire if it doesn't comply! Read some warning shots! Fire!
Engine Driver: Huh?! We're under attack! Speed up!
Operator: The train's speed has increased.
Commander: Who does he think he is?! No more warning shots!
Operator: Yes, sir!
Engine Driver: Mayday! Mayday! We are under enemy fire! Get rid of them!
Lancer: This is Lancer 2. I am in position. Starting prep.
Lancer 2: This is Lancer 2. Phase 1 and 2 are complete. Ready for orders.
Lancer 1: Lancer 1 here. Roger that. The target is heading your way. Move into phase 3.
Lancer 2: Roger. Moving into phase 3.
Lancer 1: Let's blast it. Waiting for your signal, Lancer 3.
Lancer 3: Lancer 3 here. You are cleared to fire any time.
Lancer 1: All units out of the danger zone?
Lancer 3: Check. 3... 2... 1... -explosion-
Amelia: Nomad to all Anaconda units. Rockfall confirmed ahead of the train. Info is on your HUDs. Go on ahead to clear those tails.
[if the allied train gets close enough to the rockfall, the following two lines will be said]
Secondary Engine Driver: Rocks on the track ahead!
Engine Driver: Q-quick! Clear the way! We're gonna hit! Emergency brakes! Come on! Stop, damn you!
Amelia: (when the player destroys the rockfall) The rockfall has been removed.
Engine Driver: (in the PAL version, either this line or the following will be said when the allied train moves across the tracks the rockfall blocked before being destroyed. In the NTSC-U version, only this line will be said) If there'd been any left...we'd have been done for...
Engine Driver: (in the PAL version, either this line or the one above will be said when the allied train moves across the tracks the rockfall blocked before being destroyed. This line will never be said in the NTSC-U version) Phew! Thanks! That was close!
[if the allied train gets close to the three Yak-38 "Forger A"s, the following six lines will be said]
Silar Leader: Snap 180! Time to show what a V/STOL can do!
Amelia: Counting 1, 2... 3 of them! Get them out of there immediately!
Mayor: Fighters! Where did they come from?!
Secretary: From the ravine floor, sir!
Mayor: Don't be an idiot! Of course they came from ravine floor!
Secretary: Sorry, sir...
[if the player attacks the three Yak-38 "Forger A"s before the allied train gets close to them, the following three lines will be said]
Silar Leader: Wh-where's the fire coming from?! All units, scramble!
Silar: Yes, sir!
Amelia: Counting 1, 2... 3 of them! Get them out of there immediately!
Rick: (if playing as Jamie or Alex and the Yak-38 "Forger A"s become active, Rick will potentially say the following line) That slow moving bogey... That's no bandit!
Alex: (if playing as Jamie or Rick and the Yak-38 "Forger A"s become active, Alex will potentially say the following line) Oh, it's a friendly! Now we can't lose.
Jamie: (if playing as Rick or Alex and the Yak-38 "Forger A"s become active, Jamie will potentially say the following line) Hmph! Think you can beat me with those propless whales of yours!
Mayor: Can't we go any faster?!
Secretary: Impossible! Any more speed and we'll shoot right off the rails!
Mayor: Well, do something!
Secretary: Like what?
Mayor: Listen! Do something! For me and for the townspeople! Okay?!
Train Guard Captain: (if the allied train moves away from the armed train on the bridge above and the armed train is not destroyed) Hmm... so the advance guard let 'em get through, huh? Useless idiots! Dammit, we've gotta take care of this. We can't let 'em get through!
Train Guard Captain: (if the player destroys every armed train except for the one on the bridge above the allied train) Move, move! Get moving, you goddamn piece of trash!
Train Guard Captain: (if the player destroys the armed train on the bridge above the allied train as it moves away from it) Hmm… so the advance guard’s been wiped out, huh…? Dammit, we've gotta take care of this. We can't let 'em get through!
Rick: (if playing as Jamie) Rush Hour! I left you the slow bandits!
Alex: (if playing as Jamie) Ro-ger! I guessed you would! Ah... It's not easy cleaning up after everyone.
Rick: (if playing as Jamie) Hey! Someone'sNOTE: The subtitles say "Someone's", but he actually says "Somebody's". gotta do it.
Alex: (if playing as Jamie) Right, better get on with the job then.
Rick: (if playing as Jamie) Roger! Go for it!
Alex: (if playing as Jamie) And you, Nonstop. Try not to get shot down!
Jamie: (if playing as Rick) Rush Hour! Wake up!
Alex: (if playing as Rick) Wake up! What's that supposed to mean?
Jamie: (if playing as Rick) Show some fighting spirit! Some guts!
Alex: (if playing as Rick) You don't need to be rude.
Jamie: (if playing as Rick) Rush Hour!!
Alex: (if playing as Rick) I know what I've gotta do. Don't worry!
Jamie: (if playing as Rick) Let's see it then! Show us what you've got!
Rick: (if playing as Alex) But Shogun! You're still flying that prop-plane!
Jamie: (if playing as Alex) Yeah, so what if I'm flying my prop-plane?
Rick: (if playing as Alex) In other words, don't overdo it!
Jamie: (if playing as Alex) I can hold my own!
Rick: (if playing as Alex) Prop-planes can't keep up with the jets!
Jamie: (if playing as Alex) Speed isn't everything, sonny!
Rick: (if playing as Alex) Speed is power! Why can't you understand that?
Jamie: (if playing as Alex) You reckon you can win a rhubarb just with speed? I don't think so!
Rick: (if playing as Alex) You don't have a clue what you're talking about!
Jamie: (if playing as Alex) Them's fighting words! Ya wanna go?
Amelia: (if the allied train gets attacked by armed trains) Taking enemy fire. Return to the guard target immediately.
[if the player is far away from the allied train, Amelia will say any of the following four lines]
Amelia: Enemy approaching. Return immediately.
Amelia: The guard target is under attack. Do something!
Amelia: You're too far away from the guard target! Return immediately.
Amelia: It's surrounded! Eliminate the enemy immediately!
Secondary Engine Driver: (if the allied train's first train car is damaged) Damn! The train's damaged! ...Ah, it's only minor!
Amelia: (if the allied train's second train car is damaged early in the mission) The freight train's being bombed! It can't hold out! Hurry!
Engine Driver: (if the allied train's second train car is damaged late in the mission) Hey! What are you doing?! Speed up and shake them off!
Amelia: (if the allied train's third train car is damaged early in the mission) The freight train's taken a hit! Emergency!
Mayor: (if the allied train's third train car is damaged late in the mission) Do you know who I am! Eh?!
Amelia: (if the allied train's fourth train car is damaged early in the mission) The train's speed is dropping! It can't take any more damage!
Secondary Engine Driver: (if the allied train's fourth train car is damaged late in the mission) The train's taking fire! We can't make it!
[if the allied train takes too much damage or crashes into the rockfall before the player destroys it, the mission will fail and the following line will be said]
Engine Driver: Urrrrrgh!
[if the player destroys/shoots down all enemies marked as targets, the mission is completed and the following two lines will be said]
Amelia: There's nothing left on the radar screen. Mission successful. All Anaconda units, set a course for base.
Engine Driver: Thank you. Everything I've heard about you is true. Thanks.
[if the allied train survives and exits the mission zone, the mission is also completed and the following two lines will be said]
Mayor: Thank you! I'll repay you someday, I promise!
Amelia: The train has cleared the battle zone. All units, head for home. Bravo Zulu.
[in briefing room]
Robert: [grins] Nice work, Jamie. Rick, Alex: you did well, too.
Jamie: [angry] That was one pain-in-the-ass job! Can't you give us something easier? Some missions we can just breeze through?
Lilia: If you want that type of work, you'll have to start flying normal planes. And that goes for all three of you.
Jamie: Now come on, princess! Real men fly prop fighters, don't ya know? There's nothing like being that close to the clouds!
Rick: [angry] What are you babbling about? Mankind has a mission, and it's to test the limits of physical speed. Speed is everything. And what's the best airborne fighting strategy? Hit-and-run, of course!
Jamie: Hmph! What a waste of precious fuel! The environmental groups would have your head on a platter!
Rick: Why you...! You're asking for it, Jamie!
Jamie: Yeah, you bet I am!
Alex: Well, with those two aside...I was wondering if I could fly a standard plane. I wouldn't mind.
Robert: [sadly] No, that won't work, either. You're the only one in this Squadron that can pilot a VTOL, so that's we need you to do.[sic]
Alex: So that means I'll be in this Element for quite a while, right?
Robert: Yeah...You're the only one that can work with Jamie, you know?
Alex: [smiles] ...Gotcha. Well, I gotta take what I can get. And I don't mind, anyway.
Lilia: Er, shouldn't somebody stop them?
Alex: Naw. They won't hurt each other.
Lilia: That may be so, but...
Alex: You wouldn't believe it, but deep down they're good friends. Well, it's about time for me to get some rest. [leaves]
Lilia: All right, good night, then. You'd think this war was a jolly party, from the way this Element acts...
