In Airforce Delta Storm, there are some hidden levels which are unlocked by completing certain Intercept missions close to airbases. There are eight of these hidden missions in the game.

Overall Description

Hidden missions generally involve destroying ground targets and sometimes shooting down a fighter jet or two. Some are repeats of other hidden missions with different enemies and a different sky color as well as a different terrain.

To the Front Lines

To the Front Lines is the first hidden mission that can be unlocked in Airforce Delta Storm.

Walkthrough

There are three small areas on the map each having targets clustered in each of them. They fire lots of bullets at you so be careful. You also have to shoot down one of three planes. This mission is fairly simple overall.

Reward

The reward for this mission is 70,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the number of enemies taken out and, in the case of the planes, how they were taken out. The E.E.Lightning/F6 is unlocked for 210,000 credits. In the PAL version, a plane exclusive to it, the Super Etendard, is also unlocked for 190,000 credits.

Mission Dialogue for To the Front Lines

Delta Leader: (When mission is selected on the map) We've detected the enemy front line on radar. We're now heading for this location to attack. Hope you're ready for a good fight, everyone.

Pinpoint

Pinpoint is the third hidden mission that can be unlocked in Airforce Delta Storm.

Walkthrough

This mission plays somewhat similarly to The Glass Scale in that you must shoot down one plane and take out ground targets in a single, wide target area. This mission can be mildly easier since there are two less enemies here than in The Glass Scale.

A Lingering Afterglow

A Lingering Afterglow is the fourth hidden mission that can be unlocked in Airforce Delta Storm.

Walkthrough

Most enemies in this mission are spaced far from each other and they mostly stand alone. Therefore, having to avoid getting hit by bullets while attacking enemies should be fairly easy for the most part. This is a really easy mission. Just watch out for the planes in the PAL version.

Reward

The reward for this mission is 50,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the amount of enemies taken out and, in the case of the planes in the PAL version, how they were taken out. The IDF Ching-kuo is unlocked for 330,000 credits.

On a Vast Stretch of Earth

On a Vast Stretch of Earth is the fifth hidden mission that can be unlocked in Airforce Delta Storm.

Walkthrough

This mission is essentially a repeat of To the Front Lines so there's not much here to mention other than the fact that there are a few differences: While To the Front Lines featured bullet-firing ZSU-23 AAAs, this mission features missile-launching PAC-3s, so you should be a bit more careful. The planes here are also different.

Reward

The reward for this mission is 50,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the amount of enemies taken out and, in the case of the planes, how they were taken out. The Super Rafale is unlocked for 420,000 credits.

Blinded

Blinded is the sixth hidden mission that can be unlocked in Airforce Delta Storm.

Walkthrough

Another repeat of a previous hidden mission. In this case, it's one of Pinpoint, though this time there are missile-launching PAC-3s instead of bullet-firing ZSU-23 AAAs, so be careful. You also have to shoot down two fighter jets here, as opposed to just one in Pinpoint.

Reward

The reward for this mission is 70,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the number of enemies taken out and, in the case of the planes, how they were taken out. The F-2 is unlocked for 500,000 credits.

Surprise Attack

Surprise Attack is the seventh hidden mission that can be unlocked in Airforce Delta Storm.

Walkthrough

Now this mission here's a repeat of The Glass Scale. Here, however, you must shoot down two fighter jets, instead of just one and, as with most other Chapter 2 repeats of hidden missions from Chapter 1, there are missile-launching PAC-3s here rather than ZSU-23 AAAs, so, again, be careful.

Reward

The reward for this mission is 70,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the number of enemies taken out and, in the case of the planes, how they were taken out. The I-2000 is unlocked for 580,000 credits.

Destroy the Aerial Base

Destroy the Aerial Base is the eighth and final hidden mission that can be unlocked in Airforce Delta Storm.

Walkthrough

This mission plays similarly to A Lingering Afterglow in that you must take out ground targets that are mostly standing individually. There are a couple of differences though. First of all, there are three PAC-3s you must destroy, unlike A Lingering Afterglow which involved destroying only two. Second, the targets are even further spread out across the map than they were in A Lingering Afterglow, making this mission slightly more difficult, but not much.

Reward

The reward for this mission is 50,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the number of enemies taken out and, in the case of the planes in the PAL version, how they were taken out. The JSF X-32 is unlocked for 620,000 credits.
