Off the coast of Pacifica
1) Protect the hospital ship COMPASSION

2) Eliminate any Black Hats in the area

3 Patrol Boats

9 Boat Balloons

6 Black Hat Brigands

Ace Dixon in a Brigand

The Fortune Hunters' previous activities come back to haunt them - the CCCP zeppelin "Workers' Voyage" that Zachary and his gang attacked and eliminated its escort in a previous mission, was finally downed at Pacifica's coast. It is now under siege by a new mysterious pirate gang, the Black Hats, who intend to abduct the passengers and ask for ransom! They are also menacing the Red Cross hospital ship "Compassion" which is attempting to render aid.


Watch Briefing[]

Recommended Plane[]

As the enemies will just be patrol boats, boat balloons and Brigands, use either a Devastator or a Brigand.

Recommended Loadout[]

A mix of armor-piercing and dum-dum ammunition, and flak rockets. Don't use flaks against enemy boats near the Compassion though, as the large AOE will damage the Compassion too; use dum-dum instead.


At the beginning of this mission, 3 boats are attacking the Red Cross hospital ship "Compassion", which is trying to help the downed CCCP Zeppelin "Worker's Voyage", that you crippled in a previous mission! After a while, 6 more boats are descending on hot air balloons. Blow up the boats and the balloons before they land and attack the ship. When you destroy 3 of the 6 balloons, 3 Black Hat Brigands will show up. Ignore them until you destroy all the balloons, because if the "Compassion" is sunk, you fail your mission. Once that set of Black hats are shot down, 3 more balloons will descend and they will be joined by 3 Brigands and Ace Dixon in a Brigand. Get the balloons first, then take out the Ace before you attack the other Brigands. Dock with the Pandora when everything is done.

Completing this mission will unlock one memento.
