so, am I right in thinking that on the last mission, any aces you haven't bumped off previously will appear in their designated fighters?
Here's a list of when and where we encounter the Kilrathi aces.
: Dakota 3, Port Hedland 3, Hubble's Star 3, Hell's Kitchen 4
: Brimstone 3, Rostov 3, Venice 1, Hell's Kitchen 1, Hell's Kitchen 4
: Gimle 3, Chengdu 2, Rostov 1, Hubble's Star 1, Venice 3, Hell's Kitchen 3, Hell's Kitchen 4
: McAuliffe 3, Gateway 3, Hell's Kitchen 2, Hell's Kitchen 4
It seems that we were mistaking the winning path with the losing path. As far as I can tell, that list is complete. If the ace is already dead when you're supposed to encounter him, he'll be replaced by a regular pilot.
