2. Introduction
----------------
----------------

The purpose of this guide is to tell you where to find each individual ace and
what they'll have on them. I know I would have appreciated this when I was 
searching out the last few aces, so hopefully you will too.

I advise you to use it like this:

-Identify the plans/weapons you want
-Ctrl+F 'plan/weapon'
-And you'll find the mission where you get it, the ace (with title) who drops 
it and where you can find them in the mission.

Alternatively, now that I have added the title list you can just find which
aces the gaps in your title list (in Avan's room) correspond to, as well as
the missions in which they are found. Note that the list is organised page 
by page and then from left to right, i.e.:

1   2   3
4   5   6 
7   8   9

For example, you may have

Strong    ???   Springwind

Ctrl+F 'strong' and the missing title will be the next one down, in this case
Kindly, which belongs to Naggie the Kindly, the ace in Mid-Rank Lancer Exam.



3. Ace Locations/Drops 
---------------------
---------------------

Default Form:

Mission Name
Ace: Ace's name and title
Location: Area and co-ordinates of the ace's position 
(Aces do not move until seen)
Drops: R&D plan dropped by Ace, 1st weapon/turret dropped by ace, 
2nd weapon/turret dropped by ace.

Note: Where EX is written at the start of a mission's name, it denotes that it 
is not available until the second time the relevant month is reached by the
player.
Note: Aces will always drop a plan the first time they are defeated (and the
mission is completed). Subsequently they can drop one of 3 things: 1 of the two
weapons/turrets listed in this guide or a number of R&D materials, which are 
not given here.

Turret plans are denoted below by the form Tu###. 
Part plans are denoted below by the form Pa###.
