Ace Combat Zero Perfect Guidebook
Page 175-188: Ace Pilot Profiles
9/7/2019 - Translations of pages 175-188 of the Ace Combat Zero Perfect Guide. The Ace Pilot Profile section of the book focuses on the allied and enemy ace pilots seen in Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War. All bios are presented alphabetically using the call signs of the pilots.
TaskForce23 performed the translation of text from Japanese to English with the scans of the pages from Ribbon-Blue. Emblems created by Mastertulkas and recreations of the identification cards by Cae Lumis were utilized to design this page to match the style of the scanned pages of the guide. The scanned pages are included with these translations, next to the identification cards.
The ID cards in particular have had extensive effort put into them. They have been faithfully recreated with bar codes, expiration dates and more. All of these details which are hard to read on the source material pages unless seen at maximum zoom. This effort goes down to even the most minute detail. For example, the golden deltas on the Belkan identifications cards were found not to be a single color, but textured in design. This detail was cross-referenced using the guide pages under a magnifying glass and an existing image of Detlef Fleisher from the game Ace Combat Zero, which displayed his military rank and insignia. Careful observation under high magnification shows shading on the deltas themselves, which gives away that detail.
