This is a list of named aces and star units in Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception, as well as their locations and spawn requirements.

Named Aces

Named aces follow the same conventions as previous Ace Combat titles, where their name will appear below their unit's name (similar to ALECT showing up below the Alect Squadron's aircraft). Shooting them down unlocks their aircraft's Special 1 color for the player.
