Mihajlo Mesic, callsign Edinorog, was an ace pilot in the Estovakian Air Force. He was formerly one of the few ace pilots of the Lyes United Front during the Estovakian Civil War. After the civil war, he led the Estovakian Air Force's Central Forces Precinct Air Force 1st Aviation Regiment, 1st Tactical Fighter Squadron.[1]

Edinorog is one of the named aces found in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation. He appears in "Vitoze Aerial Defense" if the player is on Expert or Ace difficulty. His livery for the aircraft becomes available for purchase after shooting him down.


Estovakian Civil War[]

During the civil war, Mesic achieved notoriety for being one of the very few ace pilots within the ranks of the Lyes United Front. He earned renown for destroying an enemy chain of command during the civil war. Due to the LUF's devastating loss at the hands of the Eastern Faction, Mesic's team was forced to disband and reorganize into the new Estovakian Air Force.[1]

Emmeria-Estovakia War[]

Mesic's renown led to his reassignment to fly as a bomber escort during the Emmeria-Estovakia War.[1] When Estovakia commenced the bombing of Vitoze, Mesic was sent with the attacking bomber squadron. The squadron and escorts ran into heavier resistance from the Emmerian military than anticipated. Mesic was subsequently shot down,[1] along with the entire bomber squadron.[2]
