In Into the Breach, from the shopping UI after defending an island, does permanently assigning a pilot to an island in exchange for reputation remove the pilot from your hangar?
I don't want to permanently lose any pilots from my hangar for future playthroughs, but it seems like good option to trade in extra pilots for rep because otherwise they are just diddling around doing nothing.
I didn't see an explanation on wiki or blogs about the 'permanently assign to island' mechanic for pilots, can somebody who has tried it explain that please?
I would try it myself but I don't feel like cheating and since it is a rogueish-like I am fearing permanent consequences. (but please correct me if that is not the case, thanks!)
