This is a 28 mission campaign integrated into the standalone extended gaming and mission development system wolfman-MC2X. wolfman-MC2X is based on the released source code for MechCommander 2.
It is now possible to select the pilot to be deployed by the salvage craft. When salvage craft is called a list of available pilots shows (see screenshot of my testing). You can select manually within a limited timeframe or the best pilot will be selected automatically.
