Fighters and newly bought carriers question

This question might have been asked before, but I could not find an answer.
If you buy a carrier for the intent of giving attacking fighters a legal landing option. Do you have to place the carrier in the intended SZ if 2 of the fighters were destroyed during combat?
Say that UK want to attack a Japanese fleet in SZ36 (outside Burma) with 2 fighters from Persia and 2 from India. If 2 fighters are destroyed, can you say the fighters from Persia perished, and the two from India survived, then place the carrier outside Britain instead?
You can put units out in any “eligible spaces you have controlled since the start of your turn.” (Rules P 22) It doesn’t matter what original plans you had for the carrier.
