Lol, CHUD.

-------------------------------

Our first matchup is....

Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron.

Spoiler:

A cavalry officer, he joined the German Air Service in 1915, joined the elite Jasta 2 in 1916, became commander of Jasta 11 in 1917 and then took command of an entire wing--Jadgdeschwader 1, also known as the "flying circus"--the first ever command of its type in world history.

He was shot down and killed in 1918 over Amien.

He amassed 80 kills in his short career.

He's the best known fighter pilot of all time.

Versus.

Soontir Fel, Baron of the Empire

Spoiler:

Born on Corella, Baron Fel enrolled in the Imperial Academy and trained as a TIE pilot. He excelled in training.

However, outside events conspired to send him to the 181st Imperial Fighter Wing, which he quickly transformed into the Empire's premiere fighter unit.

Defecting to the New Republic and joining Rogue Squadron and then being recaptured by the Empire, he found himself in the employ of Thrawn's Empire of the Hand and later became a high ranking officer in the Chiss Ascendancy.

He would be disgraced and removed, but his son would become Emperor.

The Red Baron, because Soontir Fel can't seem to decide which side to fight for...

Hmmm tough. But I voted Red Baron. I haven't read many books that have Fel in them but I have read a few which have his son, who I think is a bit of a douche. The Red Baron is also real, more tangible. As a fictional character Soontir was at the mercy of some good and some not so good writers. The Baron carved out his own legend which wont be forgotten for a looong time.

Oh, and the Baron flew without shields

Not knowing the whole story will do that.

He entered the Imperial Academy, then defected to the Rebels when he saw what the Emperor truly was: a biased, alien-hating misogynist dinosaur. He was later captured by Isard and handed over to Thrawn, who convinced him that there was a threat outside the galaxy far more dangerous and important to the Imperials and Rebels than anything that had ever appeared before. So that's why he stuck with Thrawn.

It wasn't until Isard sent him to die that he defected, though.

Everyone knows the Red Baron whereas only nerds know Fel.
