If the Mandos were to face off against the Noghri, who do you think would come out on top? (Not sure if this has ever been covered.)

Mandos, of course. The Noghri have knives. Mandos have rocket launchers.

What if they jammed the rocket blasters with their knives?

Mandalorians have invincible armor (Traviss armor), though sometime not so impervious armor (Denning armor). Still, it's enough to turn Noghri blades aside. Advantage Mandalorians.

Mandalorians are typically big, clumsy, oafish mercs who just brute force their way through a problem. The Nogrhi are more patient and stealthy. When launched into war, the Mandos start out with a bang and then get their shebs beat by the Jedi/Republic. When the Nogrhi go to war, they assassinate the leader of the opposing force and steal away with victory. Even the mighty Thrawn could not predict them. Advantage Noghri.

If the Noghri and Mandalorians went to war, both sides could opt for allies. Traditionally the Mandalorians are terrible at politics and have no allies, unless they're being used by the Sith. The Noghri on the other hand, are friends with Lady Vader. They could get help from the Republic/GA and/or the Jedi. Advantage Noghri.

Outcome: The Mandos come in hard and heavy kicking Noghri butt with their armor, their heavy weapons, and their machines of death and destruction. The Noghri strike back in the night, assassinating high level Mandalorian commanders, terrorizing supply lines, and crippling the Mando war machine. The Noghri's allies step in and establish firm dominance on the battlefield, kicking the Mandos off the planet and forcing them to return to Mandalore.

Victory Noghri.

Noghri would win. When they first encountered the Empire, they made mincemeat out of Vader's personal troopers, those who were considered the best of the best. Now that they have more advance tech and tactics, I saw that they would easily defeat any army in open combat.

But then again, lately they've been used to prove how badass some group is, so maybe their training has been slacking lately.

Sounds cool. Thank-you for the post. It would be pretty cool to see them go head-to-head in a book or comic.

Personally I want to see more of the Noghri Jedi they mentioned in FOTJ. I mean that there is just pure awesomeness. (not too mention Noghri Jedi would certainly be beneficial in a war against Mandalorians who are known to be severely lacking in Force sensitivity).

Now we could get more Mando books (which could be good or bad), but imagine Noghri Jedi books. Pure win!

It does seem like they don't much attention anymore. I would to read a book based primarily on Noghri and/or Noghri Jedi. I jusr don't get why they don't get and attention anymore.
