During the Belkan War, members of the Ludwig family garnered the protection of the popular government through generous donations. After the war's end, however, the family's seven generations had come to an end.
- Krebber Ludwig - shot down and killed during the Allied Forces' Operation Dynamo
- Daniel Ludwig - shot down during Operation Dynamo; served a prison sentence for war crimes, and later became a wandering vagrant
- Gerhard Ludwig - shot down during Operation Dynamo; escaped to a small country in the south, and died of illness
- The three known Ludwig pilots all appear in Merlon, however the pilot that appears will depend on which operation the player chooses to partake in. For example, Krebber Ludwig (Strom) appears if the player takes part in Alpha Team.
