19th Sainze Rear Guard Striker (Clan Fire Mandrill)

19th Sainze Rear Guard Striker Cluster
Unit Profile (as of 3072)
Parent Formation Kindraa Sainze
Disbanded 3072 (Destroyed)


The Nineteenth Sainze Rear Guard Battle Cluster was a second line Cluster of Kindraa Sainze. In 3059 and 3067 the Cluster was stationed on Dagda.[1][2]

When Garret Sainze was elected to ilKhan in February 3071 he did not handle the position well. Disgusted at the entire political circus taking place, Scorpion Khan Ariel Suvorov declared a Trial of Refusal against Sainze's election as ilKhan, declaring him an incompetent leader with delusions of glory.[3] With no choice but to accept or lose what little respect he had left, Sainze met Suvorov's forces on Shadow. In a three-day campaign four Clusters from his Kindraa battled a like number of Goliath Scorpions; by the end of the fighting Sainze had perished, along with most of his warriors.[4] The newly elected Khan, Amanda Carrol, authorised Kindraa Mick-Kreese-Kline to absorb the shattered remnants of Kidraa Sainze in March 3071. She saw the Mandrills would need to unite as further challenges would result from Garret Sainze's death.[5] It appears likely that the Nineteenth was the last functioning cluster and was absorbed. The expected challenges came quickly and by January 3072 Kindraa Mick-Kline-Kreese-Sainze had ceased to exist.


In 3059 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Draymon Sainze.[6] By 3067 the commander was Star Colonel Jek Sainze.[2]


The Cluster had no special tactical traits.
