History[edit]

The Third Sainze Honor Guard Battle has existed since the founding of the Kindraa.[1] In 3048 they provided two Stars to Clan Fire Mandrill's Provisional Assault Cluster that competed in the Trials prior to Operation Revival.[2] In 3059 and 3067 the Third was stationed on Shadow.[3][4]

In late 3068 the Third was part of a force that attacked Niles along with warriors from Kindraa Mick-Kreese-Kline. They gained Safcon and issued a Batchall for the industrial facility of Industriplex Upsilon. This was defended by the Horse's Eta Galaxy who used the complex's heavy defences to good use, only a surprise flanking maneuver breached the Horse's line to take the facility. Two weeks later in January 3069 the Horse's Beta Galaxy counter attacked and in a swift action defeated the defending Fire Mandrills. Refusing to call in reinforcements the Third and the Seventh Honor Guard Striker fought on in a meat-grinder of a battle that they eventually won. [5]

When Scorpion Khan Ariel Suvorov declared a Trial of Refusal against Garret Sainze's election as ilKhan in February 3071,[6] 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 the Third.[7].

Between 3059 and 3067 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Ellissa Sainze.[1][4]
