|42nd Battle Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3066)|
|Parent Formation||Kindraa Beyl-Grant|
The Forty-second Battle Cluster was a front line cluster of Kindraa Beyl-Grant. In 3048 they provided one Star to Clan Fire Mandrill's Provisional Assault Cluster that competed in the Trials prior to Operation Revival. It was stationed on Foster in 3059. A lack of integrated fighters meant it had to rely on the Kindraa Command Binary for air support.
In 3066 Kindraa Beyl-Grant challenged for the position of saKhan within the Clan in an attempt to bring more Warden causes before the Clan Council. Kindraa Sainze, holder of the office, was infuriated and struck at the Beyl-Grant with three Clusters. The fighting was fierce and Beyl-Grant stood a good chance of being annihilated but Kindraa Payne and Kindraa Faraday-Tanaga intervened and forced the Sainze warriors to withdraw. The Forty-second were destroyed in this conflict.
The cluster had no specialist tactics.
