The Sixth An Ting Legion was on Skondia when the Jihad started. After the Word of Blake pounded the planet with nuclear and chemical weapons, the Sixth An Ting Legion was destroyed.[4]


The Sixth was commanded by Tai-sa Ch'ien Hsia, who came out of retirement to assume command. He was uncomfortable with Theodore's reforms to the DCMS but recognized that new times needed new tactics. To this end he assigned most tactical planning duties to his executive officer, Chu-sa David Blake.[1]

David Blake was promoted to Tai-sa at some point after 3060 and commanded the unit while it was on Skondia in 3067.[5]


The 6th An Ting Legion is too new to have developed any tactical specialties.

Composition History[edit]


6th An Ting Legion (Regiment/Green/Reliable)[1]

  • CO/1st Battalion: Tai-sa Ch'ien Hsia
  • 2nd Battalion: Chu-sa Kakuri Myazaki
  • 3rd Battalion: Chu-sa Bethany Kobu

6th An Ting Aerospace/Silver Lining (Wing/Regular/Questionable)[1]

  • Wing Commander: Dai-i Trenton McDaniels

- The Silver Lining is a aerospace mercenary company

6th An Ting Armor (Battalion/Regular/Reliable)[1]

  • Armor Commander: Chu-sa Minami Kenju

3rd An Ting Motorized Infantry (Regiment/Green/Reliable)[1]

  • Troop Commander: Tai-sa Blake Hendriksson


The Composition of the unit remains unchanged from 3059. It is unclear whether the 6th An Ting Aerospace still employs Silver Lining in a command role, but given the unit's upgrade in loyalty from questionable to reliable, it is likely the mercenaries are no longer employed.
