History[edit]

Originally the command unit for Alpha Galaxy, Alpha Keshik was split into an independent unit at the start of the Golden Century. Alpha and Omega Keshiks were usually stationed on Strana Mechty or Niles, and would rotate between each posting. The Keshiks engage in a wargame with each other before moving from one garrison post to the other. Alpha Keshik consists of a combined arms unit. Alpha Trinary is a Supernova of 'Mechs and Elementals, Gamma Trinary uses heavy vehicles and Elementals, and Beta Trinary is a AeroSpace unit.[1]

Alpha Keshik accompanied Khan Malavai Fletcher into the Inner Sphere and fought on Predlitz. That fighting didn't go well and Alpha suffered serious losses, particularly in the Elemental ranks.[2]

In 3067 the Keshik is stationed on Niles.[3]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Khan Malavai Fletcher.[1]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Khan James Cobb.[3]

Tactics[edit]

Alpha Keshik can engage any enemy in any terrain. It can also join any Hell's Horses unit and function as a command unit. In combat, Alpha Keshik typically uses its 'Mechs and vehicles to pin an opponent in place while the Elementals close in for the kill.
