|31st Vanguard Striker Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3067)|
|Parent Formation||Kindraa Kline|
In 3067 two clusters from Kindraa Mick-Kreese joined Iota Galaxy of Clan Blood Spirit for an assault on Clan Star Adder on Tathis. Jealousy prompted Kindraa Kilne to send the 27th Vanguard Battle, 31st Vanguard Striker and 42nd Vanguard Battle Clusters to join the assault. Joining the battle late, Kindraa Kline dropped into the middle of the combat, and the resulting confusion inflicted heavy losses on everyone involved, with many incidents of friendly fire. The Kindraa took seventy-five percent casualties and resulted in the destruction of the Cluster.
