|71st Firestorm Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3073)|
|Parent Formation||Kindraa Mattila-Carrol|
In September 3073 Kindraa Mattilla-Carrol were under heavy attack from Steel Viper forces on Glory. Khan Carrol had gathered almost all her warriors here to defend vital facilities. As the fighting progressed an allied Clan Goliath Scorpion force moved to the system and landed near the city of Portage their fighters bombed the Viper positions allowing their ground troops to sweep in behind the Vipers and crush them against the Mandrill forces. A dispute broke out between the allied Clan forces, but as they were settling their differences in a Trial of Refusal the Vipers counter-attacked. Both Clans were caught off guard and Khan Carrol was killed. With her death the Mandrills fell into disarray breaking down into small pockets that were easily overwhelmed and wiped out.
