|Unit Profile (as of 3061)|
|Nickname||The Chosen of Turkina|
|Parent Formation||Jade Falcon Tourman|
One notable combat action for the Turkina Keshik was on Von Strang's World; the Turkina Keshik and the Falcon Guards were reconfigured with Arrow IV-rocket launchers and vaporized the fortress of the planet's dictator.
The Turkina Keshik was deployed to Coventry with Jade Falcon forces, but did not participate as a unit. Several warriors from the Keshik were temporarily detached to the Harrier and Red-Tail ad-hoc units, which did see action against the Waco Rangers. Additionally, several Trinaries from Turkina Keshik were attached to Clusters full of younger warriors to help stiffen their resolve.
|Commanding Officers of the Turkina Keshik|
|Khan||Yvonne Hazen||???? – 3020|
|Star Colonel||Elias Crichell||3020|
|Star Colonel||Vandervahn Chistu||3053|
|Khan||Marthe Pryde||3061 – 3062|
- Due to the many demands on the Khan Marthe Pryde's schedule, the Keshik was normally overseen by the unit's XO, often a Star Colonel who was prepared to command a Galaxy. In 3062 the unit's XO was Star Colonel Quillic Mattlov.
Unlike many Clan Keshiks, the Turkina Keshik is always a Cluster in size. This allows them greater tactical flexibility and allows the Khan to dispatch units as needed. Only Trueborn warriors are allowed in the Turkina Keshik.
