The Mandalorian super commandos were a group of Human Death Watch soldiers loyal to Darth Maul's Shadow Collective during the Clone Wars. They were formed after Maul took over Mandalore and killed the Death Watch's leader, Pre Vizsla, usurping his command.
History[edit | edit source]
Following Darth Maul's takeover of Mandalore, the Mandalorian super commandos were opposed by Pre Vizsla's lieutenant, Bo-Katan Kryze, and her rebel Death Watch soldiers. Kryze and her loyalists tried to honor Vizsla by disputing an outsider's rule of Mandalore, resisting Maul's control. The super commandos guarded the Sundari Royal Palace under Maul's reign, they were used as both guards and soldiers, who tried to track down the escaping Satine Kryze and her companions.
Later on, they also pursued Obi-Wan Kenobi when he rescued the Duchess, and later the Nite Owls, who helped Kenobi to escape from Mandalore, after being imprisoned by Maul. In the meantime, at least four super commandos who guarded the Sundari Royal Palace were choked to death when Darth Sidious arrived on Mandalore to combat Maul and his brother, Savage Opress, who raised his attention with their actions.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
The super commandos utilized the same type of armor as the rest of the Mandalorians. However, their armor was primarily colored red, and at least one commando had a helmet modified to incorporate horn-like growths in honor of Maul and Opress. A large number of them had clawed handprints over their helmets, similar to the handprint of Rishi eel blood on clone trooper Echo's chestplate.
