Staffen av Slottet (first batches birthed 22 years before the Cylon War) is the Terran clone series formed into the 1312th Allied Interceptor Regiment. Named to denote the cloning centre they came from and the template based on (referred to as candidate) they are now being fielded as part of the frontal armies (most actively utilised Alliance units). This is due to the completion of their training and probationary 'tours' and marks them as 'combat capable' in the eyes of Alliance Fighter Command.
The Candidate was picked for his acceptable mental and physical scoring in pilot exams; of good standing upon further interview with enough minor character flaws identified to keep 'loyal through blackmail' as contingency. Candidates to an Alliance cloning program generally meet a 'middling' standard but are considered exceptionally 'managed' and the template is chosen because he is a reliable officer first, potenitally good pilot second. Clones are not modified genetically and are brought up 'naturally' with a managed physical and mental development program.
Formation of the Regiment has taken twenty years though in the short time thereafter it has proven a solidly performing unit in war games and training exercises. While not ranked as a potential ace unit it has been marshalled for transition into the 'offensive wings' where Regiments are kept aside and specifically trained as 'attack units' to deal with Nationalist aerial opposition. All clones serve together, with a second 'peacetime replacement' batch roughly half the number at the Castle cloning facility. The Alliance Armed Forces cloning initiative typically births 'peacetime replacements' every fifteen years, wartime production involves output maximised to the very ceiling of support capacity.
