Overview:
    The Sentinel, a Star League-era design secretly supplied by ComStar to the Draconis Combine
    in the 3030s, fought its first battle in centuries during the Kurita counterthrust at the
    Davion planet Exeter during the War of 3039. Along with the Crab, the Sentinel played a
    major role in the Combine's destruction of vast areas of the planet. The appearance of the
    Star League design confused and frightened the Davion MechWarriors, who had not been trained
    to fight these 'Mechs from the past. Some experts argue that the 'Mech's effect on enemy
    morale alone turned the tide in at least three battles fought during that war.
    
    Unlike the Com Guards' Sentinels, which incorporate a Streak short-range missile system
    into their weapons array, House Kurita's Sentinels are equipped with the common Marklin Mini
    SRM-2 launcher. Some Kurita MechWarriors have complained about the Marklin, but given its
    solid record in combat, the complaints likely arise more from Kurita distaste for using
    "foreign" weapons system produced by the Magistracy of Canopus than from genuine weaknesses
    in performance.
