The Skitari of Kaiyune IV are extremely deadly. Very little of the human is left in them. The Alphas are the exception. They are made from the most successful mercenaries that the tech priests of Kaiyune come across.
The Alphas are ruthless commanders, some have compared them to the Commisars of the Imperial Guard for the heedless way they send wave after wave of their skitari into a fight.
Deadly marksmen, or at least marks-once-men, the skitari of Kaiyune IV hammer their foes with a storm of long range firepower.
Their distinctive blue great coats cover a more traditional red armor plating. Kaiyune IV has been out of touch with Mars for centuries but still follow her precepts. At least, they claim to.
