In the anime, at some point, King Vegeta led a group of the most powerful mid-class Saiyan. During one of their assignments, Prince Vegeta executed several inhabitants of a planet while Nappa and three other mid-class Saiyan laughed sadistically. When the inhabitants of the planet defended themselves, the mid-class Saiyan shielded themselves (either with technology or their own energy shield). Then, King Vegeta effortlessly destroyed the survivors with an Explosive Wave while Nappa, his son, and the three Elites watched, of which the resulting Explosive Wave was powerful enough to destroy both the planet they were currently on as well as the neighboring planets.
The first of this group has black hair and black Battle Armor. The second greatly resembles Shugesh in hairstyle, build, and their teal Battle Armor color, though the elite has blonde hair and darker skin. The third has reddish-like hair and black-and-green Battle Armor. Interestingly, each wears a green scouter and their Battle Armor designs are nearly identical from each other's and Bardock's.
In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, King Vegeta is shown flanked by ten Saiyan warriors (presumably the mid-class referred to in a prior interview) wearing white capes when meeting with Cold and Frieza. These Saiyans are later present in King Vegeta's throne room when Paragus seeks an audience with him.
In the anime, after a group of Frieza's Elite did away with a band of low-class Saiyans soldiers, King Vegeta and his greatest warriors staged an invasion of Frieza's spaceship, to which Frieza retaliates by killing King Vegeta and his soldiers. Frieza then obliterates Bardock, Planet Vegeta, and the entire Saiyan race along with it by launching a Supernova through Planet Vegeta.
