Overview:
    At the end of the Fourth Succession War, the Capellan Confederation had lost half its worlds
    to aggressors. Of the more than 150 Capellan regular and mercenary battalions at the
    beginning of the war, 65 had been utterly destroyed and an additional 46 had been captured
    or had defected. In capturing such a large swath of Capellan territory, the Armed Forces of
    the Federated Suns juggernaut had destroyed that nation's pride in itself.
    
    When Sun Tzu Liao assumed the Celestial Throne in 3052, he immediately began several
    programs to restore the Confederation's reputation as a powerful nation, not only in the
    eyes of the other Great Houses, but also in the hearts of its own citizens. The latest and
    most important of these programs is the Xin Sheng movement, meaning new birth. Capitalizing
    on his position as First Lord of the new Star League, Sun-Tzu Liao has begun to preach
    "manifest destiny" among his people.
    
    To aid in this endeavor, Sun-Tzu recently commissioned a series of new BattleMechs
    intended to epitomize the essence of House Liao. The first of these designs has overt tones
    of Chinese design worked into the armor of the 'Mech, similar to Draconis Combine 'Mechs
    that clearly display Japanese workmanship. Chancellor Liao named the new design Ti Ts'ang -
    King of the Earth's Womb and the lord of Yen-Lo-Wang.

Capabilities:
    The Ti Ts'ang is the Capellan Confederation's first attempt at a 'Mech equipped with a
    weapon designed for hand-to-hand combat: an ax. With the success of such new designs as the
    Scarabus, Nightsky and Berserker as well as the older Hatchetman and Axman BattleMechs,
    Chancellor Liao wished to create a 'Mech along the same lines for his own military.
    
    Relying heavily on weapons purchased from the Free Worlds League, the Ti Ts'ang mounts
    a plethora of extended-range medium and small lasers that give it a blistering fusillade of
    firepower at short ranges. The Confederation may have problems purchasing these weapons,
    however, as relations between it and the Free Worlds League deteriorate.
    
    The most stunning feature of the new 'Mech is the inclusion of triple-strength myomer,
    a technology pioneered by the Federated Suns. In his speech announcing the debut of this
    'Mech, Sun-Tzu said, "It is time we overcame our fear of symbols from the past. That we were
    tricked into using defective myomer during the Fourth War is common knowledge. That it aided
    in our most ignominious defeat is recorded in every Great House's history books. With this
    BattleMech, we conquer the demon of failure and show our enemies that we have the will to
    use any tool available to fulfill our destiny."

Deployment:
    The first Ti Ts'angs were delivered to Capellan units stationed on the border of the St.
    Ives Compact. One was also presented to the Fourth Tau Ceti Rangers, a mercenary unit that
    recently became a Capellan Confederation House unit.
