Tian-zong (75t)
Model by Primus
The heavily armored, hard-hitting Tian-zong is a post-Jihad ’Mech design first fielded by House Liao’s Capellan Confederation in 3090. Designed with stealth capabilities, good maneuverability, and long-distance firepower, this machine can deliver massive damage with little fear of retaliation, and has become a favorite for many elite Capellan units.

CC081-09B hails from a variant production run that exchanges the heavier standard Gauss rifles for two lightweight versions and uses the reclaimed mass for more powerful lasers. These alterations give the variant Tian-zong better reach than the standard model, though it now runs much hotter in combat. Hoa Phiri, the current pilot of this particular Tian-zong, has nicknamed her machine "Golden Fist," implying that her authority comes directly from the "emperor," Daoshen Liao himself. (Gold is the exclusive color of the Chinese emperors—and the Capellan Chancellors, by extension.) In combat, Phiri prefers stealth and long-distance attacks to outright brawling, as befits a political officer.
