    Anger, over the apparent final loss of the Andurien world to the Free Worlds League, festered among a group of young officers from Shepperton's Grenadiers. In 2583, their discontent erupted and the officers revolted, fleeing with their BattleMechs across the border into the Periphery. There they absorbed assorted malcontents, soldiers of fortune, and even some state-sponsored pirates from near the Capellan Confederation and Free Worlds League border, and began a series of devastating raids against the Free Worlds League and Capellan Confederation worlds.

    For five years, between 2584 and ...

    Battletech Technical Readout 3067
    Prior to the Xin Sheng movement of the early 3060’s the Capellan Confederation was recovering from the horrific losses of the 4th Succession War, and the subsequent purges of Chancellor Romano Liao. While the military was eventually bolstered during this time, and not directly touched by the Clan invasion, the Confederation infrastructure was not quite able to take on a full scale warship project of its own. Subsequently, it had no choice but to join resources with the Free Worlds League.

    While working jointly with the Free Worlds League on the Impavido-class destroyer, Chancellor Sun-Tzu Liao ordered the secret development and construction of a much larger vessel.

    Suffering some casualties, Death Commandos were able to steal the blueprints for the Free Worlds League’s secret Thera-class carrier. Along with the production assistance and technical expertise of the Word of Blake -- (who even kept this secret from their own Primus-in-exile, Thomas Marik) -- the Confederation attempted to build a cruiser that would compete hold its own against the massive Thera.

    Deviating from typical warship design norms, which favored weaponry in lieu of armor, Chancellor Liao insisted that the warship carry as much protection as possible due to the quantity of resources the Confederation was pouring into the ...

    In 2399, at the age of 27, Aleisha Liao was confirmed by the Prefectorate as the third Chancellor of the Capellan Confederation. As the first woman Chancellor of the Capellan Confederation, Chancellor Aleisha Liao proved to be more strong-willed and independent than anyone had anticipated.

    Chancellor Aleisha Liao returned some rights and privileges to the House of Scions, while at the same time she worked methodically to increase the power of the Prefectorate (at the expense of the military). Shrewd observers saw how she played each branch of ...

    OVERVIEW:
    Much like the old joke about the camel, the VND-1R Vindicator is the product of compromise and not inspiration. As Capellan Confederation designers created this 'Mech to fit as many roles as possible, it is capable of fire support, point defense, and offense, though only in lackluster fashion.

    The First Succession War proved disastrous for the Confederation, who lost all but one of its 'Mech producing facilities. The remaining 'Mech plant, on the heavily industrialized planet of Capella, was limited to the production of 'Mechs less than 60 tons. Also, because the Confederation had fe materials to build 'Mechs, its engineers decided to to build a 'Mech that was capable of several roles, yet could be built with meager resources.

    The Vindicator was designed in 2826, during the lull between the First and Second Succession War. The first Vindicators had machine guns mounted on their left arms instead of the small laser seen on current models.

    CAPABILITIES:
    Despite its mediocre performance, the ...

    OVERVIEW:
    The Hetzer Wheeled Assault Gun was designed to provide cheap fire support to troops assigned to planets important enough to protect, but not important enough to warrant a full garrison of troops. Primary customers are the Capellan Confederation and the Periphery.

    Although the Crusher Super Heavy Cannon gives the vehicle enormous fire potential, the Hetzer's lack of a turret and other diverseified weaponry make it a nightmare for crews taking it into non-defensive combat situations.

    Another problem with the Hetzer is that it is a wheeled vehicle. Though this keeps production costs down (the whole point of the Hetzer), it restricts the vehicle's mobility. Troops can always tell when a Hetzer is around because paths must be cut to allow it to travel on any terrain that is not flat. ...

    Liao, originally named Cynthiana in honor of Elias Liao's murdered wife, was settled in 2189 by Elias Liao and a band of refugees.

    Cynthiana was a pastoral planet, its only distinguishing characteristic was its immense grasslands, some the size of continents. After Elias Liao arranged for the import of several dozen varieties of livestock and flora, Cynthiana became one of the major suppliers of sheep, thoroughbred horses, and food to local star systems.


    In 2202 Elias Liao died, and Victor Liao, Elias' grandson, was chosen as the new governor of Liao. Although Elias' sons, Victor and David Paul, initially opposed the change, ...

    So, where can one find canon information specifically about the Capellan Confederation and House Liao?

    Well, there are oodles of Battletech books out there, from novels, to rules, to sourcebooks, and so on detailing various factions, personalities, and events of the MechWarrior universe. The aim of this thread is to weed through the chaff - (really who cares about those FedRats and their civil war?) - and provide you canon information regarding the Capellan Confederation. Whether it's a novel, a sourcebook, or some other source - as long as it's canon ...
