The Dainwu ("Great Tiger") was an Overlord-class DropShip serving with Warrior House Hiritsu of the Capellan Confederation as of 3058. It was painted in the Hiritsu colors of green and black, and bore the House insignia.
During the conquest of Kaifeng in 3058 the Dainwu carried six Thrush aerospace fighters, but not its full complement of thirty-six BattleMechs which were instead divided across the Dainwu and two Union-class vessels (one of them the Lao-tzu) so that House Hiritsu's tactical flexibility would not be limited.
