The new Warrior House was noted for using every weapon in its arsenal, including Battle Armor and Combat Vehicles which traditional Warrior House do not normally use, including philosophy of the Lorix Order.[2]

Despite fighting hard, eventually the Republic unit forced the Tsang Xiao warriors off-world with heavy losses.[4] During this fighting, the Tao MechWorks plant on Styk was gutted.[5]

Alongside the Kraken Unleashed mercenary unit, Warrior House Tsang Xiao defended Shuen Wan in 3117. The two Capellan units fought the 4th Oriente Hussars to a standstill and forced them to withdraw from the world with serious losses.[7]

Dark Age[edit]

Warrior House Tsang Xiao served by taking and holding areas of strategic value during counter-thrusts pushed by the Federated Suns during the CCAF operations against. Tsang Xiao would do this by bounding forward with each new planet attacked by the CCAF and taking control of defensive strong points. The few attempts by the AFFS to strike back at Capellan landing zones were rapidly repelled by them.[8]
