The Allied Mobile Construction Vehicle (MCV) was the primary base construction vehicle used by the Allies during the Third World War and The Uprising.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Allied mobile construction vehicle was a massive, fully amphibious tracked vehicle. It was able to traverse rough terrain and float across open water, giving Allied commanders unprecedented an unprecedented ability to project precise military power.

The MCV could deploy into a stationary construction yard, which could construct both production and defensive structures using Standardised Production Automated Manufacturing (SPAM) Modules. SPAM modules allowed the fabrication of a wide variety of weapon systems from a single universal component, and was also used in the production structures constructed by the MCV. In addition, the MCV was also equipped with the Virtually Operated Industrial Production (VOIP) system, which allowed it to remotely enable the production of advanced technology.

MCVs were able to carry enough raw materials to be able to deploy a small base and fighting force even when cut off from supplies, and quickly construct a large advanced base when well-supplied. Since the demand for forward bases during the war was expected to far outweigh the number of Allied MCVs, they were expected to leave behind many small, stationary bases when they relocate across the battlefield.

MCV commanders were experienced veterans who have seen a minimum of three tours of duty.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Both of the Allied MCV's primary systems are RTS in-jokes.
    • SPAM is a reference to "spamming", which, in the context of RTS games, refers to the act of attacking with a large number of a single unit.
    • VOIP stands for "Voice over Internet Protocol" in real life. It is a method for transmitting audio signals over the Internet, and is commonly used for the voice chat function in online video games, including Red Alert 3.
