The Crane is a structure available for construction for both the GDI and Nod.

Background[edit | edit source]

Similar to the construction yard, the Crane is equipped with nano-assemblers, computers, and control units. This allows two structures to be constructed at the same time, allowing a forward base to be established faster[1].

In-game[edit | edit source]

As such, each crane allows for construction of a building simultaneously with another crane or construction yard. Cranes are only built by MCVs, and cannot be built by other cranes.

GDI crane operators tend to get bored in their line of work and often "do the wave" with their crane's arm.[2]

The Scrin had their own version of the crane, known as a Foundry.

As of Tiberium Wars patch 1.07, Cranes are unable to construct base defenses. This can occasionally present problems in the campaign, i.e. in Nod's mission to take Washington DC where no Construction Yard is initially present.
