The Mobile Construction Vehicle (abbreviated as MCV) is an unarmed vehicle used by all three sides in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge that can deploy into a construction yard.

Bug[edit | edit source]

In Red Alert 2 (through modding) and Yuri's Revenge version 1.000, mind-controlled mobile construction vehicles could be deployed. However, since this control was tied to the mind-controlling unit (in regular cases, only the Yuri's Revenge version of Yuri Prime could do this), if that unit was killed, the MCV could vanish if the construction yard was being undeployed. In Yuri's Revenge patch 1.001, mind-controlled MCVs were prevented from deploying and construction yards from undeploying - except if the mind control is done by a psychic dominator (as the controlled vehicle is not "bound" to any mind-controlling unit) to fix this bug.
