The Mobile Construction Vehicle is an example of the basic unit for each side, nearly every multiplayer game starts with one Construction yard created from MCV.

Background[edit | edit source]

When unpacked, the MCV allows the player to construct structures and support structures directly from it, also providing 10 power. It is heavily armored, but slow moving, so concentrated tank fire and waves of aerial bombing would make short work of the MCV, especially because it is unarmed, so it is highly recommended to send escorts with these vehicles at all times.

The Scrin equivalent is the Drone Ship.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Call for transport
Deploy This command orders the MCV to deploy into a Construction Yard. It can only be performed on flat terrain that has sufficient room for the MCV to unpack (Ctrl+A).
