The Imperial Mobile Construction Vehicle (MCV) was the primary base construction vehicle used by the Empire of the Rising Sun during the Third World War and The Uprising.


The Imperial MCV was the result of Imperial engineers reverse-engineering the stolen designs of the Allied and Soviet MCVs and using them as a springboard for their own ideas, coming up with a system that is well-specialized for their own military doctrines.

Like its Allied and Soviet counterparts, the Imperial MCV was extremely mobile, able to traverse difficult terrain on land as well as set out to sea in an amphibious operation. Also like its counterparts, it was able to deploy into a stationary construction yard both on land and on water to begin construction. However, instead of building structures directly, each Imperial MCV carried a large number of mobile Nanocores, which could be deployed anywhere on the battlefield.

Despite their ability to deploy anywhere, the Nanocores were unarmed and very fragile, so Imperial MCVs may still need to relocate closer to the deployment area of the Nanocores before constructing them.
