This unit (a.k.a. the T280 space construction vehicle) is the main unit in the Terran race. They perform many different tasks around the base. They can:

  • Harvest for minerals and gases which then can be used to purchase buildings,
  • Construct building that the player commands.
  • Repair damaged vehicles

Because the SCV is a vehicle with a person operating it,the unit is classified as a mechanical biological unit which means that it can be affected by some spells from Heal and Repair to Spawn Broodlings.

The SCVs are the only units in the Terran that can harvest for minerals from mineral fields and gas from vespene geysers. They use fusion cutters to extract the minerals of which it can carry 8 minerals maximum. For the unit to extract gas, a refinery must be built on top of the geysers to extract from it. Each unit can collect 16 units of gas at a time.

They construct the buildings by the players assigning an SCV to create one and the SCV will continue to work on it until it is completed. the SCV also has the option to pause repairing, and if the SCV is killed whilst in the middle of creating a structure, it will not be finished unless another SCV is assigned to the job.

These units are also good for repairing as they can repair damaged mechanical units as well as damaged buildings and multiple SCVs can be selected to repair a single unit or building. It does however cost resources to repair, and depending on what is getting repaired, it can cost minerals or both minerals and gas.

It makes its appearance in Starcraft II as the construction/harverster unit with extras added on.

  • The SCV's can take cover in the Command Center (up to 5 units and 10 units if Neostell Frames is researched))
  • When one is patrolling, it would repair any structure or unit that comes close by to it.
