Sinoviet Heavy Shipyard
The SinoViet Heavy Shipyard is a large structure contracted by the United Nations Space Command.
It excels in providing the biggest, best, and most expensive ships the UNSC's warfleets needs to defend its interests.
|«||Allows construction of Capital Ships. Build multiple factories to construct more ships at the same time.
The Shipyard's description
When the UNSC approached Reyes-McLee to refit the Halcyon the company was initially hesitant. However, they soon found out the UNSC was sparing no expense, or at least were not checking their receipts, so Reyes-McLee made a fortune from the deal.
After learning of Reyes-McLee's partnership with the UNSC, SinoViet Heavy Machinery banded together with various other small shipyard companies that had previously been employed to construct ships for the UNSC and launched a class-action lawsuit against both Reyes-McLee and the UNSC.
The central issue of the case was whether the UNSC was allowed to give exclusive construction rights to Reyes-McLee, a practice that would effectively give the company a monopoly on ship construction and would drown out any competition. The suit was met with universal condemnation from the populace at large, but was actually ruled in the claimants favor. A similar contract was given to the various companies that gave them the rights to build 'light' ships, (i.e. frigates and cruisers) for the UNSC, which later evolved to allow construction of the strongest and bigger ships the UNSC would come to field.
SinoViet Heavy Shipyards are actually manned by a variety of different corporations because under the terms of the agreement they had to use a universal shipyard design. Many designs were submitted and a panel of impartial peers created. SinoViet's design won the contract and has since made a fortune.
Weapons and Tactical Usage
This is going to be one of your most-built structures behind the Oroses Commercial Station and the Sinoviet Dry Dock. Though it should be built in fewer numbers, given that frigate-type ships are always going to comprise the bulk of your fleet and need to be built in large numbers quickly, it is the only way to acquire the UNSC's many powerful capital ships. Placing one or two per gravity well should suffice unless you aim to dedicate one planet to increased capital production.
The structure was previously named the "Reyes-McLees Heavy Construction Yard."
'Reyes-McLee Heavy Construction Yard' is a non canon facility.
