Starcraft 2 - Terran Military Organizations
This is a project that I have created which features some Terran units and buildings from each Terran organization in the Starcraft Universe. These are fan interpretations on how they supposed to look like in in-game and even lore. If anyone is interested in joining this project, please PM me or write a comment.
List of Terran factions in progress:
- Moebius Corps / Moebius Foundation - 70 %
- Kel - Morian Combine - 20 %
- Umojan Protectorate - W.I.P (Concepts of unit and building models are still planned)
- Terran Dominion - W.I.P (Concepts of unit and building models are still planned)
- Defenders of Man - W.I.P (Concepts of unit and building models are still planned)
Possible other terran factions such as sub factions:
- Dominion Kill Squad
- Dominion Elite Guard
- Raynor's Raiders
Some new or updated models sometime required HoTS and LotV dependencies or else your map will get banned or the unit's model will not function properly during gameplay or not display the textures correctly. Also, I don't take requests and you are allowed to make ideas/suggestions.
These models can be used in custom maps or mods. Also, with the release of the Nova Covert Ops mission pack by Blizzard, most of my future models will be needing a Nova Covert Ops dependency in the editor.
In reply to Hammer107:
Wishful thinking? Who knows, only time will tell if you'll decide to make Moebius variants of the Merc units, probably not, and it is just wishful thinking to be honest.
STILL, it would be interesting to see how you would make the Blackhammer class of thor, compared to how Blizzard made it.
Moebius Corps - Marine Technician
Marine Technicians , also known as marine engineers, were specialized marines acting as a support unit equipped with engineering tools such as fusion cutters and fusion welders for repairing vehicles in the battlefield and maintaining ship engines and turrets as well as other garrison structures such as bunkers. They were also deployed to accompany stealth covert ops units such as ghost/spectres in infiltration missions for slicing through terminal systems to hack enemy gun turrets and retrieve vital data needed in their mission. These technicians were seen by the time of the End War started and were employed by the Moebius Corps to sabotage numerous equipment and facilities of their enemies such as damaging the gravity stabilizers on the Dominion space platform "Sky Shield" during the Battle of Korhal.
Updated versions of the Marauder Engineer (now called as Field Engineer), Shredder (now as the sensor drone), and Assault transport ship for the Moebius Corps faction.
Moebius Corps - Field Engineer
The Moebius Field Engineers were marauders specialized in the range of engineering techniques, repairing vehicles, and construction of defense turrets. They were equipped with a marauder heavy suit resembling the Kel-Morian Hammer Securities marauder unit, a backpack on their backs to store deployable auto turrets and an arm claw to pick up auto turret modules for deployment and can be used in close range combat against weaker enemies such as zerglings. They were armed with a grenade launcher for dealing against armored units such as stalkers, dragoons, and roaches.
Moebius Corps - Sensor Drone
Moebius Sensor drones were quadrupedal robotic drones modified from the widow mines and used by the Moebius Corps to detect cloaked threats such as Dominion ghosts/spectres or burrowed zerg creatures in certain areas such as on lab research installations. When they detected a cloaked threat, the drone will detonate an electronic pulse to damage the cloaked enemy unit and revealing it. Later, some sensor drones, modeled after from the Moebius Corps' sensor drones, were also used by the Defenders of Man to defend General Carolina Davis' compund on Vardona during the Defenders of Man Insurgency.
Moebius Corps - Assault Transport Ship (V2)
By the time of the Second Great War, Dominion engineers made improvements and modifications to the Hercules-class troop transport ships deployed by the Terran Dominion Armed Forces by adding gatling guns for defensive purposes against enemy air units, and wing flaps and a fin for stable flight. This results to the creation of the assault transport ship. These transports were used by the Terran Dominion during Second Great War and the Moebius Corps during the End War.
The end is nigh, all that is left are structures and specialty units to replace, hope to see if you add any more totally custom units into the mix.
Updated versions of the Predator, Warbot (now called as Defense bot), and HERC for the Moebius Corps faction.
Moebius Corps - Predator (V2)
The Moebius Predators, also known by Dominion Marines as black tigers or black cats, were AI cybercats deployed by the Moebius Corps to serve as an anti- infantry specialist unit and security robots during the End War. They were modified by Moebius engineers by giving it additional armored plates for increased protection against enemy gunfire and special equipment which enhances the lightning field attack of the Predator while using its titanium claws.
Moebius Corps - Defense Bot
Defense bots are Moebius Corps combat robots tasked to defend their laboratories and other space installations throughout the Koprulu Sector. They were outfitted with defense cannons as their primary weapon to deal with lightly armored enemies such as marines and zerglings but were not effective against armored targets such as goliaths and marauders. It can also switch it defense cannon weapon to missile launchers or flamethrowers in order to increase its effectiveness against tougher enemies.
Moebius Corps - HERC (V2)
The HERC was rumored to be a frontline heavy infantry deployed by the Kel-Morian Combine during the Second Great War and End War. It was later utilized by several terran factions such as the Moebius Corps to take on waves of light units, and are immune to acidic explosions.
Moebius Corps - MULE (V3)
Updated version of the Moebius Corps MULE with new diffuse texture.
M.U.L.E's are utilized by several Terran military organizations such as the Moebius Corps to excavate and mine minerals faster compared to SCVs.
Moebius Corps - SCV (V2)
Updated version of the Moebius Corps SCV model. The model is made from the Nova Covert Ops campaign version of the SCV with parts of the Warhound's upper body and shields, and the Hellbat's legs.
The Moebius Corps deployed SCVs during mining operations to harvest minerals and vespene gas on various planets or asteroid fields and were employed to construct forward bases during major battles and space installations.
In reply to Hammer107:
If you ever update the Kel-Morians, will you redesign the SCV or will you leave the units alone and moving onto their structures, then do a different faction?
In reply to VarientTFoR:
Moebius Corps - Marine Commander
Marine Commanders were officers commanding at least hundreds of marines in the field including medics and accompanied by marine sergeants to serve them as their second-in-command. Within the Moebius Corps, the marine commanders wore black colored CMC armor with special shoulderpads on each side and a radio backpack. The shoulderpad with bolts and orange trim bars on the right side represents their status as commanders. They were armed with blaster rifles capable of penetrating through CMC combat suits, and were equipped with pulse grenades for clearing out multiple enemy infantry units at the same time except for enemy vehicles.

Moebius Corps - Heavy Assault Transport
Heavy assault transports are armored tanks utilized by the Moebius Corps to transport their troops in the battlefield during the End War. These transport tanks possess tough heavy armor capable of shrugging off enemy gunfire and were outfitted with armor penetrating round loaded shrike turrets enabling them to target at enemy infantry and vehicles alike.

Moebius Corps - Marine Sergeant
Marine Sergeant were marine officers commanding a squad of marines in the field and sometimes served as a second-in-command to marine lieutenants or marine commanders. Some sergeants wore customized marine armor with few equipment such as a special shoulder pad and radio backpack. Within the Moebius Corps, the marine sergeants wore a black colored and specialized version of the unidentified CMC Combat armor variant worn by mercenary forces and Dominion Marines and were equipped with gauss rifles with an incendiary grenade launcher attachment.
Moebius Corps - Behemoth-Class Battlecruiser (V3)
Updated version of the Behemoth-class battlecruiser model for the Moebius Corps faction.
The Moebius Corps engineers upgraded the Behemoth-class battlecruisers using the latest technologies introduced from the Moirai-class battlecruiser and Minotaur-class battlecruiser units. They were outfitted with the new Type V Yamato cannon and torpedo pods, and possesses more armored platings on the sides of the ship, additional laser batteries, and has a second command bridge. They were used during planetary invasions and often accompanied by a fleet of Minotaur-class battlecruisers or Moirai-class battlecruisers during space battles.
Moebius Corps - Vulture (V2)
Updated version of the Moebius Corps Vulture model.
The Moebius Corps uses the vulture hover bikes for scouting unexplored areas in the field and capable of wrecking havoc on resource operations behind enemy lines. They were equipped with grenade launchers against infantry such as marines and can deploy spider mines or cerberus mines for setting up an ambush against unsuspecting enemy troops.
Moebius Corps - Medivac (V2)
Updated version of the Medivac dropship using the Mercenary skin collection version of the Medivac.
The Moebius Corps engineers upgraded the Medivac dropships with more armored platings near the cockpit and on the engines for better protection against enemy gunfire. Most of the Medivacs were outfitted with Advanced Healing AI enabling them to heal two infantry units at the same time and equipped with a Rapid Deployment Tube module for instant deployment of troops in the field.
Moebius Corps - Widow Mine (V2)
Updated version of the Moebius Widow Mine using the Covert Ops Collection of the Widow Mine model.
During the End War, the Moebius Corps rarely used Widow Mines in setting up ambushes against unsuspecting enemies such as a battalion of Dominion marines or a swarm of zerglings. Most of the widow mines possessed more protective plating to better contain accidents and protect against unintended injuries. The design of this type of Widow mine was later used by the Dominion Special Forces and designated it as the Widow Mine Mk. II.
Moebius Corps - Wraith (V2)
Updated version of the Moebius Corps Wraith model.
Despite being an outdated terran starfighter, Wraiths are being continued to be used several terran factions such as Raynor's Raiders, the Terran Dominion, and the Moebius Corps as well as pirate and mercenary organizations throughout the Koprulu Sector. During the End War, the Moebius engineers upgraded the burst lasers of the Wraith enabling them to target air units in close range, and the Gemini missiles to increase its firepower against heavily armored ships such as battlecruisers.
Moebius Corps - Banshee (V3)
Updated version of the Moebius Banshee using the Nova Covert Ops Banshee model
By the time of the End War, the Moebius Corps engineers have upgraded the banshee's twin VTOL turbofans, enabling superior stability and performance when paired with the new vertical stabilizer in the rear of the craft. The design and upgrade was later used by the Dominion engineers to make the covert banshees for the Dominion Special Forces after the End War.
