Manille Consolidated Maritime

Recommended Posts



Manille Consolidated Maritime (MCM), is Iverica's largest manufacturer of civil and military maritime vessels. It is headquartered in Manille, Nou Stille with several main offices and facilities in Porto Altaria, Intreimor, and Porto del Norte.

Founded in 1750 by Francisco Da Costa, MCM began as Da Costa Shipwrights & Supply, rebranding and merging with other shipbuilding and outfitting companies over its long history. In 1930, MCM partnered with the Toledo Group, cementing its position as one of the region's largest and most productive shipbuilding companies.

Apart from assembling and outfitting vessels, MCM also produces specialised equipment for both civil and military use. Its most popular systems include the Naval version of the ANCILE Missile Defence System  (pioneered with the Western Argis Aerospace Defence Command), signals intelligence equipment, Ship-board communications systems, and navigation systems.

República Class

Hybrid Carrier


The República class hybrid carrier is a medium carrier/amphibious assault ship. It combines a significant aircraft complement with the well-dock (hangar for amphibious vehicles) typical of an AAS.

It is primarily a short take off (STOBAR) carrier but carries slots for the instalment of catapults (CATOBAR). The two island superstructures serve as aircraft and landing craft control respectively but are capable of accomplishing both roles individually. The well-dock is a submersible bay located at the stern which is capable of launching a landing task force. If necessary, the vehicle bay can serve as an additional aircraft hangar.

Two features were added as of 2015. The first was a replacement of deck plating around the jet blast deflectors with heat-proof high-tensile ceramic. The second included the addition of a more bulbous bow
