Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons

The Spectrum Maximum Security Vehicle

The Spectrum Maximum Security Vehicle, or MSV, is a motorised Spectrum vehicle, used mainly for the protection of important personnel whom the Spectrum Organisation has been assigned to guard. It is seen mainly in Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.


The Spectrum Maximum Security Vehicle has been used extensively (presumably before the events of the first instalment took place) to protect dignitaries from assassination attempts.

It was used in "Winged Assassin" when the Director-General of the United Asian Republic was a Mysteron target. The Mysterons, however, achieved their goal of his assassination, but by a different method.
