Reading the restrictions for an MS, am I understanding it correctly that it can do any task that isn't named a build task? So install, repair, etc, are all good, but not build units or anything like that?

It cannot do any "build" or "refit" tasks (M2.01.1.3.2) But other than that, yes.

Wait. If it cannot "build" or "refit", but can do everything else...

It can UNCRATE a unit (assemble it from parts)?

That seems... within letter, but against spirit?

Building from what is basically a flatpack isn't really the same as a true build project, allowing this to fall within the letter and the spirit. It is how I use (MS) in my games.

Some players think of crated units as being modularized...
