The Machine Shop is a Terran add-on for the Factory. It allows the production of Siege Tanks from the Factory and Tier Two Tech upgrades.

Only Factories that have an attached Machine Shop can build Tanks, but those without the Machine Shop are still able to produce Vultures and Goliaths. As such, in many Terran strategies involving mechanical unit armies, multiple Factories may be built, but the Terran player will only opt for the Machine Shop on a subset of them. This decision of whether a Factory will include this add-on is frequently made in the early game as the Terran constructs its Sim-City and to fit the maximum number of Factories in its main base.
