The Mobile Control Centre is a portable on-site command center module used during rescue missions. It is carried aboard Thunderbird 1.
Among its features are various audio/video communication systems to communicate with the other rescue vehicles. Included is a photo detector, which sounds an alarm if someone is photographing the Thunderbirds craft. Originally requiring two people to unload, an anti-gravity unit was developed to simplify loading and unloading.

Trapped in the SkyEdit
City of FireEdit
Operation Crash DiveEdit
The Mighty AtomEdit
Scott used the mobile control when he arrived at the Saharan Atomic Station.
Vault of DeathEdit
Scott flies off to the Nevada desert, after International Rescue gets a call for help. Two actors are trapped in a cave that is quickly filling with water. The Hood had fixed the charges, which caused a giant explosion, so that he can film the Thunderbirds craft when they arrive.
When Scott arrives at the danger zone he quickly gets his Mobile Control set up and updates Virgil on the rescue. Unbeknown by Scott, the Hood is filming the whole event.
Terror in New York CityEdit
Oil Field FireEdit
Scott uses the Mobile Control when he directs operations from an oil well gantry, while Virgil tackles the raging fire in the Firefly.
Operation To Save Ned CookEdit
With Thunderbird 2 out of action, there is no way to get Thunderbird 4 to New York in time to save Ned Cook and Joe, who will be under water within twenty-two hours. Jeff Tracy makes a priority call to Washington and arranges for Thunderbird 4 to be transported to New York by the U.S.N. Sentinel, but the journey will still take twenty-four hours. Scott races ahead in Thunderbird 1 and establishes radio contact with Ned and Joe.
When Scott was summoned to assist Gordon with the rescue of Brains, Virgil took over at Mobile Control.
