Combat Cabb Headquarters is a location featured in the pen and paper RPG Cyberpunk 2020.

Overview[]

Combat Cabb specializes in ground vehicle transport, with cabs armored like tanks and armed like AV-9s. Their mottoes, "We get you there, dead or alive", and "Leave the Combat to us," typlify the attitude of its freebooting drivers. Now world famous, thanks to DMS's long running comedy-drama, the Combat Cabb company began as a four hack operation in early 2011. Its colorful staff of cyberwar vets, recovered cyberpsychosis cases and expatriate Corporates, led by retired solo and mercenary Harrick McGivenay, soon became a popular local legend. In 2013, author G. Stafford drafted a slightly fictionalized account of CC's adventures during the Mob Wars and the Metal Wars after; the book was later produced as a movie by director Francesco Cippolina, then taken to video in 2017 by Diverse Media Systems. For the last three years, hundreds of millions have been glued each Thursday night to their vid-screens, faithfully following the adventures of Harrick (portrayed by screen hunk Patrick Lewis-Lyndell), his partner/lover Emmanualle Moore (toughest cabbie in the City), and the rest of Combat Cabb's lovable cast, making the series one of the highest-rated vid-shows in history.

True to its rough-and-ready background, the Combat Cabb offices are situated in two heavily-armored, almost bunker like buildings. The northernmost building contains the main garage and dispatch offices. The second building contains a well-guarded munitions bunker, repair facilities, and six "special-cabs" (read: heavily armed fan panzers purchased at government auction after the Central American Conflicts). These are used for only the most extreme fares, or to bail out "Com-Cabbies" trapped in the lower reaches of the Zone. Four small buildings grouped around a central courtyard serve as housing, lunchroom, break area and rec-area for CC's rather extended family.

Security Level: 2[1]

Combat Cabb Headquarters is situated in Night City's Lake Park sector of downtown.
