Big Shiee is a large amphibious tank, designed for traveling on water and land, using it's tracks to travel like a conventional tank. It is armed with several 75mm APDS cannons, as well as a large main cannon which is hidden on the front. It effectively serves as a land battleship.
All the side-cannons of the tank will be fire 75mm APDS cannon constantly at the player, so you must keep moving all the time while shooting them. Once at least five and sometimes four cannons are taken down, the boss will show its main cannon, a short-barreled huge-caliber weapon which fires a large heavy shell. This cannon is also used on the second boss in MS4 (Toschka Dalanue). If you avoid the the shell and are above it when it explodes, you will be flung into the air which is a perfect opportunity to damage the large cannon with the one on the Metal Slug.

- It was based off from land battleships from the Gundam franchise. There is also more than a passing resemblance to the "Space Battleship Yamato" and the IJN Yamato.
- Strangely, if the boss used the main cannon before the small cannons were destroyed, sometimes the cannons explode by themselves
- Some fans think that the large cannon on the Big Shiee resembles the main gun on the Metal Slug. This is true, and this is confusing as it can mislead people into thinking the Rebel Army had some sort of idea of using the gun on the Slug. combine this with the fact that the Belt system on the Girida-O Tank is nearly identical to that of the SV-001, and it is probable that the Rebels had already started utilizing the technology that the Slugs had. But, the Girida-O came before the Slug, so it is unknown. Also, the main gun's shells on the Slug and the Shiee look exactly alike as well.
