The Emain Macha is the second boss in Metal Slug Advance.
They are also called The Twins. One is green-coloured while the second, red-coloured, is faster.
These bosses move from one side to the other while shooting from their turrets, which is also their only weak spot. The cannons fires explosives into the sky, which fall down to the floor where the player is making a line of fire (it disappears after a while) that damage the characters if they touch it. Luckily, the rate of fire of the turret is pretty slow, allowing the player to attack the cannon for quite a while before evading the explosives or the Rebel soldier shoot them with their bazooka.
When the first tank is destroyed, the second tank takes its place. This red elite tank is a lot quicker and its firing rate is faster than that of the first tank. Its more advanced cannon shoots the explosives in a neat line, causing a long line of fire that is recommended to stay away from getting damage.
Both tanks have the aid of rebels with a bazooka that respawn until the tank is blown up. A yellow rebel sometimes appears when the players killed him and received a Laser gun. Any of the Slug tanks (Except Slug Gunner) will help destroy these two quicker, receiving them a card of Emain Macha.
