The Iron Cab is a moving train with legs, which appears in the 1st mission of Metal Slug 6.
It was also introduced in Metal Slug Attack where its official name was revealed.
The Iron Cab, is a vehicle developed by the Rebel Army to send supplies to the soldiers on the front line. After the destruction of the Supply Train (Metal Slug 2 & X), the Rebel Army needed a new form of sending supplies. The result was this very well armed and tall Walking Train.
Being a Modified Walking Train, it is armed with several heavy weapons with Rebels on their back to give supporting fire. Destroying some parts of the train will give you supplies such as food, Ammunition or even POWs. Destroying a particular part could give a Metal Slug. It is very long and may require two players to destroy all of its parts. It is a very fast and welled armored but a Heavy Machine Gun could tear it up easily. Grenade or Cannons can be used against it for increased firepower. On two of the crates it has a large cannon shooting bombs. Destroying all of the parts in succession will drop lots of coins.
- Even if the front is destroyed, the train continues to move. Presumably the remainder continues on auto-pilot.
- Before the official name was revealed, it was usually called the 'Walking Locomotive'. SNK's developers still refer to it as such within Metal Slug Attack's data files.
- The Iron Cab in Metal Slug Attack also fires a powerful laser beam, using Tetsuyuki's cannon sprite.
- In Metal Slug Attack, only the end portion of the Iron Cab is used.
