The Slug Mobile is a car slug used in the last misson of Metal Slug 5.
Firstly introduced as civillian vehicle, it was sucessfully sold for its compactness. The vehicle was used as road barrier by the rebel army in the city as its population are plentifull. It will not took a long time before the regular army took notice and quickly revamp the model into their own purpose. Beloved for its compactness, this car is speedy and has the ability to jump. While it's not very capable of off-road handling, it performs well on roads. Its 14mm Vulcan provides excellent defense against aircrafts, while the guided RPG under the front hood provides some anti-armor defense. Upgrades by the regular army (notably the setup of vulcan's ammo and boosting ability) may have make the vehicle more prone to catch fire. Attention must be given to maximize its effectiveness.
