The Crab-Tank is an enemy in the Metal Slug series.
The Crab-Tank attacks by firing blue energy bolts from the cannons on the top of its head. It can also open the top of its head and shoot a bubble which bounces around and separates into three smaller bubbles, allowing it to cover a large area in front of it.
Its first appearance is in mission 3 after the character obtains the Zantetsu Sword and goes down the two boxes containing a Drop Shot and Iron Lizard. It will also appear various times in the final mission.
