Metal Slug Wiki

The Di-Cokka is an enemy vehicle in the Metal Slug series. It is one of the Rebel Army's main tanks, being used in tough fights.


The Di-Cokka's main weapon is a short-barreled 155mm cannon (called H-Cannon in Metal Slug Attack) capable of rapid fire, but the turret is not usually seen rotating. This tank was mass-produced by the Rebel Army due to its low production cost, thus is seen the most in the battlefield.

A characteristic of the Di-Cokka is the presence of a driver. When destroyed, a Rebel soldier comes out of a hatch with a rocket launcher, takes a single shot, and then flees. A player can shoot the Rebel before they can do anything. Once the Rebel is gone, the Di-Cokka fully destructs.

In Metal Slug: Super Vehicle-001, using a grenade as the finishing shot instantly dismantles the Di-Cokka, killing the driver inside.

Upgrades & Variants

Rebel Army

Di-Cokka: The original model with all-around stats, and the most commonly found variant. In Metal Slug Defense and Metal Slug Attack, its color is the same as Morden's Di-Cokka.
Di-Cokka MKII (Amadeus).gif
Di-Cokka MK II / Di-Cokka (Amadeus): A variant of Di-Cokka with higher rate of fire, first appearing in the fourth mission of the original game. Just like the standard model in movement speed, except it fires quicker and has upgraded armor. In Metal Slug Attack, this variant of the Di-Cokka is operated by the Amadeus Syndicate.
Di-Cokka Ver. F: A variant of Di-Cokka used by the Future Rebels painted in cyan. It has double the resistance of the original model, and fires plasma blasts from its 155mm cannon instead of shells.
Morden's Di-Cokka: This variant, ridden by Morden, does not really attack and is always invincible when seen attacking (or being attacked by) Invaders. It also appears in Metal Slug 7/XX when the players are destroying the Big Gate. This version of the Di-Cokka also appears in several mobile games. In Metal Slug Defense, this unit was a gift for the 23 million download event and is the toughest version.

Di-Cokka (Zombie Army): This version of the Di-Cokka fires flashing rockets.
Di-Cokka (Flamethrower): A variant of the Di-Cokka that replaces its hull with a big flamethrower mounted on a turret. The turret has no visible hatch. Appears in Metal Slug 3D
Di-Cokka MK II: An upgraded version of the Di-Cokka. It fires more shells than the original, is faster and has more armor. Appears in Metal Slug Attack.
MSA Golden Di-Cokka.gif
Golden Di-Cokka: Another upgraded version of the Di-Cokka, now painted gold. It fires even more shots than the previous versions, and also rams itself into the nearest target upon being critically damaged. Appears in Metal Slug Attack.
MSA Robo Di-Cokka.gif
Robotic Di-Cokka: A variant of the Rebel Army Di-Cokka summoned by Morden. The tank is fully automated, with a Morden Robot placed on top of the tank where the hatch would be. Its arms are replaced with cannons that fire shots at the enemy. When the tank is critically damaged, it rams itself onto enemy units and explodes.
MSA Eight Eight Win.gif
Eight Eight: A Rebel Army Di-Cokka that gained sentience upon fusing with Martian bacterium while transporting it. It is stronger than the typical Di-Cokka and primarily attacks by ramming enemies with sheer mass. It is maintained by an unnamed mechanic who is inside the tank.

Ptolemaic Army

Di-Cokka Ver. P.M: A variant of the Di-Cokka built by the Ptolemaic Army, it is faster and has an upgraded rate of fire, firing without needing to charge like the original model does. Unlike the other variants, its driver does not climb out of the vehicle when it is destroyed, which indicates that it is either unmanned or the driver is killed inside.
MSA Space Di-Cokka PM.gif
Space Di-Cokka: A enhanced Ptolemaic version of the Ptolemaic Di-Cokka, this Di-Cokka has Invader-like attributes. Attacks inflicted on this Di-Cokka are weakened. A mechanic is also part of the crew to repair the tank back into working action if critically damaged.

Regular Army

Nikita's Di-Cokka: A Metal Slug Attack-exclusive upgraded version of the Di-Cokka, which serves as Nikita's personal vehicle. Apart from a double cannon, it is also equipped with a Solanoid Cannon, which is a miniaturized version of the Tani Oh's Andro Cannon. Unlike the Rebel variants which collapse, this Di-Cokka is rigged to explode when critically damaged.
Nikita's Di-Cokka (Halloween): A Halloween-themed variant of the Regular Army Di-Cokka that fires from a pumpkin-themed cannon. It is far more durable than the original P.F Di-Cokka but in exchange of less firepower. Once again, it is ridden by Nikita, except she sports a zombie costume.
MSA Special Nikita.gif
Nikita's Di-Cokka (Special): A special version of the Regular Army Di-Cokka, which is equipped with engines that cause it to accelerate towards the nearest enemy unit before a massive blast from its Solanoid Cannon sends it careening back. Once again, it is ridden by Nikita.
Regular Army Di-Cokka: A mass-produced version of Nikita's Di-Cokka, except it fires single shots that cover much more range than any of its previous variants. Like Nikita's Di-Cokka, it is also rigged to explode into enemy positions when critically damaged.
MSA Golden Regular Di-Cokka.gif
Golden Regular Di-Cokka: Regular Army Di-Cokkas painted gold. Their attacks can weaken the enemy.



  • The Di-Cokka's design is based on the American M4A1 Sherman, produced during World War II. It also bears some resemblance to the Howitzer Motor Carriage M8. Its armament is reminiscent of fast-loading, short barrel 75 mm guns, either the German 7.5 cm KwK 37 mounted on early Panzer IV models or the American 75 mm M2/M3 Howitzer mounted on the M8 models.
  • The first early concept of the Di-Cokka has a resemblance to the M3 Lee used in WWII [1]. The second early concept had an unusual, futuristic design with two sets of treads (two small ones at the front, and two larger ones at the rear), along with a second lower cannon. These would indicate that the Di-Cokka was originally to be armed with two cannons, much like the KT-21 (an even earlier model).
  • The Ptolemaic version of the Di-Cokka somewhat resembles the M4A3E8 "Easy Eight".
  • The number 88, on the side of the tank possibly refers to skinhead language, where 88 means 'Heil Hitler' (H being the 8th letter in the alphabet). This could be a reference to the resemblance between General Morden's army and the Nazi Germany during the WW2.
  • While the Di-Cokka's turret is not seen rotating on its own, one of the cutscenes for Metal Slug 3D, where Allen O'Neil commands a massive legion of Di-Cokkas against a Regular Army base in a desert, some of the tanks are seen with their turrets rotating.
