Eaca-B Attack
Flying Tara is an enemy in the Metal Slug series. It is a rebel bomber airplane .


A secondary airplane used by the Rebel's air force, the Flying Tara is mostly a variant of the Eaca-B, with better armament and maneuverability. They only carry a single heavy bomb with them, after throwing it, they fly to the background, and then return with another bomb (Metal Slug 1 only). But in other games, they shoot the same missiles as the Eaca-B.
