The Hover Vehicle is a Ptolemaic aerial attack vehicle.
It is mainly seen destroying wooden bridges in mission 2 of Metal Slug 5. When you shoot at it, your shots go past it, making it invincible from your shots for some unknown reason.
- In beta stages of Metal Slug 5 it can hurt you, and can be destroyed.
- Oddly, its shots cannot harm the player in anyway and can only indirectly kill the player by making them fall to their deaths when the bridge is destroyed
- In Metal Slug Defense and Metal Slug Attack the hover vehicle can attack at any unit unlike its arcade counterparts which can only destroy bridges.
