The Nop-03 Sarubia is the main support vehicle of the Rebel Army.


Mainly designed for support fire, the Sarubia attacks by deploying rolling mines. Its height also means that friendly troops are able to climb it to reach places they can't normally go to. It is fairly armored, but it has no protection from aerial strikes.

Its main attack's sole purpose is to keep the player busy from avoiding the rolling mines, so that its allies can easily kill the player.

Upgrades & Variants

Nop-03 Sarubia Ver. P.M: It is half the size and weight of the original Sarubia, which means it has more speed. Its armor is weaker than the Rebel variant, vulnerable to a direct hit cannon attack from the SV-001.
Space Tank: An upgraded version for Morden's use. It is designed with the help from the Martians. Despite not seemingly possessing any flying capabilities, it is capable of flying around. The Spank Tank lacks any attacking abilities in most games; Metal Slug Infinity has it firing missiles at its back and a TM-1S by opening the "X" hatch on the front.
Nop-03 Sarubia Ver. P.M II: A purple version of the original Ptolemaic Sarubia manned by a captain guerrilla armed with a bazooka. It is meant for underground excursions and has increased armor plating over the original.
Nop-03 Sarubia MK II: A purple version of the original Rebel Sarubia whose cannon shots are capable of blocking projectiles.
Amadeus Sarubia: A gray-white version of the original Rebel Sarubia in use by the Amadeus Syndicate. It has unusually high durability.
Frozen Sarubia MK I: A freezing version of the original Rebel Sarubia which uses ice-based attacks. It is piloted by Vicky.

Golden Nop-03 Sarubia: The original Rebel Sarubia now painted gold. The cannon shots are capable of blocking projectiles and have been improved to not explode on contact. It was also given customized cannon shells which grow in size, which are lifted into its cannon by macho men inside the Sarubia.
Nop-03 Sarubia Ver. P.M III: A pink version of the original Ptolemaic Sarubia manned by a Captain Guerrilla armed with a bazooka.
