The Ptolemaic Slug is the Ptolemaic Army's own version of the SV-001, featured in Metal Slug 5.


Using the data disc stolen from the Regular Army, the Ptolemaic Army designed their own variations of the original Metal Slug tank. One which was solely armed with the 127mm cannon, whilst the other is armed with the 12.6mm Vulcans. They also created the heavily-armed Black Hound, along with the massive Metal Rear using the stolen data.

Seen in Metal Slug Attack, this variant is a bit more durable than the regular cannon model.


  • Both variants are also included in Metal Slug Defense and Metal Slug Attack; the Cannon Variant as a purchasable unit, the Vulcan Variant as an unreachable enemy unit in an area of another world.
  • No persons could be seen exiting these Slugs when they are defeated, meaning that they could possibly be unmanned vehicles.
