The SV-Camel is the first animal Slug in Metal Slug Series.
After the First Modern War, the Regular Army engineers developed new vehicles, so their troops would not need to depend too much on the Metal Slug. The idea of using animals came into their mind, as animals could be more easily hidden in the battlefield.
The camel is fast, but it obviously won't protect the rider. It is only equipped with a 14mm Vulcan and nothing else, but the rider can still throw its own grenades for additional firepower.
In Metal Slug 2/X, the SV-Camel can be brought to the second mission. However, the camel stops on a small body of water to drink, forcing the rider to dismount. However, if one uses a Metal Slug Attack, the camel can kill the Arabian Infantry without damaging the Danger Barrel.
