The Slug Copter is an attack helicopter Super Vehicle from Metal Slug 3.


Another aircraft Slug created by the Regular Army, the SVH-03 Slug Copter comes equipped with 14mm caliber Vulcan cannons, capable of rotating 360°, unlike with the Slug Flyer. It also comes equipped with heavy 500lb air-to-ground bombs that cause massive damage, but are useless against aerial targets.


  • It bears a strong resemblance to the real-life Bell 47 helicopter.
  • Alongside the Slug Mariner, several working Slug Copters can be found in some unused stages of Metal Slug X.
  • The Slug Copter in the beta version has 12.6mm Vulcans and drops the same type of bombs as the R-Shobu. These weapons are most likely to be placeholders for the final 14mm Vulcans and air-to-ground bombs.
  • In the Final Mission of Metal Slug 3, it is possible to get three Slug Copters at the same time, though this may take some time to do.
  • In Metal Slug Defense, the Slug Copter is an unlockable unit after clearing Another World 1 if all POW's are released on a Friday. However, in Metal Slug Attack, the Slug Copter is a pre-requisite unlockable unit in the Short Ranking Battle event, which required the player to rank high in Battle Mode. 30 Slug Copter parts are required to unlock the unit.
