From the way each tank handles, to the attention to detail in the models, World of Tanks is glorious in its depiction of real-world tanks. But sometimes all you want is a bit of a silly tank to jump into, cruise around in, and generally just blow s*** up. One of the best genres for tanks is sci-fi games, so we've created a list of the five best tanks from sci-fi games!
Metal Slug - SV-001
Anyone who’s ever been to an arcade will be intimately familiar with the Metal Slug series. There was nothing like sliding a few coins into the machine and playing the sidescroller with a buddy. While the action was fast-paced and full of blood and guts, the real power came in the form of the Slug vehicles you could find hidden as secrets in a level.
Arguably the most iconic vehicle, and the game’s namesake, is the Metal Slug. The SV-001 Metal Slug utilizes a main cannon that uses armor-piercing rounds as well as a smaller, side-mounted machine gun that could be fired extremely quickly. It would chew through a bosses health far quicker than other means. And I mean, it just looks cute.
In terms of gameplay, there was nothing more exciting than stumbling across a secret area that rewarded you with a Metal Slug.
