In-Game Description
"Improved version of Morden Army's "Iron Nokana". By the way, the General Morden in this tank is a fake."
Iron

The Iron is a Super Rare fighting armoured unit of the Independent faction in Metal Slug Attack, originally appearing on the VIP Crank as a part of the Extra Ops titled "Alien vs. Morden".

As its name suggests, it is a customized version of the Iron Nokana by the Amadeus Syndicate. Until MSA Skill small + 2 is unlocked, the Iron must stay still in order to attack enemy units. When it is unlocked, the Iron gets the ability to perform its long range attack while moving at the same time. As it's special, it fires multiple homing missiles at the enemy that have just slightly longer range than it's normal in addition with MSA Skill small + 4 it will start both its long range normal attack and close range attack whilst staying still.

It is notable that all the Iron's attacks are piercing capable (the missiles to a small degree).

Attacks

Short Range

Attribute grenade Rotor Blade (non-labelled) - It will use its own rotor blade to Attack nearby enemy units for a short range attack. Extends farther than most close ranged attack and pierces through units.

Long Range

Attribute grenade Cannon - Fires a cannon from an arc, dealing moderate damage. Hits harder than similar attacks and pierces as well.

Special Attack

Attribute grenade Missile - Fires a salvo of homing missiles that deals massive damage while also doing it's normal long range and close range attacks without moving.
