Term applied to bipedal tanks, designed primarily to launch ICBMs from any point on Earth, thus rendering the concept of nuclear deterance moot, as well as eliminating the need for expensive silos or nuclear subs.

Metal Gears also serve the role of assault, artillery, anti-vehicle, anti-personell, escort, theatre-missile-defence, as well as numerous other functions with their heavy armaments. The numerous models over the decades have been armed with heavy machine-guns, rockets, hellfire missles, laser systems, rail-guns, hydro-cannons, and various other conventional and unconventional weapons.

In addition to carrying ICBMs, Metal Gears have been known to carry cluster-bombs, cruise missiles, and various other assault payloads in its missile tubes.

The Metal Gear is a fictional weapon-system.
No government has stepped forward for the nuclear attack, and no nation can be accused. NATO suspects that a Metal Gear was involved.

A bipedal tank, capable of launching nuclear missles from anywhere on the face of the planet. Its earliest incarnation was the Shagohod, a tank which, using rocket boosters and about 3 miles of runway, was designed to launch ICBMs. This was destroyed in 1964 during Operation Snake Eater. Metal Gear as we know it today surfaced in 1995 in Outer Heaven, ironically in use by the man who destroyed its earlier model, Big Boss. After being destroyed, another Metal Gear appeared in Zanzibar land. After Solid Snake destroyed it and killed his father, he retired, until 6 years later, the US government decided to build their own model, REX. Liquid Snake and the rest of FOXHOUND took control of the Shadow Moses facility until Solid Snake destroyed it. After that, various models began turning up around the world.
