After a long time, the name for the new Metal Gear unit in Metal Gear Solid 3 : Snake Eater is confirmed. Shagohod is its name, once and for all.

Shagohod is a massive, somewhat-bipedal tank, capable of operating on any land on the planet. The crown jewel of the Shagohod, however, is its nuclear capabilities; it is equipped with a massive turret designed to launch an SS-20 Saber-Class nuclear missile. Other than its nuclear capability, the Shagohod is the missing link between infantry and artillery, and given MGS3's setting, the Shagohod's deployment ultimately means the end of the Cold War, the end of nuclear deterrence, and thus, World War III.

"The Treading Behemoth" in Russian. The name of a dangerous (and fictional) weapon in the game Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. This machine is equipped with a giant turret for the launch of an SS-20 nuclear missile. Normally, iy would not be able to launch the missile more than two or three thousand miles, but with a special Sokolov-designed rocket propulsion system, when it reaches full speed and launches the warhead, the range easily becomes over six thousand miles, allowing it to strike ANYWHERE in the US from ANYWHERE in Russia. The Shagohod is also equipped with a small but powerful laser, a rocket launcher and two heavy machine guns. Destroyed in 1964 by the world's BADDEST soldier, Naked Snake/Big Boss/John Doe.
The Shagohod will mean the end of the Cold War... and then the age of terror will truly begin...
