SVF-07V , a.k.a. Slug Flyer is a vehicle in the Metal Slug series.
The Slug Flyer can hover on the ground just like the real-world counterpart, the Harrier family of jets. Its main advantage is that it has superior manueverability over any other Super Vehicles, but the fact that its Vulcan has limited firing arc makes it vulnerable to enemies approaching from the rear. The Sidewinder missile, while powerful, is used with limited success due to the amount of time to accelerate once detached from the wing pylons. Nevertheless, the Slug Flyer can prove its mettle with the right pilot.
