The Army Jeep (official name unknown) is a minor enemy from the exclusive extra stage added to the PC Engine port of Strider, Oil Fields.


The Army Jeep is a combat vehicle used by the Kazakh Federation's desert military. The jeep is equipped with a mounted gun, and is driven by two Desert Soldiers, the second of which handles the weapon. It only appears in the camp section of the oil fields right before the boss, Sovkhoz Я.

When approached, the jeep drives towards Hiryu while shooting a barrage of bullets straight at him. Direct contact with the jeep will not harm Hiryu, and he can even walk past it without issue, forcing the jeep to steer around and continue the assault. Since it can only damage Hiryu through its bullet spray, it can be easily destroyed.
