Military Train is a stage in Contra: Hard Corps.


To access this stage, the following decisions must be made:

  1. "Rescue the Research Center"
  2. "Surrender and fight later"

In a surprising turn of events, Deadeye Joe comes to bust our hero(es) out of their incarceration. Now fully armed, our hero(es) blast through the waves of soldiers to escape into the outside! But there are more dangers outside as well! While climbing through the outside of the train, beware the bikers on the streets, train pursuit! After dealing with a trick cannon, one more robot appears to make sure that train is stopped... with you in it!

Version differences[]

Regional differences[]

  • In Probotector (MD), Deadeye Joe doesn't bust the heroes out of incarceration. Instead, a random Air Police unit with a unique sprite rescues them.
  • All Zako units were changed into a robotic appearance (although the Bike Soldier remained unaltered for some reason).

Contra Advance: The Alien Wars EX[]

In the Game Boy Advance port, the level begins with the player fully armed on the train and blasting their way through the car from a door-less room through a hall full of enemies. Also, this conversion of the stage instead of playing "Something Wonderful" as its background theme and "GTR Attack!" as its boss theme, it retains the original music tracks from the Destroyed Highway top-view stage from Contra III and plays "Megalopolis" as the background theme and "Bloody Storm" as the boss theme.
