Inside the Federal Military Base (連邦軍基地内 Renpō-gun Kichi-nai?)[2] is the second stage of Super Contra. It is a continuation of the first stage, where the heroes continue their raid inside the overrun military base.

Overview[]

A level played from a top-view perspective inside an overrun military base now occupied by Red Falcon's brainwashed human troops, as well as military machines that have fallen in the enemy's hands. The player must break through the opposing enemy lines, cross a bridge near the end and destroy the main stronghold's gates to reach the stage's boss. As expected from one of such places, large troops of enemies will appear from every possible direction and diverse types of artillery vehicles and turrets will be encountered along the way. In this stage, all enemy soldiers are armed and are capable of shooting down the player.

A special weapon called the Hyper Shell can be found in this stage which is capable of annihilating all onscreen enemies on a single launching. Due to its power, it is recommended to be saved to destroy Magnus, the boss of this stage. However, if the player loses a life, the Hyper Shell will be lost, so if left with no other option, it might as well be used to escape from tight situations.

Right before reaching Magnus, there is a gate with three sentry soldiers who remain stationary. The player must be careful as they will shoot at them and their shots are obscured by the roof of the gate, which is presented as a foreground, luring unsuspecting players to walk straight into enemy bullets.
