Staubteufel, a super-tank, is the miniboss in stage 3-A (1995 Chechnya) and in the stage 5-A (2003 Afghanistan)

During Stage 5-A, the player is tasked to destroy the three Staubteufel vehicles in the mission - One in the center of the map near the middle of the stage, and two more side-by-side at the end of the stage. The large section in the middle of the vehicle must be destroyed on all three to succeed.

As of v0.10, completing this objective does not affect which stage is played next - players will always advance to Stage 6-B.

Staubteufel's name is taken from the German for "dust devil".
