The Shagohod is an enhanced tank that makes it first appearance is Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. It was created by Sokolov with the help of Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin, GRU, and the members of the Cobra Unit.
Devoloped by Dr. Nikolai Stepanovich Sokolov, The Shagohod was a large, enhanced tank that was completed and stolen Colonel Volgin for his own purposes, using the Philosopher's Legacy to assist him. This was because, at the time, he thought Aleksandr Leonovitch Granin's Metal Gear idea was impractical.
After the super battle tank survived a C3 explosion caused by Naked Snake, who was sent to destroy it, Volgin himself piloted it and hunted the pair of Snake and EVA down. After the chase, however, the tank recieved a great amount of damage via Snake's RPG-7 and was eventually destroyed, along with Volgin, after a stray lightining bolt knived down into it.
