Stage: Fortress of the Soviet Union
The Novgorod is the first boss encountered in the Soviet Union stage. It appears in water, looking much like a UFO from above, and shoots fireballs at the player from its turrets.
Despite its odd, round appearance, the Novgorod is a real-world craft. However, unlike other vehicles taken from real life in Sonic Wings 3, it far predates World War II: it was created in the 1870s and scrapped just before World War I .
Stage: Aegean Sea
Novgorod reappears in Sonic Wings Limited, this time floating in the Aegean Sea. It attacks by shooting artillery from its turrets and by launching drones.
