The Flying Battery Zone is the second zone in Sonic & Knuckles and the eighth zone Sonic 3 & Knuckles and is giant flying fortress which appears over the Mushroom Hill Zone. At the end of the previous zone, Sonic or Knuckles latch onto the outside of the ship as it passes, whilst Tails flies on-board. The level was originally planned to have appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, taking place between the Carnival Night Zone and Ice Cap Zone. Sonic and Tails would have used the cannon to fire themselves into the craft, whereas Knuckles would have bypassed it entirely, instead teleporting straight to the Ice Cap Zone.
This zone contains three bosses; two sub-bosses and the main boss.
