The Metal Gear TX-55 was the first proper Metal Gear; a form of bipedal tank capable of launching nuclear warheads.  It was constructed by Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar under orders from his captor, Big Boss, who also held Madnar's daughter Ellen hostage to ensure cooperation.
After Solid Snake rescues Dr. Madnar and his daughter, he learns that the TX-55 isn't yet complete and that its feet are its critical weakness.  Snake is able to use explosives to put the Metal Gear out of commission before it can become a threat.
In Metal Gear 2:  Solid Snake, the Metal Gear D that appears in the game is designed as an improved TX-55.
