Wot collection just uploaded a bunch of pictures on facebook of upcomming new premium vehicles, including an american TD at last; the M56 Scorpion. Not much extra info but the fact that it would be a tier 7. What do you think about it?

Buying it regardless of price or performance. I've got 3 US TD crews that'll benefit from a premium.

I'm good with bad tanks. My garage is filled with paper armour. I can tame this beast when it comes out :)

One word: Testserver.

 

Vehicles get frequently changed. Look CDC. In early test versions it was not "only" good, but an insta-buy too. It didnt make it to life server with these stats.

The difference is that CDC didn't even make it to the TESTSERVER with those stats. IT got nerfed during the Supertest phase because anybody could clearly see it was too good. And CDC is still pretty damned good.

 

So I don't think Scorpion will be changed much, if at all. Remember that it's been in testing far longer than CDC ever was.

Didn't feel that mobile to me to be honest. Very small, so should be a great bush camper, but that's a tactic that the last half dozen updates have been designed to eliminate...

really? acceleration seemed great. kept up to about 40-45 easy. only thing i disliked was the constant gun damage and the turnrate of the gun was extremely poor.

Compared to the E25 it's just a piece of sh*t. Gun is okayish, mobility is meh, wouldn't spend any money on it, but at least it's not a "fantasy" tank.

You cant compare it to the E25 though. Only played 3 games in it so far but the gun got destroyed in every game, twice in 2 of those games after I repaired it, this is going to be a problem as nearly every hit damaged the gun.

As far as I can tell it is a decent TD though, great gun that can handle T9 games unlike the pish poor T8 medium they call a premium. so looks like I will be buying it.

I've played it on the test server, and I'm impressed. No armor - no problem. It has no armor due to the history of the M56, it was designed to support Airborne operations, so no armor reduced the weight so it could be air dropped.

What it does have is good speed and traverse, good camo, good gun depression, great gun traverse, and great penetration values.  It will not be an easy TD to play, but if you have good map awareness, the M56 can flex around the battlefield.

On open maps, it will make a great sniper.  On corridor/city maps, it can be played like a medium.

Looks good, if it makes live like that I might have to get one to train my T25/2 crew a bit faster, and maybe prep a new crew if I decide to buy back the Hellcat and try it out, or get ready for the next tank TD in line :)

Not soon, and only as a reward tank or similar.

Apparently, 'marketing has plans for the tank and it's out of the developers hands'.
