I don't understand why they refuse to add M56 to the techtree, like they did with tanks like VK 45.03 and Krupp Steyr, it's not OP and America could use a premium TD crew trainer that is available to all.

Yeah, that seems like such a basic thing to get right...

Yeah, but no one at WGEU cares enough to do basic proofreading/factchecking and whoever does the news posts never plays the game...

DO NOT BUY. I bought it but only because at the time i didnt have a td premium and thought why not it was only less than 20 quid... but its one of my least played premiums because it sucks monkeyballs. It has nothing going for it and the good pene of the good is not even worth it ... You get :

Rubbish mobility, Nonexistent armour and EVEN so bad armour even your own team will damage you just nudging you.. 
 

THE ENEMY will not ever have to shoot to kill you. THey just ram you a few meters and bang you dead :D .. I know it happened to me in it. Its pointless to shoot these tds.

T-34 = Tier VIII of the week.  Scorpion = Collector's Gem of the week (not tier VIII).  Nothing to fix.

I got it as a crew trainer when the US TDs were TOTT, only played 26 games in it and gave up, it's pants. I'm waiting for another trade in event when the wind happens to be blowing in the right direction so there's actually something worth buying in the shop at the same time.

 

It sits in the garage next to the Matila IV to remind me how stupid I can be to buy such things, although the Matila IV can't pen anything at distance since the ammo changes, it's still actually better, that's how bad the Scorpion is.

Before the 'physics update patch' couple years ago this was a 'ok' TD it was kind fun to play

now with the LT physics this tiny TD plays like a LT in its hyper-active to drive playstyle - you wont like it

 

it gets to 45kph fast, thats nice / except when you come to stop its like a go-cart it swings left or right sharply with the Gun swinging like a windmill

not here you wanted the Gun at all!

then of course you now have to aim again all over again, gee thats fun so its twice as long to aim?


 

its DPM is garbage compared to regulat Tech tree TDs (Jagpanther or even the T6 Nashorn TD

on the plus side its Camo rating is really good similar to the E25 Premium


 

Arty or ANY HE shell destroys it in 1 shot even splash damage lol yes it kills it instantly, as does any tank of any tier ramming it

collectors Tank at best

much like all the older Premiums kinda outdated badly
