Hello fellow tankers,

I now have a little more than 700 battles with my own Skorpion G and i'm bothered with something. This tank is basically a big cardboard box powered by 650 horsepower, but it feels heavy and slow and the acceleration is not that good if you look closely at it.

So i've done a bit of calculation and here's the result :

The weight of the skorpion is **38,23 tons** and the tank is based on a panther chassis. The full panther is **45,25 tons.**

Let's strip those two of, shall we ?

The motor of the skorpion weights 850 Kg and the motor of the panther 1200 Kg

The canon of the skorpion Weights 3000 Kg, the canon of the panther 2100 Kg

The skorpion as basically no turret, but lets say it weights 2000 Kg, the turret of the Panther weights 7745 Kg

Let's say the tracks are counted as the chassis Weight as well as the radio and make some calculation ! (shall we ?)

the remaining weight of the skorpion is **38 230 Kg - 850 - 3000 - 2000 = 32 380 Kg**

the remaining weight of the panther is **45 250 - 1200 - 2100 - 7745 = 34205 Kg**

the armor of the skorpion 30 mm on the front, 16mm on the side and 20mm on the rear, the armor of the panther is 85 mm on the front, 50 on the sides and 40 on the rear, **How the f*ck do you explain that there is only a 2 tons difference between those two chassis ? **
