Is there a way to try out a non-tech-tree tank without buying it?

Hi, title says it all. I want to try out the skorpion g, some says it is very inaccurate and has a very poor cammo and can get spotted fairly quickly, some says It's an absolute destroyer! Youtube videos doesn't help at all lol. In test server you can only try tanks that are in tech-tree. Also I could try with somoenes else account, but I don't want to ruin their stat's and you know, noone will trust a random person lol. So what are the ways I could try it? Have a nice day commanders :B.

like I said the test-server only gives tech-tree tanks to buy like Lowe, m4a1 rev, sta-2 and etc. no skorpion g.

Short answer, no.

 

Slightly longer answer, nooooooo.

 

It's been an issue for longer than I've been playing. The best you can do is check all the youtube vids you can find, hope a streamer plays it while you're watching (some play tanks on request but it's usually in return for a subscription or donation) and download a selection of ace tanker and MoE replays and hope that you can see what the player is doing and why.

 

I got a Skorpion G from the Christmas boxes and I've found it to be extremely accurate if you allow the aim to settle, it's quite quick to settle in fairness but if you don't, the chances of skying a shot are much higher. It's also got pretty poor camo values that mean you'll be firing from long range nearly all the time and playing shoot-n-scoot. I've been playing it with my camo-trained Jagdpanther crew and you have to move after nearly every shot because you will be spotted when that gun goes off. At least the turret helps with positioning it ready to run.

 

In short, it's a good credit grinder because big damage = big credits but it's a poor crew trainer partly because of the seating (commander doubles as the loader and the fourth crewman is a radio operator) and partly because your crew will really need some camo skill to get the most from it.
