Should Scorpion keep the current armor model?

  1. Sure, it's a balancing factor, 10-15 mm plates would make it OP (11 votes [45.83%])

    Percentage of vote: 45.83%

  2. Nope, if it had 1 MM of armor its gun would fly off after firing (4 votes [16.67%])

The tank hull of the M56 was made by General Motors in their Cadillac factory. The hull is described as "unarmoured". So although it is made of metal sheet, the grade of metal would have been the same as used to build Cadillac motor cars. That means the sheets would have had enough tensile strength for a person to stand on them, but insufficient to even stop a bullet from a pistol (in either the car or an M56).


The only "armoured" part of the M56 is the gun shield.


So the physics is about right ingame for the M56, because if you drove your Cadillac into a rock, it would dent the Cadillac, and the rock would not move.
