Seems I restarted playing not longer after the event at which this was released :(

Does anyone have an idea when this will likely be sold in the premium shop based (assuming these event tanks are periodically sold)?

It doesn't suck Doc, it's just the skorpion is better! :)

I've no basis of comparison but I did have the Skorpion for a weeks rental and whilst it was OK,  it wasn't as good as I expected it to be. I was under the impression most (from recent comments in other threads) that the Skorp has gone out of favour and that the SU is the better premium TD.

Your  impression is wrong... on paper the SU might look better but it isnt.

Nope: https://tanks.gg/com...on-g?t=su-130pm

 

Worse DPM, worse aim, slightly worse acceleration in favor of better top speed... Looks worse across the board, except it looks cooler, probably has better turret rotation and camo values, but what's the point, as unarmored TD you'll want to land your shots with as much DPM as possible.

Both got potential to do a lot of damage and make an impact even in tier 10 battles. It's when you need to move around, probably mid to end game, that skorpion advantage in mobility starts to have an effect. On the other hand the SU gun while having a slightly lower pen, it got better shell velocity which makes it easier to lead targets at longer ranges and it's a russian gun so aiming is not that important!

 

Camo on the SU is also much better than the skorpion so you don't get instantly spotted.

Tbh I'm not sure I do, it might be a total disappointment and afaik there has not been any rental codes to test it out so its more curiosity just now.

It is a good and hard hitting TD with a bit different playstyle than the Skorp G.

 

Almost as something in between a Rhm B and the Skorp. 

 

Although i would rate the Skorpion to be the better tank, i still like the Su-130pm and think it can have a good impact on the battlefield 

 

+Good camo (Skorp has very bad camo)

+  -7 degrees of gun depression over the whole front (Skorp has - 7 only over the sides)

+ Lower profile, easier to hide.

 

-Much slower than the Skorp, despite showing almost the same p/w ratio and ground resistances.

-Limited gun traverse.

Skorp G is much better, unless you are specifically after it as a crew trainer or for a collection, get a Skorp G IMO.

Or hope that WG will see that for sales they'll need to include tanks in-game next x-mas event like this (last) year ... so do like me and go #walletclosed and then get it for gold.  I'm quite happy with just spending a lill bit around x-mas.  But if that money gets me a load of gold, and there is nothing I can spend it on ... THEN I'll NOT spend any more money on anything until gold i gone :D

Wow, wasn't expecting this to show up in the premium shop immediately. Its certainly tempting but not sure I wanna waste £34 on something that turns out to be disappointing. One of the minor things that puts me off with the Skorp G is not being able to apply other camo's to it. If they did I would quite probably buy it.

After reading through as a fair amount of threads on the SU, I think I've come to the decision I won't be buying it and might will likely end up getting the Skorpion G whenever it comes up for sale next. I don't think I will regret it as I'm only 100k exp from unlocking the Grille 15 and already have the UDES 03 so I'm not lacking for stealthy/ long range TD's and I also think the Skorpion will encourage more active play instead of constant bush-camping (which is what I've been more consciously forcing myself to do anyway). My 1 week rental wasn't probably a long enough to truly judge the tank and I could probably do better with the Skorpion G with a proper crew. I've also read quite a lot of comments today saying how the Skorpion can be used for brawling whereas the SU cant.

 

Though I dislike the aesthetics of the Skorpion I think that can be overcome as I've only just discovered that tanks can be re-skinned and remodelled which sounds quite promising but I need to get clued up on the processes to achieve that. I'm already a Blender user and have been doing 3D modelling in different forms for 20+ years so this could be a nice like side adventure for my own benefit.
