Good tank. Slower than the Skorp G, but better camo values.
It doesn't to 360 rotation, but gun arc is wide and it can traverse fairly quickly.

Well you still see more Skorpion Gs for a good reason, it is more flexible on the battlefield and it has been sold 253 times (number might be slightly low for the sake of creating humour :trollface:) since it came out.

I like the concept but the Skorpion G can carry better. Basically you choose between stealth or mobility and mobility is king right now. I will consider the purchase further...

SU-130 PM was available for purchase from day 1 of the Winter Challenge marathon. We're simply bringing it back to the shop so that players who didn't have an opportunity (or possibility) to get it in December can do so now, if they want to.

 

There should be no surprise here, it's how things have been for a long time and currently we're not planning to change it. We will continue to give players chances to purchase tanks missing from their collection. Some tanks will reappear sooner, some later, some maybe will never get this chance (so no promises here). There is nothing appalling about it, but of course, you have a right to your own opinion.

Yeah everybody wasn't playing during the holidays or had access to the offer at that time.

It might not be a scorpion, but i get it nearly free (think it was 10% or 20% w/e) so, can't complain much. This is more of a traditional td tho, unlike scog, this better be played as support, as you are,

1 still keeping nonexistied armor, so you will get punished by anything you met,

2 you also has limited & slow turret, so close encaunters will be even harder and

3 it has quite low profile, so your weakspot options will be reduced to lower parts of engaging enemies, makes it further risky to fight close combats.

Meanwhile, it has

1 better overall camo, makes it actually decent sniper when it caunts,

2 heat as second ammo type,

this might be plus only for me but, as i rarely use premium ammo and using them when its feel needed, aka engaging super heavy armored targets thus, heat comes handier then cr on thoose situations. And both tanks has pretty decent ap shells stats anyway, so they are even there.
