The Collector's Gem special is presenting a truly unique vehicle this week: the M56 Scorpion. This Tier 7 American tank destroyer is fairly mobile and is equipped with a 90mm gun, but it's the small frame and profile that allows it to be a great sniper.
Want to be the first to get the Scorpion? The vehicle will be available from 8th to 10th September in a special bundle, which includes additional Premium Account time, gold and a garage slot.
We're also holding a contest for all early bird adopters of the M56. Check out the details here!

Besides the vehicle, the package also contains a good amount of gold, a month of Premium Account and a garage slot to store the tank.
