[Premium Shop] Collectors Gem of the Week: M56 Scorpion

Tank Commanders!

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!

Roll out!

As the name implies, this package is meant to please the tank collectors, as it contains a rare Premium vehicle. In fact, this week a new vehicle makes a debut, namely the American glass cannon: the M56 Scorpion. Watch out, this vehicle is really fragile. We mean it. Proceed with caution. 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.

Pros:
  • Small profile. Hard to hit at range
  • Excellent gun handling and accuracy
  • Excellent gun depression and gun arc at -10° and -60° respectively
  • Highly agile & good mobility
Cons:
  • Replaces the Medium 1 as having the weakest armor in-game.
  • Small size means tightly-packed modules & crew
  • Slow gun traverse means the vehicle must rotate at close ranges
  • Mediocre DPM and low alpha damage
  • The ammo rack is visible from the rear
