I like how I been seeing M56 Scorpion's play like front line heavy tanks.

Why would I spend the money on a TD that can only train 4 MAN CREWS.  That only works for the following tanks:   

 

M8A1

T25

T28

T95  

 

We have 15 tanks total in the American TD line 11 of them have 5 man crew. Why the hell didn't you develop a TD that works for the large majority of American Tank destroyer crew.     

 

 

WG please use some common sense.

 The Scorpion can deal over 2,200 damage points per minute and penetrate 275mm of armor. Put simply, if you’re unlucky enough to take a hit from the Scorpion, all the aspirin in the world won't help you.

 

>275 penetration only with gold rounds (HEAT)

 

>Put simply, if you’re unlucky enough to take a hit from the Scorpion, all the aspirin in the world won't help you.

and 240 alpha isn't scary by any tier 7 standards. Most 105mm stuff (like T29/Jagdpanther) have 320 alpha, 122 stuff have 390 (IS-2/SU-122-44), and RNG forbid you get blapped by a Sturer Emil (490) or SU-152 HEAT (700).

 

10/10 misinformation.

I'm glad this tank is being sold again, I still feel like it should be on the tech tree as the American tree has 2 rich TD lines but still I'm going to go ahead and buy one.

It really should be added to the tech tree. The M56 is a great tank just don't try to do things with it that you can't. Its small size and gun depression allows it to work ridge lines but when ever possible it should be a true sniper. The Scorpion reminds me a lot of the Nashorn but faster.

I love mine, good mobility, relatively rng-free gun and good gun arc means you have a wide firing lane without de-camoing. Makes great money for me on account of reliable dpm and cheap ammo.

 

​I made a quick little summary video with a top gun ace tanker if anyone is interested

At $10, I would feel like I was wasting my money.  At $35 (CDN), just no.  This td is far too map and team dependent to be worth buying.  Granted, I aced it within my first 10 battles, but it's just not useful in most situations.
