Why can't you camo the Skorpion G ? You can camo the Rudy, T-34/85M and even now the AMX-13-57. So why not let players camo the Skorpion G ? Or like the SU-130 PM count it's skin as camo for all maps.

The Skorpion G has a non-removable skin, the 13-57 has 2 versions, one with a skin that can't be changed and one that's vanilla.

 

You can add camo/emblems to them with mods if you want.

I seen a Skorpion G with camo. So the idea it can't be is BOGGUS. IMHO it's just something that WG's wants to SCREW people with.

I doubt all of that.

There is an unskinned version of the Skorp in the game files but no idea how you get one. As far as I know it's never been offered for sale.

I think a very small handful of accounts had/have it on NA.  For a while you could train reward crew members on the non G skorpion.

I think all of their special skinned tanks can’t opt out of their paint job. I cruised the internet and besides getting side tracked umpteen million times by “intrigues” I found a skorpion skin that won’t make my eyes bleed. The original Creme Brûlée gold with the Guy Feiri tattoo splashed across the turret never did win me over.

You've seen people using mods is what you've seen.  I've seen a black one - but only the user can see that it's black.

Mods only change what the tanks look like on their machine, everyone else sees vanilla tank or whatever mod they have for a specific vehicle.

 

 

say, for example, you were using one of Avalon's skin removal mods, which would allow you to put camo on the thing.  You'd see the tank with your choice of camo on your screen while I'd see the stock skinned version on my screen.

What Tsavo said.  If you use a mod that shows a black Scorpion, then all Scorpions will be black.  If you are not using the black mod, no Scorpion will appear black.  The mods only impact what a player will see on the computer the mod is installed on....it does not impact what others see on their end.

The Skorpion G, Guard, Defender and Mutz's paint job count Camo.

 

They just will not let you change it to something more eye pleasing.

It does "exist."  WGNA/WGHQ just has to be willing to sell it as is.

I thought I had heard it was being sold on the EU server, but I don't recall specifics.  It may have been the Chinese server where ANYTHING goes.

It's so popular I'm surprised there aren't 15 variations for sale.

And as far as I know, the special skin the Skorp has does count as camo on any terrain, like a reward camo.  The tank has such a bad concealment rating, you'd never know it though....

The scorp G came out before removable styles, same with tanks like the defender.  unless they were willing to go back and make the scorp G camo a style instead of something locked in we would have to live with it as is
