The FV101 Scorpion 90 is a Tier 4 progression Light Tank under Marat Shishkin's dealership.

History[]

Class: Light Tank
Developed: 1980s
Service: 1982+
Vehicles Built: cca 240
Operators: Malaysia, Venezuela, Nigeria and Indonesia

In the 1980s and early 1990s, the Scorpion was still in service of several countries but by this time it was growing increasingly obsolete. Instead of just phasing it out, these countries opted to have it upgraded with a 90mm CMI gun in a modified turret along with a complete refit of the original vehicle. This way, the Scorpion continues to serve in the 21st century.

Vehicle Traits[]

  • Stealthy: This vehicle does not lose any camouflage when moving at any speed, which is handy primarily for scouting.
  • Designate Target: This vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within its line of sight. Designated targets are marked to other players and take increased damage.
  • HESH Rounds: This vehicle can fire special Squash Head rounds. These are extremely effective against angled armor that is typical for Soviet tanks.
  • Improved Reverse: This vehicle can drive backwards much faster than other vehicles can.
