[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

The Rheinmetall Skorpion G is a German tier 8 premium tank destroyer.

Development of the second series of self-propelled guns on the basis of the Panther tank was started by the Rheinmetall company in January 1943. The design plans for the 12,8 cm Skorpion were completed on April 2, 1943. Existed only in blueprints.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent alpha damage, the highest among tier 8 premium vehicles
  • Good top speed and decent acceleration allows for rapid relocation
  • Has a fully traversable turret
  • Great accuracy with fairly good DPM
  • Its special camouflage provides an innate concealment bonus


Cons:


  • Mobility is hampered by terrible terrain resistances and hull traverse
  • Horrible gun bloom with hull/turret traverse extends aiming time considerably
  • Extremely thin armor is easily penetrated by even HE shells
  • Sub-optimal shell velocity and gun depression, -7 achievable only at the sides
  • Low view range and awful camouflage values, camo net and binoculars recommended


Performance

The Rheinmetall Skorpion G plays most like a very bloated Rhm.-Borsig Waffenträger with substantially better mobility and accuracy at the expense of inferior camouflage, gun handling, and DPM. Thankfully, the mobility, penetration, and alpha damage allow you to remain useful even in tier 9 and 10 battles. As with every low armor tank, you should pay special attention to not getting hit, as most hits will result in damage. Under the right circumstances you can even play the Rheinmetall Skorpion G like a medium tank, but it is a fine line between success and failure. Support your team by striking at distracted enemies and vehicles that are still reloading. In some rare instances you can also trade shots, especially versus lower tier mediums with 75mm guns. Due to the horrible dispersion values, snapshots won't connect most of the time. It is really important to let the gun aim, especially since you will be stuck reloading for over 10 seconds.

The 246mm of penetration on the AP rounds allows you to damage most tanks you will encounter reliably, which is especially important for a premium tank, since one typically uses them to earn credits. While it does have great credit earning potential, the same cannot be said for crew training - the crew layout of the Skorpion only matches that of the Tier 4 Marder 38T, and the Commander doubles as the Loader.

It is important to remember that unlike the Rhm.-Borsig Waffenträger, the Rheinmetall Skorpion G has poor camouflage ratings and a very large silhouette (comparable to the Panther II). Situations in which the Rhm.-Borsig Waffenträger could have remained hidden or simply slunk into the nearest ditch to avoid being hit are often certain death for the much larger Rheinmetall Skorpion G. This can be partially mitigated with the use of a camouflage net, but you are still likely be spotted after your first shot unless there is substantial foliage cover between you and your target.

At the beginning of the battle you can decide to rush a key location or pick a TD spot. Even if you are doing the latter, watch for gaps on the minimap. Once a gap presents itself, exploit it and use your mobility to flank the enemy and put the pressure on. Due to the mobility, this tank is also nicely suited for cleanup late during a match, just make sure you don't overextend yourself and end up in a spot with no way out.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

* As mentioned above, the Rheinmetall Skorpion was intended to be an artillery, not a tank destroyer.
