Is is just me that feels like the Scavenger is like a tier V obj.140 or T62A. It has a very strong turret, a monstrous 75mm, a well angled and armoured frontal armour profile and good mobility. It can also sidescrape, is low slung and has odd rear armour. Sound broken yet?

Hmmm. I see where you're coming from, but I don't think it's broken as such. Mobility is nothing too special, DPM is average, and gun depression limits the effectiveness of the strong turret. Sidescraping is also a bit of a last-ditch thing, over-angling can be unforgiving. Overall, not OP, but certainly strong. Or maybe I'm just a bad player haha.

What do you mean strong armor? The turret is penetrable by ALL guns at tier 5. If you are *lucky* at your angle, you may get bounces. Check it out yourself at armor inspector.

Troll is a better description than strong. The turret is actually pretty hard to pen in practice too.

Its troll, the bulbous frontal hull can ricochet alot around the edges, but can be penned easily in the centre. Also the turret ring cannot be broken (i think) its armoured all round the turret. Yesterday I ricocheted 4 shells off the scavenger in my M4A3E8, but then that tank does only have 128mm of pen.

I agree with your description, absolutely spot on.
