For those that watched the “Inside the Hatch” video in the post previous to this one, you may have heard Nick Moran read a quote from a PS Magazine Article on the operation of the M56 Scorpion. We figured that was as good an excuse as any to hunt down the original article and post it here for everyone to read. This article comes from issue # 76 published in 1959. For those interested in the M56 Scorpion, rumor has it that next year Osprey will be releasing a New Vanguard series book titled “M-50 Ontos and M-56 Scorpion 1956-1970, US Tank Destroyers of the Vietnam War” by Ken Estes.
And here is a video promoting the M56 Scorpion at the time that it went into service.
