The CVR(T) Scorpion is one of a family of light armor developed from a single platform. Known for its speed and powerful jaguar 4.2 engine, these tracked reconnaissance vehicles are capable of sustained speeds above 100kmh.
Notably, this example is equipped with a “swim screen”, a 4-sided collapsible “tub-like canvas” structure that, when raised, allows the Scorpion to swim across rivers using its tracks to move itself in the water.
With a 76mm main gun, a secondary .30 cal machine gun, and full night vision equipment, it could handle most threats in its class. Its main job while in service was to scout ahead of a main force on point to locate any opposition, a demanding and dangerous task.
The Society’s example was made in Belgium for the Belgian Army and was attached to the 2nd Commando Regiment (Recce). This vehicle saw service in a peacekeeping role, most notably in Kismayo in southern Somalia in the early 1990s. Most of the time it was detailed to protect aid convoys, being able to keep up with the supply trucks.
