— Official description, Canon Fodder
The M820 Main Battle Tank, better known as the  Scorpion, was a post-war replacement for the M808 and M808B Scorpion tanks used during the Human-Covenant war.
Class History Edit
The M820 was first introduced in
It functions largely the same but is half the mass of the older M808C and M808B.
The tank's main gun is the
M990 Smoothbore Cannon. It cannot fire ammo from previous Scorpion iterations as to allow for future guided rounds and propellants.
“As expected, ONI spares no expense with its "security" Scorpions, outfitting them with experimental ammunition using the latest energetic propellants. Advanced Scorpion with heavy armor and upgraded cannon.”
— Description of ONI's modifications, Canon Fodder
It appears that the M820 can be heavily modified. For example, the
Office of Naval Intelligence equips their Scorpions with experimental technologies, such as an upgraded cannon, heavier armor and the newest rounds with energetic propellants. While,  Hannibal Weapon Systems has modified the tank to fire a directed energy cannon and a pintle mounted gauss repeater.
