Need Clarification re/ arrsepedia "Scorpion" entry

Hi . Just saw arrsepedia entry for Scorpion APC. It says they were withdrawn from service in 1994 "mainly due to concerns about fumes from main armament". (76 mm). A good deal of my time in was served in AVGP Cougar (scorpion turret/ Piranha hull) Fire support Vehicles, as both a gunner and CC. Now, if there is any chance I can wrangle any money out of the army for health reasons, I want to know. What were the issues re/ fumes from the 76? How do I properly malinger this? (cough gag cough)

If you are not dying of cancer I think you have shit out with that one.
 
think the real reason was scorp with gun = naughty nasty tank :D
according to central europe conventional weapons treaty or some such
so Ivan had to get rid of a t 72 for every scorpion
scorp with fox turret nice friendly recon track never hurt anyone :D
fumes = smokescreen for pulling a fast one
