Forces of Valor FOV801063A Soviet Su-100 Tank Destroyer [Bonus Klimov Model V-2 V-12 Diesel Engine] (1:32 Scale)

"By powerful artillery fire, air strikes, and a wave of attacking tanks, we're supposed to swiftly crush the enemy."
- Marshal Georgi K. Zhukov

Designed as a tank destroyer, the SU-100 was used extensively during the last year of World War II and saw service for many years afterwards with Soviet allied armies around the world. It was developed in 1944 as an improvement to the SU-85, built on the same chassis as the T-34-85 tank. It was designed and built at the UZTM (Ural Heavy Machinery Factory, also called Uralmash) in Yekaterinburg. The SU-100 quickly proved itself to be among the best self-propelled anti-tank guns of World War II, able to penetrate 125 mm of vertical armor from a range of 2,000 meters. This was quite capable of defeating any German tank in service.

The development was conducted under supervision of L. I. Gorlitskiy, chief designer of all medium Soviet self-propelled guns. Work started in February 1944 with the first SU-100 prototype, called "Object 138", built a month later. After intensive testing with different models of the 100mm gun, Soviet engineers approved the D-10S gun for mass production. This gun was developed in the Constructors Bureau of Artillery Factory No. 9 under guidance of F. F. Petrov. After the Second World War, it was installed on T-54 and T-55 tanks, and its derivatives were in service forty years after its initial development. The hull of the SU-100 had a number of major improvements over another tank destroyer, the SU-85. To begin with, the thickness of the front armor plate was increased from 45 to 75mm and the commander's workplace was created in a small sponson on the right side of the hull. With a separate commander's cupola, this greatly improved the effectiveness of the commander. And, for better ventilation, two ventilator units were installed on the SU-100, whereas the SU-85 has to make do with only one. Eventually, mass production of the SU-100 started in September 1944.
