Hobby Master HG7056 Soviet ISU-122 Self-Propelled Gun - 3rd Belorussian Front, Konigsberg, Germany, March 1945 (1:72 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

The Su-122 was an assault gun which used the hull of the T-34 tank and was the result of an April 1942 specification for assault guns aimed with guns of 122mm caliber or higher. The Su-122 was designed by the Uralsky Machine Building factory (UZTM). The first production SU-122s were built at the end of 1942, with a total of 25 vehicles being built.

The Su-122 did reasonably well in combat against the Wehrmacht, although the high explosive antitank (HEAT) round developed for its gun didn't perform up to expectations. Production continued from 1942 until the summer of 1944, with a total of roughly 1,150 vehicles built. Eventually, the Su-152 replaced most of the Su-122s still in service.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a Soviet ISU-122 self-propelled gun that was deployed to Konigsberg, Germany, during March 1945. Pre-order! Ship Date: July 2020

Historical Account: "The Konigsberg Offensive" - The Battle of Konigsberg, also known as the Konigsberg Offensive, was one of the last operations of the East Prussian Offensive during World War II. In four days of urban warfare, Soviet forces of the 1st Baltic Front and the 3rd Belorussian Front captured the city of Konigsberg, present day Kaliningrad, Russia. The siege started in late January 1945 when the Soviets initially surrounded the city. Heavy fighting took place for control of overland connection between Konigsberg and the port of Pillau, however by March 1945 Konigsberg was hundreds of kilometres behind the main front line in the eastern front. The battle ended when the German garrison surrendered to the Soviets on 9 April after a three-day assault made their position untenable.
