SU-85 - 85 mm Self Propelled Gun

The SU-85 was a tank destroyer specifically designed to deal with heavy German armor such as the Tiger and the Panther. Designed on the original T-34 medium tank chassis, the SU-85’s sole purpose was to deal with these heavily-armed German terrors. While these tank destroyers were excellent in their assigned roles, they also had no defensive machine gun, making them susceptible to close-range attacks.

The SU-85 was only produced for a short time until the Red Army deployed the new T-34/85, mounting the same 85mm gun on a T-34. Because of this improvement on the T-34, production of the SU-85 was ceased and Soviet factories began turning out the next generation of tank destroyers, the SU-100. Although the Soviets during World War II no longer produced the SU-85, it saw continued use through other 20th century conflicts.

Much like the Soviet tanks, our version of the SU-85 is also based on the chassis of our T-34 model.
