Rubicon: SU-85 Preview
Rubicon lassen einen neuen Panzer vom Zeichenbrett rollen, mit einer Vorschau auf den sovietischen SU-85.
The SU-85 was a Soviet casemate-style self-propelled gun based on the chassis of the T-34 medium tank. Earlier Soviet self-propelled guns were meant to serve as either assault guns, such as the SU-122, or as tank destroyers; the SU-85 fell into the latter category. The designation “85” signifies the bore of the vehicle’s armament, the 85mm D-5S gun.
On the other hand, the SU-122 was a howitzer or assault gun. The number “122” in the designation represents the caliber of the main armament – a 122mm M-30S howitzer. The chassis also was that of the T-34.
Objective for this project:
– To create a 3-sprue 1/56 (28mm) plastic kit
– Options to build either a SU-85 tank destroyer or a SU-122 assault gun
– Hopefully will include a tank commander
