The SU-100's story in history

The SU-100 was developed by the Soviet Union in 1944 and operated as anti-tank artillery during World War II. 2,300 SU-100 were produced by July 1945, and large numbers of SU-100 were sent to Soviet allies after the end of World War II. The SU-100 was equipped with a 100mm gun on the body of the  VI T-34-85  which contributed to the improved firepower. It was widely operated in defeating German heavy tanks at the Eastern Front.

During the Korean War, North Korea operated the SU-100 provided by the Soviet Union. The SU-100 had strong firepower, while the armour was thin, making its defence vulnerable. Therefore, it was mainly used for infantry support and anti-tank missions.

After the first battle in Budapest in January 1945, the Soviet SU-100 was used in Hungary's Balaton operation in March. The SU-100 was reborn with the help of Wargaming. Check the remarkable moments of this tank destroyer in the footage below.

SU-100 in World of Tanks

The Tier VII  VI SU-100 has a rather high damage potential among the same-tier vehicles. The strength of its 100/122mm gun is enough to offset the weaknesses of its low hit rate and long reload time.

If you want to feel the excitement of a one-shot-kill, the SU-100 will be a good choice. Don't miss the chance to experience the true charm of a tank destroyer in battle!
