Today’s review of the new vehicles of “Weapons of Victory” touches a soviet self-propelled gun: SU-122-54, as well as the Japanese fighter J2M2 (not covered on TAP).


Vyacheslav “BVV_d” Bulannikov, Game Designer:

The top self-propelled gun of the Soviet line. The machine is designed on the basis of components and assemblies of the T-54  from the 50’s. This self-propelled gun has good armour protection and excellent armament with its 122-mm D-49 cannon, which is a modification of the well-known D-25T, but with a higher rate of fire and its more punchy post-war APCR and HEAT ammunition, for auxiliary weapons it used two 14.5mm Vladimirov machine guns.

Svetlana Smirnova, Artist:

A very interesting, full of detail, self-propelled gun. The hull was welded from rolled armour plates located at larger angles of inclination. We have modelled all the details on the top of the vehicle  – such as the commander’s cupola with a rangefinder and a turret with an anti-aircraft KPVT machine gun.

The chassis of the machine was completely borrowed from the T-54 tank.
