Soviet »Samokhodnaya Ustanovka« SU-100 Self-Propelled Anti-Tank Gun

The SU-100 self-propelled anti-tank gun was designed at the Uralmash factory in 1944, and it proved to be the best self-propelled anti-tank gun of World War Two, capable of defeating the Tiger, Panther, Königstiger or any other enemy tank at acceptable combat ranges. The SU-100 remained in production at factories in the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia even after the war, and it continued to serve as a tank destroyer in many Warsaw Pact forces. Many SU-100 self-propelled anti-tank guns were exported to countries in the Middle East, Africa and South America.
