Red Machines 2: SU-100 Self-Propelled Gun. <font color=\"#FF0000\" face=\"Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif\">Expected to arrive mid/end of Septamber 2020!</font>
The Red Machines Series is devoted to the hardware of the Red Army. Each book offers in-depth information, much of it new to the west, as well as a large number of photos, of which most are unpublished. Each book includes blueprints, drawings, colour profiles and data tables, to describe the development and production variants of each vehicle.
The SU-100 was the Red Army's most powerful medium tank destroyer of World War 2 and was developed for anti-tank fire support to the T-34-85 in the same way as the SU-85 had complemented the original T-34. As with the SU-85 before it, the SU-100 was delayed in entering service. Although introduced late in the war, the SU-100 was heavily engaged in the final push into the Axis countries, with major combat engagements in Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and in the assault on Berlin. The SU-100 proved a particularly potent "Zveroboi" or "animal hunter" in that it could easily dispatch Tiger, King Tiger and Panther tanks at medium range.
The vehicle had no secondary armament, however, and proved vulnerable when engaged in close fighting without infantry support as occurred during some of these late war battles. More than 300 photos as well as 6 colour profiles.
