Soviet SU-85M Tank Destroyer
 

Between August 1943 and September 1944, 2329 SU-85 tank destroyers were produced. The planned follow-up tank was the SU-100. He was an evolution of the SU-85. This tank had a modified chassis and a 75 mm thick frontal armor.

For the SU-100 the cannon D-10S L/56 was planned. However, in July 1944 there were still problems with the new ammunition typ BR-412. The new produced SU-100 tanks were inevitably armed with the old cannon D-5S L/52. This tank type was called SU-85M.

By December 1944 315 pieces were produced by the SU-85M tank destroyer. After that, the SU-100 tank was equipped as planned with the D-10S L/56 cannon.
