Miniart 1:35 - SU-85 Mod. 1943 (Mid Production) With Full Interior - Plastic Model Kit #35187

The SU-85 was a Soviet self-propelled anti-tank gun produced in mid-1943 for fighting against the new and more advanced German Tiger and Panther tanks featuring armour too thick to be penetrated by the older Soviet tanks such as the T-34 and KV-1. The number "85" stands for the bore of its armament, 85 mm D-5S gun, which was modified from the 85 mm anti-aircraft gun by Fyodor Petrov and was strong enough to penetrate the Tiger I from 1000 m. The advantages of the SU-85 also included excellent mobility and a standard commander's cupola that ensured good visibility. Though successfully used in combat until the end of the war, the SU-85 was replaced by the SU-100 which proved to be more effective.

The kit contains 805 parts.
