    Found that the SU-85 were used by the Soviet, Polish and Czechoslovak forces in WWII, how about the SU-100? Anyone know which units?

    In The Polish Army, Su-85s were used by 13th Regiment of Self-propelled Artillery of the 1st Armoured Brigade for instance.

    I have found the profile Jan ( source unknown....). It might be interesting for you.

    I think it is the same self-propelled gun from the profile above. It was used in Romania in 1944. But the unit is unidentified. Judging by uniforms of these guys in your pic , it was the Russian one.

    I'm not sure if Czech got two SPGs only. But it seems to be true that basic type was Su-122 but not the Su-85/100

    Here two pics I have found via the Net.

    The first on shows Su-85 of 13th Regiment. Notice that the front right wheel was damaged. In the second image it is Su-85M of the 24th Regiment.

    On the 11th Match 1944 in Raj town was set the Command of Armoured Artillery consisted of 3 Batteries equipped with 4xSU-85 in each unit. The unit was attached to the 1st Armoured Brigade. On 18th April there were delivered 9 next SU-85s and the name of the unit was changed to the 13th Regiment of Self-propelled Atillery. The order issued on 12th August 1944 excluded the unit from the 1st Armoured Brigade and subordinated to the Headquarters of the 1st Polish Army.

    In June 1944 introduced markings of vehicles :

    The Unit Commander's one - number 300
    The 1st Battery - 310-314
    The 2nd Battery - 320-324
    The 3rd Battery - 330-334
    The 4th Battery - 340-344

    Also at the same time the Polish Eagles appeared on vehicles .

    And here the organization scheme of the unit in May 1944 ( source unknown).

    Because I still think it was the Russian SU-85 , the tactical number isn't C-13 actually but S-13. It is because the Russian letter C is the Latin S.

    I have found that three SU-85s were lent to The Czech Armoured Brigade.

    For the Russian SU-85 you can make the C-13. As far as the Polish one is concerned you can make the 313 vehicle. However I haven't found any images of the SU-85. But there were issued two die-cast models of the SPG. Shots below...
    Of course you know these Polish vehicles were of SU-85 variant but not SU-85M or SU-100.

    Oh...right! Need to check the difference again then, the '85M was just a stopgap before the '100, right? Something with production and some flaws....

    SU-85M - SU-85 with the casemate from the SU-100 tank destroyer, which was larger and could carry up to 60 rounds instead of 48. It also had the same commander's cupola as the one used in the T-34-85.

    Thanks again Wojtek, appreciated! :D

    Yep..the SU-85M ( modified) had features both SU-83 and the SU-100. For instance the commander's cupola with the bulge on starboard making more room for him.

    ...and 60 instead for 48 rounds. So, we're scr*wed for a Polish SU-85M then? Bummer! :(

    Also found that:
    With the advent of the deadlier SU-100 Tank Destroyer, the production of SU-85's was canceled. Sum totally, 2329 SU-85's and 315 SU-85M's were built.
    I thought that 'M' variant was included in the total of 2329 '85's....silly me! :oops: :lol:

    Here you are technical datas for SU-85/100/122.


    Concerning the production datas... according info I have found , from 1942 to 1946 there was assembled : SU-122 - 637, SU-85/85M - 2654, SU-100 - 3037. The SU-85 late version was producing for three months ( September-November ) of 1944 together with SU-100. Then its assembling was finished.
