[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

SU-122-44


VII

annoSU122_44.png

6750

The SU-122-44 is a Soviet tier 7 premium tank destroyer.

Development was started in June 1944 by the Uralmash Design Bureau. The vehicle was based on the T-44 chassis and had a conventional configuration, with the front placement of the fighting compartment. In October, People's Commissariat of the Tank Industry considered the SU-122-44 project. In December the design project was ready. However, the SU-100M-2 with the rear placement of the fighting compartment was preferred.

The SU-122-44 is a Tier VII Premium Russian Tank Destroyer. Also known as "Stalin's Hammer" Despite being a premium tank, the SU-122-44 boasts extremely high DPM, has an excellent angled armor for its tier, excellent mobility and speed, and great ammo capacity. The SU-122-44 is also an amazing brawler and can outbrawl almost any tier 7 or lower tank. This tank is extremely fun, and is basically "go big or go home"

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good alpha and amazing rate of fire, with almost 3000 damage-per-minute
  • Good top speed and great maneuverability, hard to flank and makes it an excellent flanker (by TD standards).
  • Very good frontal armor, almost immune to T5 tanks, T6 medium tanks and possibility to bounce ~175mm penetration guns
  • Superior to the contemporary SU-152 in all but RoF and HP, amazing credit maker even for a premium tank.
  • Great camouflage values, adding sixth sense helps keep you hidden immensely.


Cons:


  • Bothersome aim time and below average accuracy, limits medium to long range sniping.
  • Rather expensive ammunition. Combined with high rate of fire, the gun can burn a lot of credits very quickly.
  • No preferential matchmaking (still meets tier 9 tanks), penetration is lacking against high tier heavies with weak gold ammo.
  • Nonexistent gun depression and restrictive gun arc
  • Only trains 4 crew members, with 1 loader. Does not match with TDs after the SU-100 apart from the SU-100M1 and SU-101


Performance

With a gun that's for all intents and purposes as good as the SU-152's best 122mm gun (7.5 to 8.11 Rate of Fire), this tank has one of the best damage per minute values in the game, combined with a low, sneaky profile and high maneuverability, and a bit of sloped armor to boot. A scary tank to face, this premium tank is atypical for premium tanks for having an amazing gun while keeping the benefits of a normal tank. This has made the SU-122-44 to be considered "overpowered" by many players, and a ludicrous credit maker (especially with premium time added into the mix, one can make 50K if they deal at least 1.5K damage and win).

Although the SU-122-44 has an extreme DPM and quite good armor, it still is fragile due to its low health and reliance on sloping - artillery will annihilate you, often times in one shot. To make the situation worse, most tier 8 and 9 heavies you find will laugh as you bounce your fairly low penetration gun on them while it takes them two (albeit much slower firing) shots to kill you, unless you can fire at their sides or rear. HOWEVER, if you can fire at their lower glacis, then you can penetrate any tank you fight. Simply put, you can penetrate any tier 7 tank or lower with your gun from the front. For tier 8 or 9 tanks, firing at their lower glacis is almost a surefire penetration. A note of caution for tier 8 or 9 tanks however, it is not uncommon to meet tankers playing this tank while using premium ammo exclusively so one should not get careless and expect to bounce as this tank will punish you for it, but the gun mantlet will absorb most shots that hit it.


There is one thing you must note, however. The SU-122-44 gets tracked often, so it is highly recommended to train all crew members in repairs.
