Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Gun range: stock: 1150 m, top: 1200 m
  • Good mobility
  • Crucial top gun can seriously damage tier 7.
  • Gun range can reach end map easily
  • Good radio range


Cons:


  • Top gun has poor accuracy and aim time as stock one with lower ammo capacity
  • Almost a half minute to reload on top gun.
  • Bad gun elevation and narrow gun traverse.
  • Slow acceleration.


Performance

SU-122A can be a fearsome arty with its 152 mm Howitzer D-1. Technically if it hits any tier 5 or lower, it should be an instant kill. But the great gun has drawbacks in: aim time, reload time, accuracy and ammo capacity.

The 152mm has almost 30s reload and 7s aim time, so make your shots count. The stock 122 mm Howitzer M-30 can be good choice, as it reloads almost 2x faster and has more ammo, but has the same aim time, accuracy, and lower damage.

Lastly this tanks elevation is bad. So you may need relocate a lot or learn the maps to know the best spot(s).

Overall it can be difficult grind unless you're a confident arty player, however it gives a lot of basic experience for playing upper tier SPG's, and can be a good credit maker thanks to the high damage even against tier 7 heavies.


Early Research

  • Nothing carries over from the SU-5.
  • First, research the 152 mm Howitzer D-1.
  • Next, research the M-80 Engine.
  • Now, research the SU-122A enhanced Suspension.
  • Finally, research the 12RT Radio.
