It can also hide close in cover and be somewhat immune to counter-battery fire from low arcing shots. It is harder to hit moving targets with the SU-8 due to the significantly low shell velocity. As of 8.6 the SU-8 has become much more similar to its parent SPG, the SU-122A, with similar (albeit slightly better) aim time, accuracy, and damage on both guns. It does however boast an increased ammo count on both counts.+|With this artillery, you can almost fire all the way across the map.

?Information regarding the prototype contain large uncertainties. Some sources claim the SU-8 was produced, while others claim the project remained only on paper. Design work on the project started in 1932 under the leadership of Professor F.L. Khlystov from the designer office of Artillery Academy of the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army (RKKA). Most likely only one experimental version, built in 1935, existed as an upgrade to the SU-6 using a 400 hp engine. The reason for cancelling the project was because the T-28 was no longer being produced. +Information regarding the prototype contain large uncertainties.

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.

It can also hide close in cover and be somewhat immune to counter-battery fire from low arcing shots. It is harder to hit moving targets with the SU-8 due to the significantly low shell velocity.

Pros:


  • Good shell damage
  • Good vehicle accerelation
  • High ammo capacity
  • High gun arc
  • Fastest aim time of all the Tier V SPGs (with the GLD, the aim time will be lightning fast!)


Cons:


  • Low accuracy
  • Lower damage than it's Tier 5 counterparts
  • Low vehicle traverse speed
  • Hitting range is not enough for all the maps


Performance

If you can hit the enemy's rear or sides, you can hit hard. Otherwise,you generally hit about "200-300". This SPG is a vast improvement over the SU-5 because it has high ammo capacity and much better range. It has the fastest aim time of all the tier V counterparts, so with the GLD, it aim will be lightning fast, a significant advantage. With higher ammo capacity, you can expect more shots, though still try to make every shot count, and with better range, you don't have to keep up with your team, though it's still not enough.
