The SU-122-54 is a self-propelled 122 mm gun derived from the T-54 chasis designed to fight light armour threats such as infantry. It's main ammo is composed of HEAT rounds, while good against low armour value it suffers against heavy armour.
A unit similar to the ASU-85, the SU-122-54 is designed to fight enemy infantry, with better speed and armour in may a better option if the player wills to sacrifice AP power and accuracy for some extra area of effect damage.
As with other cheap soviet units, the SU-122-54 can work as cannon fodder both defending CVs, FOBs and more expensive units, it also counts with a HMG which may scare copters from coming too close.
With a decent speed and fuel capacity the SU-122-54 is capable to mobilize on its own without requiring too much supply support, this allows them to bring their screen services when assaulting enemy position.
An underdog of the PACT armoury, this unit may be attractive to players wishing to try units other than the usual T series and build challenging decks.
Sometimes known as IT-122 the SU-122-54 was based on the T54 chasis. Between 1955 and 1957, 77 vehicles were built with minor differences between production lots (different commander's cupola etc.). The SU-122-54 had a modified chassis, with small spaces between the first, second and fourth pair of wheels and a large gap between the third, similar to the T-62's and a superstructure, built into the hull, housing the 122 mm M-62-T gun for which the vehicle carries 32 rounds. The secondary armament consisted of two KPVT heavy machine guns, one mounted as an anti-aircraft machine gun near the commander's hatch and the other mounted coaxially with the main gun. The vehicle carried 600 rounds for the machine guns. The main gun has a fume extractor positioned right behind the muzzle brake, some vehicles did not have the fume extractor. Other variations included a different commander's copula.
