This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Includes 2 tanks. The kit is made of styrene and needs to be glued to be assembled and is not a snap together kit. It is meant mainly to be a wargaming kit, i.e. you can mass assemble a platoon/group/regiment/corps in a short amount of time. However, the kit is still designed to be accurate, especially as far as scale is concerned, and as accurate as can be within the confines of a two part mold.
The SU-100 proved to be an effective means of destroying German heavy tanks and Tank Destroyers such as the Panther, Tiger, Ferdinand, JagdPanther and JagdTiger and so played a very important role during the final phases of WW2.
The vehicle remained in service with the Red Army well after the war; production continued in the Soviet Union until 1947 and into the 1950s in Czechoslovakia. It was withdrawn from Soviet service in 1957.
Many Warsaw Pact countries also used the SU-100, as did Soviet allies such as Egypt, Angola and Cuba. The SU-100 saw service in the fighting that accompanied the 1956 Suez Crisis, in which the Egyptians used SU-100s against Israel's M4 Sherman tanks. The vehicle was also utilized in the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
