Kutusov's Heroes (Plastic) (SUAB10)

Kutusov's Heroes (Plastic) (SUAB10)
Leytenant Aleksey Zhidkov sat in the turret hatch of his T-34 listening to the rumble of diesel engines as the dawn light crept slowly over the lip of the ravine. Counting the shapes emerging from the darkness around him, it looked like the battalion would have 18 tanks today, so they'd left three on the roadside during the march—none of them his, he noted with pride. The smoke from their exhausts hovered over them like a fine mist. Aleksey felt his own tank vibrating as the big engine idled. He liked to think that it was shaking with anticipation at the coming action.

T-34 Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX54)
The robust T-34 suited the Red Army. It was simple to make, forgiving of poor maintenance and easy to repair—plus, there were many more rolling out of the factories to replace those that could not be repaired. The latest versions made it much easier for the commander to command while doing their other job as gunner. Their improved hexagonal turret with twin 'Mickey Mouse ear' hatches, often with a cupola for the commander, made the individual tanks faster, and the formations more flexible.

T-70 Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX55)

T-70 Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX55)
The T-70 light tank used automobile engines and easily-manufactured components to create a tank that didn't need a heavy-machinery factory to build. Despite its small size and cheap price, it still packed a useful 45mm gun, nearly the match of the 50mm gun in the German Panzer III medium tank. Until T-34 production ramped up toward the end of 1943, two companies of T-70 light tanks replaced one company of T-34 medium tanks in the second battalion of most tank brigades.

SU-122 Medium SP Battery (SBX60)
In April 1942 several Soviet design bureaus were ordered to design an armoured assault gun mounting 122mm or greater weapon. The most successful design to emerge from this process came from the Uralsky Machine-Building factory, designated the U-35. This design was to go on to become the SU-122, and it was fully adopted, after extensive trials, in December 1942.

SU-152 Heavy SP Battery (SBX59)

SU-152 Heavy SP Battery (SBX59)
The SU-152 heavy self-propelled gun, Called the Big Game Hunter or Zookeeper, was an effective antidote to the German Tiger and Panthers tanks. This was the 152mm ML-20 gun-howitzer mounted on a KV-1s hull. 704 were produced, but only a single regiment (6 batteries of 2 SU-152) was available in time for the battle of Kursk. The 152mm gun-howitzer fired a massive Armour Piercing High Explosive (APHE) shell that would smash any tank in existence at the time.
