The SU-152 was a self-propelled 152 mm howitzer on the chassis of a KV-1 heavy tank.


Initially the SU-152 had no machine gun, but later a 12.7 mm DShK was added on an anti-aircraft mount.

Combat History

The 152 mm gun fired a very large shell, making this an effective weapon against infantry. It could also be used against tanks, although the gun's low muzzle velocity made it inaccurate.
