The T-34 was a highly effective tank in the hands of the Red Army during WWII. The T-34 also spawned a special tank destroyer version known as the SU-85, with “SU” denoting Samokhodnaya Ustanovka, or “self-propelled carriage”. The SU-85 was developed in response to the appearance of heavier and better armored German tanks such as the Tiger I and Panther. Converted from the SU-122 self-propelled howitzer chassis, the new tank destroyer featured an 85mm D-5T high-velocity gun. Production of the SU-85M commenced in mid-1943, but it was eventually replaced by the SU-100 the following year. The SU-85M was an improved variant that featured the casemate from the SU-100. This superstructure was larger and offered more space, thus allowing a total of 60 ammo rounds to be carried rather than the regular 48. Another characteristic of the SU-85M was a commander’s cupola taken from a T-34/85 tank.

Dragon has now released a Premium Edition model of the SU-85M. Produced to an accurate 1/35 scale, the kit contains many upgraded parts such as photo-etched components for intricate pieces (for example, spare-track tie-downs, fuel tank straps, and engine louvers and grills), plus a metal gun barrel. For sheer convenience, there are Magic Tracks too. What makes this kit even more versatile is its 2-in-1 nature, for it permits either an SU-85M or an SU-100 Early Production vehicle to be built. Thus, alternative parts such as fenders, gun barrels and gun shields are all included in the box. This Premium Edition kit builds upon the vehicle’s earlier success and offers modelers even more than before!
