The SMK-100 Super Heavy Tank

The SMK-100 super heavy tank was the pride of the Soviet Union. Envyous of designs and prototypes comming out of earily 1930s Britain and later the French AMX-42 Grognard, the leadership of the USSR wanted something comparable of their own and issued order for the speedy developement of such a monster. Design Bureau of the KhPZ won the award and created the Sergey Mironovich Kirov-100 Super Heavy Tank. It was a simple design combining the hull of the Su-14 br.2 heavy assault gun with the raised hull of the T-35 very heavy tank, having nothing in common with the SMK heavy tank. The result was a considerable success, a heavy design bristling with guns and turrets on all sides. It looked marvoleus on parades and became the pride of the Red Army. However as a first generation- super heavy tank featured numerous problems, cheif among them, way overloaded transmission, uneven weight distribution, ridiculesly poor service record and poor ammunition layout. As the 1940 Finish war proved, these hogs were vulnerable indeed. Resulting upgrades increased its poor combat record but the design still sufered veary poorly when faced with faster, harder hitting panzers and kampfers of the german army. The KV-300 that replaced it was an overdue blessing to the super heavy tank corps of the red army.
