Vietnamese army continues to operate SU-100

46
The Vietnamese army continues to operate Soviet SU-100 self-propelled artillery mounts, which were put into service as early as World War II.


Vietnam received these self-propelled guns in the mid-60s. Currently, the SU-100 continues to be used by coastal defense units fleet.

Vietnamese army continues to operate SU-100


Vietnamese portal baodatviet.vn recalls that the SU-100 is created on the chassis tank T-34-85. Weight - 31,6 tons; length with gun 9,45 m; width 3,0 m; height 2,25 m; Crew 4 people. Frontal armor -75 mm. The main self-propelled gun is a 100-mm gun, similar to that mounted on the medium T-54/55. At a distance of 2 km it is capable of penetrating 125 mm armor. Engine power B-2-34 is 500 liters. from. The maximum speed on the highway is 50 km / h. Cruising range - 310 km.

The Vietnamese cite the absence of a rotating tower as a major disadvantage. This, in their opinion, limits the ability to use the machine. They also note that, although the 100-mm gun is unable to hit modern tanks, it still easily destroys infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers and other mobile equipment, reports RG-Sil

Nevertheless, despite the apparent inconsistency with the modern requirements of this combat vehicle, this technique is in good condition and for many years will be able to protect Vietnamese territory from attacks from the sea.

          Well, about the caterpillars I will not say anything. And the silkworm pupae ..... So, go to the supermarket in Vietnam, go immediately to the "meat" department .... they are there .... it is recommended to eat with rice ... someone like that, but I couldn’t work without vodka recourse

            To whom it is, but I could not with vodka. Moreover, their vodka is worse than our beet moonshine. Maximum - the snake ate. Normal, like a chicken. Well, a crocodile yet. Also normal. But somehow this all sorts of arthropod rubbish .... Nah ... True, it was a long time ago - even under the Soviet regime. Maybe now they’ll serve some kind of cockroach in a restaurant - and you won’t understand what you ate ....
            And as for the tank tracks - I wouldn’t blame the Viet for such stupidity so indiscriminately. They know very well what tank tracks are and what they eat with. Comprehensible pretty people. Especially if there is anyone to compare. And I, believe me, have it. Hardworking as ants. Unpretentious like camels. If they don’t understand what, they just pull on the sleeve to show it again. They will fall, fill cones, break arms and legs - and will not calm down until they learn. At least after the Arabs something to learn Viet - the soul is resting.

              I agree with your characterization of the Vietnamese ... but now there are "nuances": the Vietnamese are gradually "penetrating" commodity-money relations, (I’m not saying about everyone. But this is obviously part of ...) Vietnamese are not only hardworking, but they’re also economical, therefore they don’t “scatter them with good.” In Vietnam, I didn’t notice that they were fond of “arthropods” ... well, yes: they eat snakes ... frogs, crocodiles, ostriches and tourists ... tourists are only happy about this. supermarkets in the "meat" departments of the "exotic" are mainly silkworm dolls and frogs (maybe something else happened, but I don’t remember ... it seems there were snails). The frogs are tasty and without vodka wink it’s true that we didn’t have lunch or dinner without beer. And I forgot to say about dolls: for “reliability”, it’s nice to use hot sauce (ginger ... except for any one), in general, whatever you like) Russian vodka in Vietnam to buy it’s possible (if its reserves are exhausted), although it’s "not lying on every corner." Not bad Vietnamese rum .... it is produced there using French technology. But the "arthropods" are carried away in Cambodia: at least cockroaches, at least spiders, at least grasshoppers. .. Nevertheless, I did not dare to try them: cockroaches are not to blame ... they were prepared with me at ernoty oil (it seems like they haven’t changed it for a long time) and I was “scared of carcinogens”

                When the Union head, and not other places, they thought where to get an obedient, working, undemanding mass on the conveyor on the VAZ. True, when at the beginning of the 90's they began to send them home - I don’t even say about containers with pots - the toilets in the VAZ hostel turned and sent home! Household ... lol

            It’s not clear to me what the sea target in the radius of the direct shot of the D-10C is supposed to be. There is either a shortage or excess for hitting a yacht - it will flash through and a shell will sink into the sea.

              The ammunition SU-100 has a sea fragmentation grenade. You can negotiate with the Vietnamese and fit your yacht to check how this grenade works.

    But I’m wondering: since 100500 t54 / 55 and other su100 with a 100 mm gun are operated in the world, then maybe it’s worth developing for them what epic PBS or cumulative ammunition capable of punching 700-800 millimeters?

    That is what you cannot deny the Vietnamese - neat and neat, kind of East Germans. Several times I was in Vietnam, on the streets and roads, in addition to modern cars, both Willys and Gaz-69 drive and, in general, a bunch of different antique equipment in perfect condition. So, the fact that they cherish the "hundred" seems to be by itself, well done!
