SU-100. Rebirth of a legend

48

We continue to talk about the cars restored by the Stalin Line historical and cultural complex in cooperation with Wargaming as part of the Remember Everything campaign. We have already talked about the restoration of the Soviet tank T-34, and today we present you the film "SU-100. Revival of a Legend "about the restoration of the legendary Soviet self-propelled gun.


The film tells how the Stalin Line restorers recreate the SU-100 self-propelled artillery mount from a pile of scrap metal, suitable only for remelting. The Wargaming team did not leave the restorers and, step by step, filmed how the specialists are returning the car to its original appearance. To date, the film has received over 1,3 million views on the official World of Tanks channel and has received many positive reviews.

Before the restoration began, the car was stored at a military training ground - without an engine, without a gearbox, half buried in earth. In the fall of 2014, the self-propelled gun was transported to the "Stalin Line" and began to restore. The hull was cleared of soil, the chassis and the gun were dismantled, sorted out and brought into working order. After that, they received an engine from the T-34 from the military, found a gearbox, radiators, control levers with an onboard clutch drive and various small parts: pistol ports, periscopes, and so on.
To maximize compliance historical reliability, rollers and headlights from the war times were installed on the self-propelled gun, and all parts were painted in the regular colors. As a result of the work, the entire car was brought to its original appearance both outside and inside - from the engine and transmission to the fuel tanks and the driver's hatch.

        Well, how is it, the whole body and the chassis is this "heap of scrap metal" ?! Even for a passenger car, a tin body is half the battle, but here are armored plates!

        ... What did you want from the 2004 craft?

        I recently looked at last year's craft "Tankist". Honestly, the presence in the frame of the 'real' BT-7, 34-76, pieces and 'triplets' does not save this UG. Watched?

          Thank you, the tanks there may be like real ones, but the actors with the director are definitely not. A two-minute scene was enough for the eyes.

            I agree. Delirium sandwich. I was especially pleased with the bloody KGB man performed (what a surprise!) Anatoly Kot. And I was surprised to learn that the crew of the T-34-76 consisted of three people.

        One plywood replica of PtsKpfV-28 was also built for the '3 Panfilovites'. I don’t remember the number, but the price came out somewhere in three Vesta frets. Drawing is cheaper and easier. This is exactly what those whose budget does not allow ordering a full-scale running replica of the BTT from a model studio.

            to be honest, "28" didn't make much of an impression on me
            decided to look after numerous positive reviews on the net
            not remembered for anything
            neither dialogues
            neither characters
            no plot moves

            the only "director's find" that I liked
            this is what the fascists are impersonal
            such a dark force that is rushing and must be stopped
            otherwise the film is a checkpoint

              In terms of combat, "28" is comparable to the reference "Ryan", and in terms of the images of tanks close up, it surpasses, and the best cinematic artillery attack of all cinematic artillery attacks that I have seen in the cinema. )))

                when "Ryan" was filmed then there were no such technical possibilities as now
                and "Ryan" looks the first 15 minutes - it's really cool

    That is why it happens so, almost all military equipment was destroyed, there are no planes, there are no tanks, I am completely silent about the captured ones. We have more captured French cannons of 1812 than KV chassis tanks, to say nothing of German equipment. I understand that the metal is needed, it went for remelting, but if you do not know the composition of the steel and the methods of its brewing, nothing really good will come of it when remelting, the compositions of the steels and the casting technology in the instructions for the tanks do not seem to go.

      Well, why is there something left on the battlefields in the ground ... and with each passing year the value of such equipment grows ... the main thing is that it does not fall into the hands of black diggers and traders. In addition, the indifference of local officials also affects the safety of rarities WWII.
      But when this technique falls into the hands of caring people ... those who with a soul perceive all the pain of the Second World War, then literally miracles happen to it ... the technique, literally destroyed by time and battle, is revived from a pile of crumpled metal.
      Many thanks to these people for their noble work. hi

      As if the composition of our armor was (and is) well known, the composition of the German one was carefully studied even by trophies, for sure after the war all the available data were thoroughly studied.

      I have never been a metallurgist, but from those fragmentary knowledge in chemistry and metallurgy that was given to mechanical engineers, I remember that alloying elements burn out during remelting, and therefore they are added at the very end of the melting at a strictly defined temperature and some other conditions.

        Dear Nagan, in the 90s and later I heard strong words from my acquaintances machine-tool workers of Minsk factories about the steel obtained from the melting of armored vehicles. According to them, often in one workpiece there were areas with different hardness and toughness of the metal. The result is a quick wear of cutters and cutters, a decrease in productivity by 2-3-4 times, and frequent rejects due to metal breaks by the tool. This was probably due to the uneven remelting and mixing of the metal, the more refractory and differing in composition pieces of steel did not have time to melt completely.

    Eighteen years ago, my godfather was on a business trip to Kazakhstan. Something related to pipelines, in general, we drove "by compass" across the steppe to GAZ 66. At the same time, he took pictures of what came across on the way:
    an abandoned village, an arch of a collective farm, a trawler in the sands ... One of them had a Su 100. Almost intact, only "bogus". The hatches are open and the trunk is dismantled. They even stopped and examined her. We thought that there might have been a shooting range, but no hits were found. So with this riddle we went on ...

        No. Did not have. And there, in reality, in the frontal sheet there is a hole from the dismantled gun. This is what I saw from the photo. And the photo of the second, by the way, at base 152. My father had such a photo in the depot, as part of an emergency train. Then they replaced it with BTS.

    At the beginning of 1986, the SU-100 was started up and kicked out of the Rembat's box in EXCELLENT CONDITION and under its own power. It was at Borz-3. I can't really take the pedaling of the theme of the tank park during the Second World War ... a lot of pseudo-patriotic pathos and accompanying chatter, apparently to raise patriotism and its derivatives. If the skeleton of this machine was lifted from the range, then it is a no brainer that they were shooting practice at it - it was a target. Then the T-34 is taken to the headmistress and the crew is training in combat firing, before that the epic with the T-34 with their transportation across the country with a claim to worship and veneration of cars, having ANYTHING to do with the fight against fascism, and even produced in the overseas. Now the Su-100 ... Why is this all presented ???
