The SU-100 was a Soviet tank destroyer introduced in December 1944. The chassis and engine were proven on the T-34 tank, but without the need for a turret these vehicles could carry heavier armour and a more powerful gun. The Tank Museum’s SU-100 was built in Czechoslovakia during the 1950s and sold to Egypt soon after. It was captured by the British during the Suez Operation in November 1956.

Tiger 142 of Heavy Panzer Battalion 501 in front of the Grand Theatre in Tunis on around the 27th November 1942.
This was one of the first Tigers to arrive in North Africa, and it appears it was sent into Tunis for propaganda purposes. This official German photograph was the first image of the new tank seen in Britain. It is fitted with the narrower transport tracks.
Other photos of this tank show that the 88mm gun did have a muzzle brake fitted. It was edited out of this photograph by the German censor.
