NotesThe SU-152 (Samokhodnaya Ustanovka) was a heavy howitzer mounted on the chassis of the KV-1 tank. It could be used in both the indirect fire and direct fire modes and was capable of acting in the role of a tank destroyer. It was first used with some success at both Kursk and later during Operation Bagration, it was issued to independent heavy artillery regiments.
