The ISU-122 was a Soviet WWII self-propelled gun designed mainly for an anti-tank role.
Originally ISU hulls were being used to mount ML-20S 152mm gun-howitzers but the hull
production quickly out paced the gun production so it was decided to mount surplus A-19
122 mm (4.8 in) guns. The A-19 was eventually with a semi-automatic breech block and
the gun became the D-25S and the vehicle became the ISU-122S. The D-25S made it
possible to double the rate of fire from 1.5 rounds/minute to 3 rounds.


The Soviet Red Army crossed into Poland on July 13, 1944 and spent 40 days outside
Warsaw. On September 11, 1944 Soviet forces moved in and in 3 days eliminated
German resistance. On the fourth day the Soviets broke out and began their push
towards Berlin in an effort to be the first army there. On April 20, 1945 Soviet artillery
including ISU-122S began shelling Berlin and continued until the German surrender on
May 2 1945 with a official surrender taking place May 7, 1945.
