Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render that at first glance might look quite similar to the one posted yesterday. On closer inspection though, you find that it is of the main varient of the ISU-152, the ISU-122:

ISU-122


The ISU-122 was a logical modification to the ISU-152. The latter's ML-20S howitzer had had its original carriage used for the A-19 field gun, and this similarity was shared by the ISU mounting. While a prototype had been completed in December of 1943, production of the ISU-122 didn't start until March, when the production of hulls had started to outstrip the production of howitzers.

The ISU-122 was used similarly to ISU-152 as an infantry support vehicle, but its greater accuracy soon found it a role as a formidable tank killer. Despite the lighter ammunition, the ISU-122 did not manage a greater rate of fire over its larger armed brother, primarily due to the antiquated design of the breech of the A-19S. An improved version of this gun that solved this issue, the D-25S, was added along with a redesigned mantlet to make the ISU-122S, but large stocks of the older gun meant that both designs remained in production for the rest of the war.

The ISU-122 did not have the same kind of post-war longevity as the ISU-152, serving until only the start of the 1960s and not receiving as extensive modifications. In total, 1150 ISU-122s were built, and ours was made by Seth Soldier, who modified our IS-2 made originally by Rad, Toddel and Matt Baker.
