The SU-152 heavy self-propelled gun, Called the Big Game Hunter or Zookeeper, was an effective antidote to the German Tiger and Panthers tanks. This was the 152mm ML-20 gun-howitzer mounted on a KV-1s hull. 704 were produced, but only a single regiment (6 batteries of 2 SU-152) was available in time for the battle of Kursk. The 152mm gun-howitzer fired a massive Armour Piercing High Explosive (APHE) shell that would smash any tank in existence at the time.

The weapon was relatively low velocity, which meant that at long range the shell would be ‘dropping’ onto the enemy tank (because of the curved trajectory of the round) and ploughing through the thinner armour on its deck. At closer range the kinetic and explosive energy of the shell could rip the turret clean off a tank. But the downside of this power was a low rate of fire and limited ammunition capacity (only 20 rounds were carried in each SU-152).

Triumphant at Stalingrad, the first months of 1943 saw the Red Army racing westwards, surrounding and destroying three Germans armies, only stopping when a German counterattack in March combined with the spring muds halted the offensive. After months of preparation, the Germans launched their summer offensive at Kursk, only to be smashed back by the revitalised Red Army. Not giving the Germans any respite, the Soviet forces struck with a continuous series of hammer blows along the entire front, driving all before them for the rest of the year. The Red Army had learned how to win, and was now unstoppable
