Welcome to the 34th Episode of the Two Tankers and a Cat Podcast!  Closely related to the SU-85, the SU-100 Soviet Union Tank Destroyer incorporated much of its design, revolving around the new D10 100 mm (3.94 in) antitank gun.  The SU-100 arrived in operational units in October 1944 and immediately became popular with Russian crews.  During the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion in Cuba, The USS Houston, an American troop and supply vessel, was damaged by several FAR rockets and Castro himself shooting it from his command vehicle the SU-100, its captain then intentionally beached the ship on the western side of the bay.  You can contact us at twotankersandcat@gmail.com  Thank you for listening and as always Happy Tanking and have a great week!
