By the beginning of the Great Patriotic War Red Army practically had no self-propelled mounts (SP), with little exception of SU-5, SU-12 and GAZ-TK that had been lost during the first weeks of war. The necessity in having SP mounts for infantry and tank support had been obvious ever since beginning of war. In a hurrying rush such SP mounts had been developed as ZIS-30, SU-T-26 and some others. Still, produced in the number of dozens they could have played some crucial part in autumn-winter of 1941 fighting. The issue for development of the SP mounts had risen again only in 1942. The new SP mounts had been created and commissioned into service: SU-76 (SU-12), SU-122; in 1943-44 - SU-761, SU-76M, SU-85,SU-85M, SU-100, ISU-122, ISU-152, SU-152. Besides of that, from the USA by lend-lease in 1943-44 came into service SP mounts such as T-48, M10, M15 and M17 that had been actively used in fighting at the closing stage of war.
SP mounts had been put into separate regiments, brigades and divisions. Overall in 1942-45 there had been formed 119 light 81 medium and 56 heavy SP-artillery regiments, 70 divisions and 12 brigades.
Red Army's SP-artillery units had been actively used in combat, providing necessary support to infantry and tanks in all kinds of war action.
