World of Tanks S-51 – 3 Kills 6,7K Damage
Medals received: High Caliber
The S-51 is a Soviet tier 7 self-propelled gun.
Designed and built on the chassis of the KV-1S. The development of a prototype started in January 1944. The 203-mm B-4 howitzer was mounted on the restored hull of a KV-1S. From March 1944 through to the beginning of April, the vehicle underwent trials. Despite successful trials, the S-51 never entered mass production.
Often nicknamed by the players as „The Unicorn“ for the impressive long barrel gun it holds when aiming upwards, out of the box, it has the SU-14-1’s upgraded gun. It’s rather slow when you first get it, and performance will be sluggish, but once upgraded, its mobility kicks in. Most players agree that the S-51 is superior to the SU-14-1 for these reasons: its mobility (especially when relocating to avoid becoming a counter-battery target), its agility in running from danger, and faster traverse speeds in switching between targets. It also has a smaller profile than the SU-14, which helps it with camouflage.
S-51 starts with 152 mm BR-2 Howitzer, which considering its repositioning in 8.6, makes it comparable to the old SU-8. However, the second gun, the 203 mm B-4 is the cannon that your enemies will fear you for. It gives the S-51 the ability to deal more alpha damage than any other Tier 7 SPG, and even deal one-shots to Tier 8 heavy tanks. On the downside, it has a very slow reload time and it is rather inaccurate. Its large splash radius will nonetheless ensure that your opponent receives at least some kind of damage. The 203 mm B-4 canon can only carry 12 shells, which in most cases is enough thanks to the low rate of fire. It can also fire AP shells, which some people may find handy in close quarters combat for their high damage potential and good penetration.
The S-51 leads to the SU-14-2.
