In the western literature on Soviet tanks can come across a mention of a mysterious machine called the IT-122 and IT-130. Index IT (IT) – stands for “Tank Destroyer.” The index has been in a few pre-war Soviet / military experimental development PT-ACS and even medium tank, as well as in post-war rocket tanks.

Under the name IT-122 often appears SU-122-54, whether her name was unknown in the West, or for some other reason. However, it was her photos are present under the same name.

But there are more interesting “tank destroyers”, which is firmly entrenched in the American and European papers and even scientific journals period of “cold war”, and then successfully moved to modern.

This is, for example, IT-130. According to the authors, this ACS is a database of the T-62 with mounted 130 mm anti-tank gun, the general layout of repeating IT-122 (ie SU-122-54). About brand tools assumptions were different, often referred 130mm M-46, which is strange, but apparently, indexes Soviet tank guns caliber 130 mm (for example, M-65) were not known. It is often the next image IT-130.

However, the image was first published in the book «Soviet Assault Guns» in 1983 (by Steve Zaloga) is false, and that the author himself admitted in one of the forums.

The great thing – it is the source of information – enough known Viktor Suvorov, called the report «defector» («defector, deserter”) (in my opinion, as the best definition for it, still speak English expressionless!). In general, Pusha misinformation in Western ears, our valiant defector.

According to him, judging by everything, the description was created and this unit – IT-122 (bottom picture), he referred to the development of IT-122 (SU-122-54, shown in the upper figure):
