The ASU-85 in the garage of 2.0.

History

The ASU-85 is a soviet-designed airborne self-propelled gun of the Cold War Era. From 1959, it replaced the open-topped ASU-57 in service but was in its turn replaced by the BMD-1 from 1969. The Soviet Airborne Forces used the ASU-85 in airborne operations. Its primary role was light infantry support or assault, with limited anti-tank capability. Each Airborne Division had one assault gun battalion with thirty-one ASU-85s, and the Polish had an equal number of them as well. During the Soviet-Afghanistan War, the ASU-85 was used in combat by the Soviet Airborne troops. In early 2016, Vietnam expressed interest in an upgrade package for the ASU-85 that includes more powerful powerpack that increases the road speed. Former operators of the ASU-85 are East Germany, Poland, and the Soviet Union. It is still currently operated by Vietnam.

In-game

The ASU-85 is a very effective vehicle on the battlefield if used properlu. It lacks a turret but has a great gun, it performs the best in small maps. The high DPM can take out enemies quickly, especially when the vehicle is top-tier and its medium armor protection protects it from incoming fire though it is advised to engage opponents at medium ranges to not risk a flank. When playing in larger maps, it is recommended to undertake sniping positions to engage vehicles at far ranges allowing it to dodge enemy fire and not risk beinh flanked.
