I saw this picture of a early T-34 without a road wheel on ebay.de and thought it might be of interest.

Given how nose heavy the SU-85 had to have been, I wonder how far they were able to get?

Makes you wonder why they didn't pull a wheel from the center position and put it up front unless there was a problem with the suspension at that position and not just a bad missing wheel.

I am assuming the SU-85 lost that wheel to a mine, and so the damage prevented a simple replacement.
