After the most recent battle between GMI and HKA, it was realized that nobody actually seems to have any artillery. Or tank destroyers, for that matter. The SPG-57 was created to fill these gaps. A mix between the two, the SPG-57 is a very useful tool on the battlefield. It’s fast and reliable, and it has a good amount of armor all around. It has room for three crew members (and two passengers, if necessary), but it can be used without any crew thanks to the well-protected probe core.

The only problem with the Bishop is that, instead of a mantlet, the gun goes through an open hole. Even though the gun can be stowed and the sliding hatch can be closed to cover the hole, the tank is completely unprotected against surprise chemical and nuclear attacks. Plus, it can’t even use the main gun in a toxic environment. This is due to the fact that the creator could not think of a way to make the mantlet (blame KSP, not me), and the gun couldn’t be mounted outside, as it wouldn’t be possible to safely reload it.
