Let's see : Better acuracy, better RoF for the HMG, better optics (I think), less fuel consumption, and AP rounds instead of HEAT (which is a big advantage). In some extreme cases, I think it can even be slightly better than a T-34 or a T-55, but the lack of versatility comdemns the ASU.
t-34/t-55 do fit in the same roll as ASU85, but one thing that is an advantage of ASU85 over the tanks is the usage of slots. maybe some of you need all their tank slots for other tanks (for example T-64, T-72, T-80 because they have heavy tanks, T-62 for their cheap long range ATGM and BMP685 for fast flanking) and you still have slots in vehicle section. I know, that it is not a very common deck, but it is possible ...
BTW: on PACT side I don´t use much vehicle slots (no good autocannons, no need for inf-carrier without inf, ...)

SU-122 is only HEAT and that is a much bigger difference then 1 point in HE. ASU85 has one point more accuracy. I see ASU85 fielded in game, but I don´t see the SU-122.

Learn what unit size means for ambushes and for getting hit. Learn about what accuracy means in the game. Learn what crap 3 AP HEAT is against the most used NATO-Tanks. Then think about your last sentence.
