Response to Out of curiosity, how do you pronounce Russian tank names?

In cyrillic it is roughly translated to SU from the cyrillic CY (although Y is not the exact letter). You can see the letter at the beginning of this film:


So if you read the letters as a Russian would then yes "SU" would be "soo" because C is pronounced as an "S" and Y is pronounced as 'oo". Whether this is standard pronunciation I don't know. Just my meager 2 cents.
