Swedish tanks because why not
other nations tanks welcome aswell
The tank is the Strv 74, basically a conversion of a Swedish ww2 tank design with a new turret and gun
Highly doubt anyone here have seen this picture before. Very related; a couple of CV90 of Swedish origin and a few Leopard 2 of (German produced)
It's from about 6 months ago in Norway
There is also two pictures of the first prototype
Note the raised turret rear which was changed on production vehicles
A Strv m/42 (what was rebuilt to Strv 74) and if you are wondeing the explosion is simply for the photo to look cool not an actal one
UDES 03 prototype for what essentially was to be a smaller S-tank
another UDES 03 picture
note the spaced armor panels on the hull sides
Yup thats a Strv m/31 three were built by Landsverk for the Swedish army in 1934-35 and it was probably the most modern tank in the world at that time
Here is a original armour sheme for it

Pictures of Pvkv IV, III and II tank destroyer prototypes circa 1951
experimental artillery tracktor conversion circa 1941
well the thread isnt dead and im back so have some more tanks
Quite a impressive SPG at that, the Bkan 1a had a mecanical rate of fire of 20 rounds per minute with a 14 round magazine that could be reloaded in 2 minutes.
Id say that its probably the most impressive SPG put into service during the 60s
Then there are tons of drawings of various SPAAG and tank projects from the 30s like this

Thank you anon. I really enjoy this thread.
Incomplete Strv 103 prototype testing dozer blade
Basically the same as the panzer 38t but with a swedish engine and gun, armor was a bit different aswell depending on the version
This is during testing to determine the mobility in swedish terrain during 1943 btw
various photos from trials with dozer blade on Strv 102 and with Pbv 302 prototype
You got something about Pbv 302?
Swedish Landsverk Anti II SPAAG in Finnish service during WW2.
I think that was all i had for the Pbv 302 so have a Pbv 301 instead
