i want to point out that all the Akv´s have autoloaders.

The 1949 and 1953 have 11 round magazines and the Akv 151, Akv 1960 and Bkan 1A all have 14 round magazines
 

Unless there's a way to implement their autoloaders without making them unbalanced, I would avoid adding them.

i thought id compare the landsverk Pbv 302 drawings we found with what Landskrona museum claims to be the Landsverk Pbv 302 from 1965

Spoiler

The simmilarities are the sloping hull sides, the centrally mounted cannon and the front hatch for the transmission

No, I didn't see that. Where was that asked for and which armor schematic are they talking about exactly? The one from this Wednesday that says "strv A 1961"?

 

edit: never mind I found it. I'll re-order that volume tomorrow.

A friend of mine made a fictional Swedish tank with a enlarged Strv M/42 turret with a new gun on a KRV hull, what do you guys think? :tongue:

Yes, but not too much of interest, at least not for World of Tanks. I've updated the Google Drive.

Yep, not a lot though. Some penetration data, S-tank concept art, a few reports on what's going on in the outside world. Only really had time to go through one volume today. I'll make sure I have a lot of time on Saturday so I can get through the rest of 1962 and most of 1963 by then.

 

 Google Drive is syncing now.

A friend of mine have been bugging me about heavy tanks during ww2 for tier 5-8. You guys have any indication they even had plans for something that might be called a heavy tank?

No not really. Before world war two sweden had a requirement that a no heavier than 12 tonnes so that it could use existing swedish infrastructure so that their mobility would not be limited.

If i remember correctly it was not untill 1941 that the limit was raised to 20 tonnes when work began on the Strv m/42 (which has both been called a heavy and a medium tank). And after world war two Sweden initially wanted a 25-30 tonne tank which was then rejected as too heavy which led to the 20 tonne Lansen which was later developed into a 25 tonne tank anyhow. After that it was rejected since such a light vehicle would be no match for modern medium and heavy tanks. So instead the 28 tonne Krv project started in 1951 as a modern swedish medium tank. it wasnt untill 1953 that sweden got something they could call a heavy tank and that was the centurion which was refered to as a heavy and was heavuer and slower than the krv was ever planned to be.

 

Short version no there are no options for tier 4-6 heavy tanks as sweden didnt have the infrastructure to support such vehicles. a tier 7 heavy might be possible but would require a liberal use of the info that created the Krv in 1951. The only way to find more swedish heavies would be if there were private projects by Bofors or Landsverk but that seems unlikely.

So i made a picture depicting the Motorlavett Strv m/42 which was basicly a Pvkv m/43 with a rear mounted superstructure and a 105mm gun

I really like it, i cant wait to try out all the stuff around Strv M/42 hull :tongue:

Hmm, i was talking with a friend a bit and since WoT class most stuff after how the nation class them, wouldnt Strv M/42 be a heavy tank?

Since we did call them heavy tanks and put them in heavy tank companies?
