Good vid, as always.

 

Cotter pins are easy things - bending them is SOP in nearly every application.

 

My only concern here would be in getting at them.

I would guess that the exhaust was choking for the crew. The POL fumes must have been strong as well. The rounded off bolts have to have been a government spec. Any fire fighting equipment?

Great video indeed! Now that you've touched upon early tank development, maybe it'd be interesting to get into the Vickers 6-tonner, if any of those are still around.

For now I'll look forward to the L-60 episode.

It's honestly a pretty nice and interesting design, like Nick said with the stretcher it could also serve as an auxiliary APC now that I think about it; ferrying a couple of soldiers here and there. It might actually be one of the earliest IFVs along with being a tank in one.

 

That said, Swedish tanks really are some of the most unique and fascinating AFVs I've ever seen.

 

And yeah, great vid as always Nick.
