Hello,

Wondering when (or if!) we will be getting the second Swedish TD line. I remember last year before the Swedish lines were released, that Wargaming stated(in a promotional video for the Strv 103s) they have enough material to make at least TWO TD lines, TWO medium tank lines, a SPG line and also the mixed line(not sure if they included that as a medium line or not).

So wondering when that will occur...

Anyways, if I may, I have a suggestion for the top-tier(X), the Infanterikanonvagn 91, or Ikv 91,

The IKV 91 was a Swedish Tank destroyer, with somewhat of a light-tank-esque design. It had a high power-to-weight ratio of 20.2, and had very low ground pressure(the equivalent of really good terrain resistance in WoT). It had a top speed of 70 km on-road and over flat terrain, and 65 km over uneven/bumpy terrain. It packed a 90 mm gun with an ammunition count of 59(could play similar to the E50's 8.8 cm gun). Its armor was horrible though, with up to 12 at the sides, and up to 20 at the front. Anyways, I think this would be a very interesting vehicle in-game, and also has some interesting tanks that could lead up to it.

Anyways, here are my proposed stats...

Anyways, let me know what you all think! As always, please be constructive and helpful with you feedback, thanks!

This was supposed to be the T8/9 of a second TD line.

302 pen with a 90mm gun? Try 260-280 for balance purposes.

​Hmm, seems like it would be more viable and interesting option to have at tier 10. IMHO...

​Well, the reason I went with 302 is it would most likely be shooting from long distances, due to trying to be as far away from everything as it can get, due to its 10 mm of armor...

Therefore, imho, it would need higher penetration. But yes, 302 does seem high for a 90 mm. The logic aforesaid is why I chose that number...

The proposed Swedish tech tree had the Ikv 91 at T8 and T9 with the Ikv 120 at T10.

Except reallistically due to the cramped corridoor campfests WG creates with the maps long range engagements aren't something you will see too often.
