The Strv Leo is an awful tier VII medium tank.

None of the availible guns have good enough standard penetration to adequately damage its opponents.

 

The top 105mm gun has a 9.29s reload with a rammer, vents, and BIA. This severely hampers its performance, as well as a terrible 155mm of penetration.

 

My suggestion is that it receives one of the following guns:

Gun Suggested Nominal Reload DPM (w/ nominal reload)
9cm kan m/F 7.55 seconds 1907
9cm Bofors L/53 6.95 seconds 2071

 

The basic gun characterisitics are as follows

Gun Damage per Shot Penetration
9cm kan m/F 240 210
9cm Bofors L/53 240 180

 

Having the ability to equip either of these guns would make it very suitable for its tier. Even 180 pen with standard ammunition would be a VAST improvement over the 75mm or 105mm guns that it can mount currently.

Tier 7 meds generally don't get good guns. Unfortunately. If they have any alpha then they have terrible handling. If they fire fast, the pen is sketchy. I like ur idea, but they all would need help.

Mounting up the 9cm Bofors would make it play very similar to the T20, which isn't a bad thing at all. That's the better option, as the 9cm kan m/f would not be suitable for a tier 7 medium.

I loved my Leo. Thinking about buying it back eventually. Averaged 1650 damage in it and got a 60% winrate. Extremely fun vehicle, quick, good gun depression and 300 alpha. All at tier 7. Nice.

I'm not complaining about the alpha, it's pretty good for tier VII medium. But it only seems to fit one playstyle: drive fast, shoot a big alpha, then run away. It can't really be a medium/ long range sniper or support unit. Getting put in a tier VIII or IX match, you may not be able to pen anything past 250m. You have to either flank (which can rarely be done safely) or wait until the enemy is close enough.

Good penetration, great reload, fast shells, great accuracy, why wouldn't the 9cm m/F be a good gun?

Just look at the stats of that weapon... I didn't say it would be good, I said it wouldn't be suitable for a tier  7 medium, since it'd be as good or better than most all of the tier 8 mediums weapons. 210 pen and 240 damage with okayish DPM and what would likely be very good accuracy. That'd be overpowered on a tier 7 medium.

 

The T20 has it right with it's 90mm. Making the Leo somewhat similar would work well, with the 9cm Bofors stats you originally posted.
