Swedish tanks were built with Scandinavian precision. They were expensive, high-quality, and produced in limited quantities. It may seem strange that a country that never fought in the 20th century managed to create their own tank building legacy. That is why we’re shining a spotlight on the story of how the most famous Swedish vehicles, from Landsverk to Strv 103, were created.

The Swedish Strv 103 is not some pipedream of a lone genius. It's a mass-produced vehicle. A normal tank. Just without a turret. And with two engines. Also, any crew member can control it, even a radio operator. It can swim... And it can change its height: lift and lower its hull. It was designed to be a defensive fighter. So, it could hardly be used anywhere else but in Scandinavia. So, what kind of vehicle is it? Maybe, it's not a tank at all?

The Stridsvagn 103 (Strv 103), also known as the S-Tank, was a Swedish post-war main battle tank. It was known for its unconventional design: it was turretless with a fixed gun traversed by engaging the tracks and elevated by adjusting the hull suspension. While turretless armoured fighting vehicles are usually classified as assault guns or tank destroyers, despite its unique gun laying process the Strv 103 is considered a tank because its designated combat role matched those of other tanks within contemporary Swedish doctrine. It is the only main battle tank and the only tank of any kind since the World War II era to dispense with a turret. The Strv 103 was designed and manufactured in Sweden. It was developed in the 1950s and was the first main battle tank to use a turbine engine. The result was a very low-profile design with an emphasis on defence and heightened crew protection level. Strv 103s formed a major portion of the Swedish armoured forces from the 1960s to part of the 1990s, but have since been removed from service in favour of the Stridsvagn 122. Stridsvagn 103 (Strv.103), также известный на Западе как «С-танк» (англ. S-tank — «шведский танк») — шведский основной боевой танк 1960-х годов. Рядом специалистов классифицируется не как танк, а как истребитель танков. Имеет уникальную безбашенную компоновку с жёстко закреплённым в корпусе орудием, наведение которого осуществляется поворотом танка и наклоном его корпуса при помощи специальной подвески. Первый в мире танк на котором, кроме дизельного, можно было установить газотурбинный двигатель. Strv.103 был создан в 1956—1961 годах для замены в шведской армии британских средних танков «Центурион». Серийное производство танка осуществлялось с 1966 по 1971 год, всего было выпущено 335 танков этого типа. Strv.103 составляли основу танкового парка Швеции вплоть до 1990-х годов, когда они были заменены современными основными боевыми танками «Леопард-2» и сняты с вооружения.
