Wargaming, the makers of the popular World of Tanks game, have created a nice overview of tank use and design in Sweden. Enjoy.

Nice documentary but a small correction, we haven't been to war since 1814 so it is actually more than 200 years and not 100 years as they say in the documentary.
Strangely they describe the IKV 91 but forget to include CV 9040.

On note, one example of the surviving LK II is under restoration to full driving condition. The original plan was to have it finished in spring 2016, in time for the centenary, but as with all complex projects things have been delayed. A lot have been done and Volvo have contributed with a new engine, as an example. You could follow the restoration on this blog: http://blog.arsenalen.se/

Interesting to know the influences from Hungarian and Czech designs. Nice documentary.

They were a network sponsor long ago. No I just thought this would be of some interest to you guys when I saw it.

And I didn't want to put "Video by Jim Starkweather" on this so I made a dummy account for them. So yeah don't PM them.

Cheers,
Jim
