Reality check: Swedish tanks

Author: sp15

This short article will be purely dedicated to comparing the in-game Swedish tanks with reality, in essence I will be expanding upon my previous article “The lies about the Swedish heavies” where I went trough the faults of the top tiers in the heavy tank line. Going by the logic that its better to show you rather than tell you I will simply provide the relevant data below, if you want a more in debt look at these tanks you can check out my last article here.

Just as a note of interest this tank actually has its historical side armor unlike the other heavies.

There are faulty engines for the TD’s as well like the Ford 391 on the ikv 103 which is 175hp in the game but 199hp in real life but most of the engine problems in the TD branch came from removed engines rather than from unhistorical ones. But while we are on the topic of the “TD” branch I would like to recommend this article by Renhanxue on why the Strv 103 was not a tank destroyer: http://tanks.mod16.org/2016/08/19/strid … destroyer/
