Wargaming also says the following:
“Today the Strv/m42 is going to the supertest as a Tier V Swedish Medium tank. We are exploring different possible roles for this vehicle. For today’s test we will check it as a tank with good dynamics and excellent elevation angles, but weak armor. We will also be testing possible top configuration for the vehicle. Game role will be defined by the results of several tests.”

God damn that’s one ugly beastie.
Looks kind of like a KV-5 sort of…
Kinda reminds me of the Comet.
Comet is a sexy tank.. this really is not.. i see what you mean.. the only thing this has in common with the Comet is the placement of the turret.. i think the Comet is about the same.. bit forward..
The general shape of the tank reminds me of the Comet.
