About the S-Tank - Stridsvagn 103 Main Battle Tank:
Designed and manufactured in Sweden during the Cold War, the Stridsvagn 103 or S-Tank was the first tank of its kind to use a turbine engine, which led to its unique low profile design. The purpose of the design was for the S-Tank to act as a defensive weapon, fortifying itself and its crew in a well protected area and then using the tank’s suspension to adjust the position of the gun. The tank was armed with a fixed Bofors 105mm L/62 and featured no turret, leaving the elevation and rotation of the gun to the tank’s revolutionary suspension system which could reach an elevation/depression of 22 degrees, better than most Cold War era tanks. Adding to its versatility, the S-Tank was also completely amphibious and could “swim” after less than 30 minutes of preparation.
