I have my doubts about grinding it due their pretty bad/slow guns. And as rest of abilities pretty much mix of 50B and T57 anyway.

Just that the Kranvagn has an impenetrable turret like is7 and hilarious gun depression as in op as F

It would be nice if the text was fact-checked before published.

 

Block Quote

 Regardless of how it looked on paper, this very original turret design would eventually cause the shutdown of the “heavy” project in 1954.

 

The cost for the rest of the development could no longer be justified when the 240 Centurion (mk. III and mk. V) suddenly became available at a good price due to the large trade deficit United Kingdom suffered towards Sweden. The final nail in the coffin for the EMIL-project was the 110 Centurion mk. X purchased in 1958.

Then the concept was resurrected as KRV when studies of the next generation tanks to replace the Centurion started. However, the turret had nothing to do with the cancellation. In fact it was the gun, or more specific, the ammunition for the gun, that turned out to require so much development that the budget frame was expected to be exceeded to such an extent the whole gun-concept was scrapped, and without the superior gun, the S-tank (which would become strv 103) looked more promising and the Emil/KRV was abandoned for good.

 

...but the KRV-hull became the basis for the SPG-prototype Artilllerikanonvagn (Akv) 151 (which in turn would serve as model for the iconic Bandkanon 1), as well as being used as test rig during the development of the 103.
