Dear tankers

 

It seems that Sweden have a lot of "german" tanks tested to desing they own tanks. Here is a short history about our Swedish panther, marder and king tiger. I think is good to have "Swedish panther and kin tiger as prem tanks like it done with the polish "pudel".

 

"A Swedish delegation was sent to France in 1946, with the purpose to investigate and commission German WW2 AFVs. A visit took place in Versailles where a depot with Panther tanks was inspected. Most of them were meant to be scrapped, while others had been sold. The Swedish delegation was offered to choose between three Panther tanks. The French State reported that they were willing to give away the Panther, and so the one in best condition was chosen. (This Pz.Bef.Wg. Panther Ausf. A was then shipped to Sweden and tested until 1961 when it was given to the Panzermuseum Munster in Germany, where it is on display today). In the same time as the inspection of the Panther tank was made, selected Swedish officers followed a group of French officers to Normandy on October 4th 1946, looking for a Tiger. They traveled through Nantes, Evreux and Lisieur to the Vimontiere area. A totally burnt out King Tiger (of sPz.Abt. 503, 1. Kompanie) was found, but since Sweden wanted to perform AT-mine and firing trials upon it, this Tiger was overlooked. The French promised to continue the search for a suitable vehicle, not costing Sweden a dime. By the end of August of 1947, the military attaché in Paris claimed that a Tiger II has been found in good condition (no damage from fire). It was located in Gien, south of Paris."

 

 

 

"Just after the end of the war, KAF began studies of upgunning the tanks from the early 1940s. The 37mm Bofors gun used were obsolete, and interim measures were taken to test new armaments. Strv m/40 chassis were built as Pvkv IVA and Pvkv IVB with 57mm and 75mm guns. Strv m/41 SII chassis #80099 were armed with a 75mm m/36 L/56,5 AA-gun, and the other with a 57mm m/43 AT-gun. The 75mm gun vehicle were designated ‘Pansarvärnskanonvagn II – Pvkv II’, and the other ‘Pvkv III’. None of the versions were found suitable and the projects were dropped. Shortly thereafter, the ‘Pvkv m/43′ tank destroyer were improved instead."
