I would really like to see the swedish line split at Leo, adding new tier 8-10 mediums.

Currently the line leads to heavies only.

Emil 2 is pretty dissapointing to me so far and I dont hear the best comments about the Krav, which is curious considering the line is not that old and when released the Krav was "sponsored" as being too good.

Fair enough the front of the turret holds when cresting ridges (untill they push "2" button), maneuvarability is pretty horrible, aiming time and bloom bad, intra clip reload slow and full reload of clip is long.

Thnx all

While yes, I really would like high tier Swedish meds, the issue is that Sweden decided to buy tanks from other European Nations. First the Centurions then later Leopards. Both of those tanks are already in the game.

Indeed. They could give them a gimmick like an autoreloader, I mean I look at the tier 9 Italian and it looks a lot like a Leopard.

Contrary to popular belief, there were unique designs that could be used as tier 8-10 Swedish MTs. Mostly blueprint designs, but it's not like that matters at all these days.

 

However, I don't think that they are coming anytime soon.

Emil2 is probably the best tank in that line. The Kranvagn was kinda OP when it was intially tested (mind that was back in 2016, so before the invasion of superheavy armor) and nerfed a bit too much for release.

Gun-handling and mobility are a bit worse than the 50 120, but for that you get a very strong turret (even against most premium ammo) and 3° more gun depression. It's a very solid tank overall.

Well, despite what OP said, i think both Emil II and Kranvagn are preety good (especially the tier 9 due to the MM). When hull down the turret on both is inpenetrable, only JgPzE100 can hope to pen armor thicker than 400mm and above.  

The other line gives you the Strv103B which has the second highest DPM in the game after Badger, plus insane cammo and gun handling. However this tank became frustrating to play since quite often you are matched against a 268 v4.

Regarding the swedish mediums, check this post :

Unfortunately, as stated above, Strv81 is Centurion I, and from the pics that i found Strv101 looks like Centurion 7.

The Emil II has been a disappointment for me also, the load time is to long and engine is weak. You just cant get around quick enough to use its assets. The Emil was a better tank for me.

Not really. Besides, between a wise [edited] and a dumb [edited], I much rather be the former.
