Today’s the day for a new challenger to enter the Supertest fray: the Strv K, a Swedish Tier IX heavy.

With a British Centurion turret attached to a Swedish Kranvagn hull, it’s very much a hybrid vehicle. The Strv K is outfitted with a modified 105-mm L7 gun, capable of dealing an average of 390 damage points with a single shot. The standard APCR round can go through 249 mm of enemy armor, and the special APCR round can penetrate 298 mm. The gun’s accuracy (0.35) and its aiming time (1.8 seconds) is rather noteworthy too. The Strv K takes 10.6 seconds to reload and has a decent view range of 400 m.


What isn’t decent for a heavy, it’s the new hero’s hull protection: the Strv K has only 90 mm of armor at the front so be careful what you expose to an enemy. The turret is way sturdier, with up to 254 mm of armor; together with a gun depression of –10 degrees, this hints at a certain playstyle. The HP pool of the Strv K is neither great nor terrible (1,850 points) but its specific power (14.9 hp per tonne) and top speed (40 km/h) are both close to the ‘great’ part of the spectrum.

 

The dynamics of the Strv K allow it to occupy great firing positions early (ideally those covering its softer areas). The turret armor and the gun depression make it possible for the Swede to excel at terrain-based play—with stable damage output thanks to its reliable gun

This could have been the part of a non-pneumatic suspension medium line...

Only 5 crew members. Should've given it at least 10 to fit the line better.

So cent 7/1, slower, with better hull armor.
