Supertest: Strv m/40L

Tier III regular Swedish light tank.

By 1940, the lack of tanks in the Swedish army became apparent. One solution to the problem was the modernization of L-60 tank. The first 100 modernized machines recieved a new automatic transmission and other improvements. Modernization was carried out by AB Landsverk, so these tanks entered service under the designation Strv m / 40L. Later on the tanks produced in the factory in Karlstad began to have more powerful engines installed and an enhanced suspension. These machines were designated Strv m / 40K.
