The Strv M/31 light tank was produced by Sweden’s’ first tank factory, the AB Landsverk Company factory at Landskrona.
It had many features that were very advanced for its time.
The Strv M/31 had a welded two-man turret and welded hull. It also had a two-way radio communication and high performance sighing, optical and vision devices.
A German Bussing V6 gasoline engine powered the Strv M/31.
The Strv M/31 light tank weighed over 11 tons and had a crew of four men.
Its main armament was a rapid-fire high-velocity 1.46 inch (37mm) gun that was housed in the turret along with a coaxial machine gun.
Another machine gun was operated by the driver.
