Supertest: Bofors Tornvagn Tier VIII Swedish Premium Heavy Tank

2 min read

The Tier VIII Swedish Bofors Tornvagn heavy tank has been sent to the closed Supertest stage. The vehicle has a 120mm gun with 400 damage per shot. The standard APCR shell penetrates 248mm, while the special APCR shell penetrates 297mm. The shell velocity is comfortable, but it is worth remembering that APCR shells lose their penetration rate a little more with distance than AP shells. The gun has an accuracy of 0.45, an aiming time of 2s, and a reloading speed of 14s.

The turret has an unusual design. The nominal armour thickness reaches 280mm in the turret and 260mm in the hull. The gun depression elevation angles are impressive at -10/20 deg. The vehicle has 1,600HP. Its top speed is 32km/h and the power-to-weight ratio is 11.6h.p./t.

The Bofors Tornvagn is a tank that will perform well among terrain irregularities thanks to its good gun elevation/depression angles, and its rather powerful gun should help deal with any enemy. However, the relatively slow turret and hull traverse speed can make it an easy target for manoeuvrable vehicles, so you should stick with your allies.

All characteristics are with a crew trained to 100% and subject to change before the final release.

    1. There are two drawings posted by SP15, can’t remember where.

    2. Fair enough, Looks very similar to the Hagglund design for a turreted UDES 03 (https://i.imgur.com/MbgcSm1.jpeg) And on a number of accounts Bofors and Hagglund had similar designs.

      If it is a design for the UDES 03 project I then question why it’s a heavily armoured HT and not a turreted TD or just lower then gun caliber to be the first actual Swedish tier 8 prem MT
