Today I thought we should take a look at one of the branches that I have never covered in depth before. The light/medium tank line is the Swedish counterpart of the French medium tank line. At tiers 2-8 the line consists of light tanks which are exchanged for fast medium’s at 9-10. Unlike their French counterparts Swedish light tanks focus on a mix of conventional guns excellent gun depression and mediocre mobility. In general, I would expect these vehicles to play much like the American light tanks.瑞典的轻坦和中坦和法国坦克的外形很像，甚至就是法国坦克的分支，唯一的区别就是瑞典坦克没有使用弹夹炮，用的是一门传统的炮。
Like with my article on Swedish turreted TD’s we are unlikely to see this branch in the near future. With that said this branch has stronger candidates and practically all research for this branch has already been done. However, I suspect we won’t see it anytime soon due to the lack of well-known vehicles. Anyway, lets get to it.展示还没瑞典TD的计划，那将会使一条很强的科技线。
The L-120 was a light tankette type vehicle first constructed in 1937. A total of three prototypes were built, 2 of which participated in Swedish army trials. Although the L-120 lost the trials to the Czech TNH-IV tankette it still received interest from Poland and Norway. After the trials, one of the partially completed prototypes were sold to Norway where it became known as Rikstanken. The L-120 weighed in at only 5,1 tonnes and had armour between 5 and 10mm thick. It’s armament consisted of either 2 machineguns or a 20mm autocannon, although plans were made to fit a 37mm gun.
The L-120 is probably the most traditional light tank in the whole line. With a power to weight ratio of over 20hp/t and the ability to mount either a 37mm or a 20mm gun, the L-120 should be a pretty solid vehicle. The lack of armour, however, makes it very vulnerable, and comparable to vehicles like the Pz 1.

In the fall of 1930 the Swedish army placed an order for three prototypes tanks from AB Landsverk. What resulted 4 years later was one of the most modern tanks of its time the Strv m/31. This vehicle was heavily based on German ideas on tank design and was one of the first to make use of sloped welded armour. Other innovations included the use of prisms instead of viewports and the addition of a 2-way radio. Only three Strv m/31 were built due to a lack of funding and extensive use of foreign components in its construction. The Strv m/31 would be succeeded by the L-60 series of light tanks.
One of the best-looking tanks in this line in my opinion. The Strv m/31 should be a decent but unremarkable tier 3 light tank. It’s Mobility, armour and firepower are all good enough for its tier and offers something different compared to the Strv m/40k in the main line.
