The Stridsvagn 103C is a main battle tank available to Sweden in Wargame: AirLand Battle. Like its predecessor the Strv 103B it has no turret and a small size, allowing them to hide better than other tanks.
The Stridsvagn 103 or Strv 103 ("Stridsvagn" meaning tank), also known unofficially as the S-Tank, was a Swedish post-war main battle tank. It was known for its unconventional turret-less design, with a fixed gun traversed by engaging the tracks and elevated by adjusting the hull suspension.
The S-Tank was developed in the 1950s and was the first main battle tank to use a turbine engine. The result was a very low-profile design with an emphasis on defense and heightened crew protection level. S-Tanks formed a major portion of the Swedish armored forces from the 1960s to part of the 1990s, but have since been removed from service in favour of the Strv 122 a Swedish copy of the Leopard 2.
An upgrade program was started in 1986 to fit all vehicles with improved fire control systems. Also, each S-Tank was fitted with a dozer blade, rather than just one per platoon. A further upgrade in 1987/88 replaced the Rolls-Royce engine with a newer 290 hp (216 kW) Detroit Diesel with additional fuel tanks, and added a new laser rangefinder.
