Historical Reference

A variant of the heavy tank developed for the Swedish army under the EMIL project in the 1950s. Design solutions used for the French AMX 13 tank influenced the project, which is obvious from the design of the turret. In 1951, a draft design was prepared, but development was discontinued in favor of later versions.
