The Swedish S-Tank is a unique design in that it does not have a turret. The tank is similar to the Tank Destroyers of WW2. The advantages of this tank is that it has a much lower profile and it is less vunerable. The disadvantage is the main gun has only a limited horizontal traversal, the entire tank has to be turned.

The tank has many advantages on the defensve since it can be easily placed in a hull down position.

An interesting design.
