German Schmalturn on T-34 hull is a good choice IMO.

What if an IFV based on T-34?

BTW: It would be a very confortable vehicle in the rigors of russian winter. 8)

The BTR-70/ZSU-57 looks pretty neat. 8)

The other two? Well, given the exposure to return fire of the gunners, you may as well use a truck but I, too, could still see something like this thrown together in Syria/Lebanon. :smiley:

I love Strv-74 turret. So I decided to upgunit with the guns of swiss, not swedish, afv (I love the coax 20mm Oerlikon). Then I settled this new turret on different bases; one of them was a Strv-74 itself that I equipped with external fuel tanks à la S-tank.

What if Sweden helps Ukraine with some obsolete, but useful, bits that are supplemented by ukranians themselves?

The T-34-76 wouldn't be too far off.  Turret rings were:

Matilda II = 1.37 m/54 inches
T-34-76 = 1.45 m/57.08 inches
T-34-85 = 1.60 m/62.99 inches

A quick measure of my unfinished Matilda shows there's enough space on the top plate, but it's knowing where the bulkheads fall inside the hull . . .
Also, a Matilda was fitted with an A27 turret :-

1) Remove Matilda upper deck turret race.
2) Remove T-34/85 upper deck turret race.
3) Splice 2 into space left by 1
