Interesting.  I've never heard of anything being developed on the S-Tank chassis.

Thinking family of vehicles including the base S tank, an MRV/ medium tank with a medium calibre turreted gun, a LRV with a turreted auto cannon and ATGW, a heavy ATGW TD, a SPAAG, a SPAAM and depending on capacity maybe even an APC or AIFV.  Basically all covered in the thread to one degree or another but grouped together in an enabling Armoured Cavalry Regiment / Squadron that would beef up a light infantry brigade or battalion into an armoured one.

Iíve always thought after being taken out of service as tanks the S tank should have been rebuilt as anti tank missile carriers with TOW or other systems. Something like the TOW system on the M113. Just Swedish style.

Well Sweden does use the TOW though they refer to it as the RBS-55:



I am tempted to do something with the 105mm main gun replaced with a RBS-17 (aka Hellfire missile):



But with ability to easily reload under armour.
