Picture Of The Week - No 1 - Swedish S Tank

I've decided to introduce a new feature to my blog, a 'Picture Of The Week'. This first one is of a Swedish S Tank I photographed at the UK Defence Acedemy at Shriveham. The S-Tank is one of my all-time favourite vehicles. Back in the 1980s I used to do lots of Modern Micro-Tank (1/300th) gaming. I had several armies I used to use, but favourite was my Swedish army (which I still have incidentally). I just think this is such a brilliant vehicle.

Looking round the vehicle it is larger, certainly wider than I had expected. The thing that surprised me however was how thin the armour was on the hull glacis plate (approximately 27mm) and this is because, as you can see they are in fact the engine access panels.
