World of Tanks Kranvagn - 3 Kills 13,3K Damage
Medals received: Confederate, High Caliber
The Kranvagn is a Swedish tier 10 heavy tank.
A project for a new vehicle for the Swedish army that started in 1949. For confidentiality purposes, the vehicle was given an unusual name, KRV, which stands for self-propelled crane (in Swedish). The project was based on the French AMX 50. A lightweight chassis was built and tested; in addition, a dummy with a turret was produced. A prototype was never built.
The final advancement of the Swedish turreted tank line. Shared with its predecessors; thanks to the size, weight and power to weight ratio, it's considered by many to be more of a medium tank rather than a heavy tank. The aforementioned size together with a tough frontal turret and a solid gun depression plus a decent mobility means that the Kranvagn can be extremely effective in a hulldown spot. However, be careful about your position. Exposing your hull will almost always result in a penetration, since it isn't as reliable as the turret front. Also mind that, when gun depression is used, the turret rear and commander's hatch is exposed which is a weak spot. You can counter this by pointing the gun upwards.
The Kranvagn marks the end of its Swedish heavy line.
