Memo regarding the procurement status of SPG, SPAAG and tanks
Original title: PM ang. akv, lvkv och strv enligt tygmaterielplan 1958/66
A memo from the Vehicle Bureau dated 1958-05-02, discussing the procurement status of current SPG’s, SPAAG’s and tanks (well, one of each, really). The SPG (akv 151) is built on a Krv chassis but now it seems like the Krv project will be cancelled, which is problematic. The Krv project itself is likely to get cancelled because of problems with the ammunition; options for keeping it alive is simply purchasing a new gun plus ammunition for it off-the-shelf abroad. There are two SPAAG alternatives; one is to purchase a “Grantham” SPAAG off-the-shelf, the other is doing something with the indigenous lvkv fm/49 (aka. lvkv 42).
