This photo is generally known I think but it doesn’t hurt to remind :) The general belief is that Swedish tanks (well, apart from the Toldi) were never really used in battle. That is – for the most part – true, but as usual, there are exceptions. Around two dozen of the Landsverk L-60 light…   [ далее ]

This is the Polish TKS-D tankette, the heaviest of the TKS series.
