Live fire trials against Strv 103 (1971)

In 1971 live fire trials were carried out against the engine hatches of the Strv 103 with the goal of determining the critical velocity where the incoming projectile will penetrate the armor 50% of the time. The tests were carried out using a 105 mm L/62 barrel using the Slpprj m/66 round (Swedish designation for the British L52A1 APDS).
