The Strv 101 has the same armour layout as the Centurion Mk 10. Weakpoints are the same, that includes the lower frontal plate and some areas on the turret. The armour can bounce and stop some shells, but shouldn't be relied upon, particularly against HEATFS and APDS shells. The tank also comes with 6 mm thick sideskirts which can occasionally prematurely detonate incoming HEAT shells. The armour plate above the engine is very thin, and can be penetrated by most aircraft cannons and some machine guns.

Armour type:

  • Rolled homogeneous armour (Hull)
  • Cast homogeneous armour (Turret)

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • High-penetrating gun with access to APDS and HESH shots
  • Good gun depression and elevation angles (-10/+20), giving it great terrain adaptation
  • Upper glacis and gun mantlet can resist most full-calibre AP shells (eg. T-44-100)
  • Good mobility options with neutral steering and sufficient reverse speed
  • Reasonably fast reload speed
  • Smoke grenades can cover up the player when there is danger

Cons:

  • Lower glacis is still a prominent weak spot
  • Mediocre top speed and acceleration
  • No access to HEAT-FS, unlike other nations' L7 guns
  • Engine armour is weak from the top, can be damaged aircraft guns
  • Small internal compartment (only 4 crew members) with ammunition scattered all over
  • Very slow vertical targeting speed
  • Armour becomes weak in an uptier against early APFSDS and HEATFS (eg. T-69 IIG, T-55AM)

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
