Usage in battles

The Strv 105 is an upgraded variant of the Strv 104, based off the Centurion Mk 10. With new upgrades such as thermal imaging and the m/90C APFSDS round (Swedish designation for the Israeli M426 105 mm APFSDS), it can handle most targets it faces including some later MBTs such as the Leopard 2A4, M1 Abrams, and the T-72s and T-80s.

It is best to snipe from a position where the enemy can't see you, as the m/90c round has enough penetration over range to penetrate enemies from a distance, and the armour isn't really strong against other opponents. While it has an upgraded engine, the Strv 105 still is a bit sluggish compared to NATO counterparts and vehicles such as the XM-803 or Leopard 1A5 can beat you in mobility terms. It's best to try to stay cover to cover when moving. Defeating late Cold War-era MBTs in uptiers can be done but thanks to their mobility and gun handling control being more advanced, they will often have a better reaction time than you.

Enemies worth noting:
  • T-72B, T-72B (1989) - These Soviet MBTs have their armour increased on the frontal hull and with the 1989 variant featuring CONTACT-5 ERA, it will be impossible to kill them from the front except for a few weak spots. It's best to aim for the lower front plate and the driver port.
  • Challenger Mk.2/Challenger Mk.3 - The turret of these British tanks will be nearly impossible to penetrate at range, due to how the composite plates are angled. The lower hull can be penetrated though, especially around the driver port or the lower front plate.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Access to the m/90c APFSDS shell (aka 105 mm DM63/M426) with good penetration
  • Has access to 2nd generation thermals for the gunner
  • Improved engine
  • ERA stops most HEATFS
  • Stock APFSDS shell
  • NVDs are a Tier II modification
  • Good gun depression (-10°)
  • Has no hull ammo storage next to the driver unlike the preceding Strv 104

Cons:

  • Mobility is subpar compared to other MBTs
  • Weak armour against most APDS/APFSDS, even from Soviet APHE shells
  • Late Cold War-era vehicles may be difficult to deal with in uptiers
  • Lower front plate has no additional protection

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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.
