The Strv Fm-21 was originally the German LK II light tank which was too late and likely no LK IIs were completed by Nov 1918. The Swedes acquired 10 LK IIs in 1921 as unassembled machines. Another country acquired unassembled 14 LK IIs - Hungary. These were hidden from the Allied Control Commission until the late 1920s, assembled, and served into the 1930s with the Royal Hungarian Army. As far as I can tell the Hungarian machines were very similar to the Swedish ones. Gives you another option for the model along with the fantasy German LK II in a late war "Buntfarben" (irregular areas of ochre, green and brown delineated by black lines) camouflage scheme.

The attached image are Hungarian LK IIs with (I think) Fiat 3000s.

Yes it is. I have collected a lot of photos on this topic. At the German LK-II, the rear doors opened to the left side. And the STRV is on the right side.

I wonder why they would swap the hinges over? Perhaps it's one of those obscure things that armies standardise.

It will be nice to have a large scale model Strv (or LK II).

Regards,

Charlie
