It's actual designation is Stridsvagn m/42 or Strv m/42. First entered service with the Swedish army in November 1941, designed by AB Landsverk, manufactured by Volvo. Was armed with a 75 mm m/41 gun and 4 eight mm m/39 machine guns. Had a maxim armor thickness of 55 mm in the front.

4 versions existed:
Strv m/42 TM (Lago II): had two engines and electromagnetic gearbox. Made in 1943-44.
Strv m/42 TH (Lago III): had two engines, each with a hydraulic gearbox. Made in 1944.
Strv m/42 EH (Lago IV): had an engine and hydraulic gearbox. Made in 1944-45.
Strv m/42: TV had two engines, each with a hydraulic gearbox. Made in 1948.

This tank was issued to the following armored regiments:
P 1/Enköping - Gotland stridsvagnskompani.
P 2/Helsingborg.
P 3/Strängnäs.
P 4/Skövde.

They served till 1950 when they were phased out of active service and replaced by the Stridsvagn 81.

Anything I missed?

Stridsvagn 81 meaning the Centurion Tank.

And the m/39 machinegun was a swedish version of the browning .30 cal (same mechanic, different barrel, later changed to NATO standard)
