Weight: 1,5 ton

Crew: 3 men

Top speed: 80 km/h

Armament: 1 9 cm recoilless rifle

  The 9 cm recoilless rifle was the mainstay of the anti-tank capability of the infantry until the early nineties when it was replaced by the Rb 56 BILL. The infantry mounted the rifle in Bandvagn 206. In the armor units a platoon of four terrain-car mounted rifles were part of the armored infantry companies until the middle of the eighties. Now they have been shipped to the Baltic nations as military aid. With modern HEAT rounds they can still knock out APC:s and older tanks.
