Strv m/37 or as it was affectionally known, "the chzech" was the first tank that equipped tank companies on Gotland in 1942. It was already totally obsolete but since the threat to Gotland mainly consisted of air assault or amphibious landings with no armored vehicles the tank could still make its precense felt. They were purchased from Chzechoslovakia in 1937 and a total of 48 tanks were bought. One vehicle remains in the brigade inventory as a museumtank. It is is perfect working order and participates in the yearly show for the conscripts relatives.
