This was one of the first six Centurion tanks sold to Sweden in 1953. It was a Mark 3, designated Stridsvagn 81 in the Swedish Army. By 1978 it had been upgraded with the addition of a 105mm gun and was now known as Stridsvagn 102. In 1981 the Bofors company was given the task of improving the Swedish Army’s Centurions with new fire-control equipment and a year later some tanks were further improved with a General Dynamics diesel engine and Allison automatic transmission and in 1985 by the fitting of a modern Hydrostrut suspension system. In this form it was now the Stridsvagn 104. The final modification, in 1994, was the fitting of add-on reactive armour to the hull front and turret. (Source: Museum Vehicle Record). It is in running order.
