Off-road tractor w/42 – Volvo TVC
As early as 1973, Volvo began the development of a heavy off-road truck to be able to pull cannons and the result was “TerrängVagn B” (TVB) which was manufactured in 146 copies. However, the TVB was only rear-wheel drive (6×4). As a complement to these, 21 6-wheel-drive trucks were purchased from the Skoda plants in the Czech Republic, but the need for more cars existed and the development of a truck that was similar to the Czech was finalized in early 1941. The result was ATV m/42 (TVC) which was produced in 165 copies.
The individual wheel suspension was already on TVB and you probably got the inspiration from Czech Skoda. TVC got 6-wheel drive, but due to its front weight it had poorer terrain accessibility than TVB. The cars used as tractor units for artillery pieces were modified in two stages, first a larger engine and later a more spacious cab. The cars were in service until the early 1980s.
