Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

The Ikv 103 is a Swedish tier 5 tank destroyer.

In 1956, production of a modernized variant of the Ikv 102 SPG, designated Ikv 103, was started. These vehicles were designed to provide fire support to infantry. A total of around 80 vehicles were manufactured and remained in service till the early 1980s.

The Ikv 103 leads to the Ikv 65 Alt II.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:

- Very high alpha damage (Can one or two shot many tier 4 and tier 5 vehicles)

- Good mobility and acceleration with a high top speed (with top engine only).

- Good accuracy at short and middle range

- Low profile and the best camouflage of all tier 5 TDs


Cons:

- Low rate of fire, even when compared to other howitzers

- Premium shell only improves a little compared to standard shell

- Tight gun arc

- Terrible accuracy at mid to long range, and takes a lot of time to get fully aimed

- Terrible traverse speed

- Low health (although it's same amount of TD standard) combined with wet cardboard armor and awful gun range make this TD frighteningly prone to being one-shotted

- High shell arc and low shell velocity (since it was originally an SPG) makes moving targets/targets on hill nearly impossible to hit

- Maximum speed this tank can drive is much lower than its top speed with fairly slow acceleration (its top speed is 60 km/h, but the tank can only drive up to 40-45 km/h without driving downhill, though that is still quite fast), somewhat slow track traverse and terrible speed with stock engine

- No HE on the top gun, HEAT can't inflict any damage against spaced armor including tracks, HEAT penetration is not enough to penetrate most of tier 6-7 tanks

- Despite it sports the best camo rating in tier 5, it does not preform well as a sniper of any sort due to its overall terrible gun handling and very poor view and signal range, Forced you to go into frontline and make high camo rating almost pointless


Performance

Arguably one of the most interesting tank destroyers ingame. Armed with a very unique high-alpha HEAT slinging gun, coupled with immensely high mobility and very poor armor, this tank destroyer stands apart from the crowd.

Not only does the Ikv 103 use howitzers exclusively, the guns themselves are atypical. Unlike normal howitzers, the top gun does not fire any AP shells nor HE shells, only firing HEAT for both standard and premium rounds. While HEAT do have the advantage of not losing any penetration over distances, they will fail against spaced armor and have no normalization against sloped armor. Additionally, the lack of any HE shells means that this vehicle can be almost completely ineffective against highly armored opponents. As such, you should be careful about the shots you take in this tank destroyer, as a missed opportunity to kill an enemy will often result in dangerous return fire. Spaced and highly sloped armor can foil HEAT shells, so shots should be focused on areas of flat armor without obstructions like the tanks suspension or gun mantlets to absorb the shot.

Fortunately, the Ikv 103 has the highest camouflage value while stationary of all tier 5 tank destroyers. Despite its sloping, its armor is exceedingly weak and will be over matched by almost every tank you will meet. Unlike its predecessor, the Ikv 103 is also quite mobile and has a high power-to-weight ratio. While its top speed of 60 kph is somewhat optimistic as it will take a long period of acceleration even with a 100% driver to reach that on flat ground, it will still be able to move around at 45-50 kph on average, making it quite easy to re-position. It's track traverse is a bit slow though, so make sure to not let any light or medium tanks to sneak up and flank you. Finally, like all Swedish tank destroyers, the Ikv 103 has excellent gun depression, letting it poke over ridge-lines, fire, and scoot back before taking any damage. However, because of its terrible shell velocity the Ikv 103 does not preform well as a sniper, it's much better suited for a player with a semi- or simply aggressive play style. Play it like a light/medium tank, use the speed, gun depression, and high alpha to your advantage, avoid situations where damage is exchanged with the enemy as much as possible, and try to camp as little as possible.


Early Research

You can mount everything without the need of the upgraded suspension, then you can skip it (unless you want to mount equipment). Start researching the Ford 391 engine, since it needs a small amount of experience and it will give you a 25 hp boost. The default 10,5cm gun is enough to kill/hit targets, so research the Ra 105 radio (you can unlock it if you buy the next tank, the Ikv 65 Alt II). Finally, research the 10,5cm Ikv 103 gun. You can research the upgraded suspension for increased mobility.

Historical Info

In 1956, along with the refit of the Infanterikanonvagn 72 to Infanterikanonvagn 102 (see previous part), it was decided to start the production of a second batch of Ikv’s with the upgrades considered for the Ikv 72 built in to the design. This vehicle would become known as the Infanterikanonvagn 103 and a total of 81 vehicles of this type were produced between 1956 and 1957, making it the most widely produced assault gun in the Swedish army at that point. Although externally similar to the earlier models, the Ikv 103 featured a number of changes, such as the addition of a roof, a change of the main armament from a 75mm to 105mm and the addition of a more powerful engine. The engine, used in the Ikv 103 was a 150hp 4-cylinder boxer engine, originally developed by Svenska Flygmotor AB for use in the Saab Safir training aircraft. The air for the new engine did not need to pass through the crew compartment (something appreciated by crews in winter) and this also gave the vehicle its distinctive “grills” on both sides of the engine compartment.
Ikv 103 rear, here the “grills” can clearly be seen.

Generally the vehicle was well liked by its crews, who enjoyed its great manoeuvrability and high top speed. After the Ikv 103, there would be an almost 10 year break before the development would start on the next Ikv project, but in the meantime, there were some interesting things going on with the Ikv 103. Sometime during the early 60′s, three Ikv 103 had their guns removed and were experimentally fitted with a new upgraded 6-cylinder engine called B61. The new engine almost doubled the horsepower of the original, going from 150hp to 230hp. This increased the mobility of the vehicle considerably and gave it a power to weight ratio of over 25hp/t. However, it was found out that the new engine was insufficiently cooled and therefore the project was cancelled and the vehicles were restored to their original condition.

One of the three Ikv 103 refitted with the experimental engine

In addition to these tests, attempts were made to sell the Ikv 103 design to both Switzerland and India with a new 199hp Ford engine. There were even plans for a troop carrier version for India, but nothing ever came of it. That’s not the end of it however, since there seems to have been an attempt to sell an unarmed variant of the vehicle as a reconnaissance version.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

* Infanterikanonvagn 103 was never intended for anti-armour purposes, but strictly for providing the Swedish infantry with a shrapnel-protected field gun to take out enemy machine gun nests and the like with High Explosive shells. It was eventually given a supplementary HEAT-round for self-defence situations.
  • The real life gun depression of the Ikv 103 was 16 degrees, but in game it is only 12 degrees (contrary to what the stats say on this page currently)
  • The planned B61 engine had 230 HP but is currently unavailable. The top Ford 391 engine, intended for export to India and Switzerland, should have had 199 hp.
