So N.6 wasn´t a M60 Patton?

I know n.2 for sure but I let someone else take that one, a hard nut I must say.

Didn't the Swedes have some M-41's that they modified with a bigger rounder turret? Just an idea for #6. Although it does look a bit beefy for an M-41 hull.

Number 6 can't be a Strv m/74. The overall shape simply doesn't match IMHO. The vehicle seems too small to be an M41 (or derivative thereof).

Trying to match it to an M60: the headlights match; though we only see two of the three return rollers they would appear to be in the right position; the overall shape of the turret; one of the two range finders poking out on the side of the turret; the stowage bins above the mudguards match; sprocket in the back; driver in the middle; smoke extractor 1/3 down the barrel.
Also, Sweden did test the M60 before finally settling for the Centurion. This could be one of the M60's tested.

The only things that don't quite add up are the tracks, which seem too narrow to be regular M60 tracks, and I can't make out the MG cupola. Maybe these omissions might be due to a domestic Swedish redesign?

And a quick visit to museum site can help solve #6 vehicle mistery...
http://www.arsenalen.se/en/default.aspx

Here are some photos from Parade, including nice photo of mistery vehicle
http://www.arsenalen.se/en/pam_40.aspx
#6 Swiss Panzer 68 !

And visit to collection site corrects #2 vehicle as SKP m/42, based on mentioned Tgbil m/42
http://www.arsenalen.se/en/fordon3en.aspx?f=14

So final list is:
1. S-tank
2. SKP m/42
3. Strv 101-2
4. Pbv 302
5. BMP-1
6. Panzer 68
7. T-72

Although I would still like to confirm #5, as #6 had shown us.

In the end we can conclude: never underestimate variety of tank museum vehicles, even in peaceful countries

Well done mate I walked right into that one and didn't see the Pz 68 coming. I think I didn't expect that one to show up in this line up. Knowing that Sweden had tested an M60, I thought that had to be the answer. Funny things is, the Pz 68 actually has all the features I recognised as belonging to the M60

P.S.: In case anyone is wondering Terrängbil m/42 means "terrain car".

My opion is that Bgbv81 (= Recovery vechile 81) has to wide tracks, and doesn´t have the right shape either. Bmp-1 Fits better

Under enlargement you can see the headlight in the same place as on the BMP, so I think yuo are correct.
