Volvo Bandvagn 202e (BV202)

The Royal Artillery Museum. Sweden - Volvo Bandvagn 202e (BV202) All-Terrain Vehicle - 1962.
The Volvo BV202 is a tracked, all-terrain vehicle developed by Volvo BM, a subsidiary of Volvo, for the Swedish Army. It was designed to transport troops and equipment through snow or boglands in the northern parts of Sweden. The Bv 202 carries driver and commander in the front unit and 8 troops in the trailer unit. It can be adapted for other, different, applications.

The vehicle is formed of two rubber Kegresse track units with a multi-directional pivot in between. The front unit contains the engine and gearbox through which power is delivered to the front and, via a propshaft in the pivot mechanism, the rear tracks. A hydraulic ram on the pivot “bends” the vehicle in the middle to steer it – there is no braking of track units for steering as on conventional tracklaying vehicles. The controls are a conventional steering wheel on the left hand front of the vehicle.

The one thing I will always remember is making a ski run for a local competition outside the town of Honefoss by using these and the hill was not flat by any means.
