Strv 103 autoloader mechanism in depth explanationn

So, I’ve always wondered how the autoloader works from a mechanical standpoint, and a game standpoint, and will explain a few things about the ammo and how it’s actually slightly, and almost completely different from the standard L7 guns shells because of how much they are battered around, they need to be modified to keep from misfires.

Here is the “schematic” of the loader Magazine

The “schematic” of the lift system itself

So the system itself is rather crude to be honest, a small hydraulic on a bar to push it at high speeds, and locks into place to load, however I don’t know how the unloading system works.

Later edit: figure out by the placement of arms on the side of “Stativ” is folding, with a type of belt system to slide the shell in and then out after firing.
