The UDES 03 is a Swedish tier 8 tank destroyer.
Developed in the early 1970s by the UDES research group, Bofors and Hägglunds companies. In 1972, the project was provided by the Bofors company. Later, it was decided to return to the concept with a traversable turret, and development was continued within the UDES 14 project. The Bofors project remained only in blueprints.
The UDES 03 is the first of the Swedish Tank Destroyers that feature hydraulic suspension, which can switch between two modes :Travel mode, which offers great mobility but sacrifices gun handling; and Siege mode, that offers great gun handling in exchange for mobility.
The UDES was nicknamed "Mountain Goat" for its ability to climb over rough hills and some hard terrain that are normally rarely accessible with other tanks. Some might use its advantage by sniping on high hills (hills on northern side of Redshire map for example) that provide great terrain protection and a sniping spot for this vehicle.
Unfortunately, the UDES is fairly hard to maneuver. Its heavily sloped armour can be easily overmatched by 61mm+ caliber guns. Combined with its absolutely horrible mobility in siege mode, this won't help you deal with flankers and also makes the UDES a targets for SPGs.
To shine in the UDES 03, players must know when and where they will position. Use your great mobility in travel mode to relocate yourself from enemies when you feel unsafe and use your great gun handling in siege mode to destroy enemy tanks.
The UDES 03 leads to the Strv 103-0.
