The Landsverk L-185 was Swedish armored vehicle, developed by AB Landsverk in 1933. The L-185 wasn't used by the Swedish Army. In 1934, an modified L-185, built on a 4 x 4 Fordson chassis, was sold to Denmark, being 2.5 tons heavier than the original and it was issued to the Army Technical Corps of the Danish Army, under the Danish designation FP-6. Following the engine failure in the 1937, the L-185 was relegated to the training role in 1939.[1][2]
