The Scania SBAT 111SA 6x6 is a military [[4x4]] cross-country truck. Special Bulldog Allwheeldrive Generation 1 11 liter dieselengine. It was designed and manufactured by Scania AB division of Saab-Scania, for the Swedish Defence,who designated it Terrängbil 30 (Tgb 30).
Scania SBAT111S is a similar three axle truck in [[6x6]]. Special Bulldog Allwheeldrive Tandem Generation 1 11 liter Supercharged dieselengine designated Terrängbil 40 (Tgb 40).
Tests begun in 1971, and Scania was rewarded a SEK 1500 million order in 1975. About 1700 SBA111 and 800 SBAT111S were delivered to the army, air force and navy, until 1981, when production stopped, but was restarted 1986 after an Indian order.
On Tgb 40s used for towing the 12 ton 155 mm Bofors field howitzer FH77, the APU of the selfpropelled howitzer can be operated by the truck driver with a controlunit to the left of the drivers seat to add traction at difficult cross country passages.
The Swedish Air Force operates 50 SBAT111S as airport crash tenders. The airforce also uses 80 SBA111 with double-cabin with three stearing wheels in a special snow blower version, fitted with a Scania DS14 diesel V8 to power the Rollba snow blower.The capacity is approx. 30 tons/minute of snow threwn 30 m.
The SBA111 is a forward control truck with a 6-cyl Scania diesel engine, a six-shift Scania automatic gearbox integrated with a mechanical two-shift transfer case driving all axles, the whinch and optional two other power-take-offs. Due to ample ground clearance, low center of gravity, locking differentials on all axles and automatic transmission, it has very good cross country mobility. It is fitted with a 87 kN winch.
Beside having one more axle and a larger capacity than the SBA111, the SBAT111S has a turbo charged (Supercharged) engine, a 100 kN winch and a power take-off when a 55 kNm hydraulic crane is fitted or other hydraulic operated units.
There were limited export Finland. The SBAT111S was thoroughly tested by Australia, USA and Canada, but no purchases were made mainly by political reasons. In a minor number, some solo trucks where sold to China, Libya, Mozambique,Iceland, Iraq, and some other countries. When India, in 1986, purchased 410 FH77 Bofors howitzers, they also ordered 660 of a for the Indian Army somewhat modified SBAT111S.
The Swedish Army then purchased 83 units of the improved SBAT111S and adopted them as Terrängbil 45 (Tgb 45).
For civilian purposes, certain trucks where sold when extreme cross-country mobility was required. They where equipped for fire-fighting, sewer-emtying, sky-lifting, highlifting loading-cranes, water and oildrilling and as recovery vehicles
