The Pvpj 1110 (Pansarvärnspjäs 1110) is a Swedish 90 mm recoilless rifle. It is also widely known as Pv-1110. It entered service at the early 1960s and was phased out of service in the Swedish Army in the late 1990s after 1,600 had been produced. Some 300 weapons were transferred to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
For Arctic warfare it could also be fitted to a pulka and pulled by two skiers.
The Pvpj 1110 is fitted with an optical sight and has an iron sight as backup.
The Pvpj1110 is designed to fire HEAT rounds with tracers. The Swedish designation for these rounds is spårljuspansarspränggranat (slpsgr)
