Swedish media: We can strike at Russia


Sweden is rapidly militarizing, preparing for a military clash with the Russian Federation - such a conclusion can be drawn from a new article posted on the website of the television broadcasting corporation Sveriges Television. And this is not only about increasing military spending.


The number of military personnel, as noted in the text, will grow from the current 60 to 000 by 90. This number includes civilian members of the armed forces. Several previously disbanded regiments will be restored.

From 2025, the number of Swedes recruited annually into the ranks of the armed forces will increase to 8000. This is twice as much as in 2019.

In the Kingdom's navy, the number of submarines is planned to be increased from four to five. The grouping of seven corvettes will remain, but two of them will be modernized and two will be completely replaced. The ships will be equipped with a new automated air defense system. The west coast of Sweden will receive its own landing battalion.

In the future, the Air Force will be able to deploy approximately 80-100 combat aircraft of the old Gripen C / D modification, as well as 60 new Model E.

Additional guided missiles will be purchased. The aircraft must also be equipped with long-range missiles to attack ground targets. Such a long-range weapon will make it possible to strike at bases in Russia

- the text says frankly.

It is expected that more money will be required to carry out the entire planned modernization of the armed forces. However, funding will be the subject of the next defense plan, targeting 2026–2030.

As a result of rearmament, Sweden should be able to independently wage a war for three months, until help from other countries arrives in time. However, when exactly this goal will be achieved, Defense Minister Peter Hultkvist did not say.

It should be noted that the Swedish media and policy and have repeatedly stated that they see Russia as the main and, in fact, the only source of military threat. Some time ago, the parliament of the Scandinavian country called for joining NATO. And although the kingdom does not plan to join the alliance immediately, the very possibility is clearly stated.

The media also reported that the possible entry of Sweden into NATO will most likely become an example for Finland, which is also not going to part with neutrality, but will do so when the geopolitical situation changes.

      And it was the Ukrainians who inspired them with their military victories ... The Ukrainian flag is suitable as a patch to the Swedish one. The valiant Ukrainian soldiers defeated the Buryat cavalry division, at least three times destroyed the Pskov division, several football teams and a myriad of combat swimmers ... If a dick Ukrainian destroys two tanks with one stick, then 90000 Swedes will definitely reach Kamchatka laughing

    If an atomic squabble begins, then you guys will get it first of all, you will be gone, neither as a nation nor as a state. The RF Ministry of Defense made a decision in principle to equip the naval aviation of the Northern Fleet with the Dagger hypersonic complex. Training of personnel and infrastructure for the maintenance and operation of hypersonic weapons will begin in 2021, sources in the defense department told Izvestia.

    "Dagger" is the latest Russian aviation missile system (ARC), which includes a MiG-31K carrier aircraft and a hypersonic missile. The world learned about Russia's possession of these weapons in March 2018, and on May 9 of the same year, two MiG-31K fighters with Dagger complexes took part for the first time in the aviation part of the Victory Parade in Moscow. The Dagger missiles were successfully tested in difficult weather conditions, hitting targets the size of a car at a distance of 1 km, the Russian Defense Ministry reported in February 2019, the Bastion military-technical complex reminds.

    The debut display of the Russian hypersonic aviation missile kit (ARC) "Dagger" took place at the International Military-Technical Forum "Army-2020". This happened within the framework of a static display of aviation technology at the Kubinka airfield of the Army-2020 aviation cluster. The Russian Aerospace Forces was first demonstrated by the ARC "Dagger" as part of the MiG-31K carrier aircraft with tail number 89 and the "Dagger" rocket, according to VTS "Bastion". Prior to that, the RF Ministry of Defense published videos with flights and missile launches of this complex, and twice a MiG-31K aircraft with a "Dagger" suspension was shown in flight at the Victory Parade in Moscow.

    In the magazine of the Ministry of Defense "Voennaya Mysl", the hypersonic "Dagger" is called a weapon designed to perform strategic tasks in the pre-nuclear phase of large-scale conflicts. It is designed to destroy critical enemy targets, including military infrastructure, as well as government control units. Its very presence in service is called a factor of strategic non-nuclear deterrence, capable of stopping or preventing hostile actions of opponents against Russia.

    When placing hypersonic missiles "Dagger" in the Northern Fleet, MiG-31 fighters are used as their carriers. The squadron of the 45th mixed air regiment, located in Monchegorsk on the Kola Peninsula, is now equipped with such machines as part of the 98th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern Fleet (SF). The complex may enter service with a new aviation unit, Izvestia reports.

    Inferiority complexes that have not been overcome for 2 centuries do not give rest. They drove them with kicks 200 years ago into their natural boundaries, so the phantom itch still pesters at nights.
    Soon already black Swedes will tryndet about the glory of their great ancestors, the warriors of Charles XII and call for revenge.

      The last Russian-Swedish war ended 211 years ago.
      Who got them?
      Great Sweden is just a fat hyena. Its "greatness" is based on the very difficult times of neighboring countries. First, Troubles in Russia, then - the 30-year war in Northern Europe. As soon as the troubles were a thing of the past, Sweden was thrown out from the southern coast of the Baltic. And when she did not want to calm down, she and Finland were taken away. If they want to repeat, they will end up with the same result, they will lose something else. They are already losing themselves.

    They will be able to wage war on their own for three months until help from other countries arrives. And what if the help will go not for three, but for four months? They will go in a hurry.

    At the top in Sweden, schizophrenia is severe. According to the estimates of their own military, COORDINATING with the estimates of the Russian military, the Russian Federation will need a WEEK to neutralize the idiots. And the Swedes? They are very different from the prooving of the top and in their mass they are getting better and better at the Russians and the Russian Federation - after all, we are already here, in Sweden, and they see the difference between nonsense about us AND REAL Russian people (they all have Russian-speaking Russians, they are just starting understand the difference with the inhabitants of Central Asian states - the former Soviet republics). The Swedes are polite, not aggressive and remembering that it is better not to meddle with us with a sword, and the top is, in my opinion, not Swedes, they are similar to our "proov, jackal top, they are waiting for when it will be possible to get into the chicken coop on the sly.
