In an effort to redefine the parameters of the Swedish Army, a standardization of Swedish Brigades was agreed upon early on amongst the strategists and operational planners for the Swedish Army. The standard unit of the Swedish Army would be the brigade "battle group", which was an enlarged formation, and numbered as much as many divisions did in other contemporary armies. The brigade "battle group" consisted of three regiments, plus one battalion of supporting artillery, and also included intrinsic units such as supply, command and control, and standard medical evacuation units. Numbering as much as twelve thousand men in total, the Swedish brigade "battle group" was considered to the equivalent of a division, which eliminated any divisional command levels in the Swedish military, commanded by a Brigadier or Major General, the Swedish brigade was a unit with enough firepower and manpower to match most divisions of other nations.

Standard infantry brigades would consist of three regiments, all provided with motorized transport when feasible, which allowed for the Swedish Army to maintain mobility and respond to changing battlefield conditions quickly and efficiently. Each "line infantry" regiment consists of four battalions, each with five companies of two-hundred soldiers each. Each battalion would be assigned its own combat engineer forces, able to provide demolition and heavy assault equipment for various missions or assignments. Along with its own intrinsic combat engineer force, companies were issued anti-tank missile launchers, lightweight 81mm mortars, as well as a respectable amount of machineguns, both light and heavy, as well as man-portable surface-to-air missile launching systems. Standard airborne forces would be issued similar numbers of troopers, while receiving generally lighter equipment, while mechanized infantry brigades and their regiments would receive armored personnel carriers ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patria_AMV]Patria AMVs[/url] - various configurations) and infantry fighting vehicles (CV90 - various configurations) at the platoon level. Also issued at the mechanized infantry brigades' company level is a platoon of three [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMX_10_RC]AMX 10 RC[/url] wheeled armored cars to provide reconnaissance and heavy direct-fire support.

Armored brigades would be made up of three regiments, two armored regiments, along with a standard mechanized infantry regiment for infantry support. Armored regiments would be issued a nominal strength of two-hundred tanks ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard_2]Leopard 2S9[/url] - updated [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanchan_armour]composite armor[/url], 120mm [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrothermal-chemical_technology]ETC[/url] main gun, sensor upgrades, and [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M1_Abrams#Tank_Urban_Survival_Kit]urban survival kit[/url] upgrades), which would be divided into four battalions of fifty tanks each (armored regiments originally made up of only one-hundred and twenty tanks). Battalions of armor nominally have five companies or "squadrons" of ten tanks each, along with company of armored cavalry, consisting of infantry fighting vehicles ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CV90]CV90[/url] - various configurations), and one hundred ground troops. Air cavalry brigades, following along the standard lines of three-regiment units, will consist of nine-thousand ground troops, organized between three battalions at the regimental level. Attached at the regimental level will be a fourth battalion, exclusively made up of [url=http://i1192.photobucket.com/albums/aa325/VictorDeltaRomeo/ArtistsRenditionWFS7.jpg]SAH-80C [i]Járngreipr[/i][/url] heavy attack helicopters. Various transport helicopters, including [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AgustaWestland_AW101]SUH-101[/url] and [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UH-60]SUH-60[/url] Medium Utility Helicopters, [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CH-53K]SCH-53K[/url] and [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CH-47]SCH-47[/url] Heavy Utility Helicopters, as well as [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MH-6]SLH-6[/url] light attack/observation helicopters are available for various mission requirements at the regimental level for ground forces.

Brigade-attached artillery forces augment regimental artillery batteries, which are issued a standard of six light howitzers, either towed ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M119_howitzer]M119[/url] 105mm Howitzer) or self-propelled ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FV433_Abbot_SPG]SFV433G[/url] Self-Propelled 105mm Howitzer - upgraded with a Bofors [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G7_howitzer]SG7[/url] 105mm Howitzer), and provide extra firepower when needed for the entire brigade. Artillery battalions at the brigade level consist of five batteries of five guns each, generally brigade-level artillery battalions are assigned with 155mm caliber weaponry, either the self-propelled ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G6_howitzer]SG6[/url] Self-Propelled 155mm Howitzer), self propelled [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archer_Artillery_System]ARCHER[/url] Artillery System, or towed ([url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G5_howitzer]SG5[/url] 155mm Howitzer), or a mix of the three. Artillery regiments are generally assigned to corps-level formations, but can be detached to work at brigade level, and usually consist of four battalions of five batteries each. Typically the artillery regiment at the corps level will have at least one battalion containing truck-mounted M136 saturation rocket systems, which can be detached at the battery level to brigades to give heavy saturation fire. Every "line", "airborne", or "air cavalry" battalion has an attached company of twelve [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L16_81mm_mortar]G16[/url] 81mm Mortars (upgraded with Bofors ammunition to have an effective range of seven kilometers) to make up for the lack of direct fire support afforded to mechanized formations with the use of the AMX 10 RC.

Anti-aircraft regiments are typically attached at the Corps level, but their battalions and batteries can be detached, and usually are detached to support various brigades within the Corps. Anti-aircraft brigades comprise four battalions of five batteries each, and like artillery regiments, are usually used to supplement anti-aircraft units already existing at the battalion headquarters company of most existing infantry and armored units. Anti-aircraft weaponry varies from battery to battery, but each battery is guaranteed to contain two [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunguska-M1]M87[/url] SPAA systens and three Patria AMVs (similar to the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAV-25#Derivatives]LAV-AD[/url] configuration) with an air defense configuration for anti-missile and short-range air defense. [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASAMS]SASAMS[/url] short-to-medium range systems are also available to the anti-aircraft regiments, which can use a variety of missiles, many adopted from their air-to-air configuration for surface-to-air launch. Also available are units of [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-500_missile]S-500[/url] and [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-400]S-400[/url] surface-to-air missile systems, which are not assigned below the anti-aircraft regiment level. Each battalion in most infantry or armor has their own intrinsic SASAMS, M87 SPAA, and Patria AMV-AD systems, whereas systems like the S-500 and S-400 are theater defense systems, but can be detached for duty with various formations.

Marine Expeditionary Units are an anomaly in the Swedish Armed Forces, as they usually operate individually and are smaller then typical Swedish line formations. Marine Expeditionary units typically comprise three battalions of five-hundred men each, and also are assigned their own organic tank battalions (thirty tanks), an artillery battalion, anti-aircraft battery, along with their own support unit. Mechanized and amphibious assault capabilities are provided by the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphibious_Assault_Vehicle]AAVP-7[/url], [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expeditionary_Fighting_Vehicle]EFV[/url], and Patria AMV systems. The Marine unit, as a smaller force, is generally considered to be an elite unit by Swedish standards, and they are generally used as shock forces outside of an amphibious environment, due to their proven tenacity.

In addition to the structuring of the Swedish Army Brigades, the Swedish Home Army, consisting of an all-reserve force with limited active duty officers and technical staff, has been organized into seven coastal defense brigades and four frontier defense brigades. The Swedish coastline and northern borders has often been seen as the frontier from which Sweden is most vulnerable, and given its' extensive coastline, that assumption is most likely true.

The coastal defense brigades are considered to be second-line forces, built more for garrison and security missions, rather then front-line defense, but are well-trained in beachhead defense, anti-amphibious warfare tactics, and air defense warfare. The structure of the coastal defense brigade is as follows; two regiments of motorized infantry form the core combat element of the brigade. These infantry units are backed up by a battalion of land-based anti-ship missiles and anti-ship ballistic missiles, organized into six batteries. Further support for the brigade is provided by a battalion of mechanized infantry, as well as a battalion of heavy infantry weapons, including extra mortars, automatic weapons, man-portable anti-tank and anti-aircraft systems. Additionally a battalion of artillery and anti-aircraft weaponry is also provided to the brigade.

Members of the coastal defense brigades typically train for one full month out of the year, as well as participating in bi-weekly drills. Full time support staff from the regular forces maintains equipment and readiness standards for the rest of the unit, and also manage training scenarios. As each brigade is assigned a section of coastline on which they are required to operate, all members of the coastal defense brigades are familiarized with their coastlines, many being outdoor enthusiasts, or are involved in employment in their regions. All brigades are expected to be fully operational within twenty-four hours, with some units able to begin combat operations in six hours or even less in some cases.

Frontier defense brigades are typically comprised of three second-line infantry regiments, which typically comprise personnel experienced in Arctic or mountainous climates, mostly recruited from the Norrland region. The frontier defense brigades typically are augmented with all the same formations and support forces that are granted to the coastal brigades, aside from anti-ship missile batteries, and are typically assigned a second artillery battalion instead. Frontier brigades typically operate in the Norrland region, providing patrol duties and border security missions in conjunction with the Swedish National Police Customs and Borders Division. Frontier defense brigades are assigned a squadron of attack helicopters (twelve helicopters), as well as a battalion (thirty) helicopters of various models and utilities.

In the interests of maintaining combat effectiveness over the skies of our country, and wherever our nation is involved in aerial campaigns, whether they be against foreign aircraft or in support of our own troops, the Swedish Air Force has been reorganized to fit today's modern combat formations. Command and control of squadrons will be given on a "group" basis, which is effectively five squadrons put together into one large wing of aircraft. All aircraft groups are afforded their own command and control, maintenance, rearmament, and security personnel. As squadrons of aircraft will continue to exist, groups will tend to operate out of multiple air bases at once, which are geographically close to one another. The groups of aircraft will be as follows.

As Sweden uses multiple fighter aircraft, some fighter groups will have mixed compositions to equally spread out more advanced models of aircraft. Most SAF-44 aircraft are expected to be replaced by the [i]Wargaz[/i] Stealth Fighter, which is under development/testing phase at this moment. A number of B-1R-equipped groups are expected to be replaced by SAB-101 [i]Dragon[/i] Strategic Bombers when the latter is fully developed and ready for combat operations. All Swedish Navy FAA squadrons/groups are armed with the NSAF-68 [i]Mjolnir[/i] Multirole Stealth Fighter, which is well-suited for CATOBAR operations. The pilots of the Special Warfare Group, usually known just as "Group 66", are trained on multiple airframes, large and small, as well as rotary aircraft, the Special Warfare Group usually borrows mission-specific aircraft to fit their needs, and are normally used for ground support of special forces, as well as regular forces, they are also proficient in air-to-air combat, and are sometimes utilized in that role, as well.

To provide adequate maritime security of the Swedish Coastline, the Swedish Navy, once fully equipped with naval vessels, is to be divided between the Baltic and Kattegat, taking into account operational requirements for both maritime environments. Naval vessels are expected to be dispersed during peacetime, to ensure adequate maritime security coverage in support of constabulary operations. Under the event that a threat should arise, surface vessels will be grouped into surface action groups or carrier battlegroups ensure their protection against missile and aerial threats, as it is easier to coordinate and respond to anti-ship threats in such configurations.

[b]Swedish Admiralty Dispatch #ADM11062011 to the Swedish Prime Minister[/b]

[quote]"With the general approval of the Swedish [i]Riksdag[/i], the Swedish Navy has begun the procurement of its seagoing fleet, which will give it the capabilities needed to operate overseas and in regional waters at a high standard of competency. The vessel designs chosen for the Swedish Navy all have their own purposes, and are designed to operate in both the littoral combat aspect of the Baltic Sea, while maintaining the capability for standard blue-water projection missions. This gives the Swedish fleet an almost unmatched degree of flexibility, and is expected to contribute to any success the Swedish Armed Forces meet in the future.

For standard littoral operations, the navy currently has in its possession three [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_class_Patrol_ship]River-class Patrol Boats[/url], which will be supplemented by a further fifteen [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamina_class_missile_boat][i]De Geer[/i]-class Missile Boats[/url]. Also to supplement littoral operations, Karlskrona AB - Halmstad Division, in charge of construction work on the [i]De Geer[/i]-class Missile Boats, will participate in the construction and outfitting of nine [url=http://i1192.photobucket.com/albums/aa325/VictorDeltaRomeo/usafsgdmmc1.gif][i]Huldra[/i]-class Littoral Combat Ships[/url], licensed and slightly modified copies of a United Federation of the East design. Giving further muscle to littoral combat missions as well as contributing to blue-water capabilities will be the seven frigates of the [url=http://www.shipbucket.com/images.php?dir=Never%20Built%20Designs/Great%20Britain/GB%20FFG%20UCL%202004_%20Future%20Surface%20Warship%201.gif][i]Stockholm[/i]-class[/url], a frigate designed with combat modularity in mind.

For blue water operations, forming the backbone of the Swedish Navy's projection forces will be the seven guided missile destroyers of the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atago_class_destroyer][i]Gustav II[/i]-class[/url], providing a variety of services to the Swedish fleet, from cruise missile strikes, to area denial operations, to escort duties. Heavier strike and defense capabilities for the blue-water fleet will fall to four arsenal ships of the [url=http://i1192.photobucket.com/albums/aa325/VictorDeltaRomeo/ArsenalShipUpgraded.png][i]Odin[/i]-class[/url], while the six cruisers of the [url=http://www.shipbucket.com/images.php?dir=Alternate%20Universe/GB%20CG%20Global%20Cruiser_%20Type%2045%202%20AU.gif][i]Uppland[/i]-class[/url] will provide a strong escort and aerial defense coordination for Sweden's aircraft carriers. All of these preceding vessels will be the responsibility of Karlskrona AB's Gothenberg and Falkenberg Division facilities.

For amphibious warfare, the responsibilities will be split between the four amphibious assault vessels of the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasp_class_amphibious_assault_ship][i]Resolute[/i]-class[/url], and the amphibious transport docks of the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Antonio_class_amphibious_transport_dock][i]Storm[/i]-class[/url]. These vessels, along with the four [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Elizabeth_class_aircraft_carrier][i]Breitenfeld[/i]-class aircraft carriers[/url], will be constructed Karlskrona AB's Stockholm Division, which has three shipbuilding facilities in the Stockholm metropolitan area.

Karlskrona AB's Home Division, based at Karlskrona itself, will be responsible for the procurement of the Swedish submersible fleet, which is expected to comprise eight [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohio-class][i]Fafnir[/i]-class Ballistic Missile Submarines[/url], with an option for four to be configured as guided missile submarines. For nuclear attack submarines, the Swedish navy will rely on ten [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Seawolf_%28SSN-21%29][i]Hengist[/i]-class submarines[/url], and twelve [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_212][i]Torstenson[/i]-class diesel submarines[/url], the latter ideal for usage in littoral as well as forays into limited blue-water operations.

Along with these acquisitions, it is expected that with additional funding, the navy will also provide vessels for its auxiliary fleet, which will provide services for both the Swedish Navy and Coast Guard. Additional vessels will include sealift, container, dry-cargo transports, as well as replenishment vessels, repair vessels, oceanic survey vessels, surveillance vessels, and other required vessels. Priority orders have been granted to diesel submarine and littoral vessel construction orders, as well as the construction of amphibious transport docks."[/quote]

Typically, the Swedish Armed Forces is made up of a strong cadre of both regular and reserve personnel, as well as conscripted personnel drawn from the nation's mandatory conscription laws, which enforces a two year conscription in the regular forces of the military, as well as eighteen months service as a reservist. Public service personnel, including police officers, firefighters, individuals serving in political office, et cetera are exempt from military service, but may waive this right, as well as enlist as reservists, which many public servants do. All Swedish Army units are coed, including front-line combat units, where there are women serving right on the front line with male counterparts, as well as leading forces as commanding officers of formations that reach the Corps level. Despite mandatory conscription being a requirement for Sweden, polls have suggested that given the ardent patriotism that runs throughout many Swedish youth in this era in Sweden's new history instill a strong sense of duty and honor in serving the Swedish State.

Swedish regular and reserve forces train together frequently, alongside forces from both the Air Force and the Navy, all of which have basic combat training (naval and air force recruits are given six week combat and physical training course, regulars and reservists go through nine weeks). Subsequent skills training are offered to volunteers as much as possible, many Swedish Army forces are certified basic parachutists, a requirement for all air cavalry units as well as Special Forces units, and of course, airborne units. Vehicle crews are regularly trained as infantry forces, and are expected to fight on foot, or re-crew vehicles that have lost crew members but are still functioning, all combat vehicle drivers are expected to be certified drivers of every armored fighting vehicle the Swedish Army maintains, and every crew member has cross-training in other abilities, which lessens combat effectiveness due to attrition rates.

Most Swedish Army forces are trained as operational units, and basic training platoons are generally rotated into the same battalion, to allow for troops to maintain the bonds they gained through training with the same unit. Attrition in Swedish units on the front-line is dealt with by basically "collapsing" the unit into itself, using survivors to form composite squads, platoons, and companies when attrition rates are at their highest. This allows for cohesion to be maintained, and allowing for the individual soldier to retain the bonds they keep with fellow surviving soldiers which they. To allow for a reconstitution of a unit, Swedish units that are pegged for replacements are typically pulled off the line, and fed replacements for a period of three weeks, allowing the new soldiers to ease their transition into the unit, and allowing for surviving soldiers to bond with new soldiers and work out basic roles and functions with the new soldiers. Typically, soldiers from the same geographic area are place within the same unit, many might know the soldier standing next to them, and trained replacement platoons that are fresh from basic or advanced infantry training are typically from the same region as the men they are joining.

Many Swedish Army regulars, especially the "lifers", have prior service with the Germanic Armies, and thus are combat-hardened in multiple campaigns, and form a core basis of junior and field-grade officers, as well as senior non-commissioned officers, who mentor junior non-commissioned officers who are often re-enlistments. The typical Swedish rifle platoon of fifty men has a fourteen-soldier headquarters section, along with three twelve-soldier squads, which are then broken down into two six-soldier sections, these sections are typically led by a lance-corporal, and each assigned an Mk-48 Light Machinegun, as well as five riflemen, including one designated marksman. The inclusion of two Mk-48 light machineguns into each squad gives Swedish Army squads a prodigious amount of firepower, as well as tactical flexibility. All section leaders are required to be certified in the use of the NORDCOMM system, and any combat soldier can volunteer to be certified through training during training offerings throughout every year.

All soldiers are well-versed in the use of assault tactics, defensive tactics, cover, and the construction of field positions. The emphasis on marksmanship in Sweden's basic infantry doctrine has made Swedish infantry excellent light infantry, able to perform well without mechanized support and in small teams. While ammunition supply for training has led to a very superlative program of training, it has been emphasized since the first days of combat in Swedish recruits' training that ammunition cannot always be so plentiful, and that conserving ammunition while enhancing accuracy will pay off dividends in combat. While Swedish soldiers do not have a plethora of experience in many alternate terrains, they do know their home territory well, and perform well in wooded and rugged conditions, as well as in snow and inclement weather; all Swedish Armed Forces personnel are given at least two weeks of basic Arctic survival training, and regular forces serve at least one week per year in the Northern Frontier of Sweden.

Swedish infantry weapons are numerous in make and model, most employing basic 5.56mm ammunition, the common weapon used by the Swedish Armed Forces is considered to be the M8 Modular Weapon Family, providing a wide array of modular designs, including a designated marksman rifle, standard assault carbine, a submachinegun, and a light machinegun configuration. Along with the superlative M8, weapons that are deployed by the Swedish Armed Forces include the ACR, the S8A1 Carbine, the S7 Assault Rifle, G-36, with many of the special operations forces carrying various weaponry at their disposal. A standard sidearm of the Swedish Armed Forces is the Glock 17 Semi-Automatic Pistol, many soldiers having purchased the machine-pistol Glock 18 for close quarters combat. Swedish soldiers are also issued standard fighting knives, and are allowed to carry personal weapons, including shotguns, especially in urban environments.

The typical front-line regular forces are issued the indigenous-developed RESOLUTE Body Armor, which uses plates of lightweight ceramic armor and Kevlar to protect vital areas, while working double-time as a load-carrying system, offering a significant amount of ammunition and grenade pouches, as well as a built-in hydration system. The RESOLUTE Body Armor has armor of various types over shins, thighs, arms, and torso, while troops are issued helmets that protect the neck and ears, as well as ballistic eyewear. Once suited up, this armor helps provide ballistic and shrapnel protection. All troops are issued with BIOCHEM Defense Masks, and are instructed in basic survival in a CBRN environment, hands are protected by a Kevlar-based glove system which provides dextirity while offering flash and heat protection for limited amounts of time up the seven hundred degrees Fahrenheit. For foot protection, combat boots are issued with a comfort-fit steel toe and shank, which offers foot protection against all but the toughest of non-explosive foot-wound-inducing weaponry.
