    Whatif, Viggen sale to India was approved

    In the 70s, India worked hard to acquire the Viggen, which was ultimately blocked by the US, due to distrust of India's relations with the USSR. In the end India went with the UK-French SPACECAT Jaguar. Lets say in this alternative history, the US did not block the sale, and it went through...

    Am I imagining things, or does Sweden's FFVS J 22 look like the radial powered Bf 109 V21 of 1938-39?

    If the drawings below are accurate, the resemblance is a bit odd, and profuse apologies if the topic was discussed before.

    Going Swedish for the UK?

    Could it have happened? Certainly the Lansen is a capable aircraft and the UK sold a number of Hunters to carry the Swedish Airforce over until the Fighter variant came on stream. The Drakken is very attractive and bar rate of climb compared favourably with the Lightning. The A.36 has if...

    Rb 08 anti-ship missile

    This rather obscure Sweden weapon system, actually, quite interesting: It is the first Western shipborne anti-ship missile ever commissioned, and the only one Western SSM close to Soviet cotemporary analogues (like P-15 "Termit"). Interesting to note, that it seems to be essentially an...

    Swedish LeClerc

    Meant to post on this last week. According to the ever reliable Micael over at HP&CA, Sweden is looking very favourably at having a version of the Leclerc as their next MBT. No word on whether it would incorporate any elements from the (badly lagging thanks to President Macron) SCORPION program...

    Swedish Hangarkryssare of 1946

    At you may find original drawings of a Swedish aircraft carrier design of 1946 - called in the Swedish "hangarkryssare" (I feel 'cruiser with a hangar'). The aircraft are the Sea Vampires. Piotr
