    An swedish excercise from 1981. The plot is a small number of troops try to take over key installations in the capitol (like the Royal Palace, the media centers and such) with surprise. Eg. Spetznaz would do in the early hours of the war.

    24 units only. It's a damn shame we didn't get more of them. And they will all be in Norrland too...

    Does Sverige still have towed artillery anymore?

    Going from 177 FH77s only 20 years ago to 24 archers is indeed shameful. Sure, they are more capable but there is something to be said about quantity being a quality of itself.
    We have no towed art in the general sense, only a number of 8cm and 12cm mortars.

    FH77 & FH77B represents an exelent family of great howitzers, but they can't keep up with the rapid combat of advancing or retreating mechanised units..

    FH77B would be left behind when the Swedish army units retreat in case of a conflict scenario on Swedish soil

    But I agree that 24 Archers is not enough. It would be 48 of them. That number would be more sufficient, and give the artillery the same firepower as aprox. 150 - 200 FH77B howitzers.


    We have suffered from the lack of an army for at least 10 - 15 years now BTW!

    We need to purchase about 28 to 35 new Patria NEMO mortars for our seven ground-combat battalions. The desperatly need a battalion level fire support option!

    Great video, nice to see the ikv91 in action to (as ikv91, only seen them used to simulate T-72s)..


    I actually love the concept of exercises like this, in the real environment.. Having seen the effects of units trained on the streets of Stockholm vs units from other parts of Sweden it's a big advantage to be training in your real life AO..
    Funny though that they actually assaulted the palace, I wonder what the tourists thought
    pretty hard to imagine the US Army being allowed to run an exercise where they physically assault capitolium or the White House...

    Why the NEMO and not the AMOS on a CV90 or AMV chassis?
