Sweden: famous for its peacekeeping

Check out its Association of Swedish Defence Industries. They’re quite happy to advertise that Scandinavian companies:

  1. Build bits of the engines for the U.S. F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) aircraft.
  2. Develop artilery: “The new generation artillery, together with our intelligent ammunition, can strike targets with very high accuracy at a range of up to 60 kilometres.” This is good for peacekeeping operations, apparently.
  3. Develop camoflage for the U.S. Army, a $1.8 billion 10 year contract. They say, “We’ve always taken pride in our ability to support the U.S. armed forces through the work we do here, and this contract assures us that we’ll be able to continue doing so for many years to come.”

Here’s a selection of peacekeeping tools developed by BAe in Sweden.
