    They forgot to mention the EMP generator which kills any piece of electronics in a 10 mile radius, conveniently preventing the selfie army from documenting the thousands of their tank kills.

    Also the same day Sweden orders a upgrade package for thier older Gripen of the C and D version. The order includes new upgraded engines, a new radar (probably AESA), a new electronic warfare system.
    Basicly they are upgrading them close to the new E version. Keeping them probably thru the 2030s.

    https://www.saab.com/newsroom/press-releases/2022/saab-receives-order-for-upgrade-of-gripen-cd

    "Saab and the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) have today signed a contract and Saab has received an order to ensure the continued operability of and provide capability enhancements to the fighter aircraft JAS 39 Gripen C/D. The order value is approximately SEK 3.5 billion and the contract period is 2023-2029."

    US will oblige them to send that to Ukraine. They shouldn't produce them. It's throwing money for nothing.

    Yep... spend spend spend... the threat from Russia that you created for yourselves is well worth spending billions of euros on because at the end of the day it is all about freedom.... not freedom of speech otherwise you can't ban RT and Sputnik News, it is about the freedom of the MIC to make lots of money and lots of social programmes to be cut to pay for it all.

    Sweden has started training with the new Bamse (rbt23) on Gotland. The system was reactivated in 2019 to add more anti-air capabilities on the island.
