    Sweden has reactivated the RBS23 "Bamse" air defence system on Gotland.

    The system was cut from the Swedish defence in the early 00s becouse of budget restraints but remained in the reserv. In 2019 it was reported that the system was being upgraded and now its returning to service.

    https://sputniknews.com/europe/202104161082646994-washington-and-oslo-sign-revised-deal-to-allow-us-military-to-expand-presence-in-norway/

    Before coming into effect, the agreement will have to be ratified by Norway's parliament. In February, US B-1 strategic bombers arrived in Norway to conduct training missions, making this the first time American planes have operated in the Scandinavian country.

    The United States and Norway signed a revised deal on Friday allowing the US military to set up its own facilities on Norwegian soil, according to an announcement from Norway.

    US armed forces will be permitted to install facilities at three airfields and a naval base. However, Norway specified that the deal does not provide for the establishment of military bases in the country.

    The development comes after the United States carried out its first training mission in Norway with its B-1 strategic bombers in February.

    The manoeuvre was intended to test warplanes in the north and improve their interoperability with allies.

    Russian Foreign Ministry previously said that Oslo's intention to deploy US strategic bombers at its airbase near Trondheim was seen as another step toward increasing military activity in the region.

    The Finnish Defense Forces released an intelligence review for 2021, including this infographic with the military forces in the Baltic and Nordic regions. They estimate that Russia has 900k active servicemen and a ~20 brigade strength in Western Russia.
