Sweden will buy Patriot complexes in the USA

24
The Swedish government intends to purchase US Patriot air defense systems, reports RIA News Radio Sweden Post SR.




Stockholm expects to buy from the US four sets of air defense systems. Deliveries should begin in 2020 and end in 2025. The acquisition of the complexes will cost the Swedish treasury several billion crowns.

It is absolutely necessary to update the air defense that we have today. The one that exists today will not cope with the challenges in the world today,
said Swedish Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist.

As the radio noted, the Swedish authorities are discussing this issue with the opposition Center Party and the liberal-conservative Moderate Coalition Party. Ultimately, consensus was reached.

Armed forces support, and this is important. Then, this is a proven system and is found in many countries in our region, it increases the possibility of interaction and cooperation with others,
commented on the future purchase of the speaker of the Moderate Coalition Party on Defense Hans Wallmark.

    It is not for nothing that the United States has so many years escalated the situation and tryndels about the Russian threat. "Patriots" scatter like pies in the market. The main profit, the rest is secondary ...

      So they would take something newer, the sense is that they are outdated from the Petriots and will not be able to withstand the current threats, but there is no logic in the future and for a long time. They simply appease the American military-industrial complex. Not otherwise.

        Do not offer. The United States needs to be fused outdated, but at a good price.

          And who doesn’t tell the enemy of Sweden? Probably again Russia, which is not satisfied with Peter's victory over Karl and decided to “invite” the Swedes to its territory in order to once again lame.

        Yes, this is probably a universal launcher, the characteristics can be adjusted due to new missile defense, and a separate radar ...

        Who are you worried about? They’ll buy it anyway, since the owner demands it! And if so, then let them buy old, familiar to the Russian military weapons. A new one can fly up and fly over to some extent, and this is good, if it doesn’t jump at the start.

      They will be stuck on the island of Gotland and there will not only be profit already. There, after all, there are less than 200 km to Lithuania and we are actively using this corridor.

    These "patriots" are still that trash. Soviet missiles 50-60s can not shoot down, a disgrace. And the United States is happy to try, selling around the world, because it’s much more difficult to negotiate with Russia to buy an air defense system, because Russians are better, and the Kremlin understands this very well.

      1. Definitely trash. They also shoot down drones and combat aircraft and even ballistic missiles. Another thing is the failure of one aircraft C-300 and C-400.
      2. Since we agreed that they are rubbish, we are sure that Russia will not mind placing this rubbish at its borders.

        R-17 one out of five shot down. And about item number 1, I do not even want to comment. Saudi Arabia hastily buys S-400, instead of patriots, probably just like that, there is nothing to do from it))

        No.2. I am not a citizen of the Russian Federation, but I know for sure that the Russian army does not give a damn about this stuff.

          And you do not comment, but give a list of combat intercepts. Regarding the Saudis and C-400, this is generally Wishlist. Nothing is signed. request

    And what are they out of date? That's what Sweden has in service now, namely the MIM-23B Hawk (RBS-97) - those are really outdated. "Patriot" is regularly updated, adapting to new threats. What is obsolescence?

    Lord, how much can these events be replicated a quarter century ago, passing them off as the ultimate truth at present? During the war, the first modification of the Patriot was used in the bay, which was adapted to intercept aerodynamic targets and ballistic type Lance, that is, with a range of a hundred kilometers. They did not plan to intercept SCADA at all. But from hopelessness they were used. But with obstinacy worthy of a different application, the repetition of all this continues.
    There is one harmful category - all-crawler. But there is another one that says that they, our opponent, are all r ... oh, and we will tear them "at once." And then they suddenly start scratching the back of their head, not understanding how this happened.

    It is not at all necessary what they forced. Sweden's anti-aircraft missile systems are already outdated - this is the MIM-23B Hawk (RBS-97). Somehow they need to be replaced. That's just the question of who to buy from. The choice is extremely small. By and large - Russia, France, the USA. Moreover, American complexes are superior to French ones. What to choose from?

    Not in return, but in addition. And they also buy THAAD to destroy targets that the S-400 cannot bring down

    Well, complexes of various classes and purposes. The Patriot cannot intercept targets that the Iron Dome can intercept.
