Swedish Defense Ministry returns submarine base in Gotland

62
Sweden began to return to its Ministry of Defense objects previously alienated from him. According to the portal navaltoday.com, the Swedish Fortifications Agency (SFA), the Swedish Fortifications Agency (SFA), has bought a private military base of submarines on the island of Gotland from a private individual.


Swedish Defense Ministry returns submarine base in Gotland


In the 2004 year, as part of a program to reduce military spending, the submarine base in the town of Ferosund was demilitarized and sold to a private person — then the SFA rescued SEK for the 18 object in million Swedish crowns.

Redemption of the object was not easy. The Swedish Defense Ministry says that when trying to buy a base of submarines, the military faced competition from the "Russian oligarch" who also wanted to acquire a former military facility.

In the SFA indicate that negotiations on the repurchase of the base continued from February 2017 of the year and ended with the signing of an agreement worth about 20 million Swedish kronas. Formally finalize the agreement to be the Government of Sweden, and by the end of April, the base should again become a military target.

On the island of Gotland, 58 resides 000 people, in addition, it is a popular holiday destination and is actively visited by tourists. In December last year, the Swedish Ministry of Defense announced the return of an army unit here, reports "Warspot"

        The most interesting thing is that Europe is afraid of an attack by Russia, and it itself went to war several times on us.
        The United States is afraid that we will use nuclear weapons, although they themselves are the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons twice, and in peaceful cities.

    With an airfield and a PKKK division, you can keep the entire East Baltic at gunpoint, and having located on the OTRK island you can strike along the coast of the Kaliningrad Region, with the deployment of the Swedish Armed Forces on the island (primarily air force and PKKK units), Sweden is blocking the Russian enclave in the Baltic ....

    In the 1990's, the island’s military organization included ground, air and naval troops — a total of about 25 thousand soldiers, of which a quarter were present on Gotland on an ongoing basis. The military presence on the island began to decline in 2000, the last armored regiment was disbanded in 2005. At the moment, there are 47 members of the armed forces who monitor a small military airfield and ammunition depot.

    On the island of Gotland, 58 people live permanently, in addition, it is a popular holiday destination and is actively visited by tourists.

    Vacationers can now be informed that the unique island of Gotland is now on the prestigious list of priority goals for the Russian Nuclear Forces and the Russian Navy. They didn’t want a yacht, they can get a yakhont or yars.

    Something infa about the ransom smacks of newspaper duck, and the fact that the Swedish MoD competed for the base with the Russian oligarch generally looks like a hat! Our oligarchs do not consider stolen money, so the Swedish Defense Ministry didn’t have a chance to win a game of money at all. Even patriotism would not help Sweden when KAMAZ brought money to it

    Swedish Defense Ministry returns submarine base in Gotland

    They had a strong submarine base in Malmö. And on Gotland, it’s not healthy. But what difference does it make? Both that, and another are "illuminated". And a direct hit 100-CT warheads will not stand. request

      The underground base of the Swedish Navy Musko. Probably the largest underground military facility in Sweden. This naval base is built under the granite rock of RockSolid. The base cannot be destroyed by nuclear or other weapons. It took 17 years to build and it has an 4 dock. Musko is an island that is connected to the mainland through a tunnel under the seabed (since bridges are easy to disable in case of war), about 3 km long that was built in 1964 year. In peacetime, 800 people worked at the base. This is not just a dock located underground, the entire naval base is built under the mountain. There is a repair plant, a hospital, canteens, barracks, etc., and all this inside the mountain. Thousands of soldiers will serve there in wartime, only in the hospital there are more than 1000 beds. The image of a true underground object would not be complete without a huge anti-explosion door. It weighs 45 tons, and can withstand pressure 200 tons / m2

        You, apparently, read the periodicals, and this, unfortunately, it all ends. But in vain.
        1. Muskö is not on Gotland, but 20 km southeast of Stockholm.
        2. The base in Farosund is: a pier, 3 piers, a dry dock and a dozen structures of a hangar type. It is redeemed only so that, in addition to remaining the only point of basing the submarines on the naval base in Karlskrona, there should be at least one, and closer to Russia.
        3. The Swedes built an underwater base in Muskö when the accuracy of nuclear warheads was 3-5 km. Now it is 80-350 meters. That is, a war block arriving will definitely have a direct hit. Considering that on our strategic BRs the power of blocks is from 200 kt to 20 Mt, there are no chances to survive. You yourself are smarter than everyone? Then here is a photo of 3 exits from 6. The height of the so-called "mountain" is 20-30 meters everywhere. Withstand a nuclear explosion? It’s ridiculous. In the same Balaclava, the mountain is higher and ours turned out to be more honest than the Swedes, indicating the ultimate power of the sustained nuclear explosion with a direct hit, 50-100 ct.



        PS My only mistake was that I confused Malmo with Muske. In Malmö there has always been a base point, unremarkable.

        Muske has two advantages - well-developed infrastructure and securing basing. I repeat, it will not save from a nuclear explosion.
