25
The Swedish Defense Ministry received an offer from the United States (an offer to conclude a deal) for the supply of four Patriot anti-aircraft systems (Patriot), according to News.




According to the product description, "each of the missile systems has its own command center, power station, radar and three launchers."

In addition, as part of each complex includes equipment designed to control the "two battalions of air defense."

The validity of the offer is up to 10 August 2018. If the proposal is accepted, the American side undertakes to deliver the main parts of the order in 2021 – 2022. What is the price proposal is not reported.

Recall, the Patriot air defense system belongs to medium-range complexes. Last year, Sweden conducted the largest joint exercise with NATO, Aurora-20, in 2017 years, in which American units also took part.

        Yes, this is the same ISIS, only a side view. I am convinced that there will be a military conflict between the Russian Federation and Ukraine, as the ideology is diverse. There, the Nazis are raised with hatred of the Russians. And that's all at our fingertips. The question is when will this happen? And for me, we must start now, and not wait until it all grows, as in Syria.

          in syria, the nativity scene began not with an alien invasion, but with its own radicals chipped by an energy jiser from the standard oil and co,
          and we have enough of this good, and grown at the state’s expense, so don’t flatter yourself, in which case the Maidan will be only for seed and reinforcement, the cadres for the civilian are already fully trained in Russia itself, and there will be no shoulder to shoulder against hordes of external enemies , simply because these hordes are already paid inside.

                  "real" - only for themselves and their villages, this is the result of two Chechen and "wise policies in the Krasnodar Territory", "disguised" - for the one who will pay, I do not know about you, but the St. Petersburg "army" is ready to dig into the throat for money to anyone and to ourselves including, at any moment,
                  anyone may have a different opinion about all sorts of "paramilitary paramilitary organizations", but I see in St. Petersburg the tenth years of Kiev

                  ps The "real" and "mummers" in principle differ only in entry time and motives, the difference between the militia / obscure local self-defense groups / gangs of ethnic gangs that appeared in the wilds of lawlessness in the rural south, and the circus with horses pioneers and mercenaries in large cities - are fundamentally different

                    Calm down, dear hi I see you are advanced in the issue of the Cossacks and atamanism, you know everything about everyone, you are prepared in this matter, so to speak. Well, what do you say about the Swedes and on the topic in general? About Poltava is not necessary, we know this topic, success to you.

    The Americans didn’t bring their illiquid assets to the Swedes at the wrong time: they still didn’t recover from the proposal to participate in the launch of Ukrainian spaceships with money ...

      The Swedes, like themselves, do medium-range air defense systems ... The Baltic states were offered.
      Here, most likely, the principle works ...
      Do you want to be friends with us? Buy a patriot .. laughing

    Well, since it is said to buy, then they will buy!)
    Moreover, VESCH is simply necessary for the national economy of a "neutral" country))

      The states will remind them of both Poltava and the winter trip through the Baltic to Stockholm. Terrible Russians are near, and with the "patriot" you will be protected. Only this protection looks more like a leaky contraceptive during sex. hi

        Do you think that people who impose this “instrument” know history so well ??
        Many, from ordinary Americans, firmly believe that Norway is the capital of Sweden !! I myself would not have believed if I had not heard with my own ears !! laughing

    According to the logic of things, now the airspace of Sweden will begin to heavily violate aircraft of an incomprehensible country and they will definitely need the Patriot anti-aircraft missile system (MIM-104A).
    Whoever these aircraft belong to will blame Putin!

    Our shoot has ripened everywhere. Trying to suck in Patriots for cheap when the Swedes that year on Asters with Nasams dropped in. ̶K̶u̶p̶i̶l̶i̶, lobbied for their interests in the Ministry of Defense, and they refused bamse and they will buy MIM. Of course, patriots are better that more expensive than the enemy, all is well.
