Informations

The Swedish Armed Forces, also known as Forsvarsmakten in Swedish, is the government agency responsible for forming the Armed Forces of Sweden. It has the responsibility of defending the country, as well as supporting international peacekeeping and humanitarian aid. It includes the Swedish Army, Air Force, and Navy. There is also a Home Guard military reserve force. All branches of the Swedish military have been unified under one government agency since 1994. The Supreme Commander is the head, but the services still retain their individual identities. The Swedish Armed Forces are made up of both conscripts and volunteers. The Swedish Armed Forces consist of a mix of conscripts and volunteers.



The Nordic Battlegroup also has the Swedish Armed Forces as the lead nation of an EU Battlegroup about once every three years. Sweden maintains close relations with NATO and NATO member countries and takes part in exercises such as the Admiral Pitka Recon Challenge and Exercise Trident Juncture 2018. Sweden has been cooperating with NATO and its members since the 1814 Swedish–Norwegian War. However, e.g. Swedish aircraft participated in the NATO-led military intervention in Libya in 2011. Through a policy neutrality, Sweden's foreign policy has managed not to get into war.
