It was the messages on Monday when the armed Forces took to the stage at the People and Defence national conference in Sälen.
this year is the armed Forces more than halfway into it now regarding this proposal, which was made in 2015 and extending over the years 2016-2020. The extra supplementation if 18 billion to the defense budget that the riksdag decided on the means to them panikbesparingar can be avoided.
– the Current food will be continued, promised the head of the armed forces council management staff Jonas Haggren from the podium of the Seal.
not that everything is peace and joy. Försvarsbeslutets goal on the two back into service brigades in the army of 2020 will not be reached, but where one is delayed.
The economic contribution that the defence may mean that the number of conscripts can increase by 1,000 to 5,000 next year. To meet the cyber-attack to be the first inductees cybersoldaterna trained, 30 pieces. And the older team robot 70/90, which was in mothballs in 2004, is now re-inserted in the army.
in 2020, there should be a new five-year food and the basis for it is already the 14th of may of this year. Then, the government's försvarsberedning, where all parliamentary parties are included, adding its proposal for how the defense will be developed in the years 2021-2025, but with the perspective until 2030.
– In line with the developments required additional resources, " says the commander in chief Micael Bydén which point to external armor, placing greater demands on the defence – certainly gets better.
the Swedish defense bantades in the 2000s to only cope with small international operations. In order to defend the Swedish territory to the armed Forces for small numbers to be krigsavhållande and raise the threshold for a possible attacker.
But it was said purely out as presented in Sälen, the expansion that the defense are now considering. It emerged from the presentations that the army, air force and navy managers did, and apparently discussed with the committee.
• Army be extended from two to three brigades (a brigade is a anfallsförband with around 4,000 soldiers). Brigades in Skövde and Boden are completed by a third trained in Revinge in Skåne. The regiment on the island of Gotland be extended to a battle group. A second battle group for the mälar region is built up with a base in Gloucester.
According to what the DN experience is becoming the new brigades smaller than today's. But on the other hand, added to the number of features (as trängförband), which requires many conscripts.
• air force which today consists of six divisions be extended to eight. This means that the current fleet of 95 Gripen is growing. The new numerären, according to flygvapenchefen Mats Helgessons like, will be on the 120 plan with a mixed fleet of existing Gripen C/D, and the 60 ordered more modern Gripen E.
there will be base - and resources. Two new divisions can mean that the Uppsala again get a wing.
• Navy to ensure the shipping to Sweden, and monitor large sea areas today have ships that were built in the beginning of the 1980s.
– Several ships go in overtime 2025, said marinchefen Jens Nykvist.
building new ships takes years, and the decision should, in the marinchefen be taken already now. He wishes 6-8 new ytstridsfartyg, new stridsbåtar to has been deployed and new support vessels.
But if the defense gives the go-ahead for new ships and a new amfibieregemente for the west coast is today very unclear, according to DN's sources.
the is the defence main branches of the armed services with the 22,000 soldiers – but in spite of that no mention was made of the future from the podium.
