Interestingly Sweden was once one of the greatest military powers in Europe and it had armies led by [[WarriorPrince Warrior Princes]] like Gustavus Adolphus and [[UsefulNotes/CarolusRex Charles XII]]. Its domination of the iron cannon industry in the 17th century arguably helped. Also note that in spite of a 200-year old policy of neutrality (now arguably abolished in practice through the Lisbon Treaty, among other things) Sweden has been very active in peacekeeping operations throughout the latter part of the 20th century. Notable contributions include The Congo Crisis in the 60's, Kosovo 90's to present, Sudan/Chad in the early 00's and Afghanistan and anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden today. [[note]]In the case of the Congo Crisis, and Afghanistan, it should be noted that the Swedish Military is/was practically not involved in "peacekeeping" but [[AttackAttackAttack "peacemaking",]] which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Swedish troops in Afghanistan served (Swedens official commitment to Afghanistan ended in 2014) under the banner of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Security_Assistance_Force ISAF]] who were authorized by the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations but not lead by them. ISAFs main job was "security missions" and not peacekeeping. [[/note]]

Unlike Norway and Denmark, but in company with Finland, Sweden is not a member of UsefulNotes/{{NATO}}. She does however have a ''Memorandum of Understanding'' with NATO, which in practice means that Sweden [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute allows NATO to use her territory for military excercises, mobilization and even the use of Swedish military personell in various hotspots around the world.]] (See the note under the blurb about peacekeeping, above.)

Marines. Swedens answer to ElitesAreMoreGlamorous is SOG or "Särskilda Operationsgruppen" [[note]]Special Operations Team. Roughly comparable to Delta Force, in that they are an elite for the elites, with everything about them being highly hush-hush.[[/note]]

"Flygande Tunnan" was given it's swansong in the Congo Crisis of the 1960's, when Swedish fighter pilots engaged in dogfights for the first time since the UsefulNotes/WinterWar.

Wether or not Sweden should join UsefulNotes/{{NATO}} properly, is currently undergoing heated debate. Many people see it as inevitable, while others stress the need to avoid pissing off UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} too badly.

*The loading screens for the european missions of ''Videogame/WorldInConflict'' show that the Soviets launched an invasion of Sweden with amphinious landings in the south and an attack from occupied Finland in the north. Stockholm has fallen to the Soviets but most of the country remains free with the Swedes fighting back.
