Mali. Advisors training the Malian Army





Skaraborg Wing (F 7)

Monday, April 15, a Hercules crew from Skaraborg Wing transport a fire truck from F17 in Ronneby to Visby. That was at least what they thought. But the journey was just a way to keep a secret training mission for the crew. Instead, they received orders to under time pressure transporting wounded soldiers from Skovde to Såtenäs.

Air defense regiment (Lv 6)

Robot 97 Easy Company from Lv 6 squirmed a joint march up to Vidsel in Norrbotten County the week before Easter. Up in Vidsel waited not just a snow-covered landscape, biting cold and winter training, but they were also practicing sharp shooting robot.
