Excellent report. Almost essential reading. Given the subject, it's pretty easy to read i.e well organized. Thanks for posting. I designed a small scenario a few years ago in which Russia tries to capture Gotland and some systems and concepts I employed were in line with some of those in the report. Cool.

It’s confirmed this website is banned Hong Kong and China’s IP addresses. I can only view those links via VPN.

Still a good read to understanding Swedish perspectives.

Thank God for VPN. But more to the point, what does China care about the Baltic, unless of course they have the same or similar equipment as the Russians?

I think I played your scenario a while ago as Sweden. Fun. I remember flying a pair of Gripens a ways offshore Kaliningrad at high altitude to bait the Russians. Finally they fell for it and launched a couple of these new SAMs everyone is talking about (S-400 I believe). I also had a Swedish AWACS-type aircraft orbiting over Swedish territory at high altitude so as to cover the Russian coastline. They detected the SAMs right away so I turned the Gripens around, switched on AB and flew them toward Gotland at wavetop level. The SAMs followed all the way to Gotland and then gave it up and must have crashed in a turnip field or something.

Naval doctrines. Hence A2/AD, even though most analysts find Chinese A2/AD is more worrisome than Russian’s, it is still worth to know how Russians did it, especially on iced sea.

A very interesting article.

Who really knows what the S-400 can do?
