    Wow, the site is really beautiful. If you scroll down you will see that the man who made the page has walked the Four Days' March of Nijmegen twice! This is one of the most popular and intensive sportive events in the Netherlands, also widely known to military units from all over the world who walk it as part of their training. :grin:

    i didn't know that the Swedish army used the MG-42 (MG-3) :eek:

    it's amazing how this design survived this long, it's been in service for over 60 years now...

    They´re still used for training in Norway as well. No wonder though, since the Germans left literally thousands of them behind when the war ended.

    That's a very impressive army for a neutral nation. When was the last time Sweden fought a war?

    I don´t think they ( officially at least ) have fought a war for more than 200 years. I believe we invaded them sometime in the 1780´s btw. :grin:

    Most of the time they invaded us, so I guess we owed them one.

    But now I have to moderate myself, we´re going seriously off topic here. :eek: :wink:

    The last battle the swedes fought was in 1813 at Leipzig against Napoléon.

    I have seen some strange concrete boxes in Sweden, next to the road from Luleå to Haparanda. I've been told that they are self-propelled roadblocks. Can someone verify this?
