Six months from now Sweden’s contribution to the European Union’s Rapid Reaction Force is due to be in place, ready for deployment in conflict zones throughout the world.

Sweden’s Nordic Battle Group however lacks equipment to fulfill its mission with training also being hit, according to a report by Swedish Radio.

The 2,400 strong group lacks key materiel such as communication equipment, armoured vehicles, supply trucks, helicopters and uniforms.

From the first of January next year the Swedish force must be ready to deploy with ten days’ notice anywhere within a 6,000 kilometer radius from Brussels.
