Swedish Sub in US Naval Exercises
The U.S. Navy wants to continue to use a Swedish submarine as the target in military exercises.
For the last year the HMS Gotland and its crew have been chased by the American navy off the U.S. west coast. The southern Swedish newspaper “Blekinge Läns Tidning” says the American authorities want to continue the training maneuvers for another year. The Swedish navy is reported to be positive to extending the exchange.
The Gotland is said to be special because its motors allow the sub to remain under the surface for very long periods.
