The Swedes in Space!

Just a short entry as I play around a bit with creating a new faction for my Tomorrow's War project, using 2300 A.D. as a guide...the Scandinavian Union Defense Force.

Taking a hard look at the Ground Zero Games Scandinavian pack, and after obtaining a bit of info as to what the figures in that pack are actually carrying in terms of small arms (as you can see from the picture it is a bit difficult to discern what the figures truly look like), I have decided to add a cold weather force to my science fiction gaming.  

The SUDF is organized into 28 man platoons, built on eight man sections with a command element of four men.  Each eight man section has a section leader, five riflemen, a SAW (or MG) gunner, and a man carrying a missile launcher.  Weapons are as follows:

G4 7mm Binary Assault Rifle (Gevär Model 4)
MG4 7mm Binary General Purpose Machine Gun (Maskingevär Model 4)
PM 7 Pilen Man-Portable Guided Anti-Tank Missile (Pansarvärnmissil 7)

Weapons and organization from the Etranger site.

For vehicles I am going to go with the Chariot tracked APC (also from GZG).  I like the look and each should hold a half section.  It will be called the Stridsvagn.

  1. I use the same figures as Finns, but what ever way you go they are nice figures.

    1. Do you happen to have any pictures of your Finns? The small picture from the GZG just isn't doing it for me and I would like to see them a bit more clearly.
