Sweden will deploy its newest military helicopter, the American-built Sikorsky UH-60M Blackhawk, in Afghanistan from the first week of March 2013. It will be the first operational mission for the aircraft in Swedish military service, where it is known as Helikopter 16 (Hkp 16). A political and public debate about the role of the armed forces has been going on now in Sweden for several months. According to some experts the Swedish military is perfectly made to join in on foreign adventures with the Americans, the European Union or with NATO. But Försvarsmakten lacks the capabilities to defend the homeland for a long period. Sweden's commander-in-chief, general Sverker Göranson, said that his forces need help from neighbours after a week of combat. Question is of this help will ever arrive if it's needed, since Sweden is not part of NATO. Two of its neighbours, Norway and Denmark, are.
