Swedish Defence Materiel Administration

Operator Profile

History

Narrative Summary

Swedish Defence Materiel Administration is a government agency tasked with supplying weapons and equipment to the Swedish Armed Forces. It is a department of the Ministry of Defence, and not a unit of the Swedish Air Force. As such it is comparable to the French Direction générale de l’armement or the British (pre-privatisation) Qinetiq.

The history of this organisation goes back to 1926, when an Aviation Board (Flygstyrelsen) was established to oversee equipment purchases for the just formed Swedish Air Force. In 1936 the Aviation Board was renamed the Royal Aviation Administration (Kungliga Flygforvaltningen), and expanded to comparable status with the already existing Army and Navy Administration organisations. In 1968 the Army, Navy and Aviation Administrations were merged into a single Defence Materiel Administration.

Key Dates:
1926    Aviation Board established
1 July 1936    Aviation Board renamed Royal Aviation Administration
1 July 1968    Swedish Defence Materiel Administration formed

Current Status

The FMV is responsible for the program management, development and purchase of all weapon systems for the Swedish Armed Forces.

Future Plans

Manage the development and introduction into RSwedAF service of the JAS 39E Gripen.

Markings

National Insignia

FMV aircraft carry the standard Swedish national markings – i.e. the three crowns roundel. Some aircraft carry SWEDISH AIR FORCE titles, even though they are not in fact service aircraft.

Aircraft Serial Numbers

FMV aircraft follow the Swedish military serial numbering system, which consists of a five or six-figure number. The the first two or three numbers being the aircraft type designation number, and the remaining three numbers an individual identity number, which normally starts at 001 for each type, e.g. JAS 39C 39230.

Aircraft

Aircraft Designations
