Tactical development in the Swedish surface warfare in the period 1950-1969 (English)
Abstract [sv]

I början av 1950-talet utvecklades en idé att flottan skulle bli lättare. Detta berodde delvis på ekonomiska faktorer samt att flottans större system såsom pansarskepp började bli föråldrade. Den tekniska utvecklingen bidrog även till att system som radarn gjorde intrång. Sjömålsroboten och den trådstyrda torpeden kunde skjutas från mindre plattformar vilket gjorde det möjligt med en lättare flotta. Hotet vid denna tid sågs som Sovjetunionen. Ytstridskrafterna skulle i händelse av krig vara beredda att möta en starkare motståndares landstigningsoperationer. Denna uppsats undersöker vissa områden av den taktiska utvecklingen som skedde under denna period. Detta görs genom en textanalys av litteratur på ämnet. Analysen behandlar områden som hotbild, teknik samt egna sjöstridskrafter, organisation samt uppgifter. Slutsatser som dragits är bl.a. tekniken utvecklades i snabb takt och spelade stor roll. Hotbilden var viktig vid utformandet av egen doktrin och strategi vilket ledde till förändringar inom taktiken. Egna sjöstridskrafters utveckling hämmades av ekonomiska styrningar vilket ledde till att kompromisser fick göras som påverkade kvaliteten på enheterna.

Abstract [en]

In the early fifties the Swedish Navy wanted to get lighter. This development took place mostly because of economical factors and the fact that bigger ships in the navy was getting old. Important systems such as radar were implemented in the Swedish Navy. The ship to ship missile and the wire guided torpedo could be fired from smaller vessels and this contributed to the development. The Soviet union was regarded as the main threat and the Swedish surface warfare units would in warface a stronger opponent and try to prevent him from landing on Swedish shores. This study tries to examine certain areas within the subject tactical development during this period. This is made by analyzing literature in the subject. The analyze is conducted in three predefined areas. The areas are: Threats, technological advances and own surface warfare units and their organisation and tasks. Some of the main conclusions are that the technology advanced in a rapid pace and was vital to the development of tactics. The threat of the Soviet union made differences in the naval doctrine and strategy which made changes in tactics. Economical factors forced the Swedish Navy to compromise when building new ships which affected the quality of the units.
