The combined naval strength of Sweden and Finland

Earlier this week both Sweden and Finland agreed to cooperate together on a military level. Central in this cooperation is the creation of a joint naval task force and mutual access to each other’s naval bases. Aside from the Russian navy, the Swedish navy is already the most powerful in the Baltic Sea and yet, by teaming up with the Finnish navy it would further strengthen the Swedish navy as well as the Finnish.
The Baltic Defence blog made a more detailed overview of how the strength of both the Swedish and Finnish navies will evolve in the next decade as well as a discription of the strategic and tactical implications of this joint naval cooperation.
