Defence force pictures

Today when I was walking past the town square here in Växjö I was quick to notice all the people and nice looking equipment and vehicles.
At the town square was a gathering of help and defense organizations and people. There were the police, fireforce, sea rescue and so on but most interesting for me was the military engineering vehicles . As I made my military service in an Enginering company those things got an special place in my hart. I was more into mining and destruction then these here that were more into fixing things up instead.

 These pictures could come in handy for future painting and converting references and though I should share these with you to.

 Notice the chains for snowy or muddy terrain.

 Military firetruck
I really liked this tractor

What a beast.. Enginering variant of an Leopard 2

 Rear end of the Sisu, referencses for stripes and warning colours. Notice the orange emergency light ontop of the vehicle.
 Paint chipping reference... ;)

That is a lot of muscle power...

More paintchipping reference...

Giving the lady back her handbag

Mines... in the sand behind they had mineclearing. The kids could test an metall detector and was later awarded and choclade gold coin upon suceeding.

Now about those Engineering vehicles... damn I must get me a couple of those for my Imperial Guards in 40k...


  1. The support arms never seem to get as much love in the games do they? Lovely bit of kit.

  2. That's some seriously impressive hardware, lovely reference photographs.

  3. As a former member of the swedish royal engineers I really miss the time in the service.Its a pity I was not at location when the demonstration occured in Wexio.Thankyou for sharing.
