>As of March 2023, the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration intends to buy the M23 in both 5.56 and 7.62 variants of different barrel lengths, as part of a larger project to replace their current small arms inventory.[5] The 5.56 personal defense weapon (SSV 24) will have a 11.5 inch barrel, an Aimpoint CompM5 red-dot sight and Magpul furniture.[9] The introduction of the 5.56 variant will start in 2025, and the 7.62 variants will begin seeing service in 2026. The 5.56 PDW variant with an 11.5" barrel will replace the current Swedish inventory of Ak 5D carbines and other PDWs, while the infantry 7.62 rifle (16" or 18") will replace existing Ak 5C rifles and Ak 4B/C rifles. The 7.62 marksman variant (18" or 20") will replace the Ak 4D DMR.

    More to the point, why would you get a new 7.62mm rifle when 6.8mm gives you better ballistics at lower weight and the US has already adopted it meaning supply issues aren't nearly as much of an issue?

        First you must be a NATO for the STANAG to apply. And you're not. And secondly... STANAG is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules.

      My theory is that with Puccia getting uppity, and EU industry so anemic, the Euros are subconsciously synchronizing a bit more with their bail-out, the US.

    Yes, but also no
    Both Finland and Sweden have massive archipelagos which have and will be battlegrounds, and in those conditions you want to be the one who shoots the fastest or hits the heaviest.
    The argument between .223 and .308 in the forests is the age old "US bullets bouncing off Vietnam foliage"-meme which has kept Finland on 7,62x39
    Swedens been on the 5,56 train for a while now, and most reservist guns in Finland are .223 ARs.

      >-meme
      if you call it a meme you clearly have no idea what you're talking about
      go shoot innaforest more if you live in a region with dense brush
      there's also one similar thing that noguns or rangelards often miss which is snow deflection
      a surprisingly small amount of snow can frick up the trajectory of a bullet
      but it's diminished significantly between 7.62 and 5.56 just like brush deflection
      even if you don't hit any snow, if you happen to be shooting from a prone position above hardened snow it'll be like shooting barrel flat against a table; the point of impact will change like you had the most fricked up muzzle device
      and again, heavier bullets are less affected
      ultimately as a logistics gay I think the nato compatibility is a good trade-off for a worse primary cartridge and for the most part lighter ammo meaning more ammo will counteract the reduced effectiveness for the most part

      The Army actually tested this and found that .223 does fine in foliage. Soldiers were just missing and blaming their equipment as usual.

    Sweden has plenty of open areas too, you know. As well as mountains, and a whole coast of archipelagos. Rated as 69% forest coverage, in fact.

    A 5.56mm carbine with 11.5 inch barrel being standard issue is moronic even if a lot of guys have 7.62mm NATO rifles.

      The 5.56mm will not be standard issue apparently. It will be issued to dog handlers, vehicle crews, MPs and the like.

      no its not. you can hit targets at 600 yards out of a 10.5 so an 11.5 should be even more accurate

    When the Bundeswehr switched to 5.56 with the G36, I talked to soldiers about what they thought the biggest difference to the G3 was. Their reply was "We can't shoot through trees anymore".

    So turns out countries full of woods n shit tend to prefer 7.62, not really a surprise

    Against who? Russia? Did they even watch the Ukraine war. If they want more funding say so but to paint up Russia as some threat again after being revealed to be absolutely incompetent is crazy. Even Finns were asking wth are the Swedes doing.
