    Anyone have info. concerning Swedish AA gunners firing on foreign military aircraft, in order to protect Sweden's sovereignty ?

    Nothing specific but I recall many Bomber crews reporting having been fired on by Swedish batteries if they strayed too close to the border. Almost every one made mention that the fire was inaccurate and seemed to be more of a deterrent and a display of sovereignty.
