Pansarvärnshelikoptrar: Ett instrument för manöverkrigföring?

Anti-tank helicopters : A means for maneuver warfare? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Mellan år 1987 och 2000 fanns ett beväpnat helikopterförband inom arméflyget. Dessa två pansarvärnshelikopterkompanier användes för att bekämpa stridsfordon. Efter nedläggningen har Sverige inte haft en helikopter med beväpning för annat än egenskydd.

Uppsatsen syftar till att utifrån William S. Linds teori om manöverkrigföring utvärdera om pansarvärnshelikopterkompanierna framgångsrikt bidrog till att besegra motståndaren.

Det framkommer att pansarvärnshelikopterkompaniernas taktik väl stämmer överrens med Linds teori vilket pekar på att bestyckade helikoptrar är ett mycket användbart instrument inom manöverkrigföringen. 

Abstract [en]

Between 1987 and 2000 there was an armed helicopter unit in the Swedish armed forces. These two anti-tank helicopter companies where used to destroy armored vehicles. After the companies disbandment there has been no helicopter in the Swedish armed forces with any armament except for self protection.

The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the Swedish anti-tank helicopter companies, based on William S. Lind’s theory of maneuver warfare.

In conclusion, the tactics of the anti-tank helicopter companies correlate to a great deal with the theory of Lind, implicating that armed helicopters are very useful within maneuver warfare.
