In August 2018, Sweden has announced a contract to buy the Patriot air defense missile system from U.S. arms manufacturer Raytheon Co. The deal includes four firing systems and two types of missiles as well as other equipment and training, with delivery completed before 2025.

"Sweden's Patriot procurement will provide joint training opportunities for the Swedish and U.S. armed forces, and enhance military interoperability," said Tom Laliberty, vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business. "Patriot is continually modernized, providing Sweden the world's most advanced and capable air and missile defense system."

Patriot is the backbone of Europe's defense against advanced aircraft, drones, and ballistic and cruise missiles. Fifteen other nations depend on Patriot to protect their citizens and armed forces, including the U.S. and six other European nations: Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Spain, Romania and Poland.
