Information in English
WE DO NOT SELL OR DEAL WITH ANY MILITARY EQUIPMENT!
SoldF.com is an UNOFFICIAL NON-PROFIT INFORMATION PURPOSE ONLY site
about the weapons, vehicles and equipment in the Swedish Armed Forces.
All services at SoldF.com are free.
The purpose of SoldF.com is to describe the equipment used in the Swedish
Armed Forces to the public. The main target groups are those who soon
will enter their conscription service and those who have a general interest
in such equipment. With personal opinions, about the equipment, SoldF.com
is not just another arms catalogue publishing factory data. We apologize
that the information only is available in Swedish. Translating the whole
domain into English would be a very time consuming task and is not planned
at the moment.
Most pages are written by former users of the specific item who are
allowed to have personal opinions and point out good and bad things
about it. This makes SoldF.com much more alive and interesting. SoldF.com
does not cover every little item in the Swedish Armed Forces, but the
most interesting equipment. The information is held short and often
linked to specialized sites dedicated to the equipment in question.
This makes SoldF.com easier to read without getting lost in small details,
which the average user is not interested in, but also a good portal
for visitors who have a more advanced and specific interest.
The most popular items are usually the more basic soldier equipment,
i.e. a description about a rucksack or a hat generally raises much more
attention from the visitors than a main battle tank or helicopter. Probably
because there are many existing sites about the advanced equipment and
also that the visitor usually have personal experience with the simple
The message board, SoldF Forum, is now by far the most popular part
of SoldF.com. The SoldF Forum has over 6,000 registered members(July 2007), and
many more non-registered reading guests. Many members are very skilled
and almost all questions concerning the Swedish Military can be answered
in just a few hours.
There are some plans to make an international area of the forum for
international visitors to ask questions. The forum has an English interface
which can be selected in the user preferences once registered and it
is ok to ask questions in English.
The majority of the members are Swedes but there should not be a problem
to speak English with them.

SoldF.com also has a free live chat. Although the main conversation
is in Swedish, it shouldn't be a problem talking English to the people
in the chat.
Most visitors are online in the chat between 9 PM -1 AM (GMT), but there
are people present almost 24-7.
