Few systems have had such a troubled coming of age as the Hkp 14, the Swedish versions of the not-exactly-troublefree NH90. The short straw has been drawn by the Hkp 14E of the 1. Squadron which is operating in the transport role in Northern Sweden, with the unit having suffered from low availability as the maritime-focused Hkp 14F has had priority for spares and personnel. Still, it is a competent platform when it flies, and the CSAR helicopter of choice of the Swedish Armed Forces. And it is always an awesome looking beast (check out WHITEFOX on Instagram if in doubt). Picture source: David Carr/Försvarsmakten

Does the Finnish Air Force have a RAF Regiment type force to guard air bases and road runways
Yes, the Air Force has a significant number of similar units that mobilises in case of war.
