Sweden deploys mothballed Cold War missile launchers to Baltic Sea front lineSweden is taking mothballed Cold War missile launchers out of storage in museums to shore up the defenses on its Baltic Sea front line, according to The Times.

Sweden is not a member of NATO, is sending the land-based Kustrobotbatteri 90 to its former stronghold on the island of Gotland, The Times reports.

The Scania launcher lorries, built in 1987, were developed for the Saab Robotsystem 15 (RBS-15) anti-ship missile system but only one of four planned batteries was delivered before Swedens coastal artillery was taken out of service in 2000.
