General information on Swedish missiles


Towards the end of the World War, Sweden was abruptly reminded of the fighting in the surrounding world, when six German V-1 ”guided bombs” accidentally crashed in southern Sweden. They had been launched from the German rocket base at Peenemünde. The remains from these wrecks gave valuable information to our technicians for the production of our own guided missiles, at first at the SAAB company and from 1949 at the Swedish Defense Workshop in Arboga. This type of missile was called “robot” in Swedish. “robot” in Swedish.


The museum displays the previous top secret information during the past half-century. This is also a significant part of the industrial history of Arboga.This museum is unique in Sweden (and possibly in the world entire).
