Fokker G.I for Sweden

Sweden ordered 18 Fokker G.I to serve as S 13 recoinnasance planes in March 1940. They were to have been delivered in full in November 1940.

Sweden had:
Artillery
AT guns
Tanks and armoured cars
AA guns
Iron ore (we were not self-sufficient in steel until a new steel mill was completed in LuleƄ in 1943)
Copper
Led

I am sure we would have been willing to part from some of these - we sent some strategic raw materials to Italy as part payment for Re.2000 and Cr.42bis fighters and Ca.313 bombers in late 1940 anyway.

If the Dutch could send oil, rubber, food and airplanes, we would have been game, I am sure.
