Sweden's military has announced that if it finds a suspect foreign vessel in the Stockholm archipelago, it is prepared to force it to the surface "with weapons if necessary".

Battleships, minesweepers, helicopters and more than 200 troops are scouring an area about 30 to 60 kilometres from the Swedish capital after a "man-made" and foreign object was spotted in the waters.

"The most important value of the operation - regardless of whether we find something -- is to send a very clear signal that Sweden and its armed forces are acting and are ready to act when we think this kind of activity is violating our borders," Supreme Commander General Sverker Göranson said.

"Our aim now is to force whatever it is up to the surface... with armed force, if necessary," he added.

He added that submarines are "extremely difficult" to find, and that Sweden has never succeeded in the past when it came to tracking them down.
...

On Friday 200 troops were deployed on the water and on the nearby coasts, making the investigation the biggest domestic operation for Sweden since the Cold War.

The Svenska Dagbladet newspaper revealed that Swedish intelligence had intercepted a distress call sent out from the archipelago to a base in the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad. This led experts to suggest that a damaged Russian submarine may be in the area.
