The Lyrics

In the late 1940's work was started on getting Sweden nuclear weapons, which studies showed would be technically and economically feasible. In 1952 Saab started designing an aircraft with long range, large weapon load and high speed as 'Project 1300', which later were given the Air Force designation A-36, although it was never built. Model 1300-76C was equipped with a single seat, straight delta wing with 62 degrees sweepback, chin intake and internal weapon bay. (the latter only because of concerns about accidental detonation due to the high temperatures air friction would cause). Primary weapon would be a Bofors-built 600-800 kg free fall nuclear weapon. Rumored codename was "Sauron". There was also a slightly shorter alternative version 1300-77A with the dorsal air intake. The project was cancelled in 1957 and all resources concentrated on Viggen. However, it wasn't until 1966 parliament finally decided Sweden wasn't going to get nuclear weapons. Model 1300-76C Length: 17 m Span: 9,6 m Wing area: 54 square meters Empty weight: 9000 kg Max load: 1500 kg Fuel: 4000 kg Max take off weight: 15000 kg Engine: Bristol Olympus Thrust/weight ratio (take off): 0,73 Max speed: Mach 2,14 above 11 km; mach 1,2 at low altitude Radius of action: 410 km Ceiling: 18 km Take off run: 490 m
Aircraft: Saab A-36
A ‘50s project, feelings mixed
Range, large load, high speed- no risk
Swedish nuke- Bofors had been picked

Single-seat, delta wing planned
Weapon: 800 kilograms
Free-fall bomb o’er Slavic land
This Cold War nuke was in demand

Sauron, Sauron
Swedish nuke bomb
Sauron, Sauron
Fierce debate on

Aircraft design was picked
1300-76
Second design choice was nixed
‘57 both aircraft licked (by Viggen)

Bofors studies were in hand
Continued on, mil-spec demands
“Demon” of Sweden fires fanned
‘66 Parliament- nuke banned

Sauron, Sauron
Swedish nuke bomb
Sauron, Sauron
Fierce debate on

Liberals won…

Sauron, Sauron, with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone... into Mordor. It is folly.

IIRC, Bofors would have called it Surte which is the same as Sauron- the Norse Fire God/Demon. It also is a Swedish town that specialized/es in glassworks, the fires of which burned night & day!
