The Amphibious Corps (Swedish: Amfibiekåren, Amf) is the infantry marines arm of the Swedish Navy, with an emphasis on coastal defence. Until 2000 it was known as the Coastal Artillery (Swedish: Kustartilleriet), but the name was changed to reflect its different role in a post-Cold War world, where its amphibious special operations arm, Kustjägarna, has grown in significance while its coastal batteries have been decommissioned.
