The Swedish Air Force has recently withdrawn from active service the remaining Airbus Helicopters AS332 Super Puma helicopters. 12 of the helicopter locally designated as HKP10 were inducted between 1988 and 1995 to execute a wide range of missions including search and rescue, MEDEVAC and transport. Six of the remaining helicopters were put for sale. Three aircraft were reportedly lost.

The HKP10 is being replaced by NHIndustries NH90 (HKP14 in Swedish service) and Sikorsky Aircraft UH-60M Black Hawk (designated HKP16 by Sweden) helicopters.
