Note 4

AB Förenade Flygverkstäder acronym AFF (≈ United Aviation Engineering Inc.) founded March 31 1937. The formation of the company was forced on the two owners below by the Swedish State.
Owned by ASJ AB and Nohab Bofors AB as a Holding company. The Swedish Government had an ambitious long-term plan to strengthen the military defence forces. The total number of military airplanes should increase to 257.
AFF was awarded government contract April 1937 to deliver all Swedish produced 165 airplanes (2/3 of 257) within 5 years to Swedish Defence Department.
AFFs task was to handle allocation of development work and production to the competing owners. The owner groups did not agree on how to cooperate.
Activities slowed dramatically in 1939, one of the few decisions the owners could easily agree on!
