Coat of arms of Amfibiekåren.

Amfibiekåren (the Amphibious Corps) is the coastal defence arm of the Swedish Navy. Until 2000 it was known as Kustartilleriet (the Coastal Artillery), 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.

The Amphibious Battalion is the main combat unit of the Amphibious Corps. With its anti-ship missiles, controllable mines and kustjägare or naval infantry units it can exercise control in littoral areas.
