Cheers Jaye.

I'm very proficient at "foul". Other than that most languages are a mystery to me. That's how come I'm about to pay more than £10 for a Kraken from Denmark. Lack of knowledge of the language and me being somewhat out of touch with the current £ to $ exchange rates. (it's a rather long story!)

Far from litteral translation. I had to look up a few words and I guessed a few from the context of the rest of the sentence.
Translation from Swedish wrote: Here comes Action Force!

The battle between Action Force and Cobra takes place far away in the future.

The worlds nations live in peace with each other under leadership of a world government.

Then a terrorgroup called Cobra starts a series of attacks at various places in the world. They are lead by the evil-minded Cobra Commander, who wants to have power over all the nations in the world. Cobra's headquarters lies in the evil empire situated somewhere on the globe.

The worldgovernment calls for Action Force, a group of brave and strong superfighters. Their mission if to find the evil empire and to take prisoner Cobra's henchmen, so that they can question them in the world counsel.

But, will Action Force succeed in taking prisoner Cobra's reckless henchmen or the evil Cobra Commander?

Wow - thanks Jaye.

That's pretty interesting. Very Scandinavian - the mission being to 'take them captive for questioning'. Not just to kick their candy asses into oblivion!

Like I said, it might be a little different. Some translations are a 'best guess'.

Wait!

svar = to answer

...so that they can answer the World Council.
...so that they can be brought to justice at the World Council.

Or summick like that, -ish.

Still a far cry from the old days of Z Force just wanting to kill all Shadows!!! The jointed AF were wusses!

Thanks again.

It's very similar to the German Red Shadow story though. Set in the future, one world government, kill only when necessary, etc. Was this the same in the Netherlands, Jaye?

As fas as I can remember the background story of Action Force was identical to UK.
