Arméns Jägarbataljon, AJB, (in English, the Army Ranger battalion) also known by its old name Norrlands Dragoner or K 4 is a detachment of Norrbotten Regiment, I 19 and has its base in Arvidsjaur, in the Norrbotten county of Sweden.[1]

The Army Ranger Battalion is an elite light infantry unit trained to carry out reconnaissance missions and direct action behind enemy lines.

Since 2007 the battalion also has a mountain leader platoon which specializes in operations in and around mountainous and alpine terrain. This platoon has been of much use in Afghanistan since a lot of weapons, drugs and such get smuggled high up in the mountains in Afghanistan.

Members of the unit have served in Bosnia, Kosovo and Afghanistan.
