Explanation:
SAVAK is comparatively unknown and the Swedish Airforce is asleep early on a Sunday morning I'm afraid.
I'll come back on that.
Eskaderstab is the operative center of the SWAF. At sea eskader=squadron.
In the AF a squadron is a fightung unit comprising three divisions (eac 8-9 aircraft).
How to translate eskader I'll try to find out as well.
