The AIM-9J or RB24J in Sweden was first built in the US as an AIM-9B and delivered to Sweden in the early 1960's.

In the 1970's the front parts of these missiles where returned to the US to be upgraded into AIM-9J standard.

The Swedish Sidewinders where hence built in the US but the AIM-9J has later gotten a swedish built laser proximity fuze.

 

The Falcon missiles where all built under license in Sweden.

 

I also uploaded this image to Wikipedia and put it in the J35 Draken article as all these missiles where used on the J35F/J

 

These missiles are displayed at the small Missile museum in Arboga Sweden (not to be confused with Örebro)
