I think I read somewhere that the upcoming MMP release of Swedish Volunteers is not going to be available from
retailers but instead only available direct from MMP.

Does anyone know if this is true or not? Certainly if it is then that could be problematic for me, living in the UK
the shipping and customs duty on buying direct from the States is kind of expensive

Will this be straight reprint of the SV pack from several years ago?

The announcement says that there are 16 scenarios - the original only had 14 - so at least two new scenarios are in there.
The extra scenarios are too few for me to contemplate buying the reprint as i own a copy already. However, since it is a good product, those who don't have it yet may consider a purchase.

Still, to be an "official" product it is a must buy. Once it´s sold out it will be gone for a loooong time i guess.

Probably so.

But it would be a PITA if it would not be available by retailers, because then, for the Europeans especially, huge shipment costs and customs (on the product price AND shipment costs) can kick in which might effectively double the price of the product if it is similar to the Winter Offensive type offerings which would probably apply to the Swedish Volunteers.

Or, are the two new scenarios reprints of Swedish scenarios from Friendly Fire?

There are a few of those...

There's are only two FrF scenario featuring Swedish troops. One of them, FrF3, was already included in the original SV.

Will the original SV scenarios receive any changes or balance tweaks?

It has been preordained by lipreading the faces on Mars!

Now you are opening up a whole other area of past interest for me. I can reccomend The Mars Mystery by Graham Hancock. His Fingerprints of the Gods got me back into the genre after about a 15 year absence due to SL/ASL. Good stuff.
