The Sjøforsvaret Marineinfanteriet - SJF Marineinfanteriet (Kalmar Union Marine Infantry) is a division sized corps within the Sjøforsvaret responsible for providing amphibious warfare from the sea utilizing naval platforms and resources. It is fully integrated into the Sjøforsvaret structure.

The SJF Marineinfanteriet is an elite corps, highly specialised in amphibious warfare, that is, to project an amphibious force onto a hostile, or potentially hostile, coast. Its ability to embark on a short term notice with (land, air and naval) Navy assets, makes it a unit with a high strategic value. Adding to this a high degree of training, and the capability to deploy swiftly in international waters, results in a potent disuasory force available at a short notice in distant regions.
