These ships where one of the biggest reasons germany decided against invading Sweden. Most people dosent know about these ships i a bet. Sweden had some more coastal defence ships and so did several outhere nations aswell. Hope you enjoyed reading it;)
PS get that eu forum up and going for us sea going warriors!

Considering the NA Forums are openly saying that they will be sending invites to Test servers for world of battleships, I too would like to ask when we will see EU forums for World of Battleships. Keenly waiting and interested in playing it ASAP

I will be getting this ship back as remembrance to my fallen generations.

I also had lots of other family members some in newspapers famous who sank german uboats and retrieved secret documents and things like that maybe once the the forums are up i will post the news paper articles or show you who served in the british navy at the time.

My family have amazing army service history you would be amazed how many connections they have.

Sverige Class
the 3 ships of the Sverige Class (Sverige, Drottningen Victoria and Gustav V) were built by Sweden to increase the enemies (Primarily Russia) risk in an invasion of Sweden by forcing them to deploy their own battleships to counter this class.
Sverige was paid for by public donations, whilst the other two ships were paid for by the Government.
Sverige was commissioned in 1917 whilst the others were finished in 1921 and 1922 respectively. The other 2 ships were slightly longer than Sverige and were equipped with 2 shafts rather than Sverige's 4 with different machinery as well.  Drottningen Victoria and Gustav V also had ice-breaking stems rather than rams.
All three ships looked significantly different from each other after modernisation: Gustav V's 2 funnels were combined into a single one, Sverige received an S-shaped fore funnel whilst Drottningen Victoria retained her 2 upright funnels, each's fire control directories differed along with their Anti Aircraft armament.
