There will probably be ships from smaller nations as either one large tree or a number of smaller trees (IMHO the latter is more likely) so present ships that you like from these nations here eg. mr3awsome, on 21 August 2012 - 06:34 PM, said: Sverige Classthe 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.
