Nice! But some errors slipped in. "Claimed its independence from the Kingdom of Denmark." Yeah, right. It was a personal union like Austria-Hungary. "Two nations, one king." Sweden was never a part of Denmark. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalmar_Union

 

Sweden has a world record in peace. We haven't been in war since 14th Aug 1814. 

 

I feel that Fylgia, Gotland, Sverige and Tre Kronor all can fit into the game sometime in the future.

"neutral" is a correcter term, as they were rather sympathetic towards the Germans, which the British exploited during Operation Mincemeat.

Would be great to see a representative of the Sverige class in game, the Graf Spee provides for an interesting play style and would be fun to have another similar kind of ship.

Hi guys you forget one thing PORTUGAL was neutral in two ww

 

 

Little nitpick:

 

In WW1 Portugal was at war with Germany from March 1916. Portugal forces participated in combat in Western Front with around 55 000 men (about quarter of it's strength killed, wounded or taken prisoners). More than 8k Portuguese killed in total. Not much in WW1 scale, but still clear participation in war.

 

In WW2 Portugals East Timor was first occupied by Australian and Dutch forces and then by Japanese. Also in 1943/1944 Portugal allowed Allied to use Azores as an active military base, so not neutral. Not openly in war like in WW1, but pretty grey area. Much darker grey than with Sweden where German transit (which was breach on a strict neutrality) was quite restricted and no bases or combat operations were allowed.

 

Nothing wrong with Portugal actions, but not (strictly) neutral.

Lots of German tourists in North Sweden during WW2... popular resorts maybe..? :Smile_hiding:

It's funny, because if I recall correctly they all decided that South America was much nicer shortly thereafter. Maybe warmer weather came into fashion? :Smile_trollface:

Well, the part about Denmark needs to be edited real quick! Sweden, a part of Denmark? Never! :Smile_facepalm:

 

Don´t forget Göta Lejon, after all, she was essential during the Coup in Chile, 1973. Under her new name, Almirante Latorre, she turned the presidents palace to rubble...

Not only that but people forget there was a African front, people should read on Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck. And speaking of that, look up on NRP Augusto de Castilho and U-139 .

The "Sverige-class" ships are very interesting as they did not use traditional costac-defence-ship concept of a floating gun plattforms. Instead, althought in small scale, they where real sea-going warships with abilities to both control sea-trerritory facing most other warships, but also with the possibility to challenge an attacking fleet with bigger ships using the battle-group tactic developed for fighting in the Baltic and Kattegatt.

Altought smaller the Sverige-class was in the inter-war years by most naval experts considered a serious match for their bigger Russian/Soviet adversaries due to better tecnical level and better readiness/standard.

Some really nice pictures of the "Sverige-class" and their battle-group in action. Althought Swedish speaker the movie itself it gives a good picture of the tactics and strategy.

Great to see some history about the Swedish navy, Im really happy you got some ships into the game that Sweden did produce. 

Though, you forgot about the few modern cruisers we built that was really great:
