Yes, the cancelation of Harpoon was in the last minute and even the C-in-C of the navy was furious with the polititians. The RBS15 was a quick development by SAAB of airforce Rb04E in to RB04 Turbo later Rb15. It took just 6 months and the airforce and navy finnaly got a common missile. No one regre...

How the Spica I torpedoboats might have looked if they where modernized in the same way as Spica II/ Norrköping class. Proposal 1. With Harpoon which the navy prefeered in the late 70s. The purchade of Harpoon was canceled in favor of Rb15 to much dislike by the navy. Proposal 2. With Rb15 as the Ys...

A very interesting concept, but is flawed in many ways. One thing which stands out is the low level of the bridge, hence a low flying operations view point. This will hamper the flying operations, as the personnel won't be able to look at the whole flight deck, which may results in accidents. Also ...

A couple of years ago some very odd blueprints where found by some naval enthusiast in the Swedish war archives - an aircraft carrier, carrying DH SeaVampaires J28S. There was lots of discussions within the community regarding why, what is this and so on. The blueprints where declassified in 1984(!)...

Yes, indeed.
The Gotland was to much cut down to be an effective warship. I would have removed the aft gun turret and saved the two in front for a larger aircraft accomodations. It would have been intresting to see the original hangarkryssare survive into the helicopter age aswell.

The "Hangarkryssare" was considered to expensive and a more ordinary cruiser was selected. This is the original plan for the Gotland, before she was cut down due to economics once again. In 1926 the swedish government issued an investigation regarding new ships for the navy. The interest in aircraft...

The interest in aircraft was high but their preformance was poor so they had to be brought woth the fleet, not capable of operating from shore bases. So they planned an aircraftcarrying cruiser "hangarkryssare" ...
