  1. The best i could find after a quick search was 1600-1830 hard limit though 1690-1790 preferred. Which means Kronan is just barely outside the preferred.
  2. Well, there aint alot online about the Hemmema frigates, i have thought myself of contacting them about Kronan and one of the larger Hemmemas. But it would be good if you could.
  3. Denna tråd är alltid så intressant eftersom att man får öva sig lite på att läsa både Norska och Danska.
  4. Nu är ju inte det riktigt sant, det fanns ett landskap i Österland (Finland) som hette just Finland vilket just Åbo ligger i.
  5. You better upload those on the internet! We need more Swedish ships on this forum, get going!
  6. I also think its gonna be hard to find Swedish things before 1697 due to the national archives burning down that year.
  7. Laid down: October 1665 Launched: 31 July 1668 Commissioned: 1672 Fate: Sunk at the Battle of Öland, 1 June 1676
  8. Chapman's archipelago frigates provided better protection for their crew than the galleys they replaced, and up to three times the capacity for stores and provisions. They could operate in the narrow, shallow waters around skerries in all weathers and in open water in all but the worst storms. They had a deeper draft than galleys, but considerably shallower draft than traditional sailing warships. The new ship types also increased the archipelago fleet's firepower, provided it with better defensive capabilities, and made possible more efficient fire support in amphibious operations. Hemmem
  9. For a bit of info on who the ship was named after. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birger_Jarl Birger Jarl (c. 1200 – 21 October 1266), or Birger Magnusson, was a Swedish statesman, Jarl of Sweden and a member of the House of Bjelbo, who played a pivotal role in the consolidation of Sweden. Birger also led the Second Swedish Crusade, which established Swedish rule in Finland.
  10. It aint a very clear picture, i belive it to be Oden from what i have made out. How the back ornaments look (Not sure from what ship). Rigging plan Atleast you can see somewhat how the back form is on this picture.

  12. I have also managed to find some slight drawings of the Hemmema (Showing side, from above and how the back looks). I will post them when i get home from work.
  13. I would much rather have a Hemmema. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemmema (Its pretty much Turumas bigger brother)
  14. Den enda flaggan för mig är våran goda tretungade örlogsflagg. Jag kommer aldrig att stryka flagg, inte ens i förlust. Det är det dödsstraff på! Jag kommer inte helt att samarbeta, men Danskarna och Norrmännen får nöja sig med att jag bara besvarar eld efter att jag (Eller dem jag eskorterar) blivit beskjutna. Kommer mest att hålla mig till att eskortera folk som vill bedriva handel.
  15. Afraid not. It was pretty epic, though was really suprised 52 people manning a total of 104 guns! That is 2 guns per crewman!
  16. So i was in my privateer and guess what? I managed to capture a Victory from someone that failed at a boaring. So my 52 men crewed the entire Victory and gave me 10k damage that match! So in love with it.
  17. Anything Swedish and i shall pledge my allegiance to this game and its company for all eternity.
  18. Matte, you know that is exactly my ideal ship to use in Naval action, a perfect blend of Speed and firepower.
  19. So will there be any gun sloops and/or gun yawls in the game in the future? It would surely be the best ship that everyone would want to use for sure. Its different kinds of gunboats designed by Fredrik Henrik af Chapman for the Swedish navy. Two variants were the most common, a larger 20 m (66 ft) "gun sloop" (from the Swedish kanonslup) with two 24-pounders, one in the stern and one in the bow, and a smaller 15 m (49 ft) "gun yawl" (kanonjolle) with a single 24-pounder. A picture of a gun yawl model.
