Under the Treaty of Versailles, the German Navy was limited to ships with a displacement of no more than 10,000 tons; however, these restrictions did not extend to the construction of ships intended for other nations. After World War I, Germany was left with several hundred unfinished ships. Some of them were completed and sold abroad. Sweden, driven by its aim to bolster its naval forces, could explore the possibility of acquiring and completing a German battleship.

HSwMS Karl XIV Johan Commemorative Flag
Karl XIV Johan was the King of the Swedish-Norwegian Union who ruled in the first half of the 19th century. He was born in France, where he participated in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. The first ship of the Swedish Navy named after Karl XIV Johan entered service during the reign of this King.

Key Features

> Karl XIV Johan is armed with twelve (12) 305mm main battery guns which have a quick reload time but low damage per salvo and short range.
> The ship is also armed with sixteen torpedo tubes which have wide launching angles.
> She also has a well-protected citadel and good concealment values but a rather low HP pool for a battleship.
> Consumables are represented by Hydroacoustic Search and Repair Party with improved settings.
