The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Glad you liked it!A very good, detailed and interesting look into the swedish armed forces! I enjoyed the chapter quiet alot and I can't wait for the next one!
Not much sadly. I was talking from a historical perspective in the update...in game terms, my navy would get soundly trounced if the German AI actually spends time upgrading the Kreigsmarine. Of course, I soundly trounced the Soviet Baltic Fleet in my test game, so if I end up at war with them, I have that at leastnice update, but what can these heavy cruisers do against the mighty Bismarck and Tirpitz should they come together?
That must be the case. It sucks for me though, since I'm only getting tanks via-Germany now. Not that I really have the leadership to try and pursue tanks anyway though...I'm pretty sure Sweden has tank techs in TFH HPP, I guess it was overlooked for the SF version.
Once I've reinforced my army somewhat, Sweden itself should be fairly secure. Now doing any good out of Sweden is a bit more difficult.Sweden seems in a good position to attack and defend itself against any invader be they from North, East, South or West!
Thanks! And if Sweden has a CB tech, I haven't found it. Germany never invading Denmark would be odd, but it would certainly help me out if I end up Allies. Then again, it could force them to go for a Swedish Sealion, and that could hurt.Very nice start!
In TFH Sweden has a Coastal Battleship tech that gives extra firepower and hull in exchange for speed and range but I don't know if that was there in the SF version?
When I played Sweden I never had to defend the strait because Germany never invaded Denmark (vanilla before I first tried HPP) but you should be wary of German naval bombers - you probably don't have a naval base they can't reach so I think your focus on air defences is absolutely correct.
Thanks!Nice overview of the forces at your disposal and the position of Sweden, excellent update!

I'm working on the update nowthat was intresting, MOAR!
Thanks! And I'm interested in what I'll do when the war starts too, considering I still don't know who I'll end up with.Great, really great! Interesting to see what you do when the war starts!
Glad to have you.Lookin good! Subbed!
Now that the military and political state of Sweden has been established, we move into the first half of 1936. As has been established, the year started out as could be expected of a year in the 1930's. The nations of the world were recovering from the Great Depression, some better than others. Among those nations, there were various ways they worked to recover. Sweden sold its wealth of natural resources left and right, giving its economy a much-needed boost.Warriors of the North said:Chapter 1.2: January-June 1936
Liberia is a US puppet in HPP actually.great update, but I think you made a little mistake... Liberia was at least de jure the only remaining free state in Africa (many argue that the country was a de facto colony of the USA though)
I'm hoping so too.The world is getting closer to war... Hopefully your professional soldiers will be well trained and most of all well supplied with an army infrastructure that is as good as it can get (unlike nowdays).
We left off with the reorganization of Sweden's Army into a professional force, the envy of the world. The first units to be recruited into this Standing Army, not just retrained, were the two Cavalry Divisions that had been under construction during the preceding months. These two divisions were made up of two brigades of traditional horse-mounted cavalry, and one brigade of Volvo armored cars. There was some debate over the practicality of putting fuel-hungry armored cars with the traditional horses, but the added firepower won out in the end.Warriors of the North said:Chapter 1.3: June-December 1936
Things are going to get busier as I get closer to the war. Thankfully though, if I do end up in the Axis (like it looks like at the moment) I probably won't get called into the war until Barbarossa, so I might have up until 1941 before I have to worry.There sure is alot of stuff happening! Hoepfully you will have time to expand your army before the war comes.
Right now, my manpower is 170 or so and going up by 1.9 per month. Certainly not going to be a lot, even with the fact I can sit out the first couple years of the war (at the moment). I'm hoping I made the right choice too.Very nice updates! Since you mentioned a shortage of manpower, I hope you've made right choice going with the standing army. It does allow you to recruit before you go to war but you will get less manpower overall before you are forced into an emergency draft.
Still some time sadly. Got to finish the AA guns, and then start building some fighters. Right now my army and navy are decent enough, but the Air Force has all of one fighter group, and building a new one takes 18 IC right now.nice update! but, how long till mountain troops can be trained?
Nah, don't worry about the nitpicking. I always like learning more about the history that I might mess up on.Hi all,
it would be Landsverk armoured cars, not Volvo. And abt. 700 Swedes served as volunteers with the Reps, don`t know how many with the Rebs. 700 is a lot for a country without population.
BTW, sry for the nitpicking but it`s one of my fav pastimes.
