Swedish Chapman type gun sloopYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
The Swedish gun sloop presents the most advanced and cost effective vessel for archipelago warfare in the late 18th century. Designed by the Swedish naval architect F. H. Chapman to be easily and cheaply built all across the Swedish kingdom and to be maneuverable in the Finnish coast, this boat became the key vessel in the war of 1788–1790. The great number of these small boats also decided the Second battle of Svensksund as the boats could re-orient and seek advantageous firing positions against the Russian fleet.
This model shows the boat in battle formation with masts lowered and oars out.
