Swedish mortar boatYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
The mortar boat was a specialist vessel for the Swedish archipelago navy. While small like the gun sloops and similarly constructed, it was sturdier and wider. This allowed the vessel to sit more stable on water and provide a better gun platform for the mortar. Unlike cannons the mortar only shot ballistic shot to a distance of about 1 km. The rig is very simple, consisting of one straight mast in the middle of the boat. The mast houses two sails on forward and the other back.
