I wonder if you guys here have more information about the various Swedish Missile and Rocker projects this fascination country developed or started developing?
I've found this swedish site providing some info and history:

Here you have drawings of 'Eskaderledare' (or Flotilla Leader) project made in Sweden in 1947 that may be founde elsewhere on the Internet (I believe they are genuine). The drawings seemquite self-explanatory.
The ship's main battery was four twin 'LT' ('Lufttorped' or Air Torpedo) launchers...
This rather obscure Sweden weapon system, actually, quite interesting:
It is the first Western shipborne anti-ship missile ever commissioned, and the only one Western SSM close to Soviet cotemporary analogues (like P-15 "Termit"). Interesting to note, that it seems to be essentially an...
the Swedish company Svenska Aero Aktiebolaget was formed in 1921 to build some
Heinkel aircraft and its own designs,in 1931 liquidated and taken over by the Svenska
Järnvägsverkstäderna,AB,and in 1939 the company merged with Svensak Aeroplan AB
to create SAAB.

At http://imgur.com/a/Qjex8 you may find original drawings of a Swedish aircraft carrier design of 1946 - called in the Swedish "hangarkryssare" (I feel 'cruiser with a hangar'). The aircraft are the Sea Vampires.

In "Der Flieger" January 1962, a drawing of the then still only planned Swedish
Saab 401 hovercraft is shown, which shows several differences to the later vehicle,
realised in 1963 (photo from http://www.saabhistory.com/2007/02/01/the-saab-401-hovercraft/)
In the Eighties there was an infamous spate of submarine incidents in Swedish waters, apparently involving mini submarines penetrating close to shore (and even inside harbour areas). From the reports at least some of these would appear to have been fitted with Caterpillar/Tank style Tracks...
This image of this ship was borrowed from a site dealing in 1/1250 ships. I am interested in a three view of this ship.
It is no doubt some kind of Pocket or Panzer ship project. Perhaps by Zenker.
Any help in obtaining a three view or direction to a book in English or German which elaborates...
Before the 'viking' submarine design matured, Sweden was investigating a flatfish design as a configuration for their future submarine requirement. I have little information about the concept or why there may be advantages for a flatfish design (other than operating in shallow waters) I attach...
