    Follow this link about the 40mm Bofors AA-gun:

    About the oldest City in Sweden:

    I do believe that Birka is the oldest, but it was abandon. Skara how ever was not abandon.

    I'm not to happy with the LH. Doesn't look very "viking" and looks like he has breasts. Is it just me?

    Those citynames aren´t what I´d stick with. Sorry, but they are not very representative, I think. The english ones you have in the list shouldn´t have english names, like Gainsborough. Thats not very Viking at all, even if it was founded by them. (if that was the case Constantinople is just as "right")
    Same with Dieppedale and Miquetuit, those names have no connection to the Vikings today, even if they were founded by them.

    Another problem is the use of both Birka and Stockholm. Sure, you can use both but then I suggest adding Göteborg as well (Gothenburg) and Malmö (Malmoe). My suggestion is to use the list from Civ3.

    I vote for the Bloodaxe as the leader. No longer will the heathen Spanish she-dog dare to demand tribute from me if she is facing a name like that!

    You can remove Karasjok. Sure, it's in Norway, but it's a finnish or sami name. Not so viking in other words.
    And if you could also change the misspelled "Karistad" into the correct "Karlstad" it would be even better!

    heres what the scenario should be: Europe: Battle for the north.
    scandinavian kingdoms arise - Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Iceland, and so do tensions not only do they battle eachother but vikings (replace barbarians) are a menace. Not to mention the imposing threat from the south as Germanic hordes fight for land in the cold north.

    Have you ever checked my Missing Civilizations Database? There's a link in my signature and there's a lot of city names and other suggestions made by many Viking fans. Hope it gets useful.

    THE BERSERKER!!111one

    Freshly wrapped in wolf hide and ready for combat.

    And if for some reason the skin doesn't show up -- please notify me immediately. Apparently there are two actual skin files -- but I think one of them may be unused.

    Pissing on swedes is always fun, they are quite capable of defending themselves :D (hey, if a 500 years of war in the last 1000 years is not reason to muck eachother I don't know what is)
    I am sorry about not checking up on Bofors guns, they seem quite cool. The poor quality is only a reference to fighter airplanes in the 70s that was direct reason for atleast Denmark to join the development of the F-16. If the Saab fighter back then had been of the same quality as todays seems to be, we would probably still be using Swedish fighters.
    I should add here though that the swedish airforce didn't have near the same number of recorded problems with the airplanes that we did.

    The Danish vikings occupied the british isles, and spread a lot of influence to the anglo/saxon world at the time. The norweigan vikings discovered island, greenland and north america. The swedish vikings, finally, travelled in their longships down the russian rivers as far down as Constantinople and Bagdhad, trading with the turkish/ottoman empire, and many even claim that they were instrumental in founding the russian nation.

    In my opinion, these are all great and fairly equal accomplishments by three tribes of the same culture. History and circumstances drove us apart, but I see no reason why there could not be a viking/scandinavian civ. Look at PTW for example.

    Really? I didn't know that! That's really funny :lol: Haha, serves them right, that's so typical of us swedes, but then again you have to "de-danify" the region right? Man, 350 years since the Roskilde treaty and it's still not done! :rolleyes:

    I think you need to make "Cult of The Cave Bear" a Religion to have Berzerkers.
    So are the Anglos, Jutes, and Saxons considered Vikings as they behaved the same as Vikings proper however several hundred years earlier?
