The Gotland-class submarines of the Swedish Navy are modern diesel-electric submarines, which were designed and built by the Kockums shipyard in Sweden.

    Nice to see footage from my old home town in an american video. I had the opportunity to see the Uppland in drydock at the shipyard those subs are built. You feel very small standing straight under that beast.

    When the Ronald Reagan was targeted and "sunk" in the war games, were the Americans, surprised, angry or did nearly everyone in the battle fleet need a change of underwear. I gather this Swedish sub was built without US help, for if the US had helped they would have known about it's silent capabilities before hand. I would have loved to have seen the captain of the Ronald Reagan's face when he heard that his aircraft carrier had been sunk by a sub they couldn't detect. His face would have been a picture. Would have loved to have seen the faces of the top brass back in Washington too.

    About Sweden and military equipment, look into SAAB, Bofors and Kockum. Per capita we are doing great.

    Norway submarines kick our asses in anti-submarine warfare exercises when I was in the US Navy.

    a little adition the dutch walrus class did the same to the roseveld and its escorts. and now is building submarines in cooperation with the dutch and swedes

    builds sub of iron

    The difference between diesel electric and nuclear is a trade off. Diesel electric like he said were traditionally loud and surface engines. Traditional diesel engines were actually used for surface travel and charging the battery banks of the sub. The subs then use only battery power when submerged and when a sub is running on pure battery power, it’s extremely quiet- in fact as quiet as a sub can be (in the fuel->propulsion tech area) The new diesel engines now allow the sub to run its engines underwater, but it still switches to battery during quiet operations.

    Nuclear submarines on the other hand give you a large trade off. They will never be completely quiet because the power plant always require pumps to be running coolant to the reactor and the turbines will constantly be running in the generator. Shutting down a nuclear reactor is not really an option. For one, even with the control rods in it will still take a long time to cool down and it will require fresh coolant to be pumped during that time. Then once you’ve stop the fission reaction, you’ll have built up fission byproducts in the reactor that will slow fission process until they’re burned off, requiring a slow controlled startup. During all this time you will have no electricity generation. It’s benefit is indefinite range, indefinite submerged time, high powered propulsion, and fewer electrical limitations for equipment.

    This is obviously a very large bonus especially for countries like the United States which strategically is surrounded by the two largest oceans and its projection of sea power is a staple of its defense. That is why all US subs are nuclear and countries whom are more defensive and coastal often use diesel submarines. That and nuclear submarines are technologically more difficult to produce and require a nuclear infrastructure.

    “Sweden is a small country” lol look at the map, if that’s small Saudi Arabia is small too

    As a swede i recommend the russian to do a war game against us and we will show them we can sink their bad wood deck ships

    Lox or diesel? You mean lox and diesel

  11. historicrecord September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    why isn't the Swedish navy in the gulf protecting Swedish owned oil tankers ?

  12. easygroove September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    too bad sweden is destroyed from the inside by invasive species…

  13. Rags Toriches September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    No surprise seeing as Sweden's national sport is street cricket with hand-grenades.

  14. Bazil Faulty Jnr. September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    That’s incredibly cheap if accurate.

  15. urbandiscipline88 September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Sweden is a small country but it's as advanced as USA if not more, in relative to its population.

    No match to the Los Angeles, Virginia and seawolf class. Gotland can't go anywhere it will need to re-fuel, so that makes it a brown water submarine only…and nuclear power submarines can stay underwater for months to wait and kill the gotland which has to keep going back and forward to re-fuel. That will make nuclear submarines find it and kill it. You left out alot of stuff that a nuclear subs can do. And since its a brown water sub it can't reach the nuclear to do damage while the nuclear subs can destroy land base and navy ships from afar while the gotland is trying to reach the target but can't do to its not being nuclear powered. Its not even a top 10 submarine, it's impressive but not top 10

    As long as the Gotland-class subs can perform well and outsmart a potential enemy I say let's keep them operational. The A26 may be in the frontline doing the main work and the Gotland subs can be used for support or ambush/flank. Subs takes years to build so when the first A26 is ready for service 3 old subs and 1 new far are better than just one new waiting for the other A26's to enter. And when we have them all (3 I believe is the order) we can have at least 6 subs instead of 3 to cover more ground. I mean that wargame said something and would be a damn shame just take them out of service too early if they still can do great damage.

    Russian Shikval torpedo will do 200knots ; 370km/h ; 230mph (or greater). The USA were in shock when one was fired during a war game. It was so smart that it will turn around when it missed and hit it second go. The Kursk carried these and it is believed this caused its demise. Downside: they are extremely noisy. You can hear them on other side of the ocean.

    Dude don’t show your face a lot it’s annoying

  20. TAIMOOR September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Fuck you FTD facts, fucking spreading animosity. Earning money from indian pakistani people promoting war. Fuckkkk you

  21. David Robinson September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Interesting topic, bad facts.

  22. Wei Yan September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Also, the most advanced submarined equipped with AIP is the German 212 class, not the Swedes. Even South Korea and Isreal bought several of these 212 submarines.

  23. Wei Yan September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Rubbish, throughout the entire video, he did not explain how this submarine infiltrate the US aircraft carrier defence system

  24. Andrei Moutchkine September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Stirling engine doesn't scale. Note the gizmo having more officers than enlisted men on board.

  25. Requiem17 September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Good video, but some more detail on the Sterling engine, which was stressed in what helped make it so stealthy, would have been a good addition. Keep up the good work!

    knock knock…

  27. Kristoffer Hellström September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    love it 😛 great vid

  28. kurt engel September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    You don't think Sweden is a militarily advanced country?
    Then you don't know Sweden

  29. Petter ! September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    New Subs on the way👍🏻

  30. Matt Faulk September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    They devolved one of the best AA guns ever the 40mm bofors…they're known for making very good weapons of war but always still neutral in wars so you don't hear much about them in that case

  31. clarence spencer September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    The Norsemen: the vanguards of the future evolution of mankind? bra, bra

  32. turkeytrac1 September 21, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Sorry, but the Stirling cycle engine has been around since the first steam engine, they are a external combustion engine, and work on temperature differentials.
