Its early Spring, 1941, and Battleship Bismarck slips out of Gotenhafen with its escort to steam through The Danish Straits to the North Sea to start Operation Rheinübung. Sweden under pressure from British Empire and the placement of forged German invasion plans in a hotel room in Oslo found by the Swedish Security Service (information redacted per lack of Top Secret clearance). In exchange by striking a blow to the star of the German navy as it attempts to leave the Kattagatt the British naval forces will sail into the Baltic and take up position to take the fight to mainland Germany through bombardment and blockade. The battleships Wasprite, Hood, and Prince of Wales where to promaced as a protection force (the UK also promised no boots on the ground on Swedish shores - of course this is all a ruse to get the Swedes to enter the war on the Allied side and provide some relief from the German Blitz by opening a two from war.).
Complete nonsense.... but I wanted to make a Swedish senerio and well this seems to kind of seem possible. One note - I feel I should have added mine sweepers and reduced the amount of German air. Looking for feedback and weather I should continue to public possible battles.

I haven't developed that yet, will be in v1.5. I hope to edit more this week. The Bismarck apparently had less fighter cover and had several minesweepers in its escort. I need to develop a randomization for mine placement which the Swedish player will keep secret unless a unit moves into that square.
