Found some spelling errors in my current game as Norway.

Patrol ship "Mode class", origin North Europe. Is this supposed to be "Molde class"? Molde is a Norwegian city. Mode does not mean anything in any Scandinavian language to my knowledge (Though I cant speak for Finish).
Is it supposed to be based on this ship? https://www.sjohistorie.no/no/skip/19602/ (Link in Norwegian, sorry. Should be easy to translate using Google translate).

Capital ship "Tre Kroner" should be named "Tre Kronor". Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tre_Kronor-class_cruiser
While I dont mind the Norwegian sounding name, I assume the Swedes would be rather upset by the renaming of the pride and joy of the Royal Swedish Navy to sound Norwegian or Danish. ;-)

Escort ship "Osgergotland" should be named "Östergotland" or just "Ostergotland" if you dont use umaults. Though I notice several of the Finish Navy ships use umaults so not sure why you wouldnt use them for Sweden. Just in case this is a recent addition, there are several other ships that should be honoured using their proper names. Ill list them as I find them.

Goteborg class - Göteborg
D-16 Oland - D-16 Öland
Ehrenskold - Ehrensköld


Also, playing as a minor nation I request that the C-47 Skytrain be made a "multiple sources" unit as there are no air transports available for research before CM-T Carriage, which is tech level 52. Please consider doing it with some late stage units as well, such as a Boeing or Airbus variant as they are pretty common and there are very few multiple source aircraft available. Pretty please :-)

Can't find Mode, but got the rest.

For C-47, maybe see what Zuikaiku thinks :)

Superb! :)

Here is a snapshot of the "Mode" class as mentioned above. Will this help you find it?

Zuikaku is still dead in the water with engine and boiler rooms flooded and with considerable list :lol:

I'm still waiting for the BGs to stop working on unit database and then I'll continue to do my work - when repairs are done.

Regarding C-47 I'm reluctant to make it "multiple source" unit since they were US design. I'll consider adding some other "world" units of lower quality. I'm also considering removing all "world" tanks since they create some rather strange situations (like egypt building masses of outdated "world" pre-WW2 era tanks in '50s or '60s.

Mode according to Swedish wikipedia is one of the children of the Norse gods Thor and Sif. Translates to something like brave.
https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode_(mytologi)

There is also an article about the 1942 destroyer. It shares the name with 2 other Swedish warships the first from 1902 and the last from 1978.
https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Mode_(29)
https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode-klass

So it looks okay to me.

SO3C-1 Seamew ASW (US Plane) doesn't have any anti submarine stats.

US Cruiser CLG-3 Galveston CLG is amphibious assault capable and has a cargo of 17000tons. This shouldn't be as the ship was an early conversion to a (I think Terrier) missile cruiser.

Darn, that was my go to troop carrier in early years. I, uh, conveniently overlooked the error, as it has been that way a long while.

I don't have yet SRGW, but in SRU database I found this one, which could also be in the GW database

unit id 18516 "F-486 De Andrade"
unit id 18157 "F-486 Baptista De Andrade"
could be a duplicate?

Eng #87 / 88 / 89 are of "multiple" variant instead of the specific US one.
