Reviewing the Swiss Navy by CareldeWinter Reviewing the Swiss Navy by CareldeWinter
This is my first take on Steampunk. I had a wonderful holiday in Switzerland a couple of years ago, which included a boat trip on Lake Constance. It struck me that with all this water, that the Swiss needed a navy, and this was the result. The warships are entirely my own work, and if you look closely, you will see that they are all paddlesteamers.

My holiday in Switzerland was the best I ever had. Your country is so utterly beautiful that words fail to do it justice. This picture was great fun to do, and I may return to the subject of the Swiss navy at a future date, by rendering pictures of some of the individual vessels.

They have a navy! Well, kind of. Motorboats and small open boats with outbord engines to be exactely. Nothing great, I have to admit.

Yes, Switzerland has a ocean trading fleet. During the two world wars it stayed neutral and didn't entered the wars. But as a interior country surrounded by war, the supply for goods goes back dramatically. That was the reason to found a own fleet of freighters after the second world war.
