Interesting.
But I'm afraid that rudder and screws have been accidentialy cut off, and there are stray pixels between antenna wires and near the caption.

I'm assuming there are two side-by-side bow mounts, as on the German light cruisers of the period.

Where's the propulsion though?

Certainly an interesting design, thanks for sharing it here and good to see you drawing again.

The stern arrangement is odd, maybe the propellers are meant to be on the end of that odd skeg?

Curious to know if there's any information on what the armor scheme was to be (if any armor at all)...

The placement of the skeg is odd, it may be to get the props deeper for more efficiency, but personally I think it's on the centerline and there to protect the rudder from grounding. That seems more likely that pushing the props down for a country that operates in treacherously shallow waters. Prop shafts probably aren't shown, for some reason or another.

that skeg is to protect the ruder from ice that is being pushed under the hull.

She is most likely a twin screw ship, just as many other Swedish navy ships of that time
