Long Description:
HMS Småland (J19) is a Swedish Halland-class destroyer. She and HMS Halland were the only ones built of their class. Two more ships were ordered but they were never completed.

A destroyer is a fast warship heavily armed with depth charges, guided missiles and other weapons. They were originally used to protect battleships from attacks from submarines, for example.

She was decommissioned in 1979, and since 1987 has been a museum ship in the Gothenburg maritime center where she is the largest vessel on display.

HMS Småland (J19) was built by Eriksberg, Göteborg. Commissioned 1956. Decommissioned 1979
