Or the Regalskeppet Vasa 3

Thanks to Johan Nilsson for letting me know this:
Of course, we have our own version of Yamato here in our Swedish history books. It was called Regalskeppet Vasa and was suppose to be our ultimate flagship/warmachine around 1628.

Of course it sank after 100 yards on its maiden voyage.

You can read more about it here if interested:

So, when Sony launches PS3 in Sweden I’m pretty sure they’ll attach this name to it to get that local branding.

Swedish readers, please take note of this local change.

That Wikipedia entry is totally fascinating, by the way, and I highly recommend it.
