Realistic answer: small patrol/rescue boats on Lake Geneva.

Fantasy answer: Well, it's clear that the Swiss are beginning their entry to this game in a grossly OP fashion. The size of the carrier itself means a ridiculously low detection radius and it will be very hard to hit. The air group is only one aircraft, but its possession of guided bombs, air-air missiles and a buzz-saw of a gun means that no CV air group currently in the game is going to come even close to coping with it. On the other hand, AA defence is limited almost entirely to the fighter, while secondaries and anti-aircraft armament are probably entirely confined to rifle-calibre small-arms and shoulder-launched guided missiles so small and short-ranged that they are probably balanced against in-game guns. :Smile_teethhappy:

There is that possibility, yes.

the Rhine flows from Switzerland, so you have the port of Basel (where the Swiss Merchant Marine "high seas fleet" is based).

Then I feel bad for any opposing navy on that Lake! :cap_rambo:

True, if Germany and the Netherlands will let them pass!

That aircraft probably has radar too.

I have also read that is a new super Hornet, not a used Australian f-18.

Mind you, when you're a Corsair, the difference between an original and a Super Hornet is the difference between death and... well, death.

Launching the aircraft has to be hard on the bridge crew.

A very strong arrestor hook and a very thick rubber band.

I've been wondering for a while if we'll see a Swiss navy tech tree introduced before the Dutch, Spanish, and Ottoman/Turkish Navies. Looks like we have our answer.

They'd better roll out Swiss Army Knife patches when the line is introduced...or riot!

All of these replies and NOBODY has mentioned that.....

...of course a Swiss CV leaks, it has so many holes in it!

 

Shameful.

If you look closely at the screenshot, the player is unable to join a battle, getting an error message that "Switzerland is Neutral".
