    Has anyone heard of a sunken Swedish battleship off the coast of Cyprus?

    A friend said he heard about it on TV but I can't find any info.

    Looks like the HMS Cricket is the only battleship in the area, but it's British not Swedish. However there is a Swedish wreck in Cyprus names the Zenobia, a ferry.

    HMS Cricket-
    Location: Larnaka Coast
    Depth:33m
    Visibility:10m to 25mSituated

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks y'all - I knew Scubaboard would come through.
    My friend must have mistaken the Zenobia for a battleship. I love wreck diving so perhaps a trip to dive both the Zenobia and the HMS Cricket is in order. :)
