Marine archaeologists from the maritime museum, Sjöhistoriska Museet in Stockholm, Sweden found what looks like remnants from a Vasa-era warship called Blekinge. The ship was believed to have sunk in 1713 when the country was in war with Russia and its allies.

According to The Lonely Planet, the archaeologists found the ship near Karlskrona naval base where it was thought to be the first ship to be built at Karlskrona shipyard. Unlike the ship, Vasa, the Blekinge survived decades and even participated in the past war between Denmark and Sweden.

The infamous Vasa warship sank around 1,300 meters when it first launched into the sea in 1628. It is now on display at the Vasamuseet, The Vasa Museum.

The same report also quoted Jim Hensson, curator of archaeology at the Swedish National Maritime Museums, saying, that the Blekinge was around the same size as the Vasa, about 45 meters long and with between 68-70 cannons - the Vasa had 64." He further stated that the ship might have downed on purpose when the Swedish economy was in trouble.

At the height of the war, constructions at the Karlskrona shipyard had to stop, and the Blekinge was sunk so as to use its canons like a barge to defend Karlskrona. However, it led to the demise of the Swedish Empire.

Archaeologists have planned to conduct studies and excavations to know the history of the warship, and it had improved tactics and battleship designs all through the years. They would likely explore the deck area of the ship which was covered in many sedimentary layers.

"Part of her is embedded in deep layers of sediment," Hansson said. "We believe there could be a relatively in-tact level of the deck under it. The ship's not at all as well preserved as the Vasa, but the part which lies outside of the pier could be better preserved."
