Flk "Balaena" og "Abraham Larsen"

Flk "Balaena" og "Abraham Larsen"

An image well shows the difference in size between Flk “Balaena” and “Abraham Larsen”. “Abraham Larsen” was built as “Unitas” i 1937, nine years before “Balaena”. One thing that is worth mentioning is that “Balaena” was begun as aircraft carriers, but the war ended and it quickly became bestemmt that the hull would be more useful if it were completed as whaling factory since it was a great shortage of food in the UK and rest of Europe after five long years of war.
