As you may remember I got a small fleet of 1/2400 Napoleonic ships made by Figurehead while at Havoc These are now ready to take to the seas as the Navy of the Grand Duchy of D'Argent. They need names so submit one or more good ships names in the comments and you may gain a commission in the Navy of the Grand Duke.
There are bigger ships in sea but the British Navy came to the opinion that ships larger than 100 guns were too large and cumbersome (not to mention expensive) to be effective.
The fleet also has an 82 guns ship of the line the largest of what the Royal Navy called 3rd rates
This ship together with the two 74 gun ships of the line are the core power of the fleet
Four ships of the line represent a strong fleet in being or a significant raiding force.
Large enough to deal with any pirate ship they might encounter and fast enough to scout for the main fleet in time of war.
Finally we have a large merchant vessel lightly armed but capable of working as a troop transport or supply vessel.
