'Foudroyant' 80-Gun 3rd rate, 1798 (With Plans)

Recommended Posts

I believe she would fit in quite nicely as the Bucentaure is over gunned and has 88 instead of her normal 80/86, she is larger with a higher tonnage being both slightly longer and wider, so would likely be a bit sturdier than Bucentaure but a little less agile and slower. As a ship in game I would see her playing a more tanky 3rd/2nd rate role where she soaks up damage and messes up lines similarly to L'ocean but on a smaller scale. The crew of 650 for Foudroyant seems a little light though but I imagine she would be boosted to similar crew levels as the Pavel.

 

Remember that the Royal Navy set crew numbers by rates. Everything I've seen shows  650 for Foudroyant, and basically the same for the 74s. 650 maxed out the numbers for the 3rd rates, including the 80s. Even a 98 gun is only up to a hundred people more than that.

Hi ned,

 

I would like to build this beautiful ship in 3d.

Do you have the plans and could share them with me perhaps?

Thanks in advance
