Reuse the old Connie model USS Chesapeake.

Recommended Posts

Here is a suggestion, why not reuse the old Connie model and just rename it USS Chesapeake?  I think it would be a good reuse of the model and basically add another ship to the game.  It would be historically accurate (half sister ship to the connie) because the ships would look similar.

lol I read cheapskate too, which is ironic seeing as the post about sticking an extra couple of bow chasers on a ship and pretending it's a new ship :)

You'd be better off re-using the Leda class model... there are differences in form, but they are at least 'the same size' and carry nearly identical armament.

Constitution is over 20 feet longer.

President and United States were the sister ships of the Constitution. Like Lieste said, the Chesapeake was a smaller 38 gun frigate. Speaking of the Leda class. We could actually use the Trincomalee, alter her a bit (don't actually know which cosmetic changes) and name her HMS Shannon.

'Flatten' her transom and and make her fir/fir only :P IIRC, she was part of the Cygnus-class, the only main difference from the Ledas was the type of wood used.

Ew, not many would want to sail her then :) . If wiki can be trusted, then Shannon was build before the other ships of the Cydnus variant.
