  1. Nice. Congratulations to the Spanish. Hopefully we'll be as successful with this one.
  2. Just a question, but have the Spanish petitioned for new ships? Their ships have been around forever. It makes me curious as to why they've only been allocated one "ugly whale of a ship.." I'm not trying to be an ass, I am actually confused.
  3. Today marks an extremely important day in history. On December 7, 1941, the United States was attacked by the Empire of Japan as a result of increasing hostility between these two great nations. This day would mark the day that the United States officially became a member of World War II, deploying its Navy in the Pacific Theatre. Over twenty-three hundred sailors and military personnel were killed, and more than seventeen hundred were wounded. Take a moment to honor these men and women who fought the war against Imperialism. This was the declaration of war by the President of the
  4. Yes, this is correct, however, my objective of this post was to bring to the limelight the lack of heavy American ships. The Americans have one, whereas the British, French and most all other nations severely outgun American ships for someone who just wants to use American ships. The USS Constitution and USS Essex are really cool, and you folks as developers have done an astonishing job at siphoning out the ships that are unnecessary. This being said, I chose the North Carolina for a couple of reasons: The first being that it's one of the only American ships at the time which was actually acti
  5. And to all of you, thank you for turning this into a lively discussion. Hopefully we can come to an agreement on this topic.
  6. Furthermore, in comparison with British, French, and Spanish ships of the time, we only have two actual U.S. ships in the game: The USS Constitution and USS Essex. That's it. And as Malachy rightly mentions, the United States was a real naval power in 1812. The British Navy suffered pretty heavy casualties during the war, and was pretty much stalemated by a newly formed nation just twenty years prior. I think we should give at least on American Ship of the Line a chance, and this should be the one. The USS America never even served the US Navy. It was given to the French.
  7. USS North Carolina, American 94 Gun Ship of the Line, 1820 Launch, 1824 Commission The USS North Carolina was an American, 94 Gun, Ship of the Line which was launched on September 17, 1820, and officially deployed on June 24, 1824. The North Carolina would serve as one of the toughest ships in the American Navy. It would fit the position of one of the first American Ship of the Line, and would categorize it between the Victory and Santisima, and with only a slight advantage over the L'Ocean.
