  1. Loudovikos was a corvette of the Hellenic Navy built in 1838 at the Poros Naval Shipyard, designed by naval architect Georgios Tombazis. It was a relatively large ship (length 44.1 m, 1000-ton displacement), was armed with two 22-lb plus four 20-lb long guns, and twenty-four 32-lb carronades, and had a crew of 182. The ship was not operationally utilized, and since 1846 it was used as a training ship (renamed Messolongion in 1862). It officially remained in service with the Hellenic Navy until 1873. Lenght:44.1 meters Width:11.7 meters Draft:4.5 meters Tonnage:1016 tons Crew: 182 Armamament: 2 x 22 pounder guns 4 x 20 pounder long guns 24 x 32 pounder carronades I know its a bit off the cut off period but not by that much. More images,model and info at(in Greek):http://www.greekshipmodels.com/default.aspx?pageid=170 Ship plans: The pictures of the ship's plans where taken from the Hellenic Maritime Museum where they are exhibited.
  2. HMS Vernon was a 50-gun fourth rate launched in 1832. The ‘Vernon’ was built at Woolwich Dockyard and measured 176 feet in length by 44 feet in the beam and a tonnage of 1511. She was the first large ship designed by William Symonds in 1831. HMS Vernon was a frigate that saw active service in home waters, the Americas and the East Indies between 1832 and 1848.
  3. 'Pique' 36x32lb Guns HMS Pique was a wooden fifth-rate sailing frigate of the Royal Navy, launched on 21 July 1834 at Devonport. She was of 1633 tons and had 36 guns. History Under the command of Captain Edward Boxer (3 August 1837 - August 1841), she sailed to North America, the West Indies and the Mediterranean, including operations on the coast of Syria, as part of the squadron led by HMS Cambridge, and including Zebra and Vesuvius. In 1840 Pique saw service in the bombardment of the city of Acre under the command of Admiral Robert Stopford. For the engagement, Pique was assigned to the far northern end of the line, north-northeast of the much larger HMS Waterloo and at a greater distance from the city than the rest of Stopford's fleet. Despite this unfavourable position, accurate gunnery enabled Pique to score several hits on the town. In 2012 renovation works along Acre's city wall uncovered three cannonballs fired by Pique during the battle, the shots having struck within three metres of each other and embedded in the wall at depths of up to 65 centimetres. Between 1841 and 1846 Pique served on the North America and West Indies Station. With HMS Blake, in 1845 she acted as a cable ship for experiments in laying telegraph cable in Portsmouth Harbour. From 26 December 1853 she was commanded by Captain Frederick Nicolson on the Pacific Station, and participated in the 1854 Anglo-French squadron sent to the Russian War and Second Anglo-Chinese War). She was present at the Siege of Petropavlovsk. From 1872 she was a receiving ship, and from 1882 rented as a hospital hulk to Plymouth Borough Council to quarantine sailors who fell victim to a cholera epidemic. She was broken up in 1910. Plans
  4. The USS Constellation was a Sloop of War built in 1854... Before I go any further, yes I am aware that this ship was built later than the timeframe of Naval Action (The Brig Mercury 1820 is the latest built ship in the game) So to have Constellation in the game her armament could be reduced or have some other changes made. Moving on. Constellation was constructed in 1854 in Norfolk VA. She was constructed using materials from the salvaged frigate of the same name. Constellation is the last sail-only warship designed and built by the Navy. Despite being a single-gundeck "sloop," she is actually larger than her frigate namesake, and more powerfully armed with fewer but much more potent shell-firing guns Service 1855–58 performed diplomatic duties as part of the U.S. Mediterranean Squadron. 1859–61 flagship of the African Squadron, taking part in African Slave Trade Patrol operations to disrupt the Atlantic slave trade. December 21, 1859, captured the brig Delicia September 26, 1860, Constellation captured the Cora with 705 slaves, who were set free in Monrovia, Liberia. May 21, 1861, Constellation overpowered the slaver brig Triton Constellation spent much of the war as a deterrent to Confederate cruisers and commerce raiders in the Mediterranean Sea. Specifications Displacement: 1,400 long tons (1,400 t) Length: 181 ft (55 m) (waterline) 199 ft (61 m) (overall) Beam: 41 ft (12 m) (waterline) 43 ft (13 m) extreme Draft: 21 ft (6.4 m) Propulsion: Sail Complement: 20 officers, 220 sailors, 45 marines Armament: 16 × 8 in (200 mm) chambered shell guns 4 × 32-pounder (15 kg) long guns 1 × 20-pounder (9 kg) Parrott rifle 1 × 30-pounder (14 kg) Parrott rifle 3 × 12-pounder (5 kg) bronze boat howitzers So on to balancing I was thinking that her armament could be 22 x 18 pd cannons or 32 pd carronades (gundeck) 2 x 9 pd cannons or 32 pd carronades (bow chasers) I think that with the armament I've suggested could make her a balanced ship in Naval Action, while not totally historically accurate, it could work.
  5. The Austin was a 600 ton ship-rigged sloop in the Second Texas Navy that is most famously remembered for being immortalized on the cylinder of the 1851 Colt Navy revolver. The scene engraved on the Colt depicts the 1843 Naval Battle of Campeche Bay, between the Mexican Navy and the Republic of Texas and Republic of Yucatan naval forces. This battle is notable as the only time an all-sail-powered force defeated an enemy with steam powered vessels. She carried a crew of 23 officers and warrant officers, 151 sailors and marines and was armed with 16 medium 24-pound cannons, two 18-pound medium cannons, and two 18-pound long cannons. She began construction in 1839 as the Texas in Baltimore by the Schott and Whitney firm, and was delivered to the Texas Navy and commissioned on 5 January 1840 under the command of Captain Edwin W. Moore, TN. In addition to her participation in the actions off of the coast of the Yucatan against Mexico, she was able to capture several enemy vessels as prizes. She was commissioned into the United States Navy on 11 May 1846 following the annexation of the Republic of Texas into the United States where she served in Pensacola until she was stricken in 1848. Here are more pictures of the Austin

Be an amazing for more choices in the Trincomelee-Constitution Frigate weight class. Fifty - Sixty Guns, 30 and 24 lbs armed, with 30 pound carronades up top.
  7. Didon was a 60-gun Dryade class first rank frigate of the French Navy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dryade-class_frigate Didon took part in the Invasion of Algiers in 1830, and in the Battle of the Tagus the next year. She later took part in the Crimean War as a troopship. Armament: 60 30-pounders (yep, it's OP)
  8. 'Charles W. Morgan' Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_W._Morgan_%28ship%29 Charles W. Morgan is an American whaling ship whose active service period was during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Built in 1841, ships of this type were usually used to harvest the blubber of whales for whale oil, which was commonly used in lamps. The ship has served as a museum ship since the 1940's, and is now an exhibit at the Mystic Seaport museum in Mystic, Connecticut. It is the world's oldest surviving merchant vessel, and the only surviving wooden whaling ship from the 19th century American merchant fleet. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. Construction Charles Waln Morgan chose Jethro and Zachariah Hillman's shipyard to construct a new ship at their shipyard in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The Morgan's live oak keel was laid down in February 1841 and fastened together with copper bolts. The bow and stern pieces of live oak were secured to the keel by an apron piece. The sturdy stern post was strengthened with hemlock root and white oak. Yellow pine shipped from North Carolina was used for the ship's beams and hemlock or hackmatack was used for the hanging knees. Construction of the Morgan proceeded until April 19, 1841, when the workers went on strike, demanding a ten-hour work day. The strike gathered support until it encompassed the shipyard, the oil refineries and the cooper shops; Charles Morgan was appointed chairman of the employers and tasked to resolve the strike. Morgan opposed their demands, and a meeting with four master mechanics ended in failure. On May 6, an agreement was reached when the workers accepted a ten-and-a-half-hour workday. Work resumed on the ship without incident and it was launched on July 21, 1841. The ship was registered as a caravel of 106 1⁄2 feet (32.5 m) in length, 27 feet 2 1⁄2 inches (8.293 m) inches in breadth, and 13 feet 7 1⁄4 inches (4.147 m) in depth.The ship's construction and rigging cost a total of $32,562.08 and was assessed a shipyard fee of $2.25 per day for its 258 construction; labor charges was billed at $1.75 a day for 129½ days. The ship was outfitted at Rotch's Wharf for the next two months while preparations were made for its first voyage. The name Charles W. Morgan was initially rejected by its namesake builder before being used. Captain Thomas Norton sailed the Morgan into the Atlantic alongside the Adeline Gibbs and the Nassau towards the Azores. A stop was made at Porto Pim (Horta) on Faial Island to gather supplies before crossing the Atlantic and passing Cape Horn before charting a course to the north. On December 13, the men launched in their whaling boats and took their first whale, harpooning it and killing it with the thrust of a lance under the side fin. The Morgan entered the port of Callau in early February and departed again on the 10th for the Galapagos Islands. In 1844, the ship sailed to the Kodiak Grounds before sailing for home on August 18. The Morgan returned to her home port in New Bedford on January 2 in 1845.The voyage of three years and three months resulted in 59 whales being processed for 1600 barrels of sperm oil, 800 barrels of right whale oil and five tons of whale bone that netted a total of $53,052.56. Service life Charles W Morgan 2008.jpg In her 80 years of service, she made 37 voyages ranging in length from nine months to five years. Charles W. Morgan, in total, brought home 54,483 barrels of sperm and whale oil and 152,934 pounds of whalebone. She sailed in the Indian and South Atlantic Oceans, surviving ice and snow storms. Her crew survived a cannibal attack in the South Pacific. Between 1888 and 1904 she was based in San Francisco. Charles W. Morgan had more than 1,000 whalemen of all races and nationalities in her lifetime. Her crew included not only Americans, but sailors from Cape Verde, New Zealand, the Seychelles, Guadeloupe, and Norfolk Island. The ship's crew averaged around 33 men per voyage. As with other whaleships in the 19th century, Charles W. Morgan was often home to the captain's family. Charles W. Morgan was owned and managed by the J. & W. R. Wing Company of New Bedford. During her years of service, Charles W. Morgan was used in several movies, including Miss Petticoats (1916), Down to the Sea in Ships (1922) and Java Head (1923). Preservation The Morgan was nearly destroyed in 1924 when the Sankaty, a steamer, caught fire and broke free of its mooring lines. The burning Sankaty drifted across the river and into the Morgan '​s port quarter, but the Fairhaven firemen managed to save the Morgan. This event spurred Harry Neyland and some New Bedford citizens to restore and preserve the Morgan. Unsuccessful in their efforts, Neyland persuaded Colonel Edward Howland Robinson Green to save the ship. Neyland appealed to Green that the Morgan was of historicial importance and was a family heirloom because the Morgan was once co-owned by Green's grandfather and his wife's company. Green had the ship towed to his estate in Round Hill (Dartmouth, Massachusetts) and founded Whaling Enshrined consisting of himself, Neyland and John Bullard, the great-grandson of Charles Waln Morgan. The Morgan underwent restoration by Captain George Fred Tilton and was turned into an exhibition for Green's estate in a berth constructed by Frank Taylor. On the 86th anniversary of the Morgan '​s launch, Green held a dedicatory ceremony and gave the ship to Whaling Enshrined on July 21, 1926. The Morgan '​s fate came into question when Tilton died in 1932 and Green died in 1935; resulting in lengthy court proceedings over the Green's estate. The 1938 New England hurricane damaged the Morgan '​s hull and tore the sails; Whaling Enshrined attempted, but could not secure funds for the ship. In 1941, the Morgan was saved by the Marine Historical Association (later renamed Mystic Seaport) based on Taylor's word that the ship could be freed and towed to Mystic, Connecticut. Taylor's crew dug the Morgan from its berth and dredged a channel for it to pass through, but the first attempt to pull the ship free was unsuccessful. More digging and caulking of the ship preceded the Morgan '​s successful tugging into the channel and the century old hull withstood the move and floated into bay provided by the Coast Guard cutter General Greene. The Morgan was towed to the old berth in Fairhaven for several days of preparations and repairs prior to the trip to Mystic. On November 5, 1941, the General Greene pulled the Morgan from the wharf only to have it be caught by the tide and swept downstream, coming to rest on a mud flat and requiring two hours to be freed. The journey came to an end on November 8 when the Morgan passed through the Mystic bridge and was moored in the Mystic Seaport. The Mystic Seaport took shape around the Morgan with the restoration of its buildings and historic ships that came to reside at the museum. Stackpole writes, "Over it all, the Morgan presided like Old Neptune-the centerpiece, the king seated on a throne of gravel, towering high above the scene. Restoration The Charles W. Morgan in dry-dock undergoing restoration Charles W. Morgan arrived at Mystic Seaport in December 1941. The ship was declared a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966. In 1971, the United States Postal Service issued a commemorative stamp honoring Charles W. Morgan. For the first 30 years of the ship's life at Mystic Seaport, she was surrounded by a bed of sand to prevent her from sinking. Even so, she was open to the public and was the center piece of an recreated 19th Century maritime village museum inspired by Colonial Williamsburg. She was, and is, the only preserved 19th Century whaling ship. A restoration and preservation project was undertaken in 1968 which resulted in her being made seaworthy and the sand bed was removed. Prior to the 1968 restoration, she had a wide white stripe on her sides with painted with large black squares that resembled gun ports when viewed at a distance. This "camouflage" was often employed by 19th Century merchant ships to make them resemble warships so as to deter pirates and hostile navies. In 2010 Mystic Seaport was engaged in a multi-million dollar restoration, intended to restore the ship to seaworthy status. On July 21, 2013, marking the 172nd anniversary of the vessel’s initial launch, the Charles W. Morgan was re-launched into the Mystic River. During the summer of 2014 the Morgan sailed its 38th voyage on tour of New England seaports which included New London, Newport, Boston and her home town of New Bedford. Detailed Plans:
  9. There will be this ship with 140 guns 32 lb? if they put it would probably be the most powerful ship in the game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Pennsylvania_%281837%29
  10. Hey here is some technical drawings for this french 52 gun 4th rate i found, did a search and it is not on this forum so here it is. I thought the constitution and trincomalee could use more buddies.
  11. Hello and i know these ships were 23 years past the time where this game is set, but due to the ships being unarmed id like to make a case for them to be included. these vessels were extremely fast bulk transporters, usually used in the tea trade, and could break 17 knots (like the trincomalee we have now) ill present a few at the end of this case but hear me out. Every game should have meaningfull progresion and including these will give a nice step up from slow and limited merchant vessels, giveing us traders awsome ships to look at and enjoy! i will give you the specifications on my favourite of the bunch the Cutty sark. Keep in mind they were a composite frame of a iron skeleton and wooden outer coating this could easily be changed to full wood for playability and i dont mind if you change them Cutty sark: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cutty_Sark Wiki link for career and general information: Plans and drawings Please consider changing the skeleton! please see attached. I do hope you consider this vessel and others of this class, there is many to be made! Regards PowderMonkey.
