6th-Rate plan challenge
LeBoiteux posted a topic in Unrated and other light combat vessels6th-Rate plan challenge There is no official current gap inbetween the ingame 6th-Rates and no expected new ship in the near futur apart from HMS Pandora and Le Requin (24 x 9-pdr), two very nice and awaited additions. Nonetheless, some could be added inbetween the exiting ones some day. So here is the challenge for NA plan-digging fans : post your favorite plans that might fill in the gaps below. Gaps are shown in terms of broadside weight for guns. Table 1 shows the gaps. Table 2 shows some possible armament combinaisons for each gap : Abbreviations GD : gun deck ; WD : weather deck ; fc : forecastle ; bw : broadside weight Calculation of a broadside weight : bw = (number of guns on one side of the gun deck x caliber) + (number of guns on one side of the WD/fc x caliber). Ex : broadside weight of a frigate carrying 20 x 9-pdr + 14 x 6-pdr = 10 x 9 + 7 x 6 = 132 pdr Expected post format : Ships name, date, ship characteristics, plans gap(s) to fil : 1, 2 and/or 3 historical armament and suggestion(s) for ingame armament Have fun
