6th-Rate plan challenge

Recommended Posts

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Montgomery_(1776)

Probably build to Joshua Humphreys's standard design for the 24-gun frigates for a vessel 120' 6" (g.d) x 32' 6" x 10' 6" (h) mounting 24 x 9-pounder guns.

Nothing else known about it except it was one of the original 13 frigates authorized by the Continental Congress.  @Talos might know more about it or the design.

This one as well.

Thx for posting. We need US plans in those challenges (I know I'm an heretic in the neighborhood but I'm fine with it) :)

Please, correct me if I'm wrong :

24 x 9-pdr = 108 pdr = in-game Requin > bw (Pandora) --> outside of the gaps of the 6th-Rate Challenge + gap soon filled by Le Requin.

Plan ?

Wiki says : 28 guns = 24 x 6-pdr

Some additional info on her armament ?

Plan ?

Nothing more than that to go on atm, as my post read, I'm waiting on Talos to see if he has more extensive information.

Alas I don't have that much on it, though I did look. My speciality is the Federal Navy! While I haven't found a good set of plans for that design, I did find a few other ships by him with similar dimensions, including USS Congress, made by the same shipyard at the same time, Trumbull, and Effingham. Virginia is probably the closest ship I have plans for, she has nearly identical dimensions to Congress,  building at the same shipyard as Montgomery at the same time. Congress (and Virginia) are a couple feet wider than Montgomery, probably why they have 12-pdrs and she only as 9-pdrs.

 

Also, can I just say that as a history geek, I keep gritting my teeth seeing an 18-gun flush decked sloop or corvette called a 6th rate! Driving me batty. :P Also on the tables I would label the total broadside weights as "pds" instead of "pdr" to avoid confusion with the cannon shot weight. I was going to suggest the Porcupines in a similar class, but Pandora covers that already, which is great because I love those.

 

As an alternative to Phoenix, I would suggest the Banterer-class 22-gun post-ships, which can be dual nation and cover both the British ships and the American USS Cyane, taken during the war. They were built with 22 x 9-pdrs on the gun deck and a few 6-pdrs and carronades up top (those could easily be diminished). They have an upgrade route with 32-pdr carronades replacing the 9-pdrs too. Other options include the Danish Lille Belt and the French Bonne Citoyenne.

'Batty' ? To that extent ? As a French and non-naval geek, I might have been quite "couldn't-care-less" about the naming of this challenge :).

First, I thought that working on the 3 NA gaps between the Snow and HMS Pandora together could be interesting and fun. Secondly, the last time I checked navalactionwiki, all the ships between the Brig and the Niagara were said to be in-game 6th-Rates (I haven't checked it in game). And finally, I had to find a name for this challenge. 

Thx about the 'pdr' / 'pds' thing. :)

No, no, this wasn't batty about you, but how the game categorizes things. In the Royal Navy, the most prominent rating system in the English-speaking world, 6th rate in our time frame covers essentially two kinds of ships, the 28-gun frigate and the 20/22-gun post ship, the smallest vessel commanded by a Post Captain. Below that is the  "unrated" ship-sloop and brig-sloop, schooners, and other miscellaneous vessels.

 

I'll post some for this later, I was just typing that reply on my cell phone and didn't have my references on hand. :)
