PLEASE, post only information. Thank you.

 

This thread has the main purpose of collecting as many Spanish ships as we can and, with them, make a reference for incoming works on them for Naval Action. 

 

First of all this thread is going to be filled constantly with any ship on service for the Spanish Armada in the age of sail. No matter if ships are originally built in Spanish territory, bought from other nations or captured. 

 

Before starting this, is a real need to advice how to post the information we are going to expect from all of you, so, have a look the next points we give to you:

 

1. The main and official name of the ship, of course, with blue and bold font for an easy localization, including all names which that ship used in all her life with normal and blue font. Some ships, apart of the official name, had a kind of 'nickname' put by their sailors, in that case, post it in normal and blue font too. 

 

2. The number of cannons just below the name of her, beside the year when she was launched. The number of cannons, if that information is available, must contain the distribution of cannons per deck and the caliber of that cannons. This information is a bit relative and inconstant, due to the circumstances that all us know, so, please, if it is possible, attach to this information the source you used (webpages, books, documentals, etc).

 

3. Plans and blueprints of the ships. This is, in my opinion, the most important information. It's a real enterprise to revive in a computer program the dimensions of a ships that was sunk many years ago, so any blueprint, plan or similar plan (including paintings, images, kit models, colours, etc) will be useful to recreate them. Is not mandatory to post a ship with her plans, but remember that no plans = probably no model will be created. And of course, attach the source of information, please.

 

4. And finally, a REALLY short summary of her History, including some battles or operations.

 

 

Just below of this lines will be an index which will contain all your post and will be updated constantly, classified all ships in, of course, classes (1st, 2nd, 3th rates, etc).

 

So the INDEX begins here...

 

* Dimension and other information should be added too, as crew number.

*Thanks to Cavero for a lot of useful information.

Diana

 

The frigate Diana was launched on the 10th of March 1792. It formed part of the series of frigates known as "Mahonesas", as they had been built in the city of Mahón. Thanks to its design, it could sail faster than its predecessors. It took part in the war against France along the Catalan coast although, during the war of Independence, its base was in Cadiz. As a member of the naval forces of Havana, it took part in battles against the corsairs in the Antilles and made various trips across the Atlantic. It was broken up in 1833 in the naval shipyard of Cartagena.

Hi Guys:

I'm that JMLVQZ who made the 3D model of the HCM Montañes that is inluded in this list. Its been quite a nice surprise finding my drawings here.

Thanks for your comments.

 

About the ship: .... Lord Nelson said the first time he saw the ship ... "My God, she manouvers as a frigate but fights as a First rated"

 

Kind regards
