You have a photo of a model of a swan class sloop (18) of the late C18th and a text description of a C17th merchant/4th rate (46)

One of these things is not like the other one.

"She was specially designed to counter the attacks of Algerine corsairs, or pirates, in the Mediterranean by masquerading as a merchantman, which she achieved by hiding her armament behind false bulkheads. She also was provided with various means of changing her appearance."

@admin I think NA definitely needs a ship like this. Mabye a Indiaman with less cargo space but more speed, guns and 5 slots please (!!!) that are hidden somehow? Please based sea god! ❤️

it can be done very easy by giving the 5 slots free from the  Indiaman and give it another name (  i don't care what name)  so i do not think it is a very strange question the only problem seems to be that it is not pvp....for many (but restrictions and restrictions only ....and why!!  i really  don't know)

 

love your idea and hope your slots comes free...let protest an ask for a 5 slot free Indiaman.put on the yellow vests.
