'Mordaunt' 1681 (British 4th Rate with Plans)

Recommended Posts

I finally was able to find plans for my favorite ship. Enjoy!

 

HMS Mordaunt 1681

HMS Mordaunt was a 46-gun fourth rate ship of the line of the English Royal Navy, launched at Deptford in 1681. She had been privately built, and was purchased into the navy in 1683. She has been the only ship of the Navy to be named Mordaunt, after the surname of numerous holders of the title of the Earl of Peterborough.

She was commanded from 4 September 1688 by John Tyrell, and on 4 October 1689 she was part of a fleet that fought an engagement with 12 French warships.

 

Mordaunt became stranded in 1693, and was lost.

She's like a mini Bellona!

Intresting how she has only four more guns than the Constitution yet has two gun decks. Probably the 100-200 year diff in designs, but it seems small. Cool design!

Love this ship.  Should be added soonest.  Huge fan of 2 deck 4th rates in all shapes and sizes and this one has a excellent look about her.   She's beautiful.

How much do I have to pay to have it ingame?

This should be sent as PM to Admin. I want to see it in the game as well.

Might make a good premium ship at that.  Depending on the model and just what a premium ship actually does for you in game.

Just a unique look. All ships will be balanced the same I think.

Wasn't talking about balancing actually was talking more along the lines of any special non-balance related bonuses which is why I say depending on how the game is designed.  If they are going to make the current Sea Trials like WoTs, then bonuses to XP earned and/or lower repair costs kind of like premium tanks.  Maybe for open world, it would be a reusable blueprint you buy for cash that lets you construct a the premium ships much cheaper using less materials, something like that.  

 

Premium ships that aren't offering any bonuses.... not sure how well they would sell, especially for open world use, unless they were very, very cheap, especially since as soon as the enemy sinks it once, it is gone.

Not a bad idea actually.

Is it in yet?

 

Unfortunately no but I think it would be a great addition, maybe even as a premium. It is a 4th rate in gun count but rather weakly armed with only 12lb and 8lb guns.  Love the styling and beauty of this ship though and would definitely be interested in sailing her at some point.

If you are prepared to sail something similar to the Mordaunt rather than the Mordaunt itself...

 

At the time Mordaunt was built the Royal Navy were building 40 gun 5th rates armed with 12lb/6lb gundecks and 50 gun 4th rates armed with 18lb/9lb gundecks. Privately build and designed for 46 guns Mordaunt was in between these two types and only carrying the calibers of a 5th rate.

 

So it would probably be possible to find a 50 gun 4th rate that would look very similar to the Mordaunt but being a little larger (around 130-135ft length) and more powerfully armed would be combat viable against most frigates, at the same time due to the smaller size (frigates are very large and expensive ships for the firepower carried) and age such a ship would be cheap, and could be useful in the convoy escort role or comparable duties where speed isn't the most important factor.
