HMS Surprise

Recommended Posts

The Surprise from the Master & Commander movie is a completely different ship (based on HMS Rose) and not related to the Surprise we have ingame.

Who knows 🙂 :

  • in-game Surprise and the modern replica of HMS Rose share the same stern and paint scheme 
  • both in-game Surprise and the plan of HMS Rose (1757) have no figure head

Did the devs use the plan of HMS Surprise (ex-Unité) or that of HMS Rose ? That's the (not crucial) question.

Figureheads is almost a big topic of discussion. Often there is not much details left on that matter and throughout the service of the ship, some of them changed their figureheads just like the names.

Due to the arangement of the deck arrangements and heights, and the bigger "belly" of the Rose, I would say ingame is original Surprise. But I do not have any proof, just guessing. Maybe a Hybrid? :)

But I am backing your desire of a remake of her model, since already some redos were done (Vic, Connie), and I really do want a corvette modell in the Connie classics quality. ❤️
