Danish Fifth Rate

32 guns




I like it.


Every nation should get their own personal fifth rate and I hope this one will be for Denmark.



Ships of the same class:




20-24 guns 


Upper Deck: 20 x British 9pdr
Lower Gun Deck:2 x British 9-Pounder
Upper Gun Deck:20 x British 9-Pounder
Quarterdeck:2 x British 3-Pounder



It says it was designed for 140 crew. I think this could easily be the pocket frigate with easy reach of First Lieutenants. It would ease the pain of grinding so much.


I want it now. :lol:

I wouldn't mind seeing a Swan class 6th rate ,I'm actually building a model of Pegasus,(taken me about 3 years so far in my spare time currently coppering the hull - 1/64 scale copper plates suck to cut and fit!) ,the decorations make them unique for that rating of ship at the time.

La Malicieuse

French frigate

32 guns




High res:http://www.sothebys.com/es/auctions/ecatalogue/2011/un-hommage-au-xviiie-sicle-adriano-ribolzi-antiquaire/lot.81.html


Plan of sistership Brune:  http://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/82724.html



One the very few examples that ships could carry heavier armament than designed (8-Pounders/12-pounders) without great performance loss.

Blonde managed 10 knots close-hauled, 11-12 knots reaching 12-13 knots running, Brune 11 knots close-hauled and 12 running with a battery of 26 12-pounders.



Info Malicieuse:





Thank you very much for the info Malachi!

America British 5th Rate, 44 guns, 1749



I'd been looking all over for plans of a good demi-battery or two-decker fifth rate, given that true sailing frigates weren't around for about half of the Naval Action timeline. I could find the plans for the Roebuck-class two-deckers that were built after such ships became obsolete, or the demi-battery galley-frigate Charles Galley, but nothing in between two fairly broad extremes. There's already plenty of British and American ships in the game, and a pre-Independence New Hampshire-built British ship called America might be too much to bear, but its definitely a good example of a fifth-rate that's not a sailing frigate and an interesting alternative to the medium frigates currently in-game.

We really need more ships from other nations. Enough of the HMS. :)

Find some plans then.

Finding info and plans is not an easy job so don't discredit people's work so easily.

I agree that we need more non british ships but whether we like it or not GNM is the biggest source of plans and info of all nationalities but mostly British as expected.

It would be a nice Idea to implement the US Corvette USS General Pike into the Game. This ship would be unique thanks to its extremly high Masts which were about 59.5m high. In Original this ship was armed with 28 Guns which makes it to a Ship of the 5th Rate if it will be implemented. Due to it s Takelage with more Square Sails than normal ships of this Class and it s agressive and sharp lines it should performe awesome downwind but also my have problems with her role angle in Battle. It may also require a bigger sailing crew than other ships of this size. There are so many Pretty ships already in the Game and so many that would be great to be implemented but the Pike would really be unique in it s construcktion design.

heads up to ragnar who gave ne an epic hint with some options!


all thats left to do is details, details and more details..

@BungeeLemming & @weirdguy Are either of you still 3d modeling? I have gotten into it with intent to 3d print and cnc laser cut. I'm using Fusion 360 and would love to see some more of you models. Do you share on Thingyverse or MyMiniFactory or YouMagine, or any other share sites? You can find me on those 3 sites as Reh3dZone. I've uploaded only 1 model of a KV-2 springohead (bobblehead) so far, but intend to do more.
