Greek Corvette Loudovikos(Louis)

Recommended Posts

Loudovikos was a corvette of the Hellenic Navy built in 1838 at the Poros Naval Shipyard, designed by naval architect Georgios Tombazis. It was a relatively large ship (length 44.1 m, 1000-ton displacement), was armed with two 22-lb plus four 20-lb long guns, and twenty-four 32-lb carronades, and had a crew of 182. The ship was not operationally utilized, and since 1846 it was used as a training ship (renamed Messolongion in 1862). It officially remained in service with the Hellenic Navy until 1873.

Yes it is but not by that much and i think that the design is not that modern for the time it was launched.  :D

Unfortunately yes,she was launched kinda late but as I said in a previous post the design is not that modern at all.The museum researcher that I asked about the plans said the same thing.Especially if you consider that sail ships were starting to get replaced by steam ships.

Also I think that we don't have many corvette plans kicking around so just give her a chance D:

Getting the plans for her was really hard
