we need corvettes! Especially French Ones! Dunno if Navy brigs (...) count as corvettes do they??

Strictly speaking, following the french terminology, a brig is a brig (2 masts) and a corvette is a corvette (3 masts).

British terminology may be more elastic (Brig, Brig-sloop, sloop, sloop-of-war, corvette...) depending on the period, ship size... ? Can't say exactly.

The term wasn´t really used outside of France until the start of the 19th century and it could describe all kinds of 'small' war ships.

I´ve seen a danish plan (dated 1824) for a 'corvette' with 28* 18-pounders and 10 24-pounder carronades. Quite a corvette :P
