    Dobbs, I went Concorde for Insurgente because the two classes were drawn up in response to the same Marine Ministry specification, rather like the A-9 vs A-10, F-16 vs YF-17 and F-22 vs YF-23...

    Off the top of my head, for the moment I would just use an unmodified SGN103 straight from the box as an American 12pdr 32. American shipbuilding techniques were largely just iterating on English...

    Frankly, I'd say British and French are pretty well matched for historical performance. Spanish... well, there is always the Massive Point Discount option. I understand why Ares did the stats the way...

    As late as the 1880's-1890s there was a belief that at 100mph the lungs wouldn't be able to pull enough oxygen from the air and you'd suffocate; unless you were travelling via the Empire State...

    Susan, I wasn't there, but right now I'd use SGN108 for Neptune/Temeraire/Dreadnought and SGN201 the other Second Rates with the stats of Royal George or Britannia; for ST I'd take a Meregildos,...

    To elaborate, the overpower on Spanish ships is serious. The numbers on the Nepomucenos assume a 36#/24# or 36#/18# LD/UD load, but most of the time Spanish 74's only packed 24#'s on the LD and 18's...

    If I had my way, I'd kickstart us by having Ares partner with Rod Langton and basically mirror his entire catalog, then build out from there.
