Variants

Other variants of the 'Bahamut' Refit Bark:

History

In the 18th century, the British Royal Navy used the term bark for a nondescript vessel which did not fit any of its usual categories. Thus, when on the advice of Captain James Cook, a collier was bought into the navy and converted for exploration she was called HM Bark Endeavour. She happened to be a ship-rigged sailing vessel with a plain bluff bow and a full stern with windows. read more...

Strategy and Use

A viable Port Battle ship for Buccaneers. Relatively inexpensive and can take and deliver a large amount of punishment. Its unusual in that it's heaviest guns are the fewest.

This ship, like similar lineships, is best used in large group battles to avoid a smaller more maneuverable frigate from taking advantage of its slow turning in order to rake it stem to stern.
