Ship Introduction - Ship-of-the-line, light

Ship-of-the-line, light

Ship-of-the-line was designed to be used in line formation. This way they could sail past the enemy and fire a broadside after broadside in rapid succession. Light ship-of-the-line has around fifty heavy cannons on two decks. They are not agile or fast ships. If the enemy decides to make a run for it, ship-of-the-line would have hard time to catch up. Being able to transport large number of marines, ships-of-the-line are also excellent when attacking enemy ports.
