Description

The Portland class was a class of British 4th rate ships, armed with 50 cannons and with a designed crew of 350 men. They were armed with 22 24–Pounder guns in the lower deck, 22 12–Pounder guns in the upperdeck, 4 6–Pounder guns in the quarterdeck, and 2 6–Pounder guns in the forecastle.Petit Annibal was originally a British ship, the HMS Hannibal, built by Adams of Bucklers Hard and launched on 26 December 1779. She was subsequently captured by the French ship Héros off the coast of Sumatra, in 1782. She was called Petit Annibal to distinguish her from the eponymous 74–gun Annibal, which was in the same fleet. Admiral Bailli de Suffren took her into his fleet, and she saw service in his five battles against British Admiral Sir Edward Hughes in 1782 and 1783. She was decommissioned in 1787 and used as a hulk from 1792.The ship base, ship card and ship log are printed on two sides–the game data of a second ship is printed on the back. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French Portland Class “Leander 1798.”Designed to be used with the tactical ship–to–ship game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Andrea Mainini, each Sails of Glory® Ship Pack is a ready–to–play model, painted and assembled, 100% compatible with any other Sails of Glory game product.In each pack you will find all you need to play the ship: a special base with gaming stats, a ship log and, a specific deck of maneuver cards.
