Black Seas: French Navy Fleet (1770 – 1830)

The French Navy has a history of highs and lows, both in terms of successesin battle and in the number and quality of its ships. In the mid-1700s, afterthe defeats of the Seven Years’ War, the French Navy was at a nadir. However,due to the efforts of Louis XV and later Louis XVI, France rebuilt andreinforced its fleets with well-designed and well-built ships.

Why sail the French Navy?

Though French gunnery and training had formally equalled that of its Spanishand British counterparts prior to the French revolution, those events severelyweakened the French Navy. High ranking officers had been removed or evenguillotined, and inexperienced crewmen through necessity had been promoted.

French ships, however, were generally well built, and quick. This isreflected in the national special rules for the French Navy. They are able topurchase both the ‘sturdy’ and ‘streamlined’ upgrades for a discountedcost. French crews were also trained to shoot high, in order to capture enemyships rather than destroy them. As such, they do not suffer the same penaltiesto hit when aiming high as the other navies do.
