Characteristics

The 3rd rate is not a fast ship, the pavel is faster however she is more maneuverable than a pavel and she does not require as much crew. Compared to a Constitution however she is slower, and not as maneuverable however she has a lot more guns.

She is predictably a difficult ship to sail. While she displays the same preference for a broad reach as the other square-rigged vessels, she also displays notably weaker speeds when running before the wind than might be expected. Furthermore, her loss of speed when putting the helm towards the wind is rapid and can often be disastrous in engagements. On a positive note, she performs decently well relatively on a beam reach. In short, do not expect to perform any advanced maneuvers in the 3rd Rate as her low speed, bad turning rate and poor sailing profile combine to make a very challenging command for any Captain.
