NA Ship 4th Rate Ingermanland
Ingermanland is a 4th Rate Ship of the Line mounting 62 guns. The Ingermanland is currently the smallest ship of the line in game however dont underestimate her since she can carry 32pd cannons on her bottom gun deck.
The Ingermanland even though it was originally built in 1715 has excellent sailing qualities, she even outspeeds the much more modern and the previous speed queen(of the ships of line), the Pavel by .07 knots(which granted, isnt a lot but she is more than .3 knots faster than all other ships of the line). The turn rate of the Ingermanland is also something not to be ignored as she turns better than the Constitution. The Ingermanland as a result is a an excellent ship of the line however she suffers from poor structure, being worse than the Constitution as a result the Ingermanland has to rely on its superior speed and maneuverability versus other ships of the line to survive.
She is in many ways the final stepping stone between the maneuverability of the frigates and the sluggishness of the largest lineships. Her preference for a broad reach is clear and the loss of speed as she approaches a beam reach is more notable than in smaller ships. Finally, her speeds upwind drops very rapidly. In most respects, the Ingermanland behaves like the Constitution in terms of sailing, although her turn rate is slightly higher.
