NA Ship 6th Rate Niagara

General Information

Description

The Niagara being so long and thin has great speed at all points of sail (for a square rigger that is), she has good structure being the same as the Navy Brig and Mercury, she does however turn slower but this should not be a problem thanks to her excellent speed and massive fire power for a brig almost matching the light Frigate the Cerberus.

She sails much like the other brigs - doing well at any point from a beam reach and beyond but sailing at her fastest at point 135. Like the Mercury, the Niagara is relatively forgiving when pushed further upwind than a beam reach to around point 75, but after that will suffer a rapid speed decrease. Overall, she is one of the stronger sailors of the brigs in the game, but does not compare favorably to your other options at the same rank; the Cerberus light frigate.
