    I do not understand why not use the same frigate and galleone models like the colonies factions.
    We need no extra class for the kings frigate.
    Maybe a free promotion for advanced fighting for the kings unit.
    It is good or for the start a good place holder in my opinion.

    Guys, this is getting off topic again.
    If you want to start discussion about a "supply system" please create a new thread. :thumbsup:

    When you click the links Ray provided he labels them as a Clipper and a Schooner.

    A Schooner has no definitive number of masts. It is defined by the peculiar sail rig that looks a bit like a chinese junk or a Dhao instead of a square sail. It can have 1, 2,3 or 4 masts

    After 1880, and thus out of the games timeframe, there have even been Schooners with 5 masts in the US

    or even 6 masts...

    Article says "Three-masted schooners were introduced around 1800." Which kinda supports the perception that a Schooner in the game time frame would be a two-mast at most, a smaller and quicker vessel requiring smaller crew complement. But, yes, that image fits a late 19th/early 20th century Schooner. And its very pretty. Lol
