I have to confess that I didn't fight many naval battles when the game came out first but I'm fighting more of them now and every now and then, you get a right rare tussle.

Last night I (Marathas) fought an engagement in the eastern Med with the Ottomans.
They had 3 3rd rates, 2 4th rates, 2 6th rates, two trade ships and a bomb ketch.
I had three 2nd rates and two 4th rates.

I was in single line formation and targetted the bomb ketch first. That went down quickly enough having landed one heavy hit on my first 2nd rate, which went on fire. I then tried to eliminate the 3rd rates but the smaller ships were causing me problems with their mobility so I had to take out the trade ships and 6th rates. During this chaotic time, I lost both 4th rates and a 2nd rate routed but I finally had them down to their three 3rd rates with my two 2nd rates. A game of cat and mouse ensued and I sank a 3rd rate but my 2nd rate took an awful pounding and was on the point of routing when a lucky turn saw one of the remaining enemy ships get snagged on wreckage. I used my good 2nd rate to send the unlucky sods to Davy Jones' locker.

With this news, the spirits of the wavering ship recovered and it became a race against time for two damaged 2nd rates to sink an undamaged 3rd rate. This was achieved...just about and the surviving three ships limped home to port in Syria.

Tell tales of your great sea battles here or post cool naval battle screenshots.

A very chaotic battle against the Turks and I was lucky enough to capture an explosion. See the top right.
