The title pretty much says it all.

If you have a nice screenshot of a naval battle, with sinkings and explosions and other exciting things, post them here.

Two rules:
  1. Make the images thumbnails
  2. Please give a brief description for the picture


Feel free to comment on people's screenshots.


Thanks to Legion Of Hell for giving me the idea for the thread

I'll start it off with some screenshots from a battle I fought last night.

A Pirate fleet attacked one of my West Indies trading stations, but fortunately I had a couple of Fluyts stationed there.


A Pirate 5th Rate founders, with its side practically blown away.


View from a Fluyt as a Xebec explodes


Boom! A closer view.


And the aftermath. Has anyone else seen a ship break in half? It's the first time I have.


What pictures does everyone else have?

Pitt that exsplotion was nice, dont like those pirates, anyway so its good you sank them.

But one picture who would been cool was a line of ship exsplording. And a boarding pic, love to see the men fight at the deck of the ships.

Well...I know how to insert an image but not a thumbnail. It's not in the BBCode list. I'll be happy to provide a couple of images.

My mind is like a steel sieve.

Which image-hosting website are you using? If it's photobucket, click on more >> underneath the BBCode displayed to see the thumbnail link.

I imagine imageshack is similar.

Gaius has posted some FAQs about screenshots here.

Another French ship is destroyed by the Triath nan Eilean, the largest warship in India.

I'll have some good pictures soon. I've just send the Triath nan Eilean, with ships of a similar size, Domhnall and Amazon, into the Americas. The French and Spanish have several large fleets there, although they're mostly small ships. The results should be a lot of explosions.

There's also a ship the same size as Triath nan Eilean, which the French captured from Georgia. I intend to find it, and destroy it (I don't need to capture it, I have three of the things). The explosion should take out the Spanish garrison in Cuba.

Is it just me, or are there more naval explosions after patch 1.4?


View of a Barbary galley from a 4th Rate; you can see the sailors being blown off the other ship by the explosion


The aftermath. It's still burning, even though it's under water!

I would have to say Pitt that the picture with the men being thrown from the galley is the best I have ever seen. It looks like a mini-nuke being detonated. Very dramatic. Well done sir!

Certain metals will burn even if submerged completely in water (magnesium being a prime example). Though I doubt there was much of that in the 18th century. Perhaps it was phosphorus.

Life was much easier before I developed a sense of ethics.

Maybe it was carrying Greek fire ...
