118-guns Ocean Class Ships-of-the-Line

Ship Pack

The Océan-class was a series of 16 first-rate 118-gun ships of the line of the French Navy, designed by engineer Jacques-Noël Sané. Along with the 74-gun of the Téméraire type and the 80-gun of the Tonnant type, the Océan 120-gun type was to become one of the three French standard types of battleships during the war period 1793 to 1815. These were the most powerful ships of the Napoleonic Wars, and a total of ten served during that time.

Montagne 1793

The Montagne, originally called “Océan”, was a French 118-gun first-rate three-decker ship of the line, the lead ship of her class. After several name changes, she became “Montagne” in October 1793. As Montagne, the ship was the flagship of Rear-Admiral Villaret-Joyeuse in the famous battle known as the “Glorious First of June”, where she was badly damaged by the HMS Royal Sovereign. In 1795 she was renamed “Océan” again. She served in the French Navy until 1855. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French ship-of-the-line “Commerce de Marseille 1788”.

Orient 1791

The Orient was an Océan-class 118-gun French ship-of-the-line. Flagship of the rear-admiral Martin during the Battle of Genoa in 1795, she is mostly famous for its role as flagship of the French squadron during the Invasion of Egypt. During the Battle of the Nile, on August, 1st 1798 – the celebrated victory that made Lord Nelson a hero – the Orient came under fire from five enemy ships; the ammunition storage caught fire and the ship detonated. Her spectacular destruction that day is commemorated by paintings and poems. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French ship-of-the-line “Austerlitz 1808”.

Impérial 1805

The Impérial was a first-rate 118-gun French ship-of-the-line of the Océan class. Designed by Jacques-Noël Sané, she was launched on 1 October 1803 and completed in February 1804 under the name “Vengeur”. She was renamed to Impérial in March 1805. The Impérial was the French flagship in the Battle of San Domingo on February, 6th 1806. Severely damaged and surrounded by several British ships, she was beached by her captain to prevent her sinking and capture; a few days later the British set fire to the wreck, destroying it. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French ship-of-the-line “République Française 1802”.
