64-guns Third Rate Ships-of-the-Line

Ship Pack

Ardent, Intrepid and Inflexible are classes of 3rd rate ships of the line, armed with 64 cannons and with a designed crew of around 500.

HMS Agamemnon 1781 / HMS Raisonnable 1768

The Ardent class ships were designed for the Royal Navy by Sir Thomas Slade using as a reference the French ship Fougueux. These ships were armed with 26 24–Pounder guns in the lower deck, 26 18–Pounder guns in the upperdeck, 10 9–Pounder guns in the quarterdeck, 2 9–Pounder guns in the forecastle.

HMS Agamemnon sailed and fought in the American Revolutionary, French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, taking part in the major naval battles of those conflicts. Lord Nelson served as captain on this ship during her service in the Mediterranean Sea. She was frequently in need of repair and refitting, but she fought at the Battle of Trafalgar forcing the surrender of the Spanish Santísima Trinidad. This ship ended her career in South America, wrecking on the shoal of Rio de la Plata.

This ship pack can also be used to represent the British Ardent class ship of the line “HMS Raisonnable 1768”.

HMS Polyphemus 1782 / HMS America 1777

HMS Polyphemus was laid down at Sheerness in 1782 and commissioned in 1799 under the command of Captain G. Lumsdaine. She sailed in the North Sea Fleet on the Baltic Sea until 1802. In 1805, Capt. Robert Redmill commanded her in the Battle of Trafalgar, where she engaged the French ships Neptune and Achille and captured the Spanish ship Argonauta. She was later in service along the French coast and in the Americas.

HMS Africa 1781 / HMS Vigilant 1774

The Inflexible–class ships were designed for the Royal Navy by Sir Thomas Slade, based on his earlier design for the Albion class.

HMS Africa participated to the last battle of the American War of Independence, at Cuddalore in 1783. She returned to England once news of the peace arrived and was present at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, engaging the combined Franco–Spanish fleet in battle. She later fought in the Baltic Sea during the Gunboat War and, under the command of Captain John Bastard, Africa was part of the War of 1812, failing to catch the USS Constitution.
