A 3rd rate ship, as defined by the British rating system, was a ship of the line which mounted between 64-80 guns. Usually, this would mean two gun decks. Despite their relative size and power compared to larger 1st and 2nd rates, it was considered that 3rd rates maintained an effective, perhaps even superior balance between sailing ability, firepower and cost.
The 3rd Rates Squadron kit is generic, meaning you can use it to represent ships of any nation. The frame has options for you to customise your ships, in the form of differing figureheads and stern plates; enabling you to make your fleet truly unique.
The 3rd Rates Squadron box contains all you need to get these vessels to the tabletop. These are suitable for navies of any nation.
This box set contains:
3 plastic 3rd Rates
Bobbin for rigging
Sheets of flags & pennants
