Very nice with a lot of impressive firepower for such a small vessel!  *y*
The green color is pretty nice too. Battle on!  *sweet*

Nice frigate! Obviously, the red clipper or whatever the red sailed ship is called will win, it has two cannons forecastle. Of course, the enemy is to port so they can't aim, or the enemy might shoot the others first. :-D

...
Usually these vessels would probably be considered Cutters  :-/
and would need at least about 20 cannons to be considered a frigate  ;-)
Just for your info X-D

Hey Atlack,
I got these two ships in the Index of MOC Ships.

I'd say there were too big for even cutters, given that ship thats included with the Imperial Trading Post has been titled "The Cutter"

I just classing the ship with real sailing ships of the late 18th century.
A cutter, in some of the books i've read, refer to any war type ship with less than 10 long guns. ;-)
