TerranMan-O-War
This is the most powerful ship in the entire Navy. The Man-o-War possesses a broadside powerful enough to eradicate a sloop in one volley, and can take amazing punishment. Although these flagships are slow and awkward to manoeuvre, they are extremely heavily armed with weapons and boarding party fighters.

OverviewEdit

The Imperial Man of War is a Ship of the Line with massive broadside firepower and durability, but is slow and hard to manoeuvre. The Man of War has a tremendously powerful broadside, consisting of 4 heavy guns, 4 medium guns and 3 light guns. However, it has inferior chase guns to its Procyon Man-o-War counterpart. The Man of War is a very robust ship, with fairly few layers for a ship of its size. However, most of these layers are very durable. The lower number of layers makes the Man of War less susceptible to Mortars than the Pirate Galleon and Procyon Man of War.

Battle StrategyEdit

The Man of War is a versatile ship. The main source of its power is of course the massive broadsides you can deliver, which will smash any smaller ship, and tear apart even the larger ones very quickly. Try to keep your enemies on the broadside the best you can, and use the Grav Charges to help with this if possible. The Star Mortar can be useful for long range, providing you can hit it, if not an extra Cannon can be useful for more consistent damage, but generally an Arcturian Fire is more useful, which can blow away their sails very easily. The Gatling Guns are useful too, but Lancers can be more versatile if you want that, while still being useful against sails. Due to the Man of War's slow turning rate, using smaller, more manoeuvrable ships for support can be useful. As this will prevent enemies from being able to exploit the Man of War's lack of manoeuvrability.

Counter-TacticsEdit

If possible, avoid allowing the Man of War to bring its broadside guns to bear, as a full broadside from a Man of War is devastating to even the strongest of ships. Always try to stay behind or in front of it, and avoid the broadside. Since its very slow to turn, it is possible to keep the up most the time. Carronades are very effective against this massive ship, as well as Mortars. Torpedoes and Mines are less effective than usual against this ship, as it has a lot of point-defence.
