PirateBarque
Augmented with extra sails and weapons, the Pirate Barque is a moderately speedy ship, and a much more formidable threat than it's civilan counterpart. While not quite equivalent to modern frigates, the Pirate Barque can use its speed to get out of most any situation it can't handle.

Battle StrategyEdit

Since this ship is very durable, being made from reinforced wood entirely, combined with good firepower it is a good ship for brawling. The high crew count and Harpoon placement encourages boarding, and it is easy to keep up with ships due to its speed allowing you to board easier. You can replace the front facing Cannon with an Energy Net to enhance this further. The Arcturian Fire on the back is very useful for blowing away sails, and also can be used for some supporting damage to the hull. If you equip an Energy Net, it can be a good idea to also use Carronades, as it will make it much easier to land them, and maintain a close distance.
