PirateGalleon
Huge and with a daunting amount of weaponry on board, the Pirate Galleon is one of the most powerful warships to ever sail the Etherium. In addition to her massive broadsiding capabilities, the Galleon can also grapple other ships, and unload a huge complement of sword-wielding boarders. The only downside to this monster is her very slow speed, and vulnerability to Torpedoes and Mines, but her incredible durability allows her to survive long enough to pound her enemies into scrap.

OverviewEdit

The Galleon is an extremely durable ship with massive broadside firepower, but with low speed and manoeuvrability. It has less point-defence that other ships of this size, which can make it more susceptible to Mines and Torpedoes. The Galleon is the most durable ship in the game, this is due to its large number of layers. However, this combined with the Galleon's slow speed, makes it vulnerable to Mortars. The Galleon has the greatest crew count of out any ship, making it the best ship in the game at boarding.

Battle StrategyEdit

The Galleon has huge broadside firepower, and has three Harpoon Guns per broadside which can keep enemies in still for your broadsides, or enable you to send you massive crew in to take their ship via boarding. You can if you want, replace the broadside Heavy Cannons with Carronades, which are better against other large ships at close range, especially once they are locked in place with Harpoons. However, its harder to hit smaller ships with them, and they have less range.

Counter-TacticsEdit

The Galleon has very weak frontal firepower, with only two Gatling Guns. Stay in front of the Galleon to be as safe as possible, although it can actually still fire the aftercastle Medium Cannons forward if it turns slightly as well as backwards. This makes its frontal and rearward firepower better than it is on paper, but still much safer than facing its sides. The Galleon is weak to Mortars, Torpedoes and Mines. If you have Plasma Cannons, then you can out range the Galleon, and wear it down from a distance if you have to. The Pirates don't have access to them, so you can be sure they won't match your range.
