Apologies in adv if this is yet another topic previously dicussed........

In DES TOUCHE, I was eventually made aware of what a great liability CONQUERANT is to the French. This is because she carries so little canvas.

A brief search shows that there have been several CON in French history. The 1760ish version I ruled out as being from the wrong era. The 1803ish version I ruled out because of its short and forlorn service record.

I presume that the CON version we are using is the 1812 version? If so, she is of the BUCENTAURE class of SOL. If this is so, why would she have sinificantly less sail than her sister ship?

Doesn't this shortcoming seriously handicap the French squadron? Is this intentional?

If you look at these Ships as a group, you will notice they are all standard Basic Rules Ships which have been "beefed" up for use in an Advanced Rules WS&IM game, (See also the original WS&IM board game rules). But, Conquerant was short-changed on 2 of her Rigging sections. This actually ends up helping to balance out the scenario in an odd way. I have always felt that this scenario is a mistake that should be removed until the Advanced Rules are implemented, and then this scenario should only be made available when using the Advanced Rules. But, some players like the overly-massive gun counts, and no one has been willing to admit it was a mistake that should be removed ...

Thank You
