General description:
The Vospero is probably one of the best Gunships you can get for the Spanish that won't eat a huge chunk of points. It's fast, has good guns, and costs only 12 points.

Uses:
With its guns and 4 Cargo, it is clearly designed for war. Use it to sink that Pesky Dover or Goliath

Strategies and game play:
With an S+S move you have to throw a Helmsman on with a Captain. The rank 3 guns make it very accurate for a spanish ship.

Combos with other miniatures:
The Castro from Spanish Main is a great addition, as well as a mandatory Captain.

Ways to counteract it:
Mermaids, use ships or crew that get a +1 against Spanish ships

Strengths/Pros:
S+S Base movement
3 rank guns
Good against English Ships

Weaknesses/Cons:
Only 4 masts

Artwork and aesthetics:
Not bad, I have always liked the Spanish Cross on the sails

Overall rating:
8 out of 10. It would be a ten if the guns were a 2 and it had 5 masts.

If the guns were a 2 and it had 5 masts you'd be looking at 20+ points!

Titan has the stats but why not knock a few points off and take the HMS Lord Algernon. It's got two's on the cannon's, three of which are L range, and it ignores the first hit it takes.

I'd rather have the Titan's extra action than ignoring the first hit. The Titan is also faster than the Algernon, and only 2 points more.
