This is a simple French fleet that won a game. Of the stuff I have on hand currently (about 8 ships from each of the Big 6) it's one of the best fleets I could make. 0LR +5's were not used in the game, and forts and UT's were not available either.

Strategy is very simple, the Lyon protects the runners by playing offense and tries to disable or sink the best enemy gunship, which should happen if you get the first shot with S+S+S speed and rank-1 guns.

The Intrepide and St. Joan are the runners, with Mont Blanc as a very effective deterrent as well as a measure of extra firepower.

In the game the Intrepide towed the Mont Blanc. The St. Joan has the speed to reach an island further than the Intrepide, which means that you might want her to tow the flotilla. I listed it separately and the player could decide when he sees the opposing fleet and island setup.

Thanks for looking; comment and vote!

English ships get +1 to their cannon rolls against this ship.

The English reserve a special hatred for L'Intrepide, who true to her name goes where others fear to tread - most especially among the English royal fleet.

Galley. L-range cannons cannot hit this ship.

This ship's crew swears that Joan of Arc herself protects her. Not even the Knights of Malta dare to claim otherwise.

Flotilla. Extended Range. When this ship hits another ship, you choose which mast is eliminated.

Not really suited to the French corsair fighting style, the Mont Blanc is used more for port protection than actual battle.
