This is for the "Sink the El Acorazado " challenge.

I'm going tiny cheese- double elimination ships. Because- REASONS!

Le Mont Blanc , Santos Romanos , Delaware , & Sea Lizard
Most with atleast Helmsman & Captain.

There is no gold running in this fleet. This fleet is on a seek and destroy mission.
Le Monte Blanc is the front runner- with both L Range Cannons and S^3 movement.
Santos Romanos is second, with S^3 movement but only one L-Range cannon.
Delaware is the slowest, with only L+S movement and only one L-Range cannon.
Sea Lizard brings up the rear, and is mostly a suicide runner- With Cap'n Jack to ram him and try to eliminate some crew. I was thinking of using Mysion, but without any Gold running- Parley is moot.

Yes, this fleet is rather flimsy- predominately 2-mast ships, but at most the El Acorazado would only be able to destroy one ship and render another derelict on good day. if all my cannons hit, i should still prevail over a war of attrition.

This could work, but you're going to need some luck with the cannons.

Best case scenario I can see:
The Santos Romanos could get close and get cancelled on purpose. Then the Sea Lizard could hit to take care of Vega. The other 2 ships then go 4/4 to eliminate 4 masts from the Acorazado. I appreciate the gamble, but when you only have two guns available per shoot action, you need both to hit in order to even dent the Acorazado.

Hawkins is a nice touch, and once the Acorazado is missing some masts, the swarm aspect of this fleet might be able to ram her derelict and win that way.

Soon we'll see how it fares!
