Com Chapter 1: Living in the Age of Sail Some of these warships, also called “liners,” were the largest ships in the world until the mid-19th century. ” Likewise, large passenger aircraft became airliners. On the other hand, large steel warships of the late 19th and early 20th century came to be known as battleships, derived from battleships of the line. ship the tiller: To fix the tiller in place. shipyard: A seaside establishment used to build, repair, arm, and equip ships. In the Age of Sail, this could include dry-docks; woodworking and cooper shops; facilities for producing ropes and sails; armories packed with a variety of firearms, swords, and artillery pieces (normally made elsewhere); naval stores, such as tar, pitch and paint; assorted ammunition; provisions—anything useful for a sea voyage.

Merchants were removed altogether and consigned to safer cargo duty. Battle lines became shorter and more homogeneous, containing only heavily armed men-of-war considered fit to fight in the line. These became known as ships of the line. In the mid-18th century, Admiral Anson (First Lord of the Admiralty in 1754) devised a plan to standardize ship types for the British Royal Navy. He divided ships of the line into three rates, with three additional rates for cruisers (ships smaller than a ship of the line).

As you cross over the enemy’s van, you can rake the front ships and hopefully deliver some massive crew damage while facing only the chaser guns at the bow. Once on the other side, your ships can fire at both sides of the enemy fleet; one side takes little return fire. A third melee tactic, “breaking the line,” involves pushing your ships through the enemy’s column. Once through, you can double back on the enemy’s rear or increase speed and double the enemy’s van. In either case, you’ve disrupted the enemy’s line and eliminated any advantages it may have afforded.
