Notes

  • The translation is inexact, but identifies the best match.
  • Some ships, especially the ‘tower ships’ have no clear western equivalent.
  • The names of the different types of ship were used over many centuries both prior to and after the introduction of gunpowder. Where the equivalent ship type has a TL (and Navigation) pre-requisite this is also applied here. To gain the new capabilities any existing ship units must be disbanded and rebuilt, or retain the earlier unit code.
