Product Description

The Ocean-class was a series of 16 first-rate 118-gun ships of the line of the French Navy, designed by engineer Jacques-Noel Sane. Along with the 74-gun of the Temeraire type and the 80-gun of the Tonnant type, the Ocean 120-gun type was to become one of the three French standard types of battleships during the war period 1793 to 1815. These were the most powerful ships of the Napoleonic Wars, and a total of ten served during that time. The Orient was an Ocean-class 118-gun French ship-of-the-line. Flagship of the rear-admiral Martin during the Battle of Genoa in 1795, she is mostly famous for its role as flagship of the French squadron during the Invasion of Egypt. During the Battle of the Nile, on August, 1st 1798 - the celebrated victory that made Lord Nelson a hero - the Orient came under fire from five enemy ships; the ammunition storage caught fire and the ship detonated. Her spectacular destruction that day is commemorated by paintings and poems. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French ship-of-the-line "Austerlitz 1808".
