Naval Action – Redoutable
This is a premium consumable ship. It is not refundable.
Redoutable (formerly Le Suffren) is a Duquesne variant of one of the most
successful and numerous 3rd rate ship of the line designs – Temeraire. She was
designed by Sane and built in Brest in 1792.
Guns – 82
Crew – 690
This sturdy ship is famous for bravely fighting three British ships of the
line (HMS Victory, HMS Temeraire and HMS Tonnant) during the battle of
Trafalgar, under the command of Captain Lucas.
Redoubtable was one of the focal points of the battle, closely engaging
Victory and eventually causing the mortal wound which took Admiral Horatio
Nelson’s life. At one point in the battle, Redoutable had almost boarded
Victory and only the intervention of Temeraire saved the British Flagship. She
was then engaged in a gun battle with Victory, Temeraire, and eventually
Tonnant. As a result of being engaged by three British ships, the mighty
Redoubtable was eventually subdued with only 99 men from her crew of 690 still
fit. If every Allied ship had fought like Redoubtable, the outcome of the
Battle of Trafalgar may have been very different. Captain Lucas was presented
with the Legion of Honour by Napoleon for his conduct.
You now can sail the beautiful Redoutable in Naval Action.
