French Navy Xebex

by

Bonaparte made a fantastic french navy Xebex. Xebex was a Mediterranean sailing ship that was used mostly for trading but quoting Bonaparte itself here’s his description of this masterpiece:

Xebecs were used in the Mediterranean by French corsairs mainly for quick interception and getaway. The corsairs favored the xebec for its speed and maneuverability, and for its shallow draft which also aided in escaping larger vessels. These qualities were recognized by many of the European navies, and the vessel was quickly adopted into the Mediterranean squadrons as commerce-raiders and anti-piracy cruisers. – by Bonaparte.
