Default Re: Carronades

Antonio:

Unfortunately, as you have noticed, gun variation is not _directly_ modeled in Salvo, so you can not see how many Carronades or 32 Pounders, or whatnot your ship has. While it is not directly modeled, it is factored into the default ship Quality Factors for the US and England. Their ships do a little better (due to the QF) than other ships with the same number of guns. (Unless those ships have been improved in a campaign.)

Exact and accurate armament will be a decoded factor in Salvo II, or whatever the next version is called.
