 General Description

The Pirate Frigate is based on the Frigate and as such she looks(apart from paint job) and performs almost identically however due to her not being craftable will generally be worse than an exceptional Frigate due to modules. She can however carry larger guns on her weather deck.

Armament

The pirate frigate can mount either 18pd cannons or 32pd carronades on her gun deck and 12pd cannons or 24pd carronades on her weather deck. Her bow chasers consist of 6pd cannons or 24pd carronades

Deck Cannon Count Cannon Size Carronade Size
Gun Deck 26 18pd 32pd
Weather Deck 12 12pd 24pd
Bow Chasers 2 6pd 24pd

Characteristics

The Pirate Frigate is a good all round ship for all the frigate class ships, she has good armour, good guns and has decent speed, that means she has no obvious weaknesses, but no obvious strengths either. The pirate frigate is also a bit better than the regular Frigate of same quality having larger weather deck guns(6pd for Frigate vs 12pd for Pirate Frigate), getting a larger crew and a tiny bonus to boarding.

Sailing Profile of the Frigate

Here is the Sailing Profile of the Pirate Frigate. It is identical to that of the Frigate. She too is a fair deal bulkier than the lighter frigates, such as the Cerberus and Renommee, and her low turn rate, coupled with her difficulties sailing even 15 points from the wind make her a more challenging ship to sail than any of the smaller vessels with which a Captain may have become acquainted before her.

How to get the crafting recipe

The Pirate Frigate Blueprint can drop in the PvP Events from Ship Chests.
