History

The Wapen von Hamburg of 1722 was a convoy ship built in the German city of Hamburg. Her name translates to "Weapons-" or "Arms of Hamburg" and many sources spell her wrong – giving her a complete different meaning. "Wappen" with two p means "coat of arms".

She was ordered by the Hamburg Admirality as well as by Hamburg House of Trade. Her main purpose was as a convoy ship protecting trading fleets from attacks by corsairs and pirates.

The Wapen we have in game was the 3rd ship of her name and replaced the former Wapen von Hamburg II after her 32years of duty. The new vessel served her porpose until 1737 when she was sold to a private Tradesman and converted to an armed merchant vessel.

Originally her main gundeck held 6x18pd cannons combined with 16x 12pd guns. Followed up by the 2nd gundeck which was pierced with 26x9pd cannons and the weatherdecks were armed with 4pd cannons.

During her service time the Wapen never sailed under full crewcapacity. Her fear factor was considered enough thread for any enemy ship which considered attacking her or her convoy.
