Brig-of-war HDMS Lougen-class . Small, fast, powerful- These are the main characteristics of a brig-of-war. Speed up to 11 knots and unequaled maneuverability . The brig of war was the weapon of choice in skirmishes between pirates and merchant fleets. Equally loved and feared by pirates and pirate-suppressors. This model is based on data from Wikipedia, drawings from the Danish National Archives, a painting of the battle of West Kay and paintings of the battle of Copenhagen. The Lougen-class derives from the Ship HDMS Lougen which was the first Danish ship to be coppered. The original HDMS Lougen had a short but successful career 1791-1802 where she protected the Danish merchant fleet from British ships on several occasions. The success of the HDMS Lougen led to the construction of 10 brigs of similar design for the Danish-Norwegian navy The Lougen-Class or Stibolt-brigs in the period 1804-1807. The armament consists of 18x 18 pdr shortguns, and 2x 6 pdr chasers (this model has 4 to show all possible placements of chasers) On this model Ive moved away from my usual cross-sections as this ship is only has one deck below the open gun-deck. (To pirate ship fans: sorry no main cabin here, its all guns ) As the plans Ive seen of the area below deck is kind of a mess, I have designed it as an open space except from the base of the masts, pumps and ladders. On this ship I have changed the design of the capstan from my previous ones so it would fit a small ship such as the HDMS Lougen. The anchors and the boat is very similar to the ones designed for HMS Lively. The most obvious change is the colors of the boat that is changed to resemble the boats used by the Danish navy in the period. And to illustrate the size of HDMS Lougen: some shots with the HMS Lively. This entry is sort of a WIP, as she is currently being built. Follow the process in the Danish navy brig building journals: Chapter 1 all comments are very much appreciated.
