The Artésien was built in 1765 as part of a series of 12 ships of the line built to compensate losses endured by the French Royal Navy during the Seven Years' War. The Artésien took part in the American Revolutionary War, departing in 1781. A fine 1/28th scale model of the ship was used to instruct Louis XVI in naval studies and is now on display at the Musée de la Marine.
This ship pack can also be used to represent the French Artésien Class ship-of-the-line "Roland 1771."
Ship pack contains a new ship with base, ship card, ship log, and specific deck of maneuver cards.
