The Mortar brig is the slowest ship in the game currently and has a very poor turn rate, however she does have the advantage of being the only ship with mortars, which can do a massive amount of damage.


Here is the Sailing Profile for the Mortar Brig. She handles most like her larger sister ship the Navy Brig. She handles best on a broad reach and is relatively comfortable with the wind anywhere abaft her beam. She does lose a fair amount of speed when running the wind. Likewise, she experiences the normal square-rigged loss of speed when sailing upwind. Notably, however, she displays an odd specific fondness for point 45, where she performs strangely better than the surrounding points.
