Description

ProtŽe was built in 1772 and designated as flagship of a convoy directed to India, departing with other ships as escort, transporting troops and ammunition. On 23 February, off Spain, the convoy met Rodney’s fleet; Duchilleau, commander in charge, tried to lure the British by continuing on the same bearing, while the convoy escaped, escorted by the other ships. The British fleet chased and captured ProtŽe.
This ship pack can also be used to represent the French ArtŽsien Class ship-of-the-line ÒEveillŽ 1772.Ó
