    The Royal Navy would have proved somewhat problematic to the privateers, but by using unorthodox tactics, would have had more successes than failures.

    Between the enormous capability of the Royal Navy, and Admiral Lord Nelson; I believe we might've been flying the Union Jack again. Herbster, I think a 74-gun Ship-of-the-Line would be something a bit more than "problematic"…and England had a bunch of them…we had none. Game over.
