Naval Battles


The aim of historic naval battles was to try to get cannon balls into your opponents cannon - a very trick maneuver on choppy seas. If the objective is achieved, it becomes the aim of your opponent to fire the ball back to your cannon. The most number of times this has been achieved was a remarkable 21 times during the battle of Trafalgar.
The downside to this is that the ship can become badly damaged if the target is missed. The prohibitive cost of damaged ships is one of the primary reasons these battles are no longer waged.
