|Bottom Gun Deck||28||32pd||N/A|
|Middle Gun Deck||28||24pd||N/A|
The Bellona rate is not a fast ship, the Pavel is faster however she is more maneuverable than a Pavel and she does not require as much crew. Compared to a Constitution however she is slower, and not as maneuverable however she has a lot more guns. Bellona is also practically the same as the 3rd rate with the exception of being able to mount 32pd on the bottom gun deck, if you mount 32pd on bottom gun deck the Bellona is also a tiny bit slower.
How to get Crafting recipe
You can get the crafting recipe of the Bellona trough random drops by either crafting 3rd rates or constitutions, or by breaking up Bellonas, breaking up Bellonas is however not recommended as the Bellona is an expensive ship to produce.
