The pavel is an 82 gun 2nd rate ship of the line. She has 3 gun decks and can also mount cannons on her quarter deck(although a lot of people prefer not to mount them)
The Pavel is heavily armed being able to carry 42 pd cannons on her lower gun deck, 24pd cannons on her middle gun deck and being able to carry either 6pd cannons or 24 pd carronades on her top gun deck, on her quarter deck she can either mount 6pd cannons or she can mount 24pd carronades, however due to weird aiming a lot of players opt to not mount any guns on the quarter deck. The pavel does not have any bow chasers and her stern chasers are limited to 68pd carronades.
|Deck||Cannon Count||Cannon Size||Carronade Size|
|Bottom Gun Deck||30||42pd||N/A|
|Middle Gun Deck||28||24pd||N/A|
|Top Gun Deck||20||6pd||24pd|
The Pavel is a fast ship for her size and can in some cases even catch up to frigates, however she suffers from relatively poor maneuverability and high crew count(which depending on rank and what you use the ship for, can be either a negative or a positive), the lack of bow chasers also is bit of a problem for chases. The armament of the Pavel is also a strange one with her gun deck and quarter castle having 6pd cannons, which against other ships of the line will simply not penetrate thus being useless against ships of the line and some think of it as a waste of crew, however versus a 3rd rate the 42pd on her bottom gun deck and the 24pd on the middle gun deck more than make up for it.
How to get Crafting recipe
You can get the crafting recipe of the Pavel through either crafting Constitutions, 3rd rates, Bellonas, Ingermanlands or by breaking up Pavels, however this is not recommended as the Pavel is an expensive ship to produce
