Not to critisize Disney, but the class of galleon was very outdated by the time that POTC took place, especially as military ship put to sail to an uncharted land to destroy something. Ferdinand would not send three old cheaps for such a mission. Just raising the point. Any other opinions on why they should have sent something newer...such as Great Frigates or Frigates?
I already foresee that J Fan is going to say something totally logical and put me into my place :D
- As I already said, POTC is full of historical innacuracies. You have modern flags of Spain and Britain, ships from the late 18th century (the HMS Iterceptor/Lady Washington and the Edinburgh Trader/HMS Bounty), wrong uniformes, etc. Still, Pirates of the Caribbean is the best pirate film series ever. So I wouldn't complain so much. UskokSea Queen, Nemesis 07:09, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
