Building the British Royal NavyDesigned by: Ben Rosset
The end of the Napoleonic Wars left Britain as the world’s unchallenged naval superpower. But over the next hundred years, the Royal Navy would be continually tested. Britain’s policy of maintaining a Navy equal in size to the next two largest combined navies meant that it had to continually build, upgrade, and renew its fleet. These hundred years would see Britain’s Navy go from a fleet of all wooden ships powered by the wind, to one of all steel running on steam power and coal. Frequent challenges from other nations, including France, Germany, Italy, and Russia, required the Royal Navy to continue to build, and build big. “In Her Majesty’s Service” gives you a chance to build warships for Britain during this exciting and turbulent period in the History of the Royal Navy. You are a shipbuilder building and delivering ships to the Royal Navy. So sign your contracts, purchase your materials, and then get to work building the most awesome Naval fleet the world has ever seen.
