Sails of Glory: HMS Concorde 1783
AresThe Concorde Class frigates were fifth-rate, 32-guns, fast and maneuverable ships. Three were built at Rochefort from 1777 to 1779 - the Courageuse, the Concorde and the Hermione. They were armed with twenty-six 12-pounder long guns on the main battery and lighter pieces of artillery � four 6-pounder guns on the forecastle and two on the poop deck � and were designed for a crew of 280.
The HMS Concorde 1783 was a frigate of the Royal Navy that had previously served in the French Navy under the name Concorde. Captured in February 1783 by HMS Magnificent, it returned to active service under the White Ensign after repairs with the outbreak of war with France in 1793.
The Hermione 1779 became famous in 1780, when she carried General Lafayette to the United States to bring help and support to the American insurgents in the American Revolutionary War.
