Notes on Action

Ottoman Fleet ListNWF
The list of vessels for the Ottoman fleet is based on the latest research carried out by Emir Yenir and his collegue Levent Düzcü in the Ottoman Archives. Partially based on "Document ID: Cevdet Bahriye 2517; Document Date: 15 Ramazan 1204 (29 May 1790)". Which is an inspection list of the Ottoman ships sent to Black Sea and the Mediterranean for the 1790 campaign year.

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
