Neptunus 1718 was built by Richard Kosents in accordance with favorite Peter's the Grate ship Ingermanland! It is possible to state they were sister-ships but different classes because of armament value! Neptunus carried never 6-pouder guns, because main gun sizes were after 1710 8-,12-,24-pouder! 24-POUDER guns were gundeck in amount of 30 guns; 26 12-pouder guns were on upper deck; 7 8-pouder guns were on quater deck;
