Paddle ships

Paddle ships

The use of wheel paddles in China originates from the Middle Ages, when large vessels were needed for navigating China’s substantial riparian environment. These ships, like many others around the world, were built with two different types of propulsion: they could either use sails when the wind was good, or resort to the use of paddle wheels operated by marines on board using a treadmill. The fact that the Chinese even tried to fend off British marine forces during the Opium Wars with these vessels attests to the viability and utility of their design.

Trireme

As featured on the “Kings & Conquerors” mod for Rise of Nations!

Queen of the seas for centuries, the triremis (literally in Greek, “three-oar”) was the backbone of most Mediterranean navies prior to the rise of Alexander the Great, and consisted of a warship propelled by three banks of oars, hence its name. The triremis is often heavily associated with the Athenian Greeks, who established a fleet of such warships for the Athenian republic, allowing Athens to embark on a journey towards commercial domination and glory.

Austin-Putilovets armoured car

Austin-Putilovets armoured car

As featured on the “Age of Darkness” mod for Rise of Nations!

British-designed, and jointly manufactured with the Russian Empire during the First World War, the Austin armoured car was one of the many British-produced attack vehicles meant to be used for recon and skirmish tasks, but didn’t achieve as great a reputation as the Rolls-Royce M1914 due to it being substantially slower and harder to handle. Nevertheless, it was judged to meet requirements and was produced in Russia as the Austin-Putilovets, where it was used by both sides in the Russian Civil War.

Mediterranean Galleass

Mediterranean Galleass

As seen in the mod  “Rise of Kings: Chronicles” for Rise of Nations!

A hybrid of a fully-rigged ship and a galley, the galleass is an attempt to combining the movement and construction speed and cost of a galley with the line of sight, firepower, range, armour and rate of fire of a carrack, by having side guns as opposed to bow-mounted guns. Although slow and unwieldly thanks to its size, it did not stop other nations such as Spain, England and even the Ottomans from adopting galleasses in their fleets (in Turkey, a galleass was known as a mavna): the early Tudor navy had around a dozen galleasses which were meant to complement the great ships or carracks of the fleet. Eventually, the Galleass lost its oars and adopted a more extensive sailplan, evolving into the galleon and the frigate, the latter owing its name to the “fregata” or pocket galleass, a smaller version of the Galleass that attempted to reconcile the dilemma between having large hulls (Galleasses) and mobility (smaller galleys) in the Mediterranean.

British-designed, and jointly manufactured in France by an Anglo-American consortium during the closing years of the First World War, the Mk VIII “Liberty” was a state-of-the-art (for its time) heavy tank, meant like many others to function as an anti-entrenchment unit, allowing for the projection of heavier firepower and to provide support to infantry to which it was normally attached to.

Trooper with Sword

Trooper with Sword

As featured on the “Age of Darkness” mod for Rise of Nations!

Nothing can be more gentlemanly and more elegant than anything else in warfare than the trooper mounted upon his horse, for man has known the ways of the horse far longer than the destructive ways of the tank or aeroplane. Armed with his trusty steed and a blue steel sabre, the cavalryman awaits, biding his time, until the moment has come to draw up a line, charge and leap out of the mundane moments of waking life – and into the pages of fable and history.

The models below are based off a design and equipment set which was very common to American forces as well as most Western colonial powers at the close of the 19th century. Feel free to download them and use them in your projects as you wish.
