But how many modern ships are lost at sea?
Yes I know about rogue waves. I was in the U.S. navy after all. But how many modern cruisers and aircraft carriers have been lost to them? None that I know of. There was a destroyer that was very badly damaged in a storm during ww2. They even made a movie about it. But the destroyer was not lost.
I'm afraid I don't know the statistics of frigates and galleons though.
You could add in a random event to lose caravels. But random events seem absent in this game. I would have liked to have seen volcanos, earthquakes, and hurricanes.
But nevertheless, here's some interesting reading for all of ya.
