    Default Matchlock Navy Mod

    Why are the only matchlock naval units the Siege Tower Bune and the Matchlock Kobaya?
    A question that has never been answered.... til now... Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you....

    The Matchlock Navy

    Sails out to meet demands for Shogun 2 players wishing for a Matchlock-themed Naval Unit Pack!

    This pack contains the following units:

    Medium Matchlock Bune
    These ships are good all-rounders: dependable sailors, matchlock-armed marines, and strong enough to go into battle without sacrificing too much battle speed.
    Recruitable from any Lv3 Port once a Lv2 Powder Maker is built in the same province,
    and once Gunpowder Mastery is researched.
    Unit Cap Limit of 8.

    Heavy Matchlock Bune
    Heavy Bunes are the mainstay of a fleet, however these Heavy Bunes have been equipped with matchlocks instead of bows, making them more deadly.
    Recruitable from any Lv4 Port once a Lv3 Gunsmith is built in the same province,
    and once Naval Expertise is researched.
    Unit Cap Limit of 6.

    O Ataka Matchlock Bune
    These ships are one of the pinnacles of Sengoku naval technology. Few ships can go into combat against the O Ataka Matchlock Bune and claim victory.
    Recruitable from any Lv4 Port once a Lv3 Gunsmith is built in the same province,
    and once Mastery of the Waves is researched.
    Unit Cap Limit of 4.

    Important Notes
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    • Mori and Otomo versions of these ships exist, which have extra accuracy and melee strength, as well as an increased unit cap limit by 2.



    • The Otomo Matchlock Kobaya also contains 45 men instead of the regular 35, and their version of the other ships have 10 extra matchlock marines in exchange for having 10 less seamen.



    • Mori Matchlock Ships contain deadly buff to the melee stats of their crew, meaning that boarding them without weakening them first is practically a death sentence.



    • Do note, the units here will more than likely defeat their bow-equipped sister units in battle. Especially if they are Mori or Otomo versions.





    Here are some pics from the test battle. Tested in the Sea of Japan map, on medium difficulty.
