Do Ottoman Frigates(5-6 rates) get a +2 bonus in battle sail?

+1 for Coppered hulls
+1 for small ship speed bonus.

thanks

Turkish Movement Bonus
Due to their coppered hulls, Turkish ships automatically gain an optional +1 movement point bonus as long as they start a turn with at least one movement point. Ships at Full Sail may add up to +2 points. The Turkish player must declare if a ship is using this bonus at the start of its move.


so I believe the Turk move bonus is in addition to other move bonuses.

A Turk frigate reaching at Full Sail would get
8MP +1 Small Ship +2 Turk = 11MP

At Battle Sail
+1 Small Ship
+1 Turk

Just read an interesting scholarly article:

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/307653355_Ottoman_S...'s_Turkish_Wars_1768-1792

Notes that Turks did NOT have Copper bottoms till 1793. However, the article states that Turk ships were more lightly built with fewer guns; i.e. they were faster.

Fascinating.
