Defensive Flotillas (Spanish)
Originally published to Miniature Trading on June 9th, 2017
Don’t think I’ve seen this exact fleet yet. Two of Spain’s best gold runners with their powerful flotillas hooked up to defend them.
The Morning Star will only shoot if necessary and Zuan is not a large expense. The Monarca could use the other Freda if you wanted. I put the Diablo with the Monarca because she needs more defense and the Diablo’s guns are better than Armada’s. (plus the card/set colors match up better heh, with red of CC and RotF)
You could easily take out Zuan for El Raton, a ship that could even tow one of the defensive flotillas in a pinch.
A basic fleet, but one that shows how good flotillas can be, not just for gunships. Not terribly fast, but decently well-armed overall.

I have never used flotillas, even though I have a few. When they are in tow, the ship that is towing is still reduced to S for her movement correct?
I’m going to have to try them out next game.
@El Tiburón: No, you can find the keyword in the Master Keyword List.
Flotillas are somehow still underrated even after my praise of them. Incredible firepower boost for the cost.
Haha thanks for going easy on me, I should have known that and should have looked there. A rookie mistake on my part.
Cool, so I really am going to give it a whirl. Much appreciated!
@El Tiburón: Indeed, I highly recommend trying out flotillas! They’re versatile in that they can assist fast gold runners for defense or dramatically increase the overall firepower of a towing gunship.
