Shipwright-Buddy.pngShipwright says... The Chimera's dual forward facing medium mortars give it an advantage over other mortar ships.

The Chimera is a surprisingly fast, maneuverable ship for its size and bulk packing powerful front-facing mortar power. While lacking in broadside power and lacking any stern guns, the Chimera's extremely high hull strength allows it to take plenty of punishment and its high turn speed lets it catch enemies by surprise. As the Shipwright suggests, the Chimera is best used in a support role, using its mortars to distract and pound enemy ships from beyond their range. Its above average speed can be used to escape the broadside of other large, heavy ships, and its health and maneuverability allow it to deal with smaller, faster ships which may try to bow or sternlock it.
