Name: El Hambre (Spain)
Card: FN #061 (Rare)
Guns : 4S
Hit %: 33 (S), 0 (L)
Ability: When this ship carries no cargo, she gets
+S to her base move.
"The Hunger," or perhaps "The Hungry One." What an
odd name for a ship!
But that's what her name means. Hungry for gold,
perhaps? That's all she's likely to be good for.
Her speed isn't quite as good as the past couple of
ships we've looked at, and her cargo and cannons
aren't any better. But her ability is one that can
be very useful for a gold ship. Basically, you head
out at triple-S speed and come home at double-S
speed. Not bad at all. One more point would buy you
La Rosario, with permanent S+S+S speed, but maybe
you don't own her.
Gold has always fascinated the Spanish, perhaps more
than any other faction. El Hambre is an inexpensive
but effective means of getting some.
