One of the most notable features of the Joyeuse Navy is the small number of different classes of vessels. Far from being a disadvantage this does in fact provide quite a significant benefit in that it eases maintenance problems, resulting in a much quicker turn around time than most of the other fleets in the Islands.
Another quite striking fact is the almost total absence of armour from these vessels, although this is a French tradition dating back millennia, it's place in modern warfare must be questioned. The author is reminded of the almost total destruction of the French tanks at the Battle of Strasbourg in 1997, when confronted by the much heavier German armour. The occasional reference to the "Blownapart" class has been made, however, this is the best protected vessel in the fleet. This whole issue can only be settled in one way, but this author would much rather that it remained an academic debate. Joyeuse has also chosen to adopt an organisation based upon three fleets, with a fourth fleet acting as a reserve force which is reinforced with a number of additional cruiser squadrons.
