ins and outs

The RANGER was one of the typical American cutters built in the first half of the 1800s with mainly surveillance and coast guard functions. The main armament consisted of a large carronade placed in the center of the deck and rotating on a circular guide that allowed it to fire quickly, with a single weapon, from both sides of the hull. Note the particularly elegant line of the RANGER, underlined by the depth a stern of the chiglia line. No significant episodes of these types of cutters are known given the genericity of the tasks to which they were used.

The RANGER was one of the typical American cutters built in the first half of the 19th century and basically used for surveillance and castguard duties. It was armed with a large carronade installed in the centre of the deck that rotated on a circular guideway, permitting rapid fire from both sides of the hull with a single weapon. Note the particular elegant line of the RANGER, emphasised by the depth of the keel at the stern. Given the generic nature of the tasks it performed, no significant events are known in which this type of cutter was involved.

Cutter Americain de 1823
Le RANGER étant l'un des vaisseaux
américains typiques construits durant la
première moltié du dixneuvième siècle,
destiné principalement à la surveillance
et à la fonction de garde-côtes.
L'armement principal était constitué
d'une grosse caronade posée au centre
du pont et tournant sur une glissière
circulaire qui lui permettait de faire feu
rapidement, avec une seule arme, des
deux côtés de la coque. Soulignons la
ligne particulièrement élégante du RAN-
GER, soulignée par la profondeur de la
ligne de quille en poupe.
Vu l'amplitude des devoirs auxquels
çes navires étaient destinés, on ne
connait pas d'épisode significatif
concernant ce type de vaisseau.

Die RANGER gehört zu jenen
typischen amerikanischen Cuttern, wie
sie in der ersten Hälfte des
Jahrhunderts vorwiegend von der
Küstenwachen zur Kontrolle der
küstennahen Gewässer eingesetzt wurden.
Die wichtigste Bewehrung der
RANGER stellte eine imponierende
Karronade dar, welche in der
Decksmitte auf einer kreisförmigen
Basis drehbar angebracht war; so konnte
im Bedarfsfall mit einer einzigen
Feuerwaffe rasch nach allen Seiten des
Schiffsrumpfes hin gefeuert werden. Zu
beacthen ist die elegante Linienführung
des Rumpfes, die heckseitig durch die
tiefe Kiellinie unterstrichen wird. from
diese Cutter meistens für allgemeine
Aufgaben eingesetzt waren, sind keine
besonderen Episoden von der
RANGER überliefert.
