Carracks had a high rounded stern with high “castles” in the bow and stern with a low waist of open decking in the middle. The caravel sailed better than the carrack (which by comparison was slow and ponderous, and handled poorly); it rolled less and, with better lines and consequently less drag, was faster. Caravels deal damage in a straight line with every hit, allowing them to injure and even kill clusters of units on the shoreline, or sink masses of enemy ships in naval combat. These ships were called caravela or nau in Portuguese and Genoese, carabela or nao in … They will generally lose to War Galleys in one-on-one combat, and an Elite Caravel will be defeated by a Galleon, but a large fleet of them will defeat an armada of those counterparts due to the nature of their projectiles.
