The French Navy
The French Fleet in Black Seas
French ships were usually very streamlined. They can, therefore, take the Streamlined upgrade for a discounted cost. Some ships were also much sturdier than their counterparts, so any French ship can take the Sturdy upgrade, though this option can prove costly.
The French also tended to attempt to disable enemy ships rather than sink them. They are especially adept at aiming high. French ships do not suffer as harsh a penalty when aiming high and do not suffer any penalty at all when using Chain Shot.
