Snekkja Longship - Mercenary Nordic Light Marauders

These small, swift vessels are the ideal tool for raiding.

Fighting effectively at sea takes skill, courage, and sea-legs in abundance.

Snekkja are thought to be the smallest of all the Viking warships, carrying a relatively small crew of 41 men. The design of these ships varied slightly depending on the location of its construction; for example, the Norwegian design was better suited to Atlantic weather conditions and deep fjords, meaning it had more draft than its Danish counterparts, designed for shallow coastal waters and beaches. These lighter ships, so light that it is thought they could be carried short distances over-land between waterways, were the most common design of longship, often appearing in the Viking histories. It was reported that the great King Cnut even used 1200 of them to assert his claim over Norway in AD1028.

(Mercenary Nordic Light Marauders)
Naval warfare in the ancient world was just another way for infantry to fight one another. The earliest documented naval battles are those of ancient China, 'grapple and hook' battles where boarding operations and close-quarters combat decided the victor. During the Second Punic War, Rome famously broke Carthage's mastery of the waves by creating the 'corvus' - a bridge that allowed its soldiers to board and fight. The distinction, then, in antiquity, between fighting on land and at sea was small, yet chiefly a matter of 'sea legs' - maintaining balance whilst toppling your opponent.
