The difference is subtle. The "spikes" on the far side are outlined in the top image, but are not in the bottom :)

Yes i agree. The spikes needs to be more clearer to be perfect :P

Should this need gunpowder because it used cannons? Or will that make this unit too expensive?

how abou this : we make the turn cost 6(or maybe 5 ) and let it require gunppwder tech and also make it buildable only in castles Near water? Sounds fair enough??

Gunpowder: It depends if we treat it like the cannon and cannon tower, or the ashigarus.
Image: okay, I will try to work on it some. :)

Yes. Then used cannon at range and would ram into other ships when they were closer

Right now he is not so balanced, I don't think. So I will change it a bit and maybe try to sharpen the image again.

Wow I just saw this on the History Channel used by the Chinese could even lay down smoke screen for deception out of the dragon head then come out ramming had the option to shoot cannon or fire from dragon mouth had 10 cannon on each side but they only shot bolts( large arrows) at such a high velocity would shatter hulls and rigging I believe stats need to be higher )
