Captain Jones tells Lieutenant Dale that the other two ships in his squadron are privateers, and so are not required to obey his orders. His squadron actually consisted of the Bonnehomme Richard and three other vessels, not two. The Alliance under Captain Landais was a Continental frigate and as such was actually directly subject to Jones' orders; however, Captain Landais felt he should be in command of the squadron, and regularly ignored Jones' orders. The other two ships (not mentioned in the movie) were the frigate-armed merchant ship Pallas and the Vengeance a small brigantine (which took no part in the battle). These two ships were privateers, although both did a generally tolerable job of supporting Jones throughout the cruise. See more
