What Warship Are You?


You May Get

YOU ARE... probably not a ship.

Sorry if that’s not the result you were hoping for. It’s possible to lead a full and healthy life without being a warship, you know. Sure, you’ll never feel the thrum of an honest-to-betsy nuclear reactor inside of you. You’ll never let slip two dozen anti-missile missiles, spending millions of dollars in a heartbeat-long burst of smoke and electricity. But maybe that’s OK. Maybe you can be a shop assistant or something.(If I were you, though, I’d take this test again.)  

YOU ARE... a Russian Akula class submarine.

Your friends tell you you’re deep, sinister, difficult to fathom and absolutely deadly when crossed. They also worry about the enormous amount of radioactive material you carry with you, whether contained within the atomic warheads you secret about your person, or as fuel for the nuclear reactor that burns within your belly. You probably don’t socialise too much, comfortable as you are to sit, all alone, five hundred meters below the surface, often for months at a time. That’s just fine by you, though. You get a lot of thinking done. Much of it about which city you’re going to level next.

YOU ARE... a US Nimitz class aircraft carrier.

The world's largest warship and rare indeed, as you’re one of just ten. Yours is a mixed bag, as you’re too big to fit in most nightclubs and clothes shopping is probably a nightmare, but you can go for twenty years without refuelling, often at over thirty knots, and can effortlessly carry over a hundred aircraft if necessary. You shouldn’t feel bad for weighing in at over 100,000 long tons, as big is beautiful and all that space means you have plenty of room for a cinema, hairdresser and post office and library. Your friends think of you as a floating town, but not a town they want to make angry...

YOU ARE... a Finnish Hamina class missile boat.

You’re sleek, stylish and more than a little sneaky. Boasting the latest in surveillance technology, you can shoot planes out of the sky from 100 kilometers away, use your snazzy water jet propulsion to scoot around in shallow waters and even disappear from radar, thanks to your stealth design. Unfortunately, this means people tend to overlook you, but you’re fine with this, considering your small heat and radar signatures an asset. Unlike bigger, bulkier vessels, it takes just 26 Finnish sailors to keep you running. What’s that like, having all that crew scurrying around inside you? Is it distracting? Itchy? Of course, being a Hamina class, we’re sure you’re discreet with your answers.
