I’m actually just assuming/guessing that this ship is a cruiser.  The title of the clip was “battleship1″ but it’s clearly not a battleship.  I run into this problem with clip art filenames from time to time.  That one for “Walrus,” for example, is clearly a walrus.  But the name of the file was “Sea Lion.”  Obviously it’s not something that affects the strip, but sometimes when I have an idea for a strip and I go looking for a clip to support it, it makes the search more of a problem.

Anyway, I’m calling this “Navy Cruiser” because it looks like the Aegis missile cruisers I saw on the news during the first Gulf War.  I could probably consult Jane’s defense, but then I wouldn’t have a commentary.
