Hello all.

Amidst the storm of problems that we are currently in, I was in the mood for some humor, and I had a bit of a thought about silly ship nicknames. I know we already have some, such as Derpitz for Tirpitz, and Des Memes for Des Moines, but what about others?

Here are some I have come up with so far. DISCLAIMER: SOME OF THESE NICKNAMES HAVE BEEN USED BEFORE. FOR ANY NICKNAMES THAT HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY CREATED, CREDIT GOES TO THE PERSON WHO COINED IT. ADDITIONALLY, THIS IS A HUMOR ARTICLE. NONE OF THE NAMES OR WORDING HERE IS / ARE INTENDED TO POLITICIZE, ATTACK, OR HARM ANYONE OR ANYTHING.

 

( IV ) Clemson - Clubson ( This one might be familiar, or has been used before, so thanks to whoever coined this )

( VI ) Bayern - Gold Bar in a Sock ( Credit goes to, er, someone. But whoever said this, thanks )

( V ) October Revolution - Trotsky's Hammer

( II ) V-25 - 25 Reasons to Club

( II ) Umikaze - Unickaze ( play on Unicum and Umikaze, for how overpowered that ship is at Tier II )

( VII ) Sinop - SinOP

( VII ) Duke of York - Duke of Puke ( I hate this ship. Also, this might have been there before. If anyone coined this, I give them thanks )

( VII ) Yuudachi - Poi-boat ( Thanks, Kancolle fans )

( VIII ) Akizuki - Ducky ( Thanks, @LittleWhiteMouse, or whoever coined this )

( VIII ) Lenin - Lenin's Hammer

( VIII ) Alabama ST - Lewdbote ( Thanks again, Mouse )

( VIII ) Asashio - Battleship Bomber

( VIII ) AL Littorio - Copy Pasta 

( IX ) Friesland - Lertbote ( Thanks again, Mouse )

( IX ) Musashi - Moshi Moshi ( credit goes to Flambass, or... someone )

( IX ) Ostergotland - Oyster Boat 

( IX ) Georgia - American Gneis on 'roids

( X ) Manfred von Richtofen - The Dread Baron 

( X ) Kitakami - Pink-bote 

( X ) Harugumo - Omega Ducky

( X ) Stalingrad - Stalin's Hammer

( X ) Kremlin - Stalin's Bazooka 

( X ) Colbert - French A-10

So, what other silly nicknames can you forumers come up with?

Kamikaze/R/Fujin (lesser degree Minekaze - as those 3 are a slightly improved version historically or vice versa) - The Clones

Arkansas Beta - Beta Max (Her number of guns AND having access to 6 slots)

Iwaki Alpha - Waka Waka, Smokey, The Non-DD DD. Those 3 (having to also be familiar with The Muppets and how Waka Waka ties to Jokes) while now somewhat dated came about because it was the test ship for Cruisers with smoke consumable. Though the last name still holds up some as it's gameplay is more DD like than cruiser. 

Tirpitz - The Terminator (pre-IFHE). The first German BB in game, and the first BB with torpedoes that caught many players off guard when it was first in testing (so glad I got to ST that ship). Before 152 mm cruisers could ignore armour with their IFHE rounds the thing was insanely lethal as it could close on BB's, keep up with cruisers, and in short enough ranges secondary's ate up DD's. And those torpedos, if the tubes weren't knocked out, just made it incredibly deadly. Surpassed only by the proper BB line added after it - given that Bis had Hydro and longer range secondary guns, that allowed far more reliable damage then Tirpitz because by it's introduction players spammed HE at the TT's to knock them out, which wasn't too hard. 

Des Moines -Des Memes - not sure how this one was passed over. Especially when it was only USN  and IJN - 203 mm guns with like 5 second reload, decent armour, etc - it was basically a case study of why IFHE was a bad idea in the first place because it basically did the same thing without it. 

I take no credit, as one of the old guard from the Alpha days - I can't remember who came up with these or any other ones I may remember later.

Some of the older ones:

Minotaur: Memeotaur (when using Radar instead of Smoke).

Tashkent: Trashkent  (back when the ship was tier VIII and pretty bad).

Tirpitz: Derpitz (due to the large number of players that bought her when she was released, she assumed Lowe levels of infamy)

Moskva: Battleship Moskva (before VMF BB line hit due to the ship's unparalleled tankiness and HP compared to the other cruisers), Comrade Moskva.

Tachibana: Tachibanana, Touchy Banana

Chapayev: Chappy

Furutaka: Furrytaco

Am sure others will be able to remember more.

Duke of York - Duke of Puke

Also called the Duke of Yuck.

@mofton has a bunch of very interesting nicknames for ships in his signature line, and I hope he replies to this so we can see them all.

Depending on the skill of the players, the Asashio can be named as Ashito. Same goes for that Japanaese DD MustSucky.

Smolensk: either Smokelesk or Smolboi

Tirpitz was named Torpitz for a while.

Don't forget the Two Hotelships: Yamato and Musashi

I will have to get back with you. I have a list, but it's at home. You might say if you don't fall down laughing, it's because you don't have a soul when you read it.

I recently heard the meme-otaur called the Manotaur.

Alexander Nevsky = Big-ensk, because Smolensk = Small-ensk.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Pepsi-cola yet.

Siliwangi... Oh, wait.
