It's got whiskers. Is that so it can work out if it can fit through a gap like on a cat?

That's silly. Why not abbreviate it to FC, and Battleship to BS? Oh, wait...

All right, but I am still not convinced they are all pure abbreviations. CA, SS, AV, AO?

Whiskey carriers? Sounds like our kind of ship!
