Name This Mystery Ship XXIX: Yes, Really.

While I'm working on the Ben-To! writeup, here's a little brainteaser for ya.  Heh.  I got no hints for ya...

There ya go.  Yep, I'm a bastitch... granted. 

CXT, FDM, y'know the rules: you don't get to play for a while.  Everybody else, have at it.  Remember, no imagesearch... you're a poopiehead if you use an image searching app or anything like that.

UPDATE: Okay, CTX, FDM... you're let off the leash.

1 Is that USS Canopus?

2 It isn't, but I completely understand the logic behind the guess.

3 USS New Orleans?

4 Also an appropriate guess.  Also not the USS New Orleans.

5 Looks like it should be named HMS Dunsinane. Or maybe USS Druid Hills.

Ent Cruise Lines. The slowest way to travel!

6 The Knights who say "Ni!" apparently survived into the 20th century, and have extracted quite a toll in shrubbery over the centuries....

7 I guess they didn't disguise Canopus with greenery. They disguised it with smudge pots and the like.

8 They also disguised it with sinking.

Sort of.

I would guess the pic above is some kind of light cruiser used for coastal defense, and that's as far as I can go.

Not very far, I know.

9 HNLMS Abraham Crijnssen.  In the early months of the Pacific war, she escaped from Soerabaja to Australia by posing as the above pictured island and moving only at night.

10 HRMS Abraham Crijnssen; in the Dutch East Indies, 1942.  Last ship to escape the Japanese from Java.
