Mystery Ship XXVII

I dunno, we'll see about this one.  Name this Mystery Ship!

It may be really easy, it may be confusing!  As always, FDM and CTX are in the Masters category, so they can't play yet... but everybody else, take your best shot!  Remember, imagesearch is an abomination unto the eyes of men and ducks.

2 I think that's the Solomons. (I cheated.)

5 AKA USS Robin.

6  Well, the fact that the White Ensign is actually visible in the photo is a bit of a giveaway, when combined with the other details.

7 CXT, you've got sharp eyes.  I was working with a MUCH larger version of the pic, and I never noticed.

And as a general FYI, Steven's USS Robin would have worked as an answer, too.

8 At least on the screens available to me, the flag blends into the clouds perfectly. Now that cxt mentions it, I can see a resemblance, but even so it looks like a windsock or antenna.

9 On the large pic I've got over here, it's pretty obviously the White Ensign... but you have to actually NOTICE it, and it's hard to do that against the background.

The cross on the White Ensign is what gave it away.  The dark shape in the corner, combined with the cross, being flown from a warship, really narrowed everything down.

11 I have an 8-bit ADC in this laptop's panel, so it all merges in. In theory TrueColor visual is also 8-bit and it should be enough, but in practice, well, not so much. Also, sometimes I can see a whole lot of grays by looking at the image at odd angles, like opening laptop almost flat. I just forgot about doing that trick here.
