Noun.

1. A fast warship that is usually smaller than a frigate but larger than patrol craft. These ships are generally well-armed and in use mostly by smaller navies that do not need or cannot afford larger warships. Corvettes generally carry enough firepower to sink ships many times its size, and can thus provide navies with a symetrical response to a threat for asymetrical cost. They do not have the endurance of larger ships and are therefore not suited for long-term operations (with the possible exception of Israeli corvettes, which, due to their prohibition from the Suez Canal, must travel all the way around Africa to reach their operating areas in the Red Sea).

NATO standard designations are: FS (corvette), and FSG (guided misslie corvette).

1. Corvettes are the largest ships in most Middle Eastern navies, including Israel, Iran and Oman.

An American made car, produced by Chevrolet. Characterized by its sharklike styling and, in modern guise, rear-wheel drive layout powered by GM's small block. Competent in handling/cornering, braking, acceleration. In Z06 guise, this vehicle can hang with even the best through the turns with outstanding braking and producing over 1.0G of lateral acceleration.
'Vette owner: That's really too bad that the kid thought my car couldn't corner as well as his Nissan Skyline R-34.

Traffic Cop: Yeah, I know. Nissan hasn't really had any success running the R390 in any competition, yet Chevrolet has been dominating with its C5-R. Oh well, let's go unwrap his poor toy from around that lightpost ... *sigh* ... these kids really should stick to front-wheel drive cars.

A car General Motors quit making in 1967.

The current overly plastic turd marketed by GM as a Z06 Corvette can go over 190 mph. This is the main argument when owners and prospective owners bash other all other cars. Never mind the US speed limit is 70mph and these losers would crap on themselves at over 120. Their cars are driven no faster than a POS Chevy Malibu.

The best thing about not owning a Corvette is that they are a bigger cop magnet than an INDY car. Reason being they are not likely to pull over a Porsche 911 or Ferrari cause they don't know what the hell it is, although some cops mistake Ferrari for corvette cause it has round tail lights and must be a Curvette, Duh! So basically you have a car that a Jealous, idiot cop knows and can brag to his buddies, "I wrote a black covette for 59 in a 45. Really he was on doing 35." This is the main reason Corvettes and Vipers are seen in parade mode, 15 mph under the speed limit.

Corvette was a great car till the bean counters fired the styling department and started using cheaper materials.
