Top definition

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.

Get a Corvette mug for your cousin Abdul.
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.

'Vette Owner : tell me about it
