CBPUSAL Function Designation Streamlining Spectrum[edit]

The Imperial Ship Builders Association (ISBA) qualifies modern naval hulls across this spectrum:

  1. C. Cluster. An accumulation of compartments.
  2. B. Braced Cluster. Structured for higher acceleration.
  3. P. Planetoid. A hollowed nickel-iron asteroid.
  4. U. Unstreamlined. Protrusions increase drag.
  5. S. Streamlined. Cowlings and fairings decrease drag.
  6. A. Airframe. Winged for performance in atmosphere.
  7. L. Lifting Body. Radically streamlined lifting-surfaces.
