* From ''Manga/{{Zipang}}'' we have DDG-182 ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDG-182_Mirai Mirai]]'', a Japanese Self-Defense Force ''Yukinami''-class guided missile destroyer (which is a modified variant of America's ''Arleigh Burke'' destroyers) sent back to WorldWarTwo by an undetermined phenomenon. As an early 21st century warship in the mid 20th century battlefield, ''Mirai'' terrifies ''both'' the Imperial Japanese Navy and the United States Navy. In addition to that, ''Mirai'' also has a [[CoolPlane cool scout-recon aircraft]], the MVSA-32J Umidori.

* A number of 21st-century ships in JohnBirmingham's ''AxisOfTime'' trilogy, especially since they're facing off against UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo-era technology. Most of those ships have on-board [=AIs=] capable of singlehandedly control the ship's defense systems (consisting of [[MoreDakka MetalStorm]] and [[FrickinLaserBeams laser pods]]). The key players are the USS ''Hillary Clinton'' (advanced supercarrier launching F-22 Raptors), the HMS ''Trident'' (triple-hulled stealth destroyer) that {{One Hit Kill}}s the ''Tirpitz'', and the HMAS ''Havoc'' (submarine responsible for sinking most of the Japanese fleet). Honorable mention goes to the JDS ''Siranui'' (stealth cruiser that ends up leading the US Pacific Fleet for a time) and the ''Dessaix'' (French stealth destroyer that ends up in the hands of the bad guys).

* Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''Darkness'' series takes place in a high fantasy retelling of WorldWarTwo. The pykrete aircraft carriers of Project Habakkuk make an appearance as giant magically-permanently-frozen icebergs, sporting plenty of kennel space for dragons (standing in for aircraft).

** In the interest of finding out whether Project Habakkuk of WorldWarTwo could have worked, Adam and Jamie built the ''Yesterday's News''--a motorboat made out of frozen newspapers (similar to the wood pulp and ice that Project Habakkuk's carriers would have used, but stronger). ''Yesterday's News'' was seaworthy for all of ten minutes before the hull started to thaw. Can you get much [[IncrediblyLamePun cooler]] than a frozen boat?

* ''TopGear'' has featured and/or built a few. The fancy high-grade speedboat used for the Riviera race would qualify, if it hadn't beaten the shit out of James May, and it hadn't had a carbon fibre toilet (and thus the nickname HMS Carbon Khazi).
