* ''[[Videogame/MechWarrior MechWarrior Living Legends]]'''s aerospace fighters work just as fine in water as it does in the air and space. The latter is explained by it being a fusion-rocket powered SpacePlane, the [[GoodBadBugs latter not so much]].

* All capital ships (and the carrier-class non-capital ships) are capable of constructing their own fighter escorts in ''SinsOfASolarEmpire''. This is subverted (or averted?) for the Advent faction, as their fighters are merely psionic constructs.

Added DiffLines:

** In StarTrekOnline, the Federation is the only faction with a dedicated science ship class at every level (Klingons have ships that can be variably modified to fit such a role and the Romulans can use their allied faction science ships until proper level).
** Some fans speculate that the Federation's dedication to making these ships defensive science ships rather than offensive war ships is why they make great warships. A science ship would be over sensored and calibrated to find any odd particle at trace levels at range. A federation vessel might not be a great war ship, but considering that the two biggest enemies both rely on cloak technology which require very precise conditions to remain hidden, a single small flaw could easily be picked up by a Starfleet Vessel... and ships under cloak cannot run shields without decloaking. The first ship to really give the Federation's Galaxy class trouble were the Dominion Attack Ships, which were dedicated war ships that didn't bother with cloaking.

* In ''ChromeHounds'', there's the Tarakian Unidentified Weapon, "M-99 Super Patriot". It is literally a Modern-day Supertanker (you know, the giant, 5 mile long ocean going ship), loaded down with [[{{BFG}} giant (triple barreled) cannons]], [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers]], and [[GunsAkimbo lots]] [[MoreDakka and lots]] [[GatlingGood of gatling guns]]. It also is a mobile HQ for enemy forces- and launches a bottomless supply of enemy [[GoddamnBats ACVs]].

* ''ChromeHounds''. Yes, the titular [[AMechByAnyOtherName Hounds]] are supposedly HumongousMecha, they're more like ''tanks''. And by that I mean, a hound is probably a wall of Artillery cannons, Battleship guns, hulking armor, [[MoreDakka machine guns that turn M1-Abrams into swiss cheese]], on anything from humanoid bipeds to tanks. ([[RealRobot Oh, and tanks/wheels tend to be a bit faster.]]) and the cockpits range from bridges of ships to jet-fighter cockpits.

* DaleBrown's EB-52 Megafortress and other machines that fall into the CoolPlane category are essentially mash-ups of heavy bombers and fighters. Since in real-life the most difficult changes would involve changing some programming lines in a radar's software and adapting the bomb bay to carry an ''[[MacrossMissileMassacre obscene]]'' [[MacrossMissileMassacre amount air-to-air missiles]], this concept [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B-1_Lancer#B-1R just might]] become TruthInTelevision as well.

* The "Delta Flyer" from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', in similar fashion to the above mentioned "Puddle Jumpers", was modified in Season 5 Episode 9 "Thirty Days" to operate underwater. Making it a combination spacecraft/submersible. As with all shuttles in the Star Trek universe, it had atmospheric capability and space for multiple crew members, in effect making it a combination spacecraft/submersible/fighter/transport.
* The "[=SkyDiver=]" from ''{{UFO}}'' was a submarine whose entire front end was a JATO-boosted rocket plane called Sky One. At need, the [=SkyDiver=] would flood its rear ballast tanks until its bow pointed upward, and Sky One would launch...from ''under water''.

** In the ''Cataclysm'' expansion, it's possible to add "battleship" to the number of roles it fills. While still fairly vulnerable, it was much more capable of fending off fighters and small capital ships on its own. With a particular upgrade, they could even wipe out enemy fleets.
