English term or phrase: cobra-sized
Hello everyone!

I need help with this phrase. If possible, please provide a reference. I've search on Google, acronym dictionaries, marine glossaries, but didn't find an explanation for this term.

It's a questionnaire for port employees. The relevant question is: Are CoBRA-sized vessels inspected in compliance with the Guidelines for small ships and barges?

TIA!

del tamaño de los Cobra
Explanation:
Sucede que carne de coco es "coPra", de modo que lo único que se me ocurrió es buscar bajo las págs. de "COBRA Vessels", y hay varias referencias. Te paso una de ellas:

Reference: cobra-sized ships

Reference information:
Cobra-sized ships, small to medium general purpose vessels. These would have interstellar range, but limited range.
They would be similar to fast missile/torpedo boats or corvettes in current naval terms. Suggest different mixes of armament/speed/protection according to whether they are aggressive or defensive role. They would have good
agility/manouverability compared with larger ships, reasonably able to keep in touch with fighters. These will be the smallest class of self-supporting
ships if playing in an individual role.

Note to reference poster
Asker: Hi Smartranslators! I've found the same information in Google, but it's from a site related to games (http://alive.atari.org/alive9/solos.php). I'm not sure whether it's a general definition or it just applies to a game. I understand you just post it as a reference, but do you know its applicability? Any clues are welcomed! Thank you!
