The Battle Franky is a line of special battleships built by Cutty Flam (now known as Franky), respectively named "Battle Franky" with a call number from one through thirty five. While no bigger than lifeboats, each one is heavily armed with cannons and other weaponry. Some of the ships even have armor, turrets, and various mechanical devices. This makes these small crafts as dangerous as an actual battleship.
Franky originally built the craft to hunt Sea Kings. After several failed attempts, he succeeded in defeating one with BF 35. However, shortly after Spandam and the CP5 stole the fleet and used her to destroy the Judiciary ship, framing Tom, Iceburg, and Franky of the crime, and in the process destroying the majority of the ships.
There were five ships attacking the judiciary ship, but Tom, Iceburg and Franky were only three people. However, they were shown to be the sole perpetrators.
Notable Battle FrankiesEdit
After being hit by the Sea Train Puffing Tom, Franky's body suffered severe damage. When he drifted to an abandoned ship, he used the scrap metal to rebuild himself into a cyborg with a different body structure and added weapons, and labeling himself as "BF 36", even though he is not a battleship.

After the two year separation, each of Franky's massive shoulders has now a large stripe labelled "BF-37", meaning that he has upgraded greatly and is now Battle Franky 37, despite not being a battleship. He has nicknamed this new body "Armored Me" and upgraded himself using Vegapunk's technology.

Franky completed Vegapunk's former dream by using Wapometal, a shape memory alloy, creating a giant robot named "Iron Pirate Franky Shogun". It is made by "docking" the Black Rhino FR-U IV and the Brachio Tank V. It has "BF" written where its left breast would be, and "38" written on its collar.
