Corback kyu

In Mouretsu Pirates, there's a strange word or something I can't figure out. When they're talking about the Corback class destroyers, they often refer to corubako kyu.

What's that kyu? I can't find anything in the dictionary that makes sense, no matter how I try to spell it. (kyuu kiu kiyu etc.)

1 It's  コルバック級, actually.

They've even got their own wik page, though it's kind of lacking in interesting info.

2 OK, so 級 translates as "class" and they're saying "Corback-class warships". That makes sense.

3 On a slightly-related note, I see that we can now pre-order Bodacious Space Pirates in the US.  I just placed mine.
