dang it, I really want to not like Card because I don't care for his politics. But if I could divorce myself from L. Ron Hubbard's brilliant scheme, likely a story that was rejected by a publisher which Hubbard decided to take to the streets, but if I can do that I can make it though stuff by Card. I really enjoyed the whole Ender's Saga soooo, dang it!!

Have read the likes of Brainships (McCaffrey), Liveship Traders (Hobb), Dahak (Weber) etc.
How about the JOn and Lobo books by Mark L. van Name? This book collects the first two:

Lobo is described as "An AI-enhanced Predator-Class Assault Vehicle, a mobile fortress equipped for any environment from the seabed to interstellar space."
