Better check your equipment. How do you get radar contact with a ghostly apparition?

I've patrolled the Luzon area many times starting in Dec.'41, but still haven't seen it. Lookouts are under orders to keep their eyes peeled for it, and my RADAR is on. Isn't there a special 'prize' or sig allowed to those who provide proof of their sighting?

I haven't seen the Flying Dutchman, but I did locate a 'Devils Triangle' near the Molucca Sea. Position: 126 30'E, 2 30'S Entry into this area causes instant CTD. Cause unknown at this time.

Yep, I saw this ghost ship last night.
I remember I sunk 2 enemy shipping groups (15 + ships? refit in between.) before I saw this thing.

Gunner won't open fire on it, so I did it myself. After I hit it couple of times and + 1 torpedo hit, it stopped and nothing will hit it ever again. I even drove my sub right through it.

The name of the ship is - "What is it". I guess it's a joke from the developers.

I was North of Luzon when I had a radar contact that was moving at very high speed. When I click on the contact on the radar the title said "What is this". I tried to catch it at flank but I never could. All I saw on the bridge was a blue-gray fog. That was the closest I've gotten and it was only the once.

What is funny, the first time I encountered it I heard it on the sonar. I did not know Capt Kid had two diesels on his tall ship. Anyway, the crew stopped sniffing the fuel and we never saw the ship again.

It has a renown value of 1200 points if you sink it, and a place in ledgened if you succeed!

Default Cool!

I'm glad the developers have a sense of humour. Anybody know where you have the highest probability of seeing it?
