Just encountered one of these in the Caribbean, fired over 1000 20mm rounds at it and 5 shots of the 105 deck gun, all went straight through it and had no effect http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Ouch! That must have been a decent prize ? I wonder if it was a "ghost ship" ?

Well certainly impervious to bullets like the "Flying Dutchman" I think you may be referring to http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Anyone know if they included one in SH3

The Flying Dutchman is only in GWX. But there was a bug in SH3 that made just about any ship a ghost ship, that's what I was referring to.

The K-Ship has a limited 'kill' zone.
If you aimed at the big gas bag?
You wasted a lot of ammo for nothing.
They were self sealing to an extent in real life.
Contained no explosive gases.
And an impact round would pass through without exploding.

You incountered no ghost ship.
You just did not hit the ENGINES!!!

The only Ghost Ship in GWX is the USS Cyclops.
Somewhere around Bermuda I'm told.
Or is that a folks tail?
LOL

1. Anyone ever shot one down? I have found every aircraft apart from the Swordfish hard to bring down with just 20mm

2. Anyone got screenies of this USS Cyclops?

Jimbuna took great pleasure shooting down
the K-ships in testing.
Even posted a vid of it at SS.
LOL

Here's a link to the Pre-GWX Cyclops.
