Stealth Sea Fighter Under Development

High speed attack craft like The Ghost could pose a real threat to larger ships in littoral waters.
A US company has built a high-speed stealth "attack helicopter on the water" that could revolutionise navies and the shipping industry.
The ship, called The Ghost, can glide on water using a layer of gas that is generated around its submerged areas at high speeds - a technology called "supercavitation", designer Juliet Marine Systems said.

The Ghost can reach speeds of up to 97km/h, would be undetectable by radar and could be used by the US Navy to carry torpedoes, the company said.
