DIA-assigned reporting name, no known Chinese name
Cap device worn by captains of the Ghost Fleet
The "Ghost Fleet" (name given by the DIA, no official name is known) was a top secret Chinese naval unit, consisting of next-generation stealth Yangtze-class submarines developed in secret at Shaanxi. It allowed China to retain second strike capability, even in the face of overwhelming defeat.
Ghost Fleet is mentioned in Fallout 4.

"Could you repeat for the general what you just told me?"
> Posit. Chinese stealth technology far outstrips our own capabilities. Posit. The Chinese intelligence apparatus is sufficient to conceal large scale research operations from American operatives. Conclusion. The Chinese have a 91% chance of having conducted large scale experimentation with Stealth Tech.
"Large scale? What do you mean? What are their capabilities?"
> American projects involving this technology (refer to "Stealth Boy") have merely reverse engineered captured Hei Gui suits. The underlying science of this technology is unknown. So the theoretical limits are also unknown. However the so-called "Ghost Fleet" that station A-31 and B-19 reported in November may indicate that testing has already commenced with submersible vessels.
"Dear God. You think they have stealth subs?"
> A second order approximation is inconclusive. Explanation. The logic chain of these assumptions have too much variability. Further data is required.
"So you can't even give me a guess?"
> Machine/human interface aborted.
"Sorry, sir. We're working on some of her glitches. P.A.M... well, she gets real stubborn when she's doing too much guesswork."
"Stubborn? She's a machine."
"Sir. With each new version, well, she's getting quirky."
"There's no way I'm taking this stealth sub nonsense to the Joint Chiefs unless I have proof. It's goddamned ludicrous to think the Chinese have been working on something this big and we've heard nothing."
> Virtually no actionable intelligence has come out of the Shaanxi Province for 3.1 years. However, the province reports a spike in the imports of complex polymers and other key synthetic compounds. The quantity in question is consistent with stealth technology research on the macro scale.
"Until you can give me something concrete, I don't want to hear another goddamned word about this."
