No, this isn't a vehicle from Call of Duty, but a real water vessel that actually exists. GHOST is basically a super-cavitating stealth ship by Juliet Marine Systems that can achieve 900-times less hull friction than a conventional watercraft. It was developed to provide superior protection for US service personnel. The watercraft is virtually invisible to sonar and radar detection through its aluminum and stainless steel construction, making it non-magnetic, its hull angles bare a resemblance those of the F-117 Nighthawk.
