  1. Have you seen SCP-1174? Description: SCP-1174 is a localized phenomenon occurring within Lake Superior along the border between the United States and Canada, consisting of visual hallucinations of ships appearing during periods of inclement weather (designated SCP-1174-1) and an unknown number of anomalous human beings associated with ships sinking after encountering SCP-1174-1 (designated SCP-1174-2). Instances of SCP-1174-1 are capable of manifesting between October 1st and November 30th of each year. Most manifestations of SCP-1174-1 have occurred during "November witch" cyclone conditions producing rain or snow and wind in excess of 95 km/h; however, SCP-1174-1 can manifest at any time during the active season when cloud cover and high winds are present. Instances of SCP-1174-1 are capable of movement at rates commensurate to that of the ship it resembles and will appear and travel in no discernable heading along Lake Superior until such time as weather conditions improve, whereupon SCP-1174-1 will vanish. In no case has any instance of SCP-1174-1 appeared in or traveled to, any area less than approximately 5 km from the American or Canadian mainland. There are currently seven known instances of SCP-1174-1. Five of the seven have been conclusively identified as resembling vessels known to have sunk in Lake Superior during SCP-1174-1's active season; SCP-1174-1-1: A fully-rigged wooden warship of late 18th-century construction, approximately 45 meters in length, flying the naval ensign of the United Kingdom. Identity unknown. SCP-1174-1-2: A wooden schooner of mid 19th-century construction, approximately 60 meters in length. Identified as Lucerne, an ore carrier sunk in 1886. SCP-1174-1-3: A wooden steamship of late 19th-century construction, approximately 75 meters in length. Identified as Bannockburn, a freighter sunk in 1902. SCP-1174-1-4: A steel-hulled, steam-powered warship of early 20th-century construction, approximately 40 meters in length. Identified as Cerisoles, a French Navy minesweeper lost under unknown circumstances in 1918. SCP-1174-1-5: A steel-hulled steamship of early 20th-century construction, approximately 75 meters in length. Identity unknown. SCP-1174-1-6: A steel-hulled, oil-burning cargo ship of mid 20th-century construction, approximately 220 meters in length. Identified as Edmund Fitzgerald, a freighter sunk in 1975. SCP-1174-1-7: A steel-hulled, diesel-engine patrol boat of early 21st-century construction, approximately 27 meters in length. Identified as SCPS Irvine, a Foundation vessel sunk while investigating SCP-1174-1-6 in 2007. Testing has indicated that all instances of SCP-1174-1 are visual hallucinations and do not exist as corporeal entities. SCP-1174-1 vessels do not appear on radar or infrared imaging, and attempts to fire upon them have resulted in armament passing through the vessel without causing damage. Upon coming into visual range of any vessel traveling through Lake Superior, SCP-1174-1 will attempt to establish communication by means appropriate to the period and capabilities of the vessel appearing, including the use of flags, signal lights, Morse code, firing of flares, and radio. In all cases where contact is made, SCP-1174-1 will claim to be in immediate danger of sinking and will request that the vessel approach immediately to assist in evacuating its crew. In radio communication, the voice transmitted from SCP-1174-1 is always an adult male who identifies himself as a senior officer of the vessel requiring aid; conclusive identification of the speaker with individuals known to have been aboard the vessels at the time of sinking has not been made to date. Any vessels approaching within approximately 75 meters of an SCP-1174-1 vessel will suffer immediate and massive damage to their hull, resulting in the vessel sinking within minutes of approach. Forensic analysis of recovered wrecks is inconsistent, indicating damage consistent with collisions, weapons fire, attacks from aquatic megafauna, and rust. In one instance, a vessel approaching SCP-1174-1-2 appears to have spontaneously capsized without suffering any other damage to its hull. SCP-1174-1-6 and SCP-1174-1-7 are known to have sunk as the result of SCP-1174-1 contact; it is unknown whether the other instances of SCP-1174-1 sunk due to contact as well or what form SCP-1174-1 phenomena may have taken prior to the appearance of SCP-1174-1-1. SCP-1174-2 are human beings present aboard vessels sunk as a result of contact with SCP-1174-1. SCP-1174-2 individuals, rather than dying as a result of drowning or hypothermia, remain alive and conscious after submerging and are capable of continuing to live for an undetermined period of time in the lower elevations of Lake Superior. Aside from tissue necrosis as the result of long-term exposure to water, SCP-1174-2 specimens display no unusual health problems as long as they remain submerged at a temperature of 1°-5°C, and continue to show signs of age at a normal rate. SCP-1174-2 individuals removed from the water, or placed into a warmer environment, will display symptoms of shock and/or heatstroke and typically die within one hour if not returned to the cold water. SCP-1174-2 individuals in the wild often subsist on fish and aquatic flora; while some have been noted to attack divers or each other, this behavior appears to be rare and discouraged by the community. SCP-1174-2 individuals typically live in communities at or near the site of their shipwreck and continue to possess full recollection of their lives prior to sinking. Most SCP-1174-2 individuals, unless suffering vocal cord damage as a result of their environment, retain the ability to speak and are capable of understanding each other while submerged. In interviews, captured SCP-1174-2 specimens have denied any explanation or knowledge of why or how they exist in their current state. There does not appear to be an upper limit on the length of time an SCP-1174-2 individual can remain alive in the absence of disease or natural hazards. The oldest known individual in captivity is a former crewman of the vessel D&C, currently 87 years of age, who became an instance of SCP-1174-2 upon that vessel's sinking in 1957. The Foundation began formal study and containment of SCP-1174 in 1975, after investigating several claimed sightings of the Edmund Fitzgerald following its sinking in early November. Several former crewmembers of the vessel were discovered living in its wreck upon the first formal exploration thereof in May of the following year and were taken into Foundation custody. Foundation folklorists have since connected "ghost ship" legends regarding the Bannockburn to sightings of SCP-1174-1-3 and found references in Ojibwa folklore to a "witch of Gichagumi" which lures fishermen to their doom. When sighted please contact local SCP Facility or containment number Secure Contain Protect

  3. Battle of Arafura Sea January 15 1962

    The Battle of Arafura Sea (Indonesian: Pertempuran Laut Arafura or Pertempuran Laut Aru) or Battle near Vlakke Hoek was an incident in the Vlakke Hoek bay (Etna bay) of the Arafura Sea in Western New Guinea on January 15, 1962, between Indonesia and the Netherlands. The battle stopped an attempt by the Indonesian Navy to drop off 150 soldiers in Kaimana in Dutch New Guinea for sabotage and to incite the local population against the Dutch government. Commodore Yos Sudarso was in charge of the operation at sea, while colonel Murshid commanded the infiltrants. Three Indonesian torpedo boats left the Aru Islands in the middle of the night but were intercepted near the New Guinea coast by a Dutch Neptune reconnaissance plane, as the Dutch had anticipated the action for weeks. The torpedo boats responded to the flares sent off by the plane by shooting at it. The Dutch destroyer HNLMS Evertsen then joined the scene and sank the KRI Matjan Tutul, commanded by Sudarso. The other two ships, KRI Matjan Kumbang and KRI Harimau, fled, but one hit a reef and the other was disabled by shooting. The Evertsen was able to save most occupants of the Matjan Tutul, but at least three sailors died, among whom was commodore Sudarso.[1] The Indonesian action itself was an abject failure and General Nasution even refused to relay the bad news to Sukarno, forcing colonel Murshid to do this in person. However, the small battle was partially responsible for the subsequent involvement of the Soviet Union and the United States in the Western New Guinea dispute, and it is honored in Indonesia by "Ocean Duty Day" (Hari Dharma Samudera), an annual nationwide day of remembrance. Twelve years after his death, Yos Sudarso was officially added to the register of Indonesian heroes of the Revolution, while the KRI Harimau was made into a monument at the Purna Bhakti Pertiwi museum in Taman Mini Indonesia Indah. !NOTE!This was the last time that ships were sunk by the Royal Dutch Navy!

  11. Clan build costly

    Question; Why is it so costly to increase the HQ at the Naval Base? from 30 to 40 members will cost you 20.000 oil So suppose you have 30 members of your clan and want to increase to 40. That would mean, they have to farm 20.000 oil that they can not use for building something else. Normally they acquire about 20 oil a day for doing daily crates (2 crates so 20 oil) Let us suppose they are real salt miners and do 30 just for argument's sake! so that is 30 X 30 a day so 900 oil a day (without building something else) 20.000:900=23 days So you have to encourage people to work hard every day to accumulate 30 oil for about a month, without getting something extra, For an increase 0f 10 players so 300 oil a day. So then if you can keep them work the treadmill you are now with 40 members. You whip them up to keep working without rewards what so ever and keep farming 30 oil a day from each member that's 40 X 30 oil a day= 1200 oil now you want to increase to 50 members (10 more) so you need 100.000 oil So then you need 100.000:1200= 84 days ( without any reward what so ever) then you build your final stage of 50 members and you can reap the benefits of 1500 oil a day!!! So the original 30 slaves have worked for a minimum of 107+2 days straight (30 oil) for their first structure in the Naval Base 10% to the cost of researched ships of tier V Realy?..................... In the real world that is not going to happen so why not make it easier to expand the clan's force! For example, 1000 gold to increase from 30 to 40 members? 500 for 40 to 50 members? Make clan bonus stack with regular bonus so if you have an event where you have USN Cruisers II to V at 50% you give the extra 10% for clan members (stacking) Or is this just a crazy idea?
