How many people have had this problem:

How a CV, the largest ship afloat, can disappear from view when:

1) your straight sailing at it

2) No smoke around

3) It's well within your ships visual range

4) You've already shot at it

This seems to happen often, like BOTs shooting at you and you don't see them till the second salvo (same ship class).

The answer is simply that you weren't the ship spotting it.

Do you have any replays? Maybe a short clip, or a series of screenshots?

Pulicat, yes I was the one spotting it. In fact in many battles I'm chasing it, as the last BOT ship,  and it simply disappears. I've been playing for about a year and half so I know what's what, so to speak. And Panbun, if I remember to hit the "copy" button, I will do so for others to see. I hope that I set the POLL up correctly as I'd like to see what others have to say.

Not enough information to make anything more than guesses as to what's going on. I've never had a ship disappear that I didn't know why, at least after the fact.

IJN Carriers are usually pretty stealthy. Fires going out, AA or secondary guns stop firing and drop the spotting range back to base range, it could disappear.

CV moving into someone's smoke, you don't see the smoke if your zoomed in.

CV moving away, and sailed out of spotting range.

CV managed to put enough of an island between you and him, even though from your point of view, you should see over it.
