Trivia Edit

Some of the VLCC Latitude pictures [1] on Ship Simulator seem to be of an entirely different ship. She has a different bridge but the same type of hull. This 'mysterious' ship is included in Vstep's Rescue simulator, and believed to be an early version of what eventually became the Latitude.

If you travel away enough from the Latitude, its distance model replaces it.
