Watch: Dramatic moment US warship almost collides with Russian destroyer in Philippine Sea

The U.S. Navy has released footage of the dramatic moment one of its warships almost collided with a Russiandestroyer in the Philippine Sea.

The USS Chancellorsville, a guided-missile cruiser, nearly struck the Udaloy I DD 572 when it made an "unsafe maneuver", coming within 50 to 100 feet, according to the Navy's 7th Fleet in a statement.

The Navy subsequently released video and a satellite image showing the two vessels sailing perilously close to one another.

Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

The fault is probably not that of the USS Chancellorsvllle. The Russians have a habit of colliding - or nearly colliding with American warships, then blaming the U.S. captain. This has happened many times in the past.
 
You can see from the wake of the Russian vessel that he turned in the direction of the Chancellorsville, then altered his course again to a close encounter, before again turning away.
 
The overtaking vessel is the burdened vessel and has the responsibility of avoiding collision. Clearly this is a prevoking action on the part of the Russian.

Additionally, Chancellorsvllle was conducting helo recovery ops at the time so other vessels are 'required' to maintain 1000 yard clearance.
