Dramatic Photos Show Chinese Warship Come Within 45 Yards From US Destroyer

Dramatic photos have emerged of a confrontation we reported on Monday between the USS Decatur and the Chinese destroyer Luyang, which came within 45 yards of each other in the South China Sea. The photos of the two warships, obtained by gCaptain, reveal the “unsafe and unprofessional maneuver” that almost resulted in a collision “in the vicinity” of the Graven Reef in the Spratley Islands on Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m..
It is unclear how the photos were obtained, however they were deemed to be legitimate according to Stars and Stripes, citing a US Navy official.
