Re: Another Navy ship collision. 10 "missing"
If you look at the tracks in nolatom's post carefully and at max. screen zoom, it appears possibly that the ALNIC lost rudder control and then 'hooked' itself bow-to-port and into the McCain --- if in fact the McCain is represented by the purple line.
The McCain (in other media pics) appears to be well damaged below the waterline suggesting that the ALNICs 'bulb' (bow) hit the McCain.
