--- I didn't say he was a bridge watchstander, I said he was an ex navy seal who has been on bridges. He goes a little into that in the video. He speaks for himself.
--- so you disagree with what he thinks happened, which is fine.
--- "shining lights on a fully manned bridge.." He goes into how the destroyer doesn't ping ais and it's blacked out, it doesn't show any light, it's made of radar absorbing materials, it's meant to be stealthy. If anyone was on the bridge of the cargo ship would the destroyer be seen?


****************************************************************************************************************************************************** *****************************
Note that the bridge has 'windows' and wings for watch standers. Transiting in a shipping lane, Fitz should have had running lights on. Bow, stern, port and starboard, so that other vessels would be able to see them. They would have a radar return, just not a large one. There is no question that the Crystal saw the Fitz as the captain of the Crystal claimed that he attempted to get their attention with lights.
