Sheesh, the Arliegh Burke class can, the USS Benfold collided with a Japanese tug during a towing exercise. Apparently the tug lost engines and drifted into the destroyer. A full damage report is not yet available but it thankfully appears that there were no casualties. This is the 5th collison in the Pacific this year.

This is getting ridiculous and embarrasing.

Dead tug drifting into our ship hardly seems on scale of the other two collisions we had. I’m not to concerned about this one, can’t turn a warship on a dime.

Are being made to look weak or are portraying weakness?

That is the question.

Who's trying to draw who into war?

So it's weakness that the tug lost power and drifted into the ship? How exactly is this one going to be our fault?

If the tug isn't right next to the ship, shouldn't it be able to take action to avoid a collision? Obviously if they are very close, avoidance most likely won't happen.

but theyre so good at drawing d0ngs in the sky?

how does this keep happening?

what are the security measures for a boat drifting towards your destroyer?

it could have been laden with explosives. this is crazy

The tug would have been either up against the hull, or within a few feet of the hull already, preparing to push up against it. It's not like they started halfway across the harbor and they just sat there watching it.

How is it going to maneuver if it doesn't have power?


The tugboat lost propulsion and drifted into the USS Benfold during a routine towing exercise, according to a press release from the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet. No injuries or fatalities resulted from the incident, and damage to the Benfold, a guided-missile destroyer ship, was minimal, according to the release.

That was about the navy, not the tug.

It's not about who zaphod it's about perception.
Why is this a story if it doesn't mean anything?

They are, but it's strongest around the bow, where they're actually pushing against the other ship. There's little to no protection on the sides or the stern. .

It is a story, it's not the story being portrayed. It's being made out that it was yet another careless accident by 7th Fleet and it's not.

With it being a tow exercise, the Benfold would have had enough time to go "ut oh" before they hit.

Why would that be?...

The perception of weakness.....

All the ships are in the 7th Pacific fleet....
