USS Fitzgerald: Death and valor on a warship doomed by its own Navy

Recommended Posts

The USS Fitzgerald had been steaming on a secret mission to the South China Sea when it was smashed by a cargo ship more than three times its size.

The 30,000-ton MV ACX Crystal gouged an opening bigger than a semitruck in the starboard side of the destroyer. The force of the collision was so great that it sent the 8,261-ton warship spinning on a 360-degree rotation through the Pacific. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/uss-fitzgerald-death-and-valor-on-a-warship-doomed-by-its-own-navy-1.567543
