    I cant see an issue with the Lanzhou turning to port instead of starboard as there appears to be a distance ofseveral hundred meters between the ships for the turn to be executed safely.

    Why the griping that the Lanzhou was only about 45 meteres abeam of the Dec.Is'nt that about the distance between two smaller ships that are reprovisioning at sea.?

    It’s fitted with twin Yamaha outboard motors, wonder what the horse power is.

    If you were on a passenger ferry in open water and another ship passed within 45m of you, I don’t think you would conclude that it was being navigated in compliance with the ColRegs - which was the erroneous assertion in Strategic Analyst's post.

    This is not a civllian ferry situation. Its two navaĺ destroyers whose two crews have been trained to traveĺ 45 to50 meters abeam of each other when replenishing.
    In the current situation, one was telling the other to 'shove off'.
    And the way your naval boats have been found to be in the wrong when bumping into other merchant ships in the SCS. I wonder if your crew are at all familiar with Col Regs
    Even those 800000 ton a/c are abeam at 90 odd meters because of the deck overhang.

    I don't see a point to argue about the recent DDG encounter between USN and PLAN. Both are right according to their own reasonings, but wrong according to the others. One is exercising "right", the other is enforcing law. As in daily life, police will deliberately ram a suspect's car to stop it. There is nothing shameful for the police to be aggressive. On the other hand, the suspect will claim his right so long as no legal judgement can be put on him.

    Don't waste the time.

    So two of the elongated 052D, one 055 and another ship which could be any of the two. Actually looks a bit more like 052 to me but it's too early to be sure.

    I think so too

    How strange one Type 055 and one Type052D

    I wonder why, I thought it would continue 2+2 with 052D and 055 side by side
