I know this is the official report but forgive me if I still suspect that someone (China) hacked the sensors on those ships and made them blind to the other vessels.
If you read the reports it is clearly a case of human incompetence and failure. That is backed up by hard evidence. I am not saying someone couldn’t hack a DDG but in these cases it doesn’t appear so.
It doesn’t seem to be the case. Looks more like dereliction of duty to me.
That is not to say the Navy may be hiding some pertinent information for politically correct reasons, or so as to avoid an international incident.
Anyway, you are certainly forgiven. But to me it doesn’t appear to be the case.
That is utter BS because the first sensor and last sensor any competent OOD uses his his eyeball. In between he will check the radar plot, which he will keep himeself - in addition to the plot in CIC - and if the radar is telling him something different from his eyeball he will first believe his own eyes.
Also, he will call the CO and tell him that he needs to come to the bridge.
