Video shot by a crewmember aboard the USNS Impeccable, an unarmed Navy ocean surveillance ship, during a confrontation with five Chinese vessels in the South China Sea. The Chinese vessels attempted to snag the Impeccable's acoustic array sonars from beneath the ship, and manuevered in front of the ship, coming to a complete stop and almost causing a collision. The Chinese vessels at times came within 25 feet of the ship. Footage provided by Navy Visual News Service.
