(FOX NEWS) –  The U.S. Navy has released footage of the dramatic moment one of its warships almost collided with a Russian destroyer in the Philippine Sea.

The USS Chancellorsville, a guided-missile cruiser, nearly struck the Udaloy I DD 572 when it made an “unsafe maneuver”, coming within 50 to 100 feet, according to the Navy’s 7th Fleet in a statement.

“This unsafe action forced Chancellorsville to execute all engines back full and to maneuver to avoid collision,” said the Navy’s 7th Fleet in a statement.

The Navy subsequently released video and a satellite image showing the two vessels sailing perilously close to one another.
