|BQM-74 drone that washed ashore in the Philippines|
Here is the local TV station video report. There is no report of a missile firing but the navy has established its credibility on these sorts of issues so that doesn't much matter at this point. As Lex would say though, perhaps it was a drone trying to set the record for the closest approach to a ship. This one tied.
Shooting missiles at ships is inherently dangerous but it needs to be done.
