JDS Yugiri (DD 153):
 
Involved in the June 3rd, 1996 accidental shootdown of a US Navy A-6E Intruder, during a life-fire CIWS exercise (part of exercise RIMPAC '96). Aircrew ejected safely and were subsequently rescued by the Yugiri. Though a malfunction in the Phalanx CIWS was initially implicated as the cause of the incident, human error was later blamed.
