Not to mention the primary Nav aids would be radar, eyeballs, etc, not AIS

AIS track for ALNIC/MC bwlow:

Just spitballing but maybe DDG had crossed TEAM OSLO and the ALNIC/MC was in its radar shadow. If you look at the long track Team OSLO spent a while overtaking ALNIC and crossed from behind and port to passing to starboard.

McCain goes to pass across bow of OSLO, next sees Hyundai Global and hits the brakes, and then finds ALNIC just between OSLO and ALNIC. Similar to the incident with USS Porter a few years ago, one vessel masks another in a very crowded traffic convergence.
