It'll be fun to watch when they have to call on the Great Satan to fix their boats when they break and they can't get home.

I wonder if the Emperor Mong speaks Farsi?

"Go on, open fire on the Great Satan's ships and coastline! You'll be a Hero of Allah!":muhaha:

Wow, I bet that the owners of the world's largest navy are really shitting themselves at the thought.


FFS, even the post SDSR RN would be in fits of hysterics at the idea of the Iranian Navy projecting power off of our coast.

Apparently the Iranians have been building up their naval fleet for several years;

Alas, much bigger than the RN tho'. =|

It's an excuse for them to buy charging adaptors for those iPods though.

would the Iranians see the funny side if the US coastguard decided to go grab some of them and parade them about on tv a bit for violating US waters?

Actually the funny side of it is imagining what sort of paranoid hysterics the G2 geeks will be in over this. What blue water capability does the Iranian navy have anyway ? ...really up the ante, ask for basing facilities in Venezuela ?

Not a chance in Hell, the dozy sods would get Pirated by the Somalis, now that WOULD be interesting.

We are talking the Iranian Navy here not the RN, just wanted you to be sure.

Now who says that your Religious extremist does not have a sense of humour?

"powerful presence", would that be one or two battle fleets? Or, perhaps, a carrier battle group. No?
So it may be a corvette instead, this one will after all be manned by steely eyed potential Martyrs for Allah. Inflatable boats nearly sank the guided missile destroyer USS Cole, so a tin can displacing a couple of tons would constitute 'powerful".

Staying on station should not be an issue, there would only be one port on Cuba that would be closed to them.
