Re: Iran can amass a swarm of 10,000 speed boats with cruise missiles
Every single day for a very long time now Iran's capabilities have been spied and assessed. Why would the US needlessly expose itself to a known threat if the commanders weren't confident in their ability to undermine the threat?

Don't you think the US would choose a different plan. As an example, I can guarantee you that no US carriers will be in the Persian Gulf, or within several hundred miles of Iran.

Why would they do such a dumb ass thing when they could still accomplish their mission?

To be sure Iran is enough of a threat that securing the strait of Hormuz and the entire gulf is going to be very problematical. The US navy has said as much. Surface vessels cannot defend themselves there.

But that just means it will take longer. It sure doesn't mean that the entire 5th fleet is going to rush in with their eyes crossed slobbering on themselves.

Do phalanx turrets not over heat? That seems to be what people make it out to be. Also would the apaches not be shot at? It sounds like a video game the way things are perfect in the US military.

Also i love how the video you displayed the "speed boat" just sat there for the phalanx. I wanna see that thing take out 200 of actual speed boats that are actually speeding.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23746394


Seriously? it was designed to take out hundreds of sea skimmer missiles like the exocet.


Your wet dream of speedboats against a warship is nothing more than that.

All wet.
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

With our superior technology, how were these shot down with such primitive weapons?

RPGs are simple, and we have gunners who should take them all out right? You have to remember the human element. Americans may be trained well, but seriously when shtf, and you have that many people/ships/planes around you... You're gonna lose men.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23746394


The Phalanx is the last line of defense for those speedboats that do manage to get close to the big US ships but the majority of those boats will be taken out by planes and helicopters long before they get close enough to strike.

A fully loaded F-18 Super Hornet could probably take out a few dozen of those boats, now multiply that by 90 planes a carrier has and you get the idea !

Also Apaches flying at their maximum altitude would probably be out of range of the speedboats and would shred them to pieces with hellfire missile !

Heck yeah. Speed boats are so effective they make large vessels obsolete.

NOT!

Limited range, limited armament, limited electronic capability, limited defense (a half second burst from any aircraft mounted gun will sink such a boat), limited to fair weather.

If this gets kicked off(God forbid) it defiantly isn't going to be a push over like Iraq. Though it's rather pathetic a big nation like ours is still picking on smaller impoverished countries that pose no threat to our security.

All supposedly in the name of freedom and safety when we're the ones destroying freedoms, lives, cultures and oppressing millions people abroad. Not to mention sending hundreds of thousands of our youths(sons, fathers, brothers, mothers, sisters, daughters, etc.) out to die for politics while the rich profit from their blood.

OP really doesn't, grade a moran.

The USS Abraham is practically larger than the entire Iranian navy... America hasn't even 'gone' to war in ages... In total war, you think Iran is a bee-hive? Well, America is a shit storm.

Re: Iran can amass a swarm of 10,000 speed boats with cruise missiles
what a crock of shit

firstly, i saw NOT ONE missile being launched from a speedboat

the one missile that was launched came from a warship

the target boat was nothing more than a sitting duck, not fighting back

does ANYONE here think this is how it would play out?

lmao

yeah Iran. go on, launch your deadly speedboats at us!
