Iran is sailing a flotilla of vessels through the Gulf Of Mexico part of a tour of South America. It will be interesting to see how well this goes. That's Blue water navy territory and UNREPS are really only practiced by a few navies. There are only 5-6 true blue water navies in the world and it can get lonely out there is things go wrong.
That being said they will no doubt have some quiet undersea escorts courtesy of the USN along with the usual suspects on the surface and air.

Ill be interested to see if they can get there and back without needing outside assistance, it would be highly amusing to me if they got close to the US and one of their ships started having serious problems and the Coast guard had to come assist.
Apparently they had enough left over after their party, supporting terror groups in the Middle East, exerting control over Iraq, supplying a war in Yemen to take their tincan navy for a cruise around the world.
