Peeps in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
How many crashes have there been recently involving the US Navy. Running into container ships ... because ... crew failures.
And yet ... you want to demean Iran's Navy ... such as it is.

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.
