In the Russian media, citing Iranian sources, information appeared, confirmed by a photo, that an American aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf was attacked by an Iranian attack UAV.


A few hours ago, an Iranian attack unmanned aerial vehicle, armed with at least four cruise missiles, entered to attack an American aircraft carrier, but was not noticed by the air defense systems of the escorting ships. Speech, according to preliminary data, is about the UAV Shahed-129.









In the images presented, you can see that the Iranian Air Force attack unmanned aerial vehicle successfully flew to an entire aircraft carrier strike group of the US Navy at a distance of only a few kilometers, while the drone was not detected, which allowed the IRGC forces to successfully work out approaches to attack as against escort ships and against the aircraft carrier itself.

According to some reports, Iran could use electronic countermeasures to deactivate US air defense systems, and if the information on this matter is true, then experts believe that the Iranian military has made significant progress in developing such systems, since, if necessary, one massive missile strike can leave the United States without an entire carrier strike group.

Washington does not officially comment on the emergency that happened for the entire American fleet.


Thank.

Why woud they need to be fake you can buy a droane at walmart that could get those images. A small droane will not show on radar because they are set not to. If they werent you would have them tracking birds flying. Not a great idea especially if you activate auto defenses, launching missiles at birds could be a huge problem especially for the bird.

"Shahed 129 (Persian: شاهدد, English: "eyewitness"; sometimes s129) is an Iranian single-engine medium-range unmanned aerial vehicle (UCAV) developed by Shahed Aviation Industries for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Shahed 129 is capable of combat and reconnaissance missions and has a stamina of 24 hours; It is similar in size, shape and role to the American MQ-1 Predator and is widely considered the most capable drone in Iranian service".

Iranian citizens don't like their leaders. We should terminate the most radical ones tomorrow. That would Make a lot of people very happy in Iran, and prevent lives from being taken by this trigger-happy regime of crazies.

Do you have a legally certified power of attorney to speak on behalf of Iranian citizens? Or are simple words enough and everyone will immediately believe you?

So Iran is now the #1 military cuz they could easily sink Russia, the UK, France, and China's even weaker less advanced navies.

I'm a skeptic tho lol.

Why would Iran sink the ships of Russia, China, and so on? Is it their bases that surround Iran, and their fleet off the Iranian coast?

It's a straight copy of the predator.

Does this mean the US secretly had the ability to sink their own fleet with a drone all along but hoped no one would find out?

This means every fleet on earth is vulnerable.

Which sounds pretty fishy dont you think?
Like maybe this was all BS?

They didn't have to sink any American ships either to prove to your gullible ass that they could sink a whole carrier group with a drone anytime.

They even claimed the drone was undetected with zero evidence other than the fact they didn't shoot it down.

According to the number on the side of the island, that is the USS Nimitz, CVN-68. The USS Nimitz is currently located somewhere in the Malacca Straights. That is in or near Malaysia. That is a very, very, very long way for a drone to travel from Iran to look at it.

There is nothing invulnerable in the world, apart from the fix idea, which many had. There has always been a shield and a sword, a harmonious combination of their capabilities.

It's not about why...

It's about that Iran is #1 and can sink the whole US battlegroup like it was nothing.

So therefore this drone could sink any modern fleet if the great Persia so felt the need.

Russia can't stop Iran if Iran can steamroll the US Navy so easily...

Do you even think about any of this or just blindly support anything anti-US in nature.

You're right, this is the USS Nimitz (CVN-68).
On September 18, 2020, it entered the Persian Gulf for the first time in ten months, the US Navy's 5th Operational Fleet reported.

I don't think Iran seriously wanted to sink an aircraft carrier. They are not crazy. This is a demonstration of strength and capabilities, legal war games for adult boys.
Moreover, there is no need to sink aircraft carriers. It is enough to disable their runways or other necessary functionalities.

That wouldn't sink a modern warship.
Even if they aimed it at the magazine's it still won't penetrate even thin decks.

Warships are way more sturdy than ppl realize, it can take 5+ torpedoes to scuttle a ship and those are seriously huge warheads and cause incredible damage many times scaled beyond a 50 lb bomb.

My prevous location for the USS Nimitz was out of date. It is in the Arabian sea. That is much closer than I thought it was.
