Complte and utter bollox, one Sunburn cannot wipe out a carrier it only carries a 320kg warhead

However. I must disagree with you as to the significance of this event, in that clearly, even as an American myself, it does kinda give me the feeling that "Hey, if they wanted to they could have, and the carrier would have been caught by surprise."

First time I've ever heard that the exact location of our fleet was so widely known, and unclassified as dj put it earlier.
It doesn't make sense at all to me from a strategic standpoint. So I suppose Iran has underwater cameras mounted on little mini subs too, buzzing around merrily with all the fish and taking pictures of all our subs?

Anybody who thinks Iran has a weapons system that could take out a state-of-the-art U.S. Naval Vessel is simply living in LA-LA Land. Give me a break.
