Thursday, April 22, the first day of their large-scale military exercise in the Straits of Hormuz, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards put their new radar-evading, unmanned Ya Mahdi speedboat through its paces. Operated by remote control, this vessel is claimed by Iran to be able to track warships and drive 7-meter holes in their hulls with its missiles. Tehran reports that the speedboat is being mass produced.
the model under construction in Iran had a speed of 61.5 mph and was to be armed with Russian-made Shkval (Screaming Storm) torpedoes which, at a speed of 360 knots per hour, were the fastest in the market and therefore invisible to radar.
