Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards launched a new "ultra-fast" boat capable of causing severe destruction after testing it during a three-day military drill.

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.

I think they believe this weapon will be their Great Savior. I believe it may have some successes but won't be that great after any official start of war. Good for a Surprise/Japanese sytle attck. Quick/Deadly. I saw another report that within the next 2 to 3 months, US and allies will be ready to attck Iran.

USA has to remember, it is not the size of your force but rather how you use that force you have: Things heating up all over the place. Tic, Tic, Tic....
