That little ship Jamaran & it's helicopter packs a modest punch, but it's a punch no US naval captain would volunteer to take. Anti submarine torpedoes, anti ship missiles, anti aircraft missiles. A neat, home-grown little ship which does what it says on the tin. It's based on the Vosper Mk5, a old English design, smaller version of the now redundant Royal Navy Type 21 frigate.

Size isn't everything, you know.

Unless that ship is the size of a fly, any U.S. warship equipped with Aegis or better will see it coming from a looong way and our ships have guns that can launch shells several miles away. In terms of technology Iran is no threat to us. A war between the U.S. and Iran would be like a green beret fighting a caveman....

...or like the french did in WWI when they sent a cavalry charge at the german frontlines who just happened to be packing fully automatic weapons, nerve gas and flamethrowers behind rows of barbedwire.
