Regarding Irans "assymetrical" navy,
I can see a "nighmare scenario" where our US Sailors would be really busy plucking Iranian sailors out of the water for days and weeks.

Thanks for your insights.
However, I don't think anyone is saying Iran's navy is within the same league as the US. Clearly, this isn't the case.
The question asked by the report linked in the OP is whether Iran, despite having a significantly less advanced navy and armed forces, has managed to develop effective counter-tactics to face the US in the event of a conflict.

This seems like wishful thinking on the Iranians part. No navy, army or airforce in the world can even come close to matching U.S millitary superiority. How America uses such power is sometimes questionable, but their ability to wreak utter devestation on an enemy should never be in doubt.
