FTA: Tasnim, another semi-official news agency close to the Guard, reported that "an investigation" has found that the Nimitz-class carriers used by the U.S. could be seriously damaged or destroyed if 24 missiles were fired simultaneously.

phalamir: TuteTibiImperes: Of course, when your entire command, control, and communications infrastructure is destroyed within hours of war breaking out, it makes it much more difficult to coordinate those 24 missiles.

I realize this isn't the Iranian naval command, but about 12 years ago, the US gamed an invasion of Iran.  The US officer in charge of being Iran simply had the Iranians load explosives into Zodiacs and told them to zerg-rush the US naval vessels, but not giving any further directions.  The judges declared he ended up sinking everything in the Gulf, even accounting for the US using reasonable countermeasures.  Don't get cocky about technological superiority quite yet, hoss


The ability to destroy an aircraft carrier is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

/I find your lack of faith disturbing

iheartscotch: Good luck getting close enough to a Nimitz-class carrier to fire those 24 rockets.

/ Me thinks they forgot about the usual escort of carriers; ie destroyers. Also, what the carrier actually has in her.


Babies right? It's totally babies.

sdd2000: I meant to make it clear that it would be the cruise missiles not the destroyers and attack subs that would rain down.


If a much of destroyers and subs started falling from the sky, that would definitely throw them off balance.

No, it's F-18 super hornets. With a top speed of 1,100ish mph; the carrier could hang 200 miles out to sea and the hornets could get to Iran in 15ish minutes.

/ no, I am far too lazy to do the actual math; that would involve effort


So you are saying that attacking a US carrier battle group would be something akin to a twelve year old boy prodding a nest of stinging insects with some sort of stick or branch?  A "hornets' nest" as it were?

I think they took the video down, but they used to have one on YouTube with a female narrator talking about the modern and advanced Islamic Iranian Navy's submarine force, while the video showed some very nice wooden models of submarines on Lucite stands in a small gallery.

Even when it was up, comments had been disabled for this video by the request of the video's poster.

I pray for the men on our fifteen Nimitz-class carriers that have to operate in fear of these wooden models.

Not so bad considering the entire country of Iran is also a target in case of a war.
