Is this the country we're supposed to be afraid of destroying the whole world?

Just checking.

I wonder what Israel knows about this accident.

You don't release the tie downs until the drydock is fully flooded.

One can do a lot of really bad things with uranium. Ya don't need a tub to deploy it.

No, just a country that the MIC can say "ooga  booga! Iran scary! Oil! Persian Gulf" to scare the plebes into another war, just in case they don't get their war with Russia in Ukraine or China (Taiwan).

It's amazing how the Iranian ineptness in things makes Mossad look like genius...

Its suppose to look that way. To fool the enemy.
 
2021-12-07 1:04:29 AM  
That'll buff right out.

This is normal. It's a ship of the new "flounder" class.

Let's say they do develop a nuke and a delivery vehicle. Then they contract out the failsafe mechanism to whoever was working on this ship ...

Heh. Nice going, dumbdumbs.

Didn't they have another marine failure relatively recently? I seem to recall the jokes about not closing the screen door or something. Might have been a sub.

The Israeli Gremlins have been busy.....

Several...Their large supply/helicopter ship caught fire and sank..The big barge they made to
look like a US Carrier, also sank, in a an area where it created a hazard to shipping...They also sank one of their own ships in a friendly fire incident.. That's all within the last year or so..

Yeah, if you read the recent history of major "accidents" Iran has had, it stretches credulity.
 
2021-12-07 5:21:45 AM  
Technically, it would be pinging the side of the dry dock.

One ping only...

It's probably just "resting." Ships do that, you know.

What did you expect? They couldn't even get the "dry" part of dry dock right.

...that was a bad year for corvettes

I worked on a floating drydock in San Diego, CA. It was one of the very few facilities that could work on nuclear submarines on the West Coast.  At one point, the Navy wanted to reduce the staffing level. My response boiled down to: Do you really want a bunch of untrained (in dry dock procedures) personnel working on nucs?

Pining for the fjords?

For a country that's trying to play extremely rapid "catch-up," on a shoestring budget, and almost certainly needing to draw well beyond the pool of actual experts and capable individuals (not to mention institutional learning) that it has?

A higher-than-usual rate of accidents is a pretty predictable side effect here. Seeing Israelis behind every farkup is hysterical.

Somebody is so farking fired.

Probably about as much as we do and whatever their paid informants and analysts told them about the incident in the aftermath... Building and maintaining a Navy ain't easy or cheap and there are a lot of fark ups involved.

Did you guys use tie downs or ballast equalization?  It's something I thought about after posting but knowing is half the battle and 50% is passing since fark grades on a steep curve.

Can we really point fingers and laugh, hasn't the US been wasting a few billion on ship based gun system we can't use, failed catapults or that billion dollar ship that had to be retired early because it's a pos or whatever stupid shiat we've done lately on boats alone never mind the aircraft.

FTFA, their ships seem to have a lot of trouble staying afloat, not on fire and in deep water.

It's almost like a theocracy isn't conducive to anything having to do with technology. Even more so, when it's an authoritarian theocracy.

Iran warships the ground you walk on.
