Default The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS AFRAID OF THIS:






It must be a slow news day for the government to announce it's extremely concerned about Iran purchasing a boat that goes 63 mph..

I mean, don't torpedo's go way faster then 63 mph? So why is the US concerned about a boat that goes that fast?

It wants to attack aircraft carriers with torpedos going 63 mph.......



Dont our aircraft carriers have these things that can shoot down 8" aluminum tubes flying at 1630 mph?





Im pretty sure that could put a hurting on a speed boat.

I spent more than a few days in the Tonkin Gulf aboard CVA 66 while attached to VMFA 333.

Lets just say that while there, I personally witnessed more than one threat removed from the water. (permanantly)

This little speedboat , while seemingly harmless, is as much a threat as any other attack on a carrier by taking the weapon close to the fleet before it can be stopped.
