Question
Iran attacks (replica) US aircraft carrier

Isnt that cute... I guess they forgot to replicate the boats defenses.

I guess it was just some sort of publicity stunt.

I would guess that exercise was more for the domestic market than international.

It is meant to give an impression to the Iranian people that the Iranian military are not totally helpless against American "aggression".

To the West it looks rather sad, we all know that those boats would be matchwood before they could get within range of their own weapons.

And of course, all militaries practice against mockups of the "Enemy", why should the Iranians be different.

Certainly nothing to get freaky about.
