Info Wars – U.S. Navy Mocks Iran as ‘Experts’ at Making a Dummy Aircraft Carrier

Shortly after Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forces conducted live fire drills in the Straits of Hormuz, attacking a 2/3 sized replica of a U.S. carrier, the U.S. Navy mocked the Iranians. A post on the Navy’s Instagram account included a photo of Iran’s dummy carrier along with the caption: “Iran builds target ship. They’re experts at that.”

The Instagram post has gotten over 74,000 likes and 2,000 comments, reported American Military News (AMN).

As predicted in my earlier piece, on Tuesday, IRGC forces attacked the fake aircraft carrier, landing troops by helicopter on the replica’s wooden deck. It later fired missiles from various small boats and at least two ballistic missiles from underground launchers which I described in another article today.

Business Insider also posted a humorous photo that showed the dummy Iranian carrier sitting in the water with a few fake planes aboard it, and an arrow and caption saying “Fake Ship.” This was next to a photo of a U.S. supercarrier steaming with its escort ships and flight deck fully loaded with combat aircraft, and an arrow and caption saying, “Real Ship.”

The U.S. Navy has the world’s largest aircraft carrier fleet. This includes 11 massive, nuclear-powered supercarriers, in addition to its fleet of nine amphibious assault ships such as the just commissioned, USS Tripoli. The latter Marine Corps-oriented ships can launch helicopters and Vertical/Short Take-Off and Landing (V/STOL) aircraft like the V-22 Osprey, and the Marine F-35B joint strike fighter.

When configured with full loads of F-35Bs, these impressive ships are called “Lightning Carriers”.

U.S. Carrier Strike Groups (CSG) also include numerous other warships as escorts and complements, such as cruisers, destroyers, and frigates, as well as submarines.

Other than its dummy target ship, Iran has no aircraft carriers, or anything remotely close to them. The IRGC Navy relies on small missile boats to carry out ‘swarm boat attacks,’  but the U.S. Navy appears to be saying it sees all Iranian ships as good “targets.”
