Iran Admiral: US ships are target

7 May, 2014

Iran is targeting American ships in the Persian Gulf in case of war. Iranian Revolutionary Guard naval forces exercise with a mock up American Carrier in case of a full scale war with the United States. Admiral Ali Fadavi, who leads the Iranian naval forces remarks:

Aircraft carriers are the symbol of America’s military might. The carriers are responsible for supplying America’s air power. So, it’s natural that we want to sink the carriers

American officials are dismissive:

Firing weapons at a stationary structure floating on pontoons is not a realistic representation of having the capability to target a 100,000-ton warship … maneuvering at speeds in excess of 30 knots.
