IRGC Speedboats Intercepted US Navy Vessel In Persian Gulf (Video)

Speedboats of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had intercepted a vessel of the US Navy in the Persian Gulf, a number of Iranian news sources reported on October 7.

The Iranian state TV aired footage of the incident. The footage shows several Iranian armed speedboats chasing after a Riverine Command Boat (RCB) of the US Navy. The fast assault boat was apparently escorting a US carrier strike group.

According to the Associated Press, AP, a spokesman for the US Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet, Commander Timothy Hawkins, said he was unaware of any unsafe interaction with Iran in the last two days.

The incident came amid reports of a near deal to resume the Iranian-US talks in Vienna which are meant to revive the 2015 nuclear deal. The talks have been on halt since June.

On January 12 of 2016, the IRGC naval forces captured two RCBs of the US Navy along with their ten sailors. The American sailors were released soon after.

The IRGC Navy keeps a close eye on US Navy movements in the Persian Gulf using speedboats, drones and several other means. Tehran warned the US and its allies against violating its sovereignty on several occasions this year.

Iranian navy is rapidly expanding. With thousands of fast attack vessels the americans cannot hide or outrun the IRGC with their criminal behavior.

They can only be shamed in front of a international audience yet again. Remember Venezuela or Bolivia?

Iranians arm the Venezuelans, the Syrians, the Iraqis and the Sudanese. Two socialist states and two islamist states and all of them are anti-American. The end of history is near.

Trolololo

Nonsensical & psychotic drivel as usual ^

farbat

nonsense iran doesnt arm anyone iran teaches hungry people how to fish that is pretty much the whole issue going on still the only ones who get direct iranian arms are still hezbollah and iraqi pmu

how do you connect such absurd things to eachother yes some nations might buy iranian weapons but they can do that openly there arent any laws forbidding iran to sell weapons and unilateral american law doesnt matter to iran so if venezuela might or might not buy iranian hardware its not the issue venezuela stood its ground for decades upon decades despite american ruinous conspiracies and the same with cuba so forget it you cant defeat those so simply get used to them being independent powers and work with them instead if you are smart

when it comes to some peoples problem with the figure assad the syrians have chosen as their leader yes in your view he might not have the authority and yes his father had enough of an authority to atleast keep the country somewhat together despite the zionists hostility and keep you hyenas away from syria but at the same time nobody of you have ever thought that assad would be still in syria and taking back land so dont underestimate people who fight for their survival

brah……have you made an attempt to answer my questions? What arms has Iran sold to the Venezuelans or Sudanese? or for that matter to the Syrians or the Iraqi’s? Could you elaborate please?

Ahson

Armed the Sudanese 15 years ago to the tune of less than $15 million with Safir jeeps, some ATGM’s and small arms……and here this Iraqi maseehi lower caste semite thinks Iran is involved in the Sudan?……lol…….you fuck, if Iran got involved the Sudan or anywhere else, it would mean an outright Iranian victory!……..you getting it?

The end of the USA is drawing near, but that will be far from the end of history.

Messianic Americans think they are God’s special people, even though their cuntry has sold out to Moloch.

End of YOUR (zionazi) history is near. A new chapter for peace yearning real world has begun. Bye.

All of Venezuela’s really serious military hardware was bought from Russia by Presidents Chavez and Maduro in 2000’s. An inventory of Su-30MKV, T-72B1V, S-300VM, BuK-M2E, BM-30 Smerch etc. They also have bunch of older US & French equipment from past when were a US controlled vassal state, but US sanctions makes these difficult to maintain due to parts embargoes (notice how US sanctions programs have repeatedly screwed over their NATO ‘allies’ the French in international arms contracts!).

…..only the end of the psychopathic bully and not before time!

At this point, Iran is intercepting American and Israeli drones and vessels every other day. Keep em coming Zionist, you’re only giving Iran free technology.

farbat

you asked me the question before about irans air force and you asked a scenario so i answered the scenario but also there was another question which was what would iran need to produce or buy for the airforce and the answer for this is a global hypersonic near space fighter similar to the kind of stuff russia has iam actually obsessed of these planes unfortunally iran just fought them it never owned them it shot it down when saddam had it but never could get one to reverse engineer either mig 25 or mig 31 would both be great to reverse engineer for iran and to produce something fitting yes so that need exists but its not really as important because its more anti intercontinental weapon and such so its more a strategic defense weapon iran does the missile defense path already in other ways but f14 is already a super heavy fighter so a mig 31 kind of jet would be extreme overkill for iran to own so it would be nice i always wanted iran to have such a weapon but it would probably still take years

btw just so you know karrar is supersonic and in low altitude can take on jets and kaman on itself in anti air combat can carry more anti aircraft missiles than some modern jets so consider irans drones as serious competition for fighter jets in low altitude engagement because they are high altitude is hard for any planes to avoid irans a2ad so there is no engagement against iran on that altitude like the global hawk had for example or a b2 would have

russia should cooperate with iran on the technology iran needs to build a near space fighter similar to mig 31 because iran can reverse engineer alot from the f14 to get to a point where it can build something on its own but there is still the fuel issue and alot of other issues which are basically micrometer up to nano meter precision refining and design it needs decades of experience with russian help it could be done under half a decade in iran but on its own it will take a whole decade the mig 31 is that much of a hard nut the f14 is itself probably the best machine america ever developed besides the turbine its perfect its the ultimate heavy long range sniper jet and it takes out enemies before they can detect it that without any stealth at the time but simply the superior radar the entire telemetric is great the missile control everything obviously technology advanced so they got upgraded but still the original in itself is still a great achievement for america

Knowing Iran, they probably have something like that hidden. Iran and its militias, especially Hezbollah only show what they want shown. Hezbollah doesn’t even let it’s soldiers have their phone with them so they can’t be tracked, Iran and Hezbollah always have some nice tricks up their sleeves.
I thought the f14 was considered a failure?

Ahson

Why don’t you buy the book Iranian F-14 units in combat by Tom Cooper and Farzad Bishop to find out about the F-14 in Iranian Air Force service? If you don’t have the money, I can send you the book myself. Let me know.

Jnoub

Thanks I’ll check it out.

farbat

i dont know if you can call that a failure and yes it was super expensive but again it was an engineering masterpiece in many ways and again the turbine issues the usa faced can be fixed with modern materials and such and the usa already fixed it so i wouldnt call it a failure they also dont call f35 a failure so how can f14 be called one and anyway its hard to call something a failure which still flies to this day

Hamdillah, better than what the media says it is.

american carriers are swimming doomsday machines and the moment iran would sink such a thing the entire region would be radioactively contaminated so iran will disable and seize them if america dares to play its chicken games again

Ahson

Iran’s not goin fight the shitbilly. We need the shitbilly against shotur/ moghal/ dalit………you getting the drift?……get real or you want me to explain this to you further? It is our specialty to fight the enemies against one another, so they fuck each other up and then we just move in like a fat gorbeh in a room full of moosh. Kill them all easily and bury them alive.

Good, they’ve got guts. Such news is of course not forthcoming from the global propaganda outlets: Reuters, AP, AFP. Thanks to SF for putting it up. English RT seems to be still on YT. The German version has been censored.
