The USA reacted to the creation by Iran of the layout of the American aircraft carrier of the "Nimitz" type

American satellites took a photo of a section of the Iranian coast, which was captured by the aircraft carrier. It is reportedly about an imitation of a US Navy aircraft carrier. The model of the aircraft carrier by Iran was created to carry out exercises, during which a missile strike on a large warship that poses a threat can be practiced.

Previously, Iran had already conducted exercises of this kind. So, about five years ago, Iranian troops destroyed a previously created model of an aircraft carrier of the US Navy using missiles and artillery installations. During combat training maneuvers, the Iranians used the so-called mosquito tactics fleet, attacking the "aircraft carrier" with several high-speed boats.

According to US media estimates, based on data from satellites, the copy of the aircraft carrier, created by Iran, has the following dimensions: about 200 meters long and 45-50 meters wide.

The model aircraft carrier was towed to the area of ​​the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic waterway through which a large traffic of oil products is carried out. Initially, the model of the ship was located in the area of ​​the port of Bandar Abbas.

On board the imitation of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, the Iranians placed 16 copies of carrier-based fighters, some of which are similar to the F / A-18.

The United States of America reacted by calling the Iranian actions "blatant provocation." The American press adds that the preparation of the imitation of the US Navy aircraft carrier Iran "represents as a signal to Washington."

    Who can talk about "blatant provocations", but not the Americans. Regarding the layout, it's okay. they are practicing strikes directly on what constantly looms in this region and openly threatens. When the Americans conduct exercises and shoot at mock-ups of Russian tanks, conduct "air battles" with planes outwardly similar to Russian ones (there are also those produced in the USSR (Russia)), for some reason this is not considered a provocation. Purely American - "What is allowed to Jupiter is not allowed to the Bull."

      I guess they train on IMMEDIATE threat and in the right place. The Strait of Hormuz is a "pain point" of hydrocarbon traffic. If anything, it will hurt EVERYONE who does not have oil pipelines to Europe tongue a joke, of course, but in every joke ...

      I tried to google the original source, which of the US representatives called the production of a copy of the aircraft carrier for the exercises a "provocation" (because it really would be a pure double standard) and could not. It seems that the author of the note added this part on his own, in a creative impulse.

    Iran made a model of an aircraft carrier for the second time - this is a provocation and ay-ay-ay, and mattresses for decades have been using models of Soviet equipment in exercises, aircraft in Soviet / Russian camouflage are good. This is not a provocation.

    Is this diction or translation difficulties? Washington really should be concerned with what signal Iran's preparation of an imitation of a US Navy aircraft carrier should carry: "stay away so we don't confuse targets" or "outsiders B" ... laughing

      I believe that the Iranians are warning the mericatos by this (at the same time they are trolling - a hybrid war, as it were). Any opposition to the mericatos is only good. good

    It's strange. To fence such a target, drag it to the straits area (there is no way to push through there), and place models of fighters on the deck. What is this for?!

    Do them nefig, and there is nowhere to put the loot. Even a model in 2/3 the size of the original and without functionality was expensive. And to sink it - yes, it is easy, I suppose even the hull is not divided into compartments, and the board is cardboard. But the original does not go without an escort of a Ticonderoga-class cruiser, at least a couple of Arley Burke destroyers, and at least three frigates, plus a submarine. Well, the air wing on it is not dummies, they can fly and shoot. So the value of such exercises, apart from the propaganda (how cool we are, we sink the aircraft carrier with boats with grenade launchers!), Is at least problematic. In real life, the mosquito fleet will be greeted with anti-aircraft autocannon fire, and whoever breaks through it will use large-caliber machine guns, of which there are several in any direction on each American ship, all these motor boats with a bomb and kamikaze are extinguished. Well, planes and turntables will also practice.

      The mosquito fleet is now represented by corvettes and missile boats. Iran in the fleet mainly uses the Chinese-made C-802 anti-ship missiles, installed on frigates, corvettes and boats. The missile range is up to 120 km. So at the expense of anti-aircraft guns and machine guns, you got excited.
      Iran has no more options for counteraction, except how to simultaneously attack from different directions with small ships, boats and submarines. With such an attack, it is possible that damage will be done to the AUG. So they are working out their only possible tactics.

    This model has been there for a long time, it was visible on Google maps even during the construction process
    Judging by the fact that there was no special factory infrastructure nearby, this is not a mock-up, but rather an ordinary decoration, as for a film

    That is, painting your aircraft in the color of the Russian Aerospace Forces and arranging battles with them is the norm, but bombing it as a model of an aircraft carrier is not the norm.

    The Yankees have never made copies of ours or Chinese exercise planes. For the exercises, they used a squadron "Aggressor" in which there were the same American planes, but painted in the colors of the Soviet ones. In particular, their F-5s in Soviet colors played the role of our fighters for a long time. After the collapse of the USSR, when the United States had the opportunity to buy our equipment from our former allies, they used them. BUT NEVER MAKE COPIES
