US Fifth Fleet Demonstrates He Is Ready to Protect the Strait of Hormuz from Iran

Accidents sometimes occur on sea lanes. According to the US Navy website, the USS Porter missile destroyer crashed into a Japanese tanker Otowasan near the Strait of Hormuz.

Where exactly it happened is not specified. The ships collided around 13: 00 local time. Who was to blame for the incident is also unknown, but the US Navy assured that "the collision was not fighting." However, one can hardly imagine that the tanker Otowasan, which was flying under the Panamanian flag, could be attacked by an American destroyer armed to the teeth.

According to the military, no one was injured in the incident. The destroyer received damage, the nature of which is being specified, but the Navy assured that the USS Porter is able to move independently. A warship performs tasks in the area of ​​responsibility of the Fifth fleet US Navy, whose command is in Bahrain.

As noted by Haaretz, the result of the collision is likely to be the removal of the destroyer captain from the post with the phrase "due to the inability to command." This practice is common in the US Navy.

Through the Strait of Hormuz is up to 35% of world oil transportation. Iran and the United States are fighting for control of this bottleneck (the strait is rather narrow). The north coast of the strait is controlled by Iran, and the southern coast is controlled by the allied states of the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Iran has repeatedly threatened to cut off navigation in the strait in response to the tightening of sanctions against it, and the command of the Fifth Fleet has assured that it will not allow this and will apply in this case all the forces and means.

        It attracts tankers with oil, after modifying the system, it will learn to "suck" oil from tankers laughing In general, the case is strange with the modern navigation system, even at night, and the Americans are to blame for a hundred pounds. A tanker has such inertia in changing course that it’s just seams ...
        However, it will probably be like in a bearded joke about the Lexus and the asphalt paver: "Well, tell me how you overtook, how you cut ..." laughing

          The movement of ships in this area is strictly regulated. Vessels follow strictly recommended courses in their own lane (like on a motorway). American warriors drive without any observance of the rules. If it was a solo voyage of a destroyer, he is obliged to comply with the International Rules for Preventing Collisions of Ships. (The same rules of the road, but at sea). There have been cases when rushing to your port side, playing on your nerves, does not communicate in VHF mode on the security channel and at the last moment turns under the stern. Arrogant guys. It is a pity that I did not hit the tanker's bulb, as if I would have let the bulbs in. In any case, if the tanker was in its lane (which is 100%), the navigation instruments are accurate, the destroyer was obliged not to interfere with the movement and not create an emergency. The Aegis system sees far away, but does not see under the nose. An average modern radar with ARPA will determine the elements of the target's motion and give recommendations for discrepancy.

        According to all American calculations, the tanker was supposed to sink, it was simply obliged, and not a single scratch should remain on the destroyer.

        Not that I didn’t see fleets of enemies,
        I hardly saw the Japanese barge!

        The moral of the collision is painfully clear
        Given the destroyer, the more pain!
        No matter how strong the power is,
        More importantly, someone with a strong will!

          Zhenya, if my memory serves me, then the supertanker has strong sides + ballast systems between the side and the oil tanks. In addition, the displacement is not comparable, it's like smashing a Kamaz smart, however, it can remember a bucket (which hangs on the towbar laughing

              Zhen, amers show-off seize, maybe they considered themselves "cool" that they should give way, but the fact that the tanker possesses inertia was not taken into account, but this is so ... But in general, the nuclear submarine was accompanied by a submarine that, due to its depth characteristics, was on the periscope and there was nothing else left but the way to "cut", but also nonsense all routes of supertankers have long been known. In general, as always, there are more questions than answers, but we will not find out the truth ..

              judging by the picture, the tanker struck his nose - most likely the amers didn’t miss it (maybe they hoped they could slip in, maybe something else - but if the tanker really missed, then you can’t be afraid of the US fleet wink ) and got it for the boom, the inertia of the tanker is great - even if it gives a reverse about 5 km will still pass until it stops ...

    a really recorded conversation between Spaniards and Americans on the frequency of “Extreme situations at sea” of navigation channel 106 in the Strait of Finisterra (Galicia) October 16, 1997 and decided to offer you,. Personally, this story reminds me more of a joke, although almost all the jokes are from my life. I think something like this happened probably somewhere in the 70s ..?

    Spaniards: (background noise) ... says A-853, please turn 15 degrees south to avoid a collision with us. You are moving directly at us, a distance of 25 nautical miles.
    Americans: (background noise) ... we advise you to turn 15 degrees north to avoid a collision with us.
    Spaniards: The answer is negative. Repeat, turn 15 degrees south to avoid a collision.
    Americans (different voice): The captain of the ship of the United States of America is speaking to you. Turn 15 degrees north to avoid a collision.
    Spaniards: We do not consider your proposal either possible or adequate, we advise you to turn south by 15 degrees so as not to crash into us.
    Americans (in elevated tones): CAPTAIN RICHARD JAMES HOWARD SPEAKS TO YOU, COMMANDING THE USS LINCOLN CARRIER, THE NAVY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SECOND AMOUNT OF THE Navy OF AMERICAN. We are escorted by 2 cruisers, 6 destroyers, 4 submarines and numerous support ships. I DO NOT ADVISE YOU, I ORDER TO CHANGE YOUR COURSE BY 15 DEGREES IN THE NORTH. OTHERWISE, WE WILL BE FORCED TO TAKE THE NEEDED MEASURES TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR SHIP. PLEASE IMMEDIATELY REMOVE OUR COURSE !!!
    Spaniards: Juan Manuel Salas Alcantara is speaking to you. We are two people. We are accompanied by our dog, dinner, two bottles of beer and the canary, which is now sleeping. We are supported by the Cadena Dial de La Coruna radio station and Channel 106, Extreme Situations at Sea. We are not going to turn anywhere, given that we are on land and are the lighthouse of the A-853 of the Finisterra Strait of the Galician coast of Spain. We have no idea what place we have in size among the Spanish lighthouses. You can take all possible measures that you consider necessary and do whatever you want to ensure the safety of your ship, which will crash into cliffs. Therefore, we again strongly recommend that you do the most meaningful thing: change your course 15 degrees south to avoid a collision.
    Americans: Ok, accepted, thanks.

        The Finister Strait does not exist. Lighthouses have a name, usually the area where they are installed. Lighthouse A-853 is a figment of the author’s imagination. There are no 106 security channels, there are 16 and 70. In your photo there is a lighthouse from the collection of lighthouses on the subject of Zadornov. There are a couple of dozen different lighthouses.

          I already wrote about exposing this story to cap. The point is not in the history itself, but in the fact that both the British and Spaniards and even Canadians ascribe it to themselves.

          Smoke without fire does not happen.

      In support of you, I can say that such a dialogue could not have taken place on Russian GDP (Inland Waterways). Negotiations between boatmasters among themselves and with controllers I would publish as an example of politeness and correctness. Even if someone specifically interferes, such as a lighthouse, it’s not like swearing, you will not hear a harsh word, they will simply bypass it.

      If there are such "defenders" during a possible conflict, then the Iranians will not have to try - the entire gulf will be blocked by sunken American destroyers, cruisers, aircraft carriers ... etc., which are led by the valiant sons of America with the phrase "in connection with inability to command "

    The Japanese scored x on the Americans and twisted the oil from Iran disguising themselves as a Panamanian flag, and the stupid Americans decided to stop the embargo violator by substituting the starboard side just did not take into account the passage of the strait and the bun from the mountain without brakes.

    So the Japanese were good for something ... Only modestly somehow, the destroyer did not gurgle. What a pity ... Wait now for the next time the Americans lose their vigilance! For a perfect feat, in the form of encouragement, you can allow Japanese sailors to look in the direction of the Kuril Islands. And it would not hurt to learn a little bit of them in terms of rams!

    The title of this article is "The US Fifth Fleet has demonstrated that it is ready to protect the Strait of Hormuz from Iran" and then the story of how a Japanese tanker flying the flag of Panama rammed an American destroyer into the bochin. After that, the Americans began to make excuses, preserving their own and so much disfigured face that we would swim to the home port ourselves (like a gauntlet), the evacuation of the destroyer was not yet required.
    And again I recall the title of the article: "The US Fifth Fleet has demonstrated that it is ready to defend the Strait of Hormuz from Iran."
    The question arises, the author, what do you powder our brains? And in Russian, what are you talking about all sorts of nonsense (nonsense, and that’s very softly said)?
    Hence the conclusion: the article is sloppy, not calling a spade a spade, but on the contrary, the failure of the actions of the American destroyer is given out for his victory.
