American weapons ridiculed for not being able to sink an Iranian oil tanker:
Translated by google
Two US anti-ship missiles about production failed to sink the defenseless Iranian tanker.
Amid Tehran accusing Saudi Arabia of assaulting its oil tanker, it was reported that anti-ship missiles fired by Saudi Arabian Air Force planes could not even cause any significant damage to the oil tanker, although in essence these missiles are designed to destroy much more protected warships. For this reason, American weapons were subjected to serious ridicule.
“A defenseless tanker, filled with flammable liquids and fuel, remained afloat even despite the fact that two cruise anti-ship missiles were launched at once on it. How was Washington going to fight the formidable fleet of the same Russia or China? ”
“First, the American missile defense systems were disgraced, and now also anti-ship missiles. Is this the best evidence that American weapons are made for their own defeats? ”
It should be noted that at the moment there remains a significant risk that Iran could strike in Saudi Arabia in response to an attack on its own ship, which, by the way, according to a number of data was completely chartered by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
