In Video: Iranian Drone Tracks U.S. Aircraft Carrier Group In Gulf Waters

File image.

The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has tracked and identified a United States aircraft carrier in the Gulf of Aden and the Sea of Oman, the official news agency IRNA reported on November 28.

“The intelligence systems of the Navy of Iran’s IRGC tracked and identified the aircraft carrier through the exchange of information with the army’s naval forces and thanks to their complete dominance over the Strait of Hormuz,” the agency said

Video footage released by IRNA showed the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, along with USS San Jacinto, a Ticonderoga-class cruiser, and two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, USS Stethem and USS Gravely. French Navy Aquitaine-class frigate FS Languedoc was also with the group.

U.S. defense officials said after the release of the video that an Iranian drone “harassed” USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Persian Gulf.

“An Iranian drone flew near the USS Eisenhower in the Persian Gulf today,” Fox News correspondent Liz Friden said. “The Ike was in international waters & the Iranian drone ignored multiple warnings. This is being deemed unsafe & unprofessional.”

The Iranian announcement came just two days after USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and its strike group entered the waters of the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz. The U.S. Central Command said that the carrier strike group was deployed to “ensure the safety of navigation” in the waters of the Persian Gulf.

USS Dwight D. Eisenhower was deployed in the Middle East earlier this month in order to support Israel, who is waging a destructive war against the Palestinian Gaza Strip. Iran and its allies have been making efforts to stop the war.

“to ensure the safety of navigation” in international waters? since when is it incumbent on the us to ensure the safety of navigation in any international waters? also the drone was visually watching not attacking so why was that considered harassment? can one imagine if iran had a fleet of war ships in international waters adjacent to the us how the us would react?

Eisenhower

it is unsafe and unprofessional to fly close to a carrier launching or landing aircraft i wonder why they did not shoot down the drone.

because at this moment there would be no more us fleet. you enters the “””persian gulf””” via the strait of hormuz. iran monitors the navigation.

Eisenhower

after there was no more us fleet what do you think would happen next. these are just sailors trying to do their job in spite of their cia/mi6 controlled government

Martillo

“their job” ffs… these are unemployable thugs that couldn’t hold down a real job at the local dog pound.

Smack Daddy G

oh, martillo your words sting….nothing. they are employed, their jobs are real, and you know nothing except jealous bile. good luck with that.

Smack Daddy G

and yet we enter the straight and the gulf with impunity. iran monitors what it can do nothing about. remember that general whatsisname? struck by a lightening bolt, and nary a peep from iran.

it is unsafe for civilized peoples that amerikans exist

Ernst von Kierleis

do you mean to say that a medieval theocracy like iran is an example of civilization? you’ve never read voltaire… by the way, allah doesn’t exist, he’s an imaginary being invented by some crazy bearded man.

Smack Daddy G

with that perspective, i’d say you might qualify as a “civilized people”. problem is, we do exist and will continue to do so indefinitely. so there’s that.

the anti air missile or gatling gun ammo to shoot down the drone, cost 10 times more than the drone, and it would deplete finite ammo supplies on the ship. pesky things drones.

Zelenskii's Flaring Nostrils

trust me, the us military is not pinching pennies.

Boycott usa the world's bully

good point. then worried about running out of ammo before any real shooting starts. ships do not carry that much. and arms production in usa way too slow.

Smack Daddy G

enjoy telling yourself convenient fantasies.

Martillo

chinese credit is evaporating or hadn’t you heard?

Smack Daddy G

we have enough to spare. we just don’t have any regard for iranian equipment except as target practice.

CentralAsianStudies

also iran has hundreds of suicide aquatic drones which in large groups would be devastating in combination with airborn drones

Tdog

if that’s the case why is the states illegally occupying countries ?

John Wallace

hypocrisy.

Smack Daddy G

which countries do you refer to, tdog?

tiež sa tomu divým, že prečo nepotopili tú loď?

Laurenz

it is not the gulf of mexico….where everyone would understand the presence of us warships. it is the gulf of aden where us forces have nothing lost & should fuck off.

Smack Daddy G

of course, your deficient opinion on the matter carries no weight whatsoever. we will continue to operate towards open and safe international sea lanes. don’t like it? get a better navy.

WT Baker

“unprofessional”, “harassed”? are pentagon spokespersons idiots, yes or no?

attacking persian countries used to be a cinch. ho hum. i guess the only thing left for the strike group to do is struct about and look menacing and wait for the inevitable. they don’t have to sail around the persian gulf inviting trouble.

ussa knows that one false move and these obsolete rusty tubs will be heading to davy jones locker. let’s hope the fishes will be happy with their pentacon coral reefs if the anglozionazis are stupid enough to attract flocks of wonderful iranian “birds”. will ussa kill itself before the rotten khazar albatro$$ around its idiot golem neck poisons it? either way the jig is up and ussa ain’t half the thug it used to be.

TomB.

so an iranian drone can fly only a few miles above a whole uss carrier group without beeing detected, repelled or shot down? hahahahaaaaaaa. apart from that, what does the us fatboys think would happen if the active 30+ iranian subs, 800+ anti ship missile batteries and hundrets of missile and attack fastboats put them in the aim at once? this would be the biggest defeat of the us navy since pearl harbour.
