The US Navy posted a photo on social media ridiculing Iran after it fired missiles on a mock-up of a US flattop on Wednesday.
how adorable that they made a fake aircraft carrier and then LARP'd an attack on it. apperantly they forgot that the real one will shoots back and not made of plywood. this is just like kids playing 'war' in the kiddie pool. Next week they will try to stop a rubber raft."We cannot speak to what Iran hopes to gain by building this mock-up, or what tactical value they would hope to gain by using such a mock-up in a training or exercise scenario," Cmdr. Rebecca Rebarich, a spokesperson in the US Navy's Fifth Fleet, which oversees operations in the Middle East, told The Associated Press.
"We remain confident in our naval forces' ability to defend themselves against any maritime threat," she added.
The drill appeared to be an attempted show of force against US ships, which Iran has previously built replicas of and fired missiles at.
