Iran Flew Surveillance Drone Over US Aircraft Carrier Near Persian Gulf by dermmy(m): 6:09pm On Sep 23, 2020
Revolutionary Guard force flew drone over the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier which last week transited through the Strait of Hormuz

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard force has managed to fly a surveillance drone over the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier which last week transited through the Strait of Hormuz, an Iranian news agency has reported.

The semi-official Tasnim news agency, which is considered close to the paramilitary Guard, published images of the Nimitz, saying they were taken by Iranian-made drones, and showing fighter planes parked on the carrier’s deck.

The Nimitz, and several other warships, passed last Friday through the Strait of Hormuz, the world’s most important chokepoint for oil shipments, the US Navy had said, in what was described as a “scheduled maneuver”.

The US Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet, which oversees patrols across Mideast waters, declined to comment the Iranian report on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, the Guard took over a delivery of surveillance drones from Iran’s defense industries. At a ceremony marking the event, Gen Hossein Salami said the power of the Guard’s navy stems from its combination use of drones, helicopters, aircraft and its vessels.

Over the past decade, the Guard has occasionally published images on the US vessels in the Persian Gulf, where the force has been in charge of protecting Iran’s interests since 2007. In 2019, similar images were published, reportedly from a Guard drone that flew over the USS Dwight D Eisenhower and another American warship in the Persian Gulf.

Tensions between Iran and the US continue to simmer. The US withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major world powers and imposed new, tougher sanctions on Iran that sent the country’s economy into free fall.

“We are in war, we are in an economic war,” said Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s president, in a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, citing the US sanctions as the cause of the economic warfare.

Iran don't know the implication of what they are doing. They are starting a war that they can't control. They think thier nuclear weapons can override that of USA. They should better stop before they can't control it.

Iran was performing a reconaissance over a hostile enemy. wink You don't expect them to fold their arms while an enemy transit their backyard. They are passing a message telling the enemy you are within our range, you can see the drone targeting those aircrafts and flight deck. It's one of their Saegheh stealth drones even U.S declined to comment because they didn't know when the drone took that shot.

Did you read this

Over the past decade, the Guard has occasionally published images on the US vessels in the Persian Gulf.
That's implies they have been doing it, and if USA shake people will start to talk.

Also read this

“We are in war,

You see what am talking about, a war they can't control, if it should start Sir.

Re: Iran Flew Surveillance Drone Over US Aircraft Carrier Near Persian Gulf by Rgade: 9:19pm On Sep 23, 2020
A parallel report could have read....
"US carrier passes under Iranian drone".
Depending on how you see it.

I don't think anyone was committing foul play.
But why is Iran still mad that US cancelled their nuclear deal? Why not turn to Moscow or Beijing?
