American Admiralty Books Safety & Privacy Policies EU VISITORS WARNING POSSIBLE COOKIES AHEADThe info graphic described above illustrates an attack on a U.S. Aircraft carrier task force in the Straits of Hormuz by Iranian IRG missiles. The technical data on each missile such as range and warhead power are shown when the reader clicks on the individual missile icons. The Middle East Research Service Institute (MEMRI) analysis indicates that the publication of this information is an attempt by Iran to threaten Western interests in the face of the economic sanctions the nation is presently subject to. It is hardly a strategic move to reveal tactics, and obviously the West already knows of the capability and would plan on dealing a death blow to all known locations housing the capability before entering the area with an aircraft carrier task force.
