Watch Iran fire missile & overtake mock US aircraft carrier during Strait of Hormuz war games

Amid Iran-US tensions, Tehran’s troops have practiced overpowering an aircraft carrier – using a mock-up in lieu of the real thing – during a massive exercise. The fake warship was attacked from the air and circled by speedboats.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched the final leg of The Great Prophet joint exercise on Tuesday, deploying troops from several of its branches. The drill was held in the southern province of Hormozgan as well as the western part of the Strait of Hormuz.

One of the highlights of the exercise was the assault on a mock aircraft carrier, made to resemble the Nimitz-class ships of the US Navy, complete with models of warplanes parked on its deck. Iranian paramilitary forces fired a missile from an attack helicopter and rappelled a commando unit onto the ship, while speed boats were circling around it, footage of the drill released to Iranian media shows.
