22 July 2018: The update is that this weekend most of the regular surface fleet of the Iranian Navy (IRIN) which consists of 3 frigates, and a host of the fast boats of the IRGC, departed from their births. One frigate stood off about 500 years in parallel of the USS Boxer ESG as the six ships entered into the (Arabian) Gulf via the Strait of Hormuz.
And as most have heard by now, the UK has its problems with Iran in the form of two of its merchant vessel having been taken over by IRGC heliborne commandos and fastboats. It appears that today's COBRA session of the UK govenment resulted in a determination to send a submarine, a destroyer, and some additional numbers of SBS commando to the Gulf. Things are heating up quickly.
More to come...
