Marines Get Creative When Dealing With Iran

As sailors and Marines are sailing in more contested waters, the blue-green team is getting creative about how to defend amphibious assault ships from enemy small boats and drones.

Members of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit were photographed sailing through the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf this week with a Light Armored Vehicle on the flight deck…

…Maj. Gen. David Coffman, director of expeditionary warfare, said last year that Navy and Marine leaders were coming up with innovative ways to defend ships in contested areas. They’ve typically relied on aircraft, he said, but now they’re getting more creative to combat new threats.

“I can tell you I watched a MEU commander strap an LAV to the front of a flight deck because it had better sensors than the ship did to find small boats,” Coffman said during an event hosted by the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., last fall. “… The LAV guys will sit up there.” More

    from Iran…They can take out a football Field with one Bomb.

    (Lotsa Bomblets inside…) We used to hang those on F4’s . Manual

    said “If the Bomb breaks open during loading, do not attempt to

    pick up the Bomblets” I was like no shit…I’ll be in the next

    County….Still running !

  2. Good God, these ships should have state of the art sensors to detect even a floating goat pussy. Someone did mention Oblowjob’s Navy. Need to fix it.

  3. 7th century barbarians are no match for The United States of America’s military personnel – the greatest 21st century military in existence.

  4. Fill a cluster bomb full of pig parts. Drop it on a boat full of goat humping, shit for brains, Iranian rag heads. Get a video of them rootin through the blood and guts hoping to find what to them is a highly desirable part of a female hog. You’ll never see another boat load of those dumb shits again.

  5. We should introduce a whole shitload of scumbags to God and let him work it out. Amen!

  6. I have no idea why they don’t open fire as soon as those little attack boats are within range.

    There is no way anyone else could circle and harass a U.S. Navy ship and not get smoked.

    Never drop your guard.
