Iran to send warships to the Atlantic, closer to U.S. waters
 

LONDON (Reuters) - The Iranian navy will send warships to deploy in the Atlantic from March, a top commander said on Friday, as the Islamic Republic seeks to increase the operating range of its naval forces to the backyard of the United States, its arch foe.

Iran sees the presence of U.S. aircraft carriers in the Gulf as a security concern and its navy has sought to counter that by showing the flag near American waters.

A flotilla will leave for the Atlantic early in the Iranian new year, starting from March, Iran’s naval deputy commander said.

I served aboard an aircraft carrier and I think the captain's gig was larger than most Iranian "warships." :whistle:
