#3 One hundred warships? A quick look at Haze Gray & Underway says no destroyers, a half dozen frigates and corvettes, a few KILO-class subs and bunch of missile boats along with the usual oilers and such.

While Iran may be better armed, I'd wager the San Diego Boat Show has more hulls.

#4 I just noticed the Haze Gray page was last updated in 2001, so the numbers may be a tad off, but I don't recall hearing about Iran embarking on any short of shipbuilding program. Corrections welcome.

#8 While Iran may be better armed, I'd wager the San Diego Boat Show has more hulls.

Maybe they're counting inflatables.
