#1 That fits in with their mock stealth fighter and mock blue water destroyer.

#2 Will they fail the SINKEX again? Plywood mockups of US aircraft carriers are so hard to kill with modern ordnance!

#3 I think we have a hull they can use.

#4 We should sink it for them.

#5 Iran moves a mock 650ft US aircraft carrier into the Strait of Hormuz that it 'plans to sink' in navy drills - days after American F-15 buzzed an Iranian airliner

#6 How about a mock fire or three at key Iranian nuke facilities?

Oh, wait...

#8 See, orbital death rays have so many uses. We should have used one to burn this thing 1 day after it was finished.

#9 The Navy tried to SB.
They hit the wrong flattop.
Targeting issues.

#10 Doesn't show any hits...just launches.

#11 Iranian troops also fired anti-aircraft batteries at a drone target in the exercise

Was it shaped like a Boeing 737-800?

#12 Note that the "Nimitz" isn't moving in those photos. Nor are there defending ships or aircraft. There's no one firing back. Iran may be in for a HUGE surprise if they actually attacked any of our nuclear carriers.
