Supposedly they ran out of fuel. The CB 90 is a good boat. Whatever happened is most likely down to the sailors fucking something up, not the design of the boat.

That the Iranians just happened to encounter a couple of isolated US patrol boats in their waters, and that the Iranians just happened to be there with numerical superiority, that they could find no other recourse but to capture the crew and parade them in front of the cameras, and this all just happened to occur before the State of the Union, right before we were about to fork over 150 billion in cash to Iran, while the congress is bitching about that and other aspects of the nuclear deal. You're right, I don't believe anything about the official story.
>>
>>28535466

>Enough fuel to get there one way, not enough to get back.

>implying the operators of the vessels didn't know this.

My guess? These ships slipped in some sort of spooky OPERATORS to do OPERATIONS in Iran, something CIA maybe, and then the crews went "whoopsie doopsie, we are so dum XDXDXD Iran, please help us!"

Or it was some sort of prisoner exchange, or some sort of black project, maybe weapons sales, something.

There is no fucking way TWO ships "ran out of gas" in Iranian waters. One I can chalk up to operator error, two is unbelievable.

>>
>>28535547
Can you provide any evidence of your claims?
>>28537916
It's more than likely staged. However the Iranians seem to be playing it smart by recording the interview and letting them go. Let's them try to one-up us while avoiding the diplomatic nightmare of actually holding them for a long period of time (which they easily could have).

>>28535616
The funny thing is that the Iranians really didn't have anything to gain by this; they desperately want their money back and the sanctions dropped - that's why they were released so quickly.

Some faggot in the Revolutionary Guard probably thought it was a good time to puff their chest; the nuclear deal isn't popular with the hardliners, or maybe the Iranians wanted a different story than "shit mob burns Saudi embassy". Who knows; the former scenario scares me about the dysfunction in the Iranian government.

I've worked in the Swedish marines for a few years and I'm quite familiar with these boats. Any questions?
>>
>>28540577
I think there's two possibilities. Either this is a move by the Obama presidency to back his Iranian nuclear deal by saying Iran is docile and ready to be trusted, or our Navy is now led by dipshits (not the dick sucking for promotions kind but actual dipshits) and we somehow let two faulty boats with crap fuel pumps run near Iran and they ended up with guns in their face and they had no choice but to comply and agree until they're released.
I don't want to believe that a boat took a shit on its crew and nobody could tow them.

Any thoughts?
>>
Are Swedish CB90s the only one with the fixed dual .50s on the front?

Is the space being used for anything else with other nations?
>>
>>28540619

How many people would have been involved in this "move by Obama"?
Were the Ayatollahs in on it? Revolutionary Guards? US Navy? Ministry of Intelligence? State? CIA? The Chiefs? Were the detained Navy personnel in on it?
>>
>>28540647
Depends on. Swedish Amphibious Corps use 2 M2s in the front and one mounted above, behind the drivers compartment.
Home guard CB90 is afaik unarmed
>>
>>28540670
Actually, all of them could easily be. Only takes a couple of department heads to make the decision, and notify the other relevant department heads that something potentially big is going down. State Dept to organize it with the Ayatollahs.

The only guys that probably didn't know what was going on were the guys that got detained.

>>28535616
>That the Iranians just happened to encounter a couple of isolated US patrol boats in their waters, and that the Iranians just happened to be there with numerical superiority,
>what is radar
>what is enforcing the territorial sovereignty of your waters
We'd do the same thing if someone else's navy sailed into our waters without permission.
>>
>>28540619
Or, another logical answer is that Boat A had trouble, Boat B stuck around too long trying to help them, and then Boats C through Q surrounded them and wouldn't let them leave.
>>
They were dropping sonar packages and there was a sub about a klick near the isle of Farsi.

The idea was to distract the IRG while the sub tapped dedicated transmission lines to the naval base located at FARSI
>>
I don't know about that, but I wonder if there are any Vietnam-era PBRs for sale. It'd be fun to take one of those loaded up with beer and fishing gear out on a lake.

they've fired everything from m2s to 30mm autocannon, hellfire missiles to AA rockets, mortars, depth charges, mines and so on from it. AFAIK the two m2s in the front is so that the boats can support its own landings in some way. I also think that they're alone in doing so.

You can also fit it with NEMO and afaik it was tested with AMOS too.

The whole Iran-US thing reminds me a lot of star trek six where the federation and Klingon leaders are trying to work towards peace but hardliners on both sides are working together to start a war. It will be curious to see what happens when congress votes down the nuclear treaty and sanctions relief
>>
>>28545212
Actually both yours and >>28544680 are correct. Yours shows EEZ, his the Territorial Limit. They're not the same thing. In case of stopping an intruder the Territorial Limit is the relevant one.
>>
>>28545277
Sure except the only people who want peace here are treasonous satan worshippers, like obama & hillary.
Iran just wants to milk the US for as much as possible because they know the democrats are pussies.

I wouldn't be surprised to see them test a nuke in a year or two.

You mean the airliner that was filled with recently deceased Iranian citizens BEFORE it took off, and flown at our ship. 2 outcomes:

1. Their airliner hits our ship, US Navy out of a vessel

2. We shoot it down, we look like the baddies, they play the victim

Either way a win win, option 2 was the outcome.
