An Iranian unmannedt attack boat laden with explosives was found waiting in the path of HMS Duncan that was sent to the Gulf over rising tensions to protect shipping.
Saudi forces spotted the remote controlled blowfish after Iran said Britain is “playing a dangerous game” and warned the UK to “leave the area.”
The boat has a steering wheel but It is believed that the bomb boat can be operated remotely from up to four miles away and was discovered in the Red Sea. How it got there with an outboard motor is another matter…
Although it is lying rather low in the water is will nevertheless be an easy target for a sophisticated radar system also because of the telltale wake. In my opinion it is a rather crude and low tech attack weapon. I wonder whether the Iranians have subs because that would be a real dangerous attack weapon. Also very dangerous are mines but they could sink their own ships as well. MTB’s are of no use as they easily spotted and taken out by missiles.
