Going to study how to drop a passenger liner missing from an eastern airline filled with explosive mixed with radioactive wastage.

Can't bring back the ship... Can't recover it... huge economical loss... no money to build another...

Ooooor...

They'll be able to dominate the seas with their fake stealth aircraft firing photo shopped duplicate missiles after launching from their copy carrier.
It'll be great fun!
I think Iran may just be building the most awesomest paintball experience evar!

Apparently from Iranian reports it is a film prop for a film dealing with the Iran Air Flight 655 shootdown incident in the 1980s.

If they say so... but wasn't that disaster involving an Aegis cruiser who made mistakes and assumptions, without considering the limitations of their equipment...with carriers not playing any part whatsoever?

I mean, carriers were in the region, but AFAIK not a factor in this incident?

Seems like a very expensive set for a ship not involved...just sayin. I think despite their claims they must have made it for some other reason.

Anthony Edwards died. Didn't you ever watch ER? OR Top Gun? How many times does this guy have to die to prove he's dead to you people!?

Sheesh.

The power of Iranian cinema must not be understated. After Hollywood, they're on the list...somewhere.
