Iran May Be Pressed To Defend Against US-Israeli Unmanned Robotic Boats

Ynet news   By Udi Etzion  Posted Oct.28, 2012 (I have abbreviated the article)

Israeli unmanned robotic boats may be used by the US Military in a potential naval confrontation with Iran, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.

Recent reports revealed that the Iranian military had recently purchased numerous small vessels and manned each of them with Revolutionary Guard officers. The vessels are meant to either block or attack any American aircraft carrier making its way to the Strait of Hormuz.

In light of the possible danger, the US Navy is reportedly considering purchasing the “Protector,” a remote-controlled boat developed by Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

According to foreign reports, the Israel Navy has recently started using the robotic boats and has armed them with anti-armour “Spike” missiles.

On Wednesday, the US Navy fired missiles from several unmanned surface vehicles (USV) in tests which took place off the coast of Maryland. All six test-fires were reportedly accurate.

“The boats could be used for a number of applications, including harbour security, and in various defensive operations and scenarios, which are of primary concern for the Navy,” Mark Moses, the US Navy’s drone boats program manager, told Wired Magazine.

The “Protector” deal between Israel and the US is expected to amount to millions of dollars. However the Americans might not purchase the Israeli “Spike” missiles and opt for American-made missiles, such as the “Javelin” or the “Hellfire” instead.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
