Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Tweet Attack Plan Against U.S. Navy…

This plan will likely fail. They ships, boats and lanes will be destroyed before they get in strike range.
The IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps), the branch of Iran’s military whose role is to protect Tehran’s Islamic system, has published on Twitter an interesting drawing showing how they imagine an attack on an enemy warship entering the Persian Gulf.
The plan is to use several different weapons systems in a coordinated attack, opened by high speed boats to create a diversion.
According to Good Morning Iran blog, who translated the text accompanying the rendering, the plan assumes that Iranian high speed boats, equipped with missiles and mines — and disguising themselves as normal fishing boats — would carry out an initial attack against the enemy ship.
While facing the boats, the U.S. warship would be attacked by Iranian submarines, backed by IRIAF (Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force) warplanes, including some F-14 Tomcat jets with indigenous modifications (most likely providing some sort of air superiority in the vicinity), followed by ballistic missiles.
