 Iran blockades the Straits with three major means: the US Army is most afraid of wolves.


Water: yacht wolves upgrade

As far as Irans military strength is concerned, the most effective way to block the Strait of Hormuz is naturally the wolf pack tactics of yachts. In 2008, Iran Navy and the Revolutionary Guard division of labor, by the Revolutionary Guard alone bear the Persian Gulf to the Strait of Hormuz defense, the United States Iraq ship cat and mouse type of dangerous contact is heard. The Revolutionary Guards were given the task of naval battle to defend the Strait of Hormuz by using light cavalry at sea and to carry out offshore defense and other tasks. From the map, the narrowest section of the Strait of Hormuz is only 48.3 kilometers, the average depth of 70 meters, the shallower 10.5 meters, and the deepest 219 meters, especially the V type, the main control nodes, Hormoz and Qeshm, all have the Revolutionary Guard ports or hidden berth, and are very suitable for small ships.

It is naturally not difficult to use armed forces against merchant ships passing through the Straits. The challenge for the Iranians is how to deal with the U.S. Navy escorting merchant ships. William Sami, a former researcher at the U.S. Naval Analysis Center, said the Iranians were aware that the odds of a direct confrontation with the U.S. military were small and therefore focused more on asymmetric warfare. In order to improve the operational flexibility of the fjord waters, the revolutionary guard navy is equipped with a large number of fast boats, which carry a lot of light weapons in collaboration, and can also be supported by the nearby land air force. Fariborz Hegsjonas, an expert at the Washington Near East Policy Institute, said the revolutionary guards have armed fast boats such as lightning, Fatah and Kadeer, carrying rockets, missiles, torpedo and other weapons. The American army is most worried about their wolf pack tactics, that is to use a large number of small boats to fill explosives or weapons. Give a short assault.

It is reported that in recent years, the advanced anti-ship missiles developed by Iran such as Nur and victory -1 have performed well in all kinds of conflicts. In the early morning of July 15, 2006, the Lebanese Hezbollah hit the Israeli navy Saar -5 frigate Harnett with a Nur missile; in October 1, 2016, the Nur missile, in the hands of the Yemen armed forces, rented the United Arab Emirates from the United States Navy HSV-2 Brown swallows high speed transport vessel. It is made of scrap iron.

Air: Missile saturation attack

Although the revolutionary guards took advantage of heaven and earth, they could only attack at the suicide distance. In response to this weakness, Iran has been working to enhance joint operational capabilities for many years and give full play to the sudden advantage of air strikes. It is hoped that before the reaction of American escort forces, a raid on oil tankers and merchant ships that lack self-defense ability and slow action. Foreign policy said that the Iran Air Forces American F-4 ghosts and F-14 male cat fighters, though few, have been greatly improved, can carry more than 200 kilometers of the Kadeer anti - ship missile to carry out a sudden attack.

The US strategic page website noted that Iran began to launch a new witness -129 UAVs to the Syria battlefield from 2016, which could carry 500 kilograms of ammunition, both ground control guidance and satellite data command. Once the eyewitness -129 UAV is used for colony attack, it still has a considerable threat.

In addition to aerial platforms, missiles and even long-range rockets deployed by the Iranian army and the Revolutionary Guard on the shore are also a threat that cannot be ignored around the Strait of Hormuz. Satellite photos show that the Revolutionary Guards in Bushehr, Abbas and other coastal provinces have deployed the Persian Gulf Hormuz -1/2 and other anti - ship ballistic missiles, which range between 150-300 kilometers, the weight of the warhead more than 500 kilograms, a great threat to sea targets. Not only that, the Revolutionary Guard Coast Artillery has set up the victory -5 four tube artillery, with a range of up to 60-75 kilometers. Under certain conditions, it can carry out saturated attacks on the sea and block the ships entering and out of the Straits.

Although the Persian Gulf is shallow and is not suitable for large submarines, the Iran Navy and the revolutionary guards have established a multi-layered submarine blockade from the Gulf of Oman to the Persian Gulf. The Iranian Navy will purchase three Kilo-class submarines from Russia and deploy them in the ports of Abbas and Chabahar outside the mouth of the Strait of Hormuz. The boat is quiet and has the ability to ambush warships, lay mines and disrupt traffic lines in deep waters. Since August 2008, Iran has launched the Kay class submarine production line with the help of North Korea. The submarines, which belong to coastal submarines, carry 533 millimeter torpedo and anchorage mines, especially the self developed super high speed torpedo in Iran, which can make use of the principle of vacuoles to carry out underwater high-speed propulsion and attack ships of 7000 meters for only 5 seconds. It is difficult for the enemy to defend against the left and right time. In addition, Iran has no fewer than 10 500-ton submarines for use by frogmen, which can penetrate and break down the ports of the Gulf Arab countries where US ships are moored.

Experts believe that the rich and huge blockade weapons in Iran may only cause temporary trouble for the United States Navy, and the blocked Strait of Hormuz may end up, but the United States knows that the influence of Iran is far beyond the Strait itself. It has many allies in the Middle East, and they all have a good military. The ability to combat the goals of the United States and its allies in the region can be achieved. The most prominent example is that the Yemeni Hussein armed forces, which have been attacked by coalition forces such as Saudi Arabia, are not only unflagging on the ground, but also good at guerrilla warfare at sea. In the past three years, the armed forces of the United Arab Emirates, with low cost combat weapons, such as mine, anti ship missile, UAV, armed fast yacht and self detonating yacht, have made many advanced naval vessels with rich experience in the battle of the United Arab Emirates Navy in the past three years. The U.S. National Interest website stresses that the terrain and electromagnetic environment in the Gulf region are very complex, and the U.S. Navy must be extremely careful. Since the end of the Iran war in 1988, Iran has focused its efforts on the development of asymmetric warfare capability. It can be said that if the United States and Iraq have turned over the Strait of Hormuz and the whole Middle East will be four, the world economic order will still be severely impacted even if the US Navy has opened the Strait.
