Iran: Mock aircraft carrier sets sail
The mock-up of a Nimitz class United States aircraft carrier built by Iran left Bandar Abbas port in late July and was towed to a site in the Strait of Hormuz in preparation for the latest iteration of the Payambar-e Azam (Great Prophet) exercises, which began on 28 July. The two-thirds scale model was featured as a set-piece target in the finale of Great Prophet 14, involving the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) Navy and IRGC Aerospace.
