 File under: Govt of Iran 

Not able to watch the video.
So the Iranians took this Brit flagged and escorted vessel, anyway?

#2 Yupp. There's a lot of polite military verse-speak to-and-fro, and the Brit vessel looks on as the Steno Impero is boarded.

Apparently filmed on the day of the July 19 incident from above the British warship Foxtrot 236 that was in the vicinity of the U.K.-flagged Stena Impero, showing the British navy unable to prevent Iran's seizure of the ship in the critical waterway.

I wonder what would have happened if they hadn't capitulated, instead warned that they would fire in the direction of the IRGC boat if they didn't back off ?

#3 Dron66046, F236 (HMS Montrose) is equipped with a 4.5 inch gun with a range of 15 miles. They should have put a warning shot through the Iranian boat. Amidship.

#4 The video is by Iran,thus suspect. I suspect that this video was made after the fact to show "how powerful" the Iran cowards are. If this was real, the Brittish warship would have done something about it.

My take is that this is a a fake video made for propaganda purposes.

#5 I thought it was done by helicopter.

#6 fake video made for propaganda purposes

Could be, like the earlier bullshit about how they spoofed GPS and port signals to lure it away with superior Iranian hacking skills.

#7 Iranians are taking Brit ships with no reprisal now - what world am I living in?
