Marines Aren’t Taking Any Chances with Iranian Boats, Strap Armored Vehicle to Ship Deck

 A shot of the LAV strapped to the deck of the USS Boxer.

Iranian fast attack crafts attempting to confront the USS Boxer are in for a rude surprise. Instead of finding easy prey, they’re more likely to see a light armored vehicle strapped to the deck with a marine behind the trigger.

The creative defense solution comes as heightened tensions in the Strait of Hormuz have the world on edge.

  1. Pity we still don't have some of those old WWII Destroyers and Destroyer escorts. We could saturate the gulf with fire power capable of 35 knots with between 6 and 3 5"38Cal. Rifles that could take out small craft at 3 miles. Upgraded with radar guidance probably further.
