No, they were in Riverine patrol boats, which are not RHIB, are hard bodied and quite a bit larger...but boats none-the -ess and not a ship.I remember this incident weren't they in RHIB boats or something like that really small craft for that long of a trip not the Cyclone class I may be mistaken certainly wasn't under the current administration it just another episode of the previous administration appeasement policy towards Iran
Much smaller than a Cyclone...but can be heavily armed with .50 cals, grenade launchers, and MADPADS. These vessels were simply being tranited fomr one spot to another along the west side of the Gulf and the Ianians came out and took them.
The US Navy should have responded heavily and simply began sinking the entirety of the Iranian Navy.
But the Obama administration was incapable of defending American interests.
Reagan would have responded a lot differently.
How do I know?
I saw him do it in the 1980s when the Iranians began acting this way.
Look up and read about Operation Preying Mantis.
