    Default Royal Navy sends its mightiest ship to take on the Iranian show of force in the Gulf

    Oh Dear...

    Naval commanders believe the deployment of HMS Daring, a Type 45 destroyer, will send a significant message to the Iranians because of the firepower and world-beating technology carried by the warship.
    HMS Cornwall reprised ...hope they've fixed the glitches with Sea Viper
    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

    What happened to that super-virus that knocked out Iran's fissile material plants? Can't we send that?

    Is this a joke?

    Don't people remember how they humiliated our navy not-so-long-ago, by capturing some of our people with a speed boat and a few small arms, right from under the nose of our warship (which one would expect to have far superior firepower)? Did anyone ever explain how that was able to happen?

    It's been reverse engineered as we speak by Elite Iranian Cyber Army to attack multiple western targets like power stations that also use same vulnerable SCADA chips.

    Wouldn't a 'Danepak' cannon be more effective?
