On the site of the attack on oil tankers discovered the wreckage of American "Hellfire" missiles


At the site of the attack on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, found wreckage of the American AGM-114 "Hellfire" missiles.

The United States was involved in the attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. It is reported that fragments of AGM-114 “Hellfire” missiles were found at the site of the attack on two oil tankers, which could well have caused serious damage to one of the tankers, resulting in the latter sank.

It is reported that at least three AGM-114 “Hellfire” missiles were launched for two oil tankers, which, by the way, are in service with the MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicle, which was seen in the area of ​​the tragedy. According to preliminary data, debris of one of the rockets was found on the surface of the water.

However, the photographs presented by social networks turned out to be inconclusive, since it was rather problematic to accurately identify fragments and correlate them with the components of the American rocket.

The United States, in turn, continues to argue that Iran should bear responsibility for the attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, since the same attack drone recorded the approach of an Iranian boat to the board of one of the blown-up tankers from which the soldiers of the Islamic Revolutionary Corps allegedly dismantle one from magnetic mines, which, by the way, could not inflict such critical damage on a seagoing ship.

For the sake of truth, she has options with OF heads. And the RBS-17 (AGM-114 modification with the Bofors warhead) is officially the RCC.

8 kg is the weight of the warhead, not the entire rocket. Produced many modifications, including and land mines. Learn mat.part .....

Yes, I agree that everything does not agree again: the photo indicates; 52 weight kg.
this is not 8 kg

AGM-114 Hellfire is an anti-tank missile. Warhead: cumulative. The weight of the warhead 8 kg. Flight range from 7,1 to 11 km. The main carriers of Hellfire missiles are helicopter gunships. Anyone who claims that they fired such a rocket on ships is a big visionary who has not studied the theme of his fantasies.

Thirty years ago, in my opinion already. Maybe the reason was stuck another but very similar. True tankers burned more. On the search engine you can find my little story about those events. "The Persian Gulf 1987 - 1988 year, the work of the tanker" Makhachkala ". And at the bottom there is a postscript -" Other works of Vladimir Venetsky. "Navy sailors, the Persian Gulf 1986 --- 1988 of the year also tell you about YouTube" Tanker War. "
