Once again, the Iranian military doesn't understand that 'missile lock' is not the
same as the 'target confirmed' firing protocol.

BBC News
Nineteen sailors have been killed and 15 others injured in an accident involving
Iranian naval vessels in the Gulf of Oman, Iran's navy has said.
Iranian media reported that the support ship Konarak was hit by a new anti-ship
missile being tested by the frigate Jamaran during an exercise on Sunday.
The Konarak had been putting targets out in the water and remained too close to
one, according to the reports.
The missile used was reportedly an Iranian Noor, a reverse engineered Chinese C-802.

Horrific.
Still, it bodes well for the rest of us, should they successfully develop nuclear weapons.

Did we spoof their missile's guidance system?

Agreed.


Did we spoof their missile's guidance system?

It would be both shameful and despicable, if we had.

As much as some might like to believe we did, I hope to hell we didn't, and for the time being think it's stupid to think so.

It was a “friendly fire but with nukes” comment.
Gallows humor, really — in poor taste.
