Warning Shots–Persian Gulf

UN Naval Institute reports on the most recent run in between US naval forces and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp.

You probably heard about this but may have missed the fact that Coast Guard Cutters were also there.

“Thunderbolt was operating with two Coast Guard cutters and a U.S. Army logistics vessel in a screen around the guided-missile cruiser USS Vella Gulf (CG-72) as part of a U.S.-only exercise when the formation was approached by the Iranian PC, the official said.”

Is it possible the video above was shot from a cutter?

  1. I think it was shot from the log vessel. I saw a tarp sun tent covering the aft deck. Didn’t look like a cutter.
