ROYAL NAVY SENDS THIRD WARSHIP

The MoD today announced a further Type 23 frigate, HMS Kent will be deployed later in the year to replace the Duncan when it reaches the end of its mission.

And the tanker RFA Wave Knight will be sent to the region in August to perform duties delivering food, fuel, water and other essential supplies to Royal Navy and allied ships.

The MoD stressed that the new deployments were a “routine” part of the ongoing Operation Kipion and not a response to the recent escalation of tensions in the Gulf.

The HMS Kent underwent a £24million upgrade in 2012 including a revamp of her complex weapons systems.

Key upgrades include a new 4.5-inch (114mm) medium-range gun plus new 30mm close-range guns on her port and starboard sides.

She also had a new command system, target control radars and new towed array sonar fitted.

That kind of bluster is for internal consumption.

The iranian economy is in the shitter and they need an external bogeyman to blame it on. Of course, with the oil sanctions they are partly correct. :lol:

The Iran problem is about to be solved:

THROWING MONEY AT IT

Macron offers Iran bailout to stick with nuclear accord

7:50 a.m.

French President Emmanuel Macron is offering a $15 billion bailout to top Iranian negotiators who arrived in Paris on Monday in exchange for Tehran's commitment to returning to its landmark 2015 nuclear accord, The New York Times reported. The financial incentive is intended to compensate Iran for oil sales lost because of sanctions imposed by the U.S. since President Trump withdrew from the agreement last year.

The $15 billion letter of credit would give Iran the ability to receive hard currency while most of the income from its oil sales is frozen in banks. The money roughly equals half of the revenue Iran would get from oil sales in a year. Trump administration officials say the bailout would undermine Trump's effort to put "maximum pressure" on Iran, the Times said. Harold Maass

Who knew that throwing gobs of money at Iran would be the solution?

A shame France couldn't use that $15 billion for self-defense. Guess that's what we're for.

I think they don't have to front the whole thing. It's some kind of guarantee against frozen assets.

Even so, it undermines the US goal of forcing Iran to the table. Not something an "ally" would normally do. Complete chickenshit crap. I hope they lose their guarantee.
