JERUSALEM – An Iranian admiral said this week that his forces are capable of sinking a U.S. aircraft carrier in less than a minute and destroying any U.S. naval force it confronts.

Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy, said that the realistic looking mockup of a Nimitz class carrier seen in recent satellite images was part of an intensive training program wherein his forces attack replicas of American naval vessels they are likely to encounter. In an interview with the Iranian news agency, Fars, he said his forces could sink an American carrier “in less than a minute”.
