Iranian Aircraft Intrudes on USS Eisenhower, But Photo Shows What Was Right Behind It
An Iranian drone flew over the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier strike group last week as it was operating in the Persian Gulf.
But what the Iranians probably didn’t know is that the drone itself was being closely tracked by a Navy helicopter outfitted with a crew-served machine gun.
U.S. Central Command shared a photo Saturday shot from the helicopter showing the Iranian drone flying high above the fleet with the machine gun in the foreground.
