Yemen USV threat ‘one of most scary scenarios’: US Navy commander

Tehran, IRNA – The commander of US Carrier Strike Group 2, Dwight D. Eisenhower, has acknowledged that one of the scariest scenarios is to face unmanned surface vessels of the Yemeni armed forces.

Rear Adm. Marc Miguez, commander of Carrier Strike Group Two, of which the Eisenhower is the flagship, said that it is “more of an unknown threat that we don’t have a lot of intel on, that could be extremely lethal — an unmanned surface vessel,” adding that the USV threat, which is still evolving, is worrisome.

“That’s one of the most scary scenarios, to have a bomb-laden, unmanned surface vessel that can go in pretty fast speeds. And if you’re not immediately on scene, it can get ugly extremely quick,” Miguez said.

The US commander also explained that the Ansarullah movement’s fighters “have ways of obviously controlling them just like they do the (unmanned aerial vehicles), and we have very little little fidelity as to all the stockpiles of what they have USV-wise.”

The United States dispatched the aircraft carrier Eisenhower from the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden near Yemen’s coast following the onset of Yemeni armed forces’ operations in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandab Strait to hit or stop ships linked to the Israeli regime with the aim of showing support for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and call for the end of war and siege of the strip.
