Washington: Iran is prepared to `destroy the US Navy` in any upcoming confrontation, a senior Iranian naval commander has said.
Iranian Naval Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, a member of Iran`s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said he is prepared to order suicide attacks, drone strikes, and missile technology against the US Navy.
According to the Washington Times, Fadavi added that Iran is constantly training and preparing for a clash with the United States.
According to Fadavi`s remarks provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Iran `compensates for its technological inferiority to the United States with a strategy of asymmetrical warfare, including suicide attacks and the use of speedboat and its missile capability`.
Fadavi`s military threats come amid a massive military buildup by Iran, which claims to have duplicated and armed a downed US Drone.
Iran is also claimed to have developed advanced ballistic missiles that could be capable of carrying a nuclear payload.
