A few days ago google news reported some source in Iran stating that

devices and one launch missile for each Nuclear device. This would be

such a navy exists. Non-military ships also.
Clearly the USA is able to counter severely any first strike by the
Iranian nation. Iran would be
Hope all nations involved are having some restraint right now.
