All ships have a bridge phone and masters keep in touch if anything happens. There are lot of ships in the area waiting to dock. Lets see how the media handles this. Independent inquiries or publish unsubstantiated press releases? Thome: corporate.communications@thome.com.sg

Fake news. One showing the AFRICOM Swift ship purchased by the UAE that was hit by Houthis with an Exocet years ago. The tanker explosion is a 2018 story. But again, note the US news media pickup without fact checking.

The "Aft Peak Tank" is typically a ballast tank not a storage tank for oil. So if someone was to put a "hole" in that tank it would not cause a spill, sinking or fire damage but as an engineered attack to excite the media would be furthest away from the Bridge and crew.

Here is a real attack on a tanker. I was on this ship in Libya after one of Haftar's jets tried to kill the crew and sink it. One missile hit, one missed.

So 6 tankers damaged with "holes". No sinking, no loss of life or even fire? Dozens of ships with line of sight view and one with confirmed damage in ballast tank by Norway operator. Synced PR releases from KSA and UAE for Monday US churn. No actual pics yet? Let's do this.

No one
This is how the real thing looked
NATO and Soviet naval forces in the Gulf faced new and old challenges from a variety of Iranian and Iraqi threats.
