seriously hope we really didn't use a missile on that. Hopefully they just fried it with microwaves.
Per Pentagon official speaking to the WSJ they said it was brought down by electronic jamming methods. It was 1000yds away from the ship

Iran has announced they will soon release footage from the drone showing the USS Boxer

Also report that a unarmed Iranian Navy Bell 212 helicopter flew close to the Boxer coming close to the ships deck before a US helicopter chased it away.

Also reports that multiple Iranian speed boats were in the area but maintained a safe distance but a larger ship did come within 500 yds of the Boxer when US helicopters flew between the Iranian Naval Ship and the Boxer to warn it away.

An Iranian Air Craft was also flying overhead which was identified as a Y-12 surveillance plane.

They should have destroyed them all

Iran State Run TV has confirmed they did take a British flagged oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz and accused it of violating international regulations. They accused the tanker of Shutting down its GPS, going through an exit route into the strait instead of the entrance and ignoring warnings to turn back and take the entrance route.

They dispute taking the 2nd tanker saying it was diverted temporarily and warned of environmental infractions but then allowed to continue on. However, Trump has stated in the Oval office the US believes both tankers were seized
