IRAN BUILDS ITS OWN AIRCRAFT CARRIER FOR PROPAGANDA FILM

On the left, the Nimitz, on the right, the Iranian version
When American aerial surveillance spotted an aircraft carrier under construction at a port facility in Iran recently, they quickly noticed that it bore the same designation (CV 68) as the Nimitz. A closer look revealed that the Iranian vessel was a smaller copy of the original, and was little more than a mock-up, apparently built atop a barge.

Apparently, Iran intends to make a motion picture of an incident, which took place in the Gulf, several years ago, when a civilian airliner was mistaken for a possible missile, and was destroyed by American armed forces. Obviously, Iran intends to use the incident for propaganda purposes.
