    Here they come again. This time, as the first, these are proper Iranian owned and operated tankers.

    A large tanker arrives. Unknown if its one of the three mentioned in my last post but they are supposed to be carrying petrol. I think the gas condensate is used to dilute the heavy Venezuelan crude so that it can be refined.

    Iranian VLCC supertanker carrying 2 million barrels of gas condensate suddenly pops up at the José Terminal, Venezuela. Most likely sailed all the way around southern Africa given her transponder was switched off. Name & IMO number has been painted over. Goes by new name: HONEY

    Looks like the new guy, who finally took over last month, may be more amenable to US blandishments.

    The second of a group of three Iranian tankers entered Venezuelan waters on Wednesday, carrying fuel for the gasoline-starved nation, which is struggling under a collapsing oil industry and U.S. sanctions that have crippled imports and exports.

    The Iran-flagged vessel Fortune reached Venezuela’s exclusive economic zone at 1:45 a.m. local time (0545 GMT), following the same route as the Forest, which docked at Venezuela’s El Palito port on Monday to discharge fuel, according to Refinitiv Eikon tanker tracking data and sources.

    The third vessel in the flotilla, the Faxon, is due to arrive later this week to complete a delivery of some 820,000 barrels of Iranian gasoline and other fuels to Venezuela’s state-run PDVSA, according to the data.

    The vessels have so far crossed the Atlantic Ocean without any disturbances, according to the data.

    Looks like the third has safely arrived now. Plus they have got a couple of their own refineries back into action, presumably 'upgraded' with Chinese or Iranian parts.

    If I were a betting man I would be putting money on the bigger tankers, used in one of the trips before, now being underway. Possibly timed to arrived to 'hide' under the US election.

    Dear god what a load of bullshit that website is... it automatically started playing a video about how the dictator Maduro has a tenuous hold on power in Venezuela and the election in 2018 was not accepted internationally... for fucks sake.... you fucking cowardly losers have the balls to preach to the world about democracy and peace.

    Faux news should come on nice soft sheets of three ply paper... they are delusional...

    And claims Iran is sending long range missiles to Venezuela will be used as a context to board ships going from Iran to Venezuela supplying products and supplies... I hope the US ships get sunk.

    Good job most of the ships are tankers, not a good place to transport missiles.

    Can they get a ballistic missile into a 747F assuming they have one?

    An-12/22/124s & 

    IL-76

    s can transport complete BMs &/ their stages, so B-747Fs can too.

    Whilst I accept that they could, with some ingenuity, load say an Iskander missile into a 747F my point is that it is not going to be a lot of use without its TEL which would definitely not get in. I can't see Iran risking an Il-76 to do the job, too big a risk of it accidentally falling into the middle of the Atlantic.

    Remember who floated the idea, a rabid US neocon war hawk who has so far been thwarted. He's just stirring it up as such people are well trained to do.

    Anyway I doubt Venezuela needs ballistic missiles, if it needs any missiles it is surely AShM which, from reports over the summer, Iran are now making a nice new one that I remember describing its TEL as being capable of being camouflaged as a seaside icecream van.

    Just to confirm that it is a 747F now in Caracus.
