  1. It would be interesting to know what kind of military liasons the IRIN/IRGCN has stationed on oil platforms in the Persian Gulf.

    I know during the Iran-Iraq war they were essential in the later stages during the Tanker War. Drilling platforms served as way-stations for small-boats which otherwise wouldn't have the endurance for long patrols, operated as SIGINT listening stations for observing the passage of tankers as well as their warship escorts. They would also host helicopters and other combatants.

    Today I suspect there are dedicated listening/early warning posts located on these rigs in some form or another. I bet they're networked with other such posts around the Gulf and possibly have sophisticated ESM suites for detecting and tracking targets.
