The Front Altair (which sank) is owned by a Norwegian company and carries a Marshall Islands flag. The Kokuka Courageous is owned by a Japanese country, and carries a Panamanian flag.

Iran has denied responsibility.

Freedom and Peace bombs will be on there way soon!

Really hope nothing happens to be honest this is something we really want to stay out of for a chance.

Who initially accused Iran?

Nobody. Iran denied responsibility pre-emptively.
as said above no one and iran are probably just getting their speak in before the finger pointing starts.....from the article,

This latest incident follows allegations from the US that Iran used mines to attack four oil tankers off the Emirati port of Fujairah last month.

Watch some ships being struck by a Torpedo on youtube. They make a real mess and cut the ship in half, so unlikely it will still be afloat.

Tanker hulls are not going to be as strong as a military ship either.

Why would Iran attack the Japanese ship while Shinzo is in Tehran for peace mediation?

Anyone producing anything other than a neutral position on this will be very transparent.

I'll give it two hours until this becomes an armchair general thread, filled with military geniuses and munitions experts.
