Analysis of the C-802 attack

Austin Bay hosts an analysis of the C-802 attack on the INS Hanit. Of particular note is what the analysts say near the end:
Given the secret presence of the C802 in the first instance, we both think it is reasonable to assume that there were Iranian signals intelligence and fire control people telling the truck mounted launchers all of this so as to set up the launch with the maximum chance of success.
I'd suggest people re-read my piece at Strategypage on the implications of C-802s being passed to Hezbollah. Waiting is not an option.
