Inspired by recent events and the Tanker Wars, Oil In The Water tells the story of an escalating conflict between the US and Iran that is sparked by Iran's attack of two oil tankers with Silkworm missiles as they transit the Strait of Hormuz.
Tensions are high between Iran and the United States as progress on a new nuclear weapons treaty falters and a series of unsolved bombings damage oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. Fly a US Navy F/A-18C Hornet as part of the USS George Washington carrier battle group in the Persian Gulf as conflict escalates to all out war in a series of confrontations inspired by the events of May and June 2019 and the Tanker Wars of 1987 and 1988.
