Iran in U.S. maritime borders: A question

Looking at this bit of news,
Iranian warships sent to U.S. maritime borders for first time (emphasis added)

The commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying Saturday that the vessels have already begun the journey to the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa.

Iranian officials said last month that the fleet consisted of a destroyer and a logistic helicopter carrierwhich will be on a three-month mission.

I have a question or two:
1. “A destroyer and a logistic helicopter carrier” making the long haul from Iran around South Africa and up the Atlantic. need refueling. They don’t come in nuclear-powered batteries, do they?

2. Where are they refueling? Argentina? Brazil? Venezuela? Cuba?

3. Is the US going to exert any pressure on any country aiding Iran?

  1. Anthony Says:

    The last time the Persians sent a fleet west it was much larger.

    The “logistical helicopter carrier” is a fancy name for a cargo ship with a helipad.
