The third attack came on July 26, 1986, when a Iraqi Exocet missile slammed into her No 1 port tank, causing a 4 ft hole when near Kharg Island on a ballast voyage from Sirri to Kharg. The fire was extinguished by the crew before the vessel proceeded southwards. However due to further engine problems, she then had to towed to Bahrain for repairs.

No way a 4 ft hole in 1P can cause engine problems. Probably a 5th casualty.
