I think I just found a new profession.................wonder how much those security jobs pay?
Somewhere there's a vid floating around that shows the russian navy dealing with some pirates that tried to overtake a russian ship. Pirates lying on the floor, bleeding......telling the russian officer they are fishermen...........the only words I could understand throughout the whole video, the russian commander looks at the pirate and says in his thick russian accent, "why do you lie to me?"....... it then shows pirates chained together and then chained to the rail on deck. Then it shows the russians on their own ship, about 2 miles away, and the pirate ship in the distance, then the pirates ship with all of them aboard being blown to smithereens..............excellent video. and way to take care of business.

The stupid part of this is, from what I remember from incidents a year or two ago, is that the ship owners DON'T want to PAY for the protection!

These security teams are a PERFECT solution to the problem - and I'll bet there are few, if ANY, ships that get pirated with them aboard.

SHAME on the owners for not wanting to protect there captain, crew and cargo from these thugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those air burst proximity fused shells are pretty insane. They explode right over the target.

Pure Awesomeness!! F**k those pirates. Many have been saying to arm the ships since the beginning of this BS. That will put an end to them in a heartbeat...

Great vid, thanks for posting

Regards,
I believe a lot of it is due to insurance regulations too. The companies that insure the ships and cargo don't want armed personnel aboard. Also, there are more than a few things that could go wrong with a firefight aboard a tanker, where you aren't even allowed to strike a match. That being said, I believe some sort of escort boat would probably provide the best solution. Something with plenty of speed and armament.

After they were shot, the pirates were found to be armed with only Skittles.
