What load out did the Navy Seals use in the Captain Phillips rescue. Interested to know what rifles / gear was used.

WAT?

They halo'd in. Kinda eliminates roads, tarmac, whatever. I'm no sqeal lover, but I'm pretty damn sure that the fucking cooks on that aircraft carrier didn't rescue Phillips.

I got the skinny from an Ex 13th Armored Div. 2nd platoon Delta Seal Force artillery sniper spec-op tunnel rat out of Da Nang. Says some bad shit went down, he told me never get off the boat, never get off the fucking boat. The shits about to come down!

Says, they used flying fucking tigers man! fuckin' tigers... Try and dig a fox hole on a fucking boat man! They laid snake and nape, bad shit! all the positions were over ran, they had to call B52 strikes on their own positions. Bad shit.....

He remembered being on the 60, then ran out of ammo, he grabbed a dead gooks AK, same shit! When he lost his .45, he grabbed his dead friends trusty KBAR...Knifed every swinging dick gook fucker as they jumped in his foxhole, then ran out of blades....bad shit.

Says, the shit was so bad, he couldn't even talk about it....much less what gear they were runnin...just knows all his buddies were laying face down in the mud. he saw a sniper with a scope on his flame thrower, could a been the swinging dick that made the shot....name was SGT Halfcock or some shit...keep this on the down low, nobody is supposed to know this shit.

I do not think they would use the 5.56 round in that situation. They probably had the 416's when they boarded the vessel, but I doubt they used that platform for the "sniper" shots. I would say the MK11 in 7.62 would be the better choice.

Captain Phillips should be renamed:

"Movie in which Tom Hanks, demonstrating as much acting talent as a piece of cardboard, portrays a character that has a bad East Coast accent and the director films the back of his head mostly while a bland story is told of a shipping company that believed in gun-control and it's crew that cowered in fear from four people with guns they could've easily taken care of had they simply been armed or even slightly courageous men, but instead hundreds of thousands of dollars were wasted by sending Navy SEALs halfway around the world to save their dumbasses."

I guess it's hard to fit a title like that on a movie theater marquee?

The SEALs probably used all manner of really neat gadgets and guns but I walked out of the theater by then because it was such an awful waste of my time.

My understanding was that they were Knights 7.62 rifles. Maybe not the M110, probably SR25s (?)

I seem to recall that they didn't use crazy-high magnification optics, either. Aimpoints or maybe irons? Can't recall where I read that.

They were being towed behind the carrier. I doubt they were very far away.

The ports of nations where ships dock are sovereign nations with their own laws regarding firearms that the shipping companies can't control. The US Navy had to act not for the shipping company or the crew, but to protect the larger US interest in maintaining safe water ways for international commerce. As you probably know the USA is the world's leading exporter and importer heavily dependent on global trade.

Quotes are usually cited. The SEALs who told the story for the discovery channel stated they used SR25s.
