Pic of Mother Ship towing 2 Skiffs


Pirate mother ship Prantalay 14 towing skiffs prior to hoisting them on board. The skiffs were used by the pirates to chase merchant vessel CMA CGM Verdi off Lakshadweep on Friday, but with a Coast Guard Dornier challenging them, they were forced to retreat.

Excerpt "Whilst the Coast Guard and Navy Dorniers tracked Prantalay, the pirate ship, Indian Naval Ship Cankarso, a recently commissioned Water Jet Fast Attack Craft was directed to intercept and investigate the ship.

The Indian Navy and the Coast Guard in a joint operation on Friday, destroyed a pirate mother ship, Prantalay, off the Lakshadweep group of islands and arrested 15 pirates.

As reported by The Hindu on Friday, a Coast Guard Dornier aircraft on Friday shooed away two skiffs that were closing in on MV CMA CGM Verdi, a Bahama Flagged container ship, about 300 nautical miles west of Lakshadweep. “Seeing the aircraft, the skiffs immediately aborted their piracy attempt and dashed towards the mother vessel Prantalay, which hurriedly hoisted the two skiffs onboard and set a westerly course to escape from the area. This action cleared all doubts of Prantalay being used by pirates as a mother vessel. Whilst the Coast Guard and Navy Dorniers continuously tracked Prantalay, Indian Naval Ship Cankarso (a recently commissioned Water Jet Fast Attack Craft) which was already deployed in the area for anti-piracy patrol, was directed to intercept and investigate Prantalay,” said the Navy.

which is a stark contrast to "merchant ship sinks indian navy vessel" from yesterday. the indian navy's record seems to be...

...uneven.

That is how pirates should be dealt with.

Is that a picture of the Indian Naval ship? No wonder they sink in the harbor.

No, the ship should have been destroyed with all hands on board. survivors in the water either left to float or shot. That's how the pirates should have been dealt with. No pissing money away on worthless trials.

This.


The Indian ship had 1x 30mm, and 2x .50s.

I guess that puts my complaining about "too small of cannons" on our light craft in perspective
