    I like the 'neutralization fire'. Makes me happy just thinking about all that jacketed lead flying at well over 900fps.

    Can't you just feel the goose-bumps?

    The support-and-combat vessel Patino, part of a European Union security mission, early Thursday "suffered an attack by a pirate skiff that led to the detention of six of the attackers," the Spanish defence ministry said.
    The detention should have taken place on the bottom. With about 20 pounds of lead in each body to weigh it down.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Maybe the pirates should pool their resources and pick up a copy of Jane's Fighting Ships

    Lets hope so, I would love to see a YouTube video of a Super Hornet strafing a pirate ship.

    You know.. truth be told, the reason we have so many pirate attacks is because these big ships are typically defenseless. They usually do not allow the crews to carry even small arms such as handguns. So they are at the mercy of these pirates and the pirates know it. Obviously they screwed up when they attacked this navy vessel. I admit it doesn't look as much like a naval vessel at first glance. Not nearly as obvious as something like this:

    So I'm sure they were quite surprised when they realized their mistake.
