How much is it to modify a Lagoon 440 for .50cal BMG mounts?

Shotguns would also make a good close-in weapon system.

Two years with remission for good behavior!

Don't go down that path. It has all been discussed before and you will find lots about it in the CL archives.

German navy captures pirates off Somalia

3 Mar 2009 15:57 CET

The German navy thwarted an attack on cargo ship off the coast of Somalia on Tuesday and capture nine pirates, according to military officials in Berlin.

The German military reported that the frigate Rheinland-Pfalz responded to a distress call at 07:12 from the MV Courier sailing in the Gulf of Aden.

The vessel, which belongs to the Hamburg shipping company GebrŁder Winter and flies the flag of Antigua and Barbuda, said it was under attack by pirates using rocket propelled grenades and small arms.

The German naval warship, some 50 nautical miles away at the time of the attack, deployed a helicopter to the scene. Along with an American helicopter from the USS Monterey, the Germans were able to deter the attack by firing warning shots.

Naval forces later boarded the hostile vessel and arrested nine men. Itís the first time that the German navy has captured pirates since joining the international anti-piracy mission off the coast of Somalia.
