Q-ships

hyberbasdfgMalaysia has them. Hat tip, LEX. The Maylasian Navy has converted a container ship, the Bunga Mas Lima to an armed anti-piracy vessel to go out and act as a decoy off Somalia. No information is given on the kind of armament, but considering the Somali pirates are using Boston Whalers with kind of ratty AK-47’s, a couple Ma Deuces would be sufficient, and a Bushmaster would probably be overkill. As a matter of historical interest for stopping pirates, I think the ship should be armed with long 32-pounders. Those’d work just fine. But I think they should bring back the old uniforms as well.

  1. And Yardarms as well. No need to take the priates to port. A short trip up the yardarm, then a visit to Davie Jones locker a few hours later.

  2. I second the yardarm notion. Long drop, short stop – nothing else needed.

  3. Agreed, any survivors, to the yardarm!
