984 - Pirates attack
Thursday, April 01, 2010
"The frigate USS Nicholas came under fire from a pirate vessel shortly after midnight in international waters west of the Seychelles, according to a U.S. military statement." From CNN

Just to be clear, a few guys like this:

In a boat like this:

Fired on this:

USS Nicholas
Previous member of DESRON SIX
Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate

453-foot hull
4,100 tons
Twin gas turbine 41,000 shp (31,000 kW)
Flank speed of mid 30 KTS

It was a lucky day for the pirates as most of them were simply captured, and not the more controversial "blown the fuck up."

    some of those idiots tried to attack what they thought was a commercial ship earlier this week, they didn't see the cannons on the ship that was actually a Dutch navy ship. They got pawned of course (the pirates, just in case that wasn't clear).
