WTF is he yelling, and why is he yelling at all doubt they could hear anything he's saying.

wonder why they didn't dive...

They can't submerge completely under the surface. They need to snokle to keep their engines going.

The US Navy uses the surface search radar on ASW USW Helos to hunt them.

Seems some fifty cal rounds bouncing off the conning tower might be more easily heard...

That soldier doesn’t look prepared for a dunk in the water, wearing boots and all that gear. Am I missing something?

Agreed, from what I can see.

If he had slipped, he'd be in a very, very position waiting for the recuse boat/raft.







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

The Navy has armor carriers with built-in self-inflating flotation systems, and lots of armor carriers are available that are releasable (yank a loop on the chest and the shoulder and side straps all come apart)... Presumably the Coast Guard would use something similar on the water.

I would suspect that if he's a Coastie, he's done this before and is quite prepared to do the task - the appearance of gear notwithstanding Smile

thats his job

I saw a program on these subs about 2 years ago - hunting for them in South America - most are just barely watertight compartments with a diesel engine - everything in one giant room - no engine room or watertight doors...so yelling and banging to be heard over the noise makes sense

A few dozen 7.62x51 API-T or 12.7x99mm HEAPI-T through the hatch, hull, and snorkel would make more sense.

ETA: Better still, use one of the EFPs the Iranians used against us in Iraq.

The problem is just because it looks like a modern day drug smuggling vessel does not mean it is, until you find the drugs on board.. So, shooting holes through a boat just because you assume it is carrying drugs is at least in my mind not a good idea. Ask Jimmy Buffet about this.

Guessing maybe as a legal CYA so if/when they shoot the thing full of holes and Pedro drowns they can show they attempted to stop him?

A very easy way of stopping a small boat or even a ship is to tow a floating polypro line accross their box. It will wrap in the prop, the heat from friction with cause the rope to melt together and seize the propeller.

Next the occupants will lift the hatch and the jig is up. I wonder why they do not try these simple methods.

I think one of things you have to factor into this kind of operation is the goal of the effort.

In a real war, material gets destroyed/sunk/demo'd all the time. Prosecution is completed on the battlefield, not in the courtroom.

But in an law enforcement setting, preservation of evidence is very important when it comes to prosecution, as is meeting the probable cause standard of evidence.

That means:

1) you can't just torpedo a contact.

2) Let's say the submarine is loaded with a 1/2 ton of cocaine. Do you want to try transferring all ~450 1 kilo bricks to a RIB by hand in choppy open water? Or maybe just leave the drug-running craft intact and either tow it or drive it to port?

The kind of evidence collected in this operation isn't going to just be used against the poor schmuck they caught driving the boat. These busts are part of the book that will get thrown at any jefe from the same organization.
