Really interesting reads and definitions. Great tactical articles, including such things as common sense piracy for beginners - skiffs, motherships and hijacked vessels and even reports from Basra on river and water-bourne operations and firefights (http://www.marsec4.com/2011/12/gunplay- ... t-al-arab/).
