Sea piracy has existed for more than a dozen years and at all stages of its development represented an immediate danger for all participants in international shipping: from shipwreckers to ordinary sailors. Modern pirates do not attack just for fun or for small profit on the first ship they come across. Often, these are well-organized raider seizures of specific ships in order to seize valuable cargo and hostages. This is preceded by special training: the choice of weapons, the collection of information about the cargo of the ship, the course to follow, the crew, etc.
How and when do pirates attack?
In terms of tactics, pirates do not invent complicated methods and prefer the same time-tested solutions. The list of pirate victims is mainly consists of tankers, dry-cargo ships and bulk goods carriers - slow-moving vessels with expensive cargo on board. The attack takes place at dusk or dawn, for greater stealth. The pirates attack on high-speed boats, gun fireing at the ship's bridge in order to prevent defensive maneuvers and possible resistance from the crew.
