This one goes back about a year when an intrepid group of Somali Pirates attempted to hijack an US Warship armed only with their trusty Ak’s and RPGs.

Look Ma! No Cannons!
So – other than the large white numeric designation on the bow which is a dead giveaway that this is a warship and not the “Betty Boop” tramp steamer out of Kalamazoo, one might mistake this American Warship for a harmless merchant ship from miles away.

The Tabar, An Indian Navy Frigate
Russian Missile Cruiser, Peter the Great

It’s hard to take smithereens to trial.
