      You are not right! You probably meant the Somali pirates (the Nigerian are in a different water area), and the ship was carrying out a combat mission to protect against "other pirates"!

        Around Syria, "pirates" gathered darkness .. Everyone is waiting for the Russians to make a mistake and rush to tear to pieces Syria. Now Shoigu with the “chief pirates” is sorting out a relationship, and they have piastres in their eyes.! he he

    It is necessary to be completely sick to deal with a warship. It is one thing to attack a civilian ship in the clear sea and quite another when such a ship accompanies a warship.
    But actually I was interested in this moment: did the pirates attack the ships that accompany the warships? Somehow about three years ago, information flashed that our warship had arrested a group of pirates.
    This already somehow became a habit: Nigerian pirates or in the area of ​​Malaysia or Singapore, but the first time when messages about pirates flickered was wild: the times of captain Morgan and Kidd were back, and why did they appear now?

      Well, we don’t have free frigates for the anti-piracy campaign, and the autonomy and seaworthiness of corvettes is not the same, so we have to chase large anti-submarines of this project around the world.

    The news has an author - press service of the Federation Council. Reported briefly and to the point.
    What questions, comrades: sea ships are sent to the seas, ocean ships to the ocean. Autonomy on atomic steamers depends on the size of food pantries, on the rest - on the capacity of fuel tanks. Can you provide a ship with a displacement of 2000 tons of fuel tank at least 500 tons? Hardly. Then do not be surprised that it is hard for a corvette to walk around the mainland.
    During the Second World War for the Northern Fleet in the USA, our crews received several sea hunters - a variant of the small anti-submarine ship of that time. Going home across the Atlantic was a really heroic epic.

    Does he have calibers in service? After the anti-piracy mission, I suppose to shoot hunting!

    It seems that the command could not come up with anything else to at least take something l / s. Or maybe the year is approaching and we need to write off material assets, money, fuel, etc.
