Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. One of the traditional pasttimes of the RN was to stamp out piracy, however until international law is "clarified" so that any captured pirates can be properly dealt with rather than released, there seems little point in commiting scarce maritime resources to it.
  2. Helicopters seem to be the order of the day in these operations recently. Most f the video footage of the helicopters shows them hovering, pretty much stationary. I'd have thought that RPGs would be quite dangerous to a stationary helicopter, or are they just not that accurate?

    One of our own? whose flag? that's what matters. I hear little about the Panamanian or Liberian navies.
