  • How safe our the Irish Naval Vessels

    how combat worthy are our Naval Vessels? or are the Melara's just for show? as far as im led to believe there is not alot of armoured plating on the ship and the smallest amount of damage taken whilist under fire cud cause a serious threat!

    im asking this in relation to the recent trip of the L.e Niamhs mission into a warzone (liberia) and the possibility of a terrorist attack! also how safe are the ships to seizure? when a ship is tied up in galway dublin etc would there be enough people on board to resist a possible boarding of terrorists and if they new what they were doing would they be able to take one to sea in a short period of time! for example 15 - 20 minutes.

    by the way im not trying to rob a naval vessel and im not a member of al queada..........

    Security or vulnerability of naval vessels is not a suitable topic for discussion.

    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.
