    Interesting, the Italian Navy have a presence in the Gulf of Guinea and intervened to prevent MV TORM ALEXANDER being boarded by pirates on 7th November. They launched their helo, who used bursts from their door mounted HMG to stitch a deterrent pattern across the pirates fast boat. The Italians are part of an EU Defence strategy in 6000nm of African coastal regions from Angola northwards. I think I saw Torm Alexander in Whitegate some time ago.
