    Would like to know what kind of follow-up action is taken on the captured pirates or the country harboring/originating/promoting these pirates. Are they captured, imprisoned, tried and prosecuted, and if so how and where; or are they just let off. Also, is the originating country dealt with by an international coalition. After all there has to be some structured mechanism. This kind of policing can not be expected to go on in perpetuity. There is a cost to it. Or is UN failing and falling apart.

    They should send a word that Indian vessel n crews should be off limits, otherwise we will come back to get you.

    That way save on combustibles!

    Ooh, those pirates look scary… especially that old guy. Not.

    Is this even remotely an appropriate use of INS Delhi and her warfighting capabilities? This is a more task for the Coast Guard for heaven's sake. Wonder what the operation to grab a fishing boat and handful of AK-47s cost. Ridiculous.

    Somali Priates Kaa socha " Ki INS Delhi chup rehega, chori karne dega,Unhe dekh kar bhag jayega". Somali Pirates ayye the shikari banne khud shikar ho gaye"

    The MARCOS – Marine Commandos are one of the top five Special forces in the world. Unlike other special forces like the SEALS or the SGS or the SAS, MARCOS carry what is necessary to neutralize the enemy. This makes their moves and speed more precise. When their MP5 coughs its a assured kill. Such is their precision and training. BRAVO MARCOS. As your motto goes – YOU ALWAYS DARE AND ALWAYS WIN

    For the national business interests, Navy must keep patrolling in the Indian ocean and Chino sea.

    A yemen national?
    Hmmm, was he important by any chance?
    Like an Al-Qaida terrorist for example.
    These terrorists have major bases in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, and they commute between these three lawless countries and their vast unmonitored coastlines using small dhows and skiffs. Or its a drug smuggling op.

    Nice to see the Delhi let loose her CIWS guns on the offloaded fuel drums.

    @monkey-business 7:17 ,the problem is not with the Indian navy.Probably with your boyish or gay fantasies of muscle bound hunks a la some Hollywood flick.

    Let the real professionals do their job in real life,whilst you revel in your armchair fantasies.

    Monkey,
    The looks dont count here. MARCOS are not hulks or Rambos. What matters here is they are cut out for any mission that they are asked to do. Each marcos is a live ninja. So count on looks

    It's their grueling training that makes them loose all puppy fat and makes them look lean and mean. I have seen what one slap from these lean men can do to ordinary men. Where you have to walk miles in desert or marshes without food and water, you cannot afford to have a hefty body. A Stallone or Arnold won't last more than few days with their bulky body.
    Like your name Monkey Business your idea of a commando is what you see in movies which is diagonally opposite to real life commandos.

    G/day,

    The INS DEHLI looks great to bad about the uniforms for the poor cammandoes, when at sea I dont think green cammo is the way to go…Maybe they should of gone the black or blue cammo or something.

    And another thing symbolisim counts, When you are on station for the world to see you might want to pay attention to the little things. Rule one of force projection is PROJECT…Please give the guys fitted body armour / helmets, knee/arm pads, thigh side arms and all the rest, I am sure they are more then capable and they look good except for the moes, so give em the gear to look capable. When I see the Australian coast guard or navy board a foreign boat etc they go in serious.

    Now feel free to slam me as that is what we Indians love 10/4 out from down under.

    Us armchair generals have the liberty to fantasize what we want.The stuff or Geardo looks very stylish and glamorous. War and combat is hardly that.The enemy is neither overawed nor intimidated by how you look. Otherwise the Taliban in Afghanistan would have long surrendered to the Americans.Leave the fighting to the professionals.The MARCOS operate in a hot humid atmosphere,on a heaving and pitching dingy,they will have to jump on to the pirate boats.They have to be ready for any swift movement and at any time they may have to dive into or may be thrown into the sea in the course of action.You do not want kilos and kilos of extra equipment to weigh you down then.Light and swift movement is the key to such ops.Its a high visibility op,the destroyer has flagged down the pirate boat.What kind of Camo the guys wear has little role in such ops.Visibility and force intimidation is the key here. When stealth is required,the guys will operate accordingly.Do not forget that the Indian forces have been engaging sundry jehadis, mujaheddin long long before the west discovered the war on terror.

    Amazing read to see all the "armchair generals" together with their assuming heights of judgment. Wonder how would a real commando see these comments; would he be not amused!
