I remember being intercepted by the local plod a couple of years ago whilst closing on a US heli carrier at Cobh. They were glad they caught us as the carrier could and would have opened fire on us. We replied that they could not do that on Irish territory to which plod replied " Do you REALLY want to argue with them?" so much for sovereignty eh.

Sure enough the deck guns track you.....kind of makes you feel uneasy

The most famous being General "Stonewall" Jackson of the US confederate army in the civil war. Killed by his own men by mistake on the way back from a recce having sussed out a plan that may have won his side the war. The only other bloke with him who knew the plan was killed too.

I guess hidden under all that armour plating and weaponry is a cosy little nuclear reactor surrounded by a few nuclear warheads.

No wonder they're a bit twitchy. Maybe they're sulking that theres no berth big enough for their little boat.

Whats the top speed for that sucker and could I outrun em?
