Subject: UK navy needs Missile Gun boats to aid sea patrols in Iraq
Rasputin    3/23/2007 12:13:17 PM
The Iranians seem to enjoy ambushing the Royal navy patrols inspecting vessels in Iraqi waters. It is getting less safe to send guys out in lone patrols to conduct inspection in motorized dingies, when the persians come rushing out to surround the patrols with many gun boats, strangely after the inspections has been conducted. If there are not enough Lynxes to cover the patrols, there needs to be some sort of mobile motorized gunboat support for the guys on patrols, not necessarily armed with sophisticated missiles, just enough guns to sink the Iranian revoultionary gunboats.

That's always the case. You need more small stuff for small wars and more big stuff for big wars. At the momment and for the
forseeable future it will predominately be small wars.
