Why the Somalian Pirates are very afraid of the navy forces??

The Pirates of Somalia are constantly marauding in the Gulf of Aden, hijacking dozens of commercial ships, kidnapping hundreds of terrified sailors and reaping millions in ransom money.

This out of control situations have prompted many countries to send out their Navy Forces to escort the commercial ships.

The pirates will run helter skelter at the very sight of a Navy Ship..

And why is that??

Because apart from precision missiles and torpedoes, most Navy forces in the world are equipped with the anti-ship Phalanx Close-In Weapon System or CIWS.

The weapon system consists of a 20 mm M61 Vulcan Gatling gun autocannon, capable of firing 4,500 rounds of 20 mm calibre ammunitions per minute or an astonishing 75 rounds per seconds!!!

A Phalanx CIWS is capable of shooting down a jet fighter!!!

That is why the pirates run for their life... Their AK47s or Rocket Propelled Grenades, RPGs are no match to the Phalanx CIWS.
