They'd be met by locked steel hatches and dead engines.
Its simply not a goer.Timing is everything. If you're early you're on time, if you're on time you're late and if you're late you're fuc*ed.

At which point these somewhat well prepared desperados decide to call it a day when Barnacle Bill and the Three Stooges hove into view in their P2000...I'm Chuck Norris, and I approve these detainee handling techniques...

Apologies for the delayed response - where I am comms are tricky and they have learned from experience to apply on land what I am advocating to be applied on sea.

What's the point of the rest of the Armed Forces? So far as I'm aware the SAS/SBS aren't too strong in mechanised battlegroups, submarine driving and they can't even fly Typhoons.

The idea that conflict can be pain free and low cost is a dangerous one peddled by UKSF for some time now at huge cost to any wider military effort. The reality is that the Gambia and Dhofar don't matter and that, despite our much vaunted SF (and that of the Americans), we've lost in Iraq and Afghanistan, which do.

Who mentioned conflict being 'loss free'? We're not talking about conflict, we're talking about a passenger ferry being taken by terrorists. Not the kind of job you call your local TA Signal Squadron in for, no matter how many of them have really good APWT scores.
