How the SEALs Took Down the Pirates

Now the story can be told of just how SEAL team snipers took out 3 Somali pirates. When I first heard about this my head was spinning. Consider the variables:
  • Firing from a moving platform
  • At a moving target
  • Headshots required
  • Three separate targets
  • All target must be eliminated simultaneously in order to save the hostage.

Now, to be fair, I didn't know about the tow cable or the range but even still, this was the finest piece of marksmanship in the modern era since the Canadians took out a Taliban mortar team from a mile and half away with a McMillan 50 Cal.

BZ SEAL team X. Just goes to show what years and years of training and regular combat can accomplish.
