Here is some footage of the waterline damage to the rear ballast tank (water)of Norwegian tanker Andre Victoria off #Fujairah. Not how you would sink a tanker. I am thinking Captain Nemo needs to be brought in to consult on this sloppy work.
Sky news is also showing damage (?) of twenty year old Aframax tanker Al Marzoqah. Have to wonder why the two non-Arab ships have minor dings and the Arab ships look fine.
Those of you who blow stuff up for a living are going to go 'hmmmmm". First pic is clearly an impact hit with no heat, second is not even close to what an RPG or explosive device can do. A reminder of what an actual ship attack looks like: maritime-executive.com/blog/preparing…
Two ship are owned by Bihari formerly known as AK Albakri & Sons, Saudi family-owned company under contract to Saudi Oil. In 2018 they were dumping their old ships. Miraj IMO 9394741 was a bunker ship and Al Marzoqah IMO 9165762 the tanker. inter-review.com/en/magazine/50…
We pause to bring you this dance number from the crew lounge of the Al Marzoqah
I didn't realize how much James Mason as Captain Nemo looks like Captain Haddock in TinTin.
Back to de-bullshitting this story. Here is what a torpedo does to a ship. Next is shrapnel. Then what two dimwits with a Zodiac full of 500lbs of explosives can do. Special Bonus: Here is a manual just in case you actually get hit by a real naval weapon. maritime.org/doc/dc/part4.h…
