Somalia seizes Pentagon pirate ship

MaerkMore is coming in about the pirate ship just seized by Somalia off their shores. See Pirate Maersk Inc.

The ocean surveillance ships (of Pirate Maersk Inc) USNS Effective, USNS Impeccable, USNS Loyal and USNS Victorious work directly with the Navy fleets to listen for undersea threats. The range instrumentation ships USNS Invincible and USNS Observation Island support the U.S. Air Force by serving as seaborne platforms for radar systems. As part of MSCs Special Mission Program, the noncombatant, government-owned ships will be crewed by U.S. commercial mariners.

Special mission ships provide operating platforms and services for unique U.S. military and federal government missions. These specialized services include oceanographic and hydrographic surveys, underwater surveillance, missile flight data collection and tracking, acoustic survey and submarine support.

In addition to performing special missions, MSC operates more than 110 noncombatant, civilian-crewed ships that replenish U.S. Navy ships, strategically preposition combat cargo at sea around the world and move 95 percent of military equipment and supplies used by deployed U.S. forces.
