    We got a brief note from DS saying his ships bridge was damaged by an RPG, don't know how reliable but I do think that he should know what an RPG is since he and his brothers have worn out several versions of COD.

    Anyone know anything or how to find out information on things like this?

    Have you looked at the gcaptain website or the live piracy report website? Perhaps they will have some information.

    Hope your DS stays safe.

    I suggest contacting the shipping company. The port captain or fleet manager can answer any questions with regards to attacks on the vessel.
    Also your DS's ATR should have information with regards to the vessel. Please note I posted should have information doesn't mean he will or even know an attack happened but if he's good he should have info.


    You can also check on the NATO website.

    or IMO

    FYI there are enough of us in the industry that if you post the name of the ship we could inquire with friends to find out what happened.

    Disregard

    Apparently they were talking about the Panamanian ship, no attack to theirs, it was bad information. This spotty communication makes it tough to decifer sometimes. Sorry folks.
