I agree Jim. There is something more. Consider this.....
NECC is getting the RCB in it's inventory. The SWCM appears to be out. Hmmmm. Maybe SWCC will not be the Navy's premier Pirate Hunting Force after all. The RCB appears to be about the size of, shall we say, a SWCM? Good on the NECC! SHame on SPECWAR if they let this one go. If this in fact, is what has happened.
Leesea, I don't agree on this one. NSW and NECC is apples and oranges and two different Pots of money for funding for boats. and SWCC ..as much as I think they would be best at hunting down Pirates are Officially not involved in hunting pirates.
Nope.. there's a different story.. somewhere USSOCCOM canciled the project for some reason. maybe to fund another big ticket item.
JUst read an article on Military.com Concerning where the Navy is going with the Somali Pirate issue. Basically, the Navy will not commit long term so, they are exploring options. This could be a point that killed the CCM. As Seafox stated. If the CCM cost a buttload, why spend it on a mission that will be discontinued
