Knock, knock...


Who's there?

KA...

KA who?

KA-BOOM!

What do you get when you lure a SAG (Surface Action Group) out away from the coast and then let them run back into the bow of a Type 209 submarine?

Burning wreckage.

Unlike my colleagues on the Army, there is no advantage to reserve forces in a naval engagement. Warships perform best when they can concentrate their fires and overwhelm any maneuver, armour or defenses of their opponent.

Or take them by surprise from below the sea.

I would not want to contend with any of the Chilean submarine forces. They are sharp.

I know those packaged alfajores. Havannas, right? Delicious, but no comparison to Kiki's. She'll be thrilled you remembered! Stay safe. Hurry home.
