Dutch Marines retake ship- Video

What does it look like when military forces retake your ship from pirates?  Just take a look at the video to see what happens.  Yes, those are real muzzle flashes and gunfire.  Thankfully the crew of the Taipan was released unharmed.

According to reports, the Dutch warship Tromp arrived on the scene, attempted to negotiate with the pirates, and finally stormed the ship freeing the crew and arresting the pirates.

Amver ships transiting pirate infested waters can follow these best practices (link to pdf) to avoid capture by pirates.
