Badass. I can't really tell but it doesn't appear his gear includes a life jacket. Dude was committed to get on/stay on that sub, I guess jump back off if it dived

>>42014608

It is a semi-submersible. They only have one or a couple patterns. Some ex-american and russian sub engineers devised the pattern and tooling over a decade ago and the narcos have been producing them en masse ever since. They're made of fiberglass and use cheap engines, and are effectively (in practice, literally) disposable.

Most homemade Colombian drug subs aren't safe to really submerge past a few meters. They might run submerged in high risk areas but usually they will just run the surface like this, submerged or not they still have a very small radar profile.

Also I don't know what kind of ASW the average coast guard cutter has but I imagine that it would have turned out much worse for them if they tried to dive and run.

He is almost certainly wearing a PFD. It's really small and out of the way when uninflated, looks like just another part of his harness, but it has a pressure gauge and a co2 canister. It can get wet and be fine but if the pressure gauge activates (at around a depth of 5 feet underwater) the co2 will trigger and the whole vest will explode out into a full lifejacket. We used them on commercial ships because they are a lot smaller than regular life jackets and completely out of the way unless you need them. Sometimes the sensor or the co2 will malfunction or the pull tab will get stuck on some part of the ship though and the vest will blow up accidentally. It makes pretty good entertainment after 2 weeks at sea when your buddy just randomly blows up next to you.

The Sinaloa Cartel oversees a logistical network that is as sophisticated, in some ways, as that of Amazon or U.P.S. — doubly sophisticated, when you think about it, because traffickers must move both their product and their profits in secret, and constantly maneuver to avoid death or arrest.

This.

At visual range they cannot hide but beyond that they're pretty sneaky.

>>42018156

They lose these subs all the time, it's not worth it to get a huge one. Cheap, numerous and fast is the way to go, manned by some poor desperate people preferably.

Story?

>>42014528
So that shit happened almost a month ago, why don't they release news on what kind of sub and contraband it was? maybe it was just the private submarine of some dude from cuba.

Where did it happen? How close to the shore? What was inside the submarine? How did they even get it, why was it surfaced? And what was inside?

>>42018521
The only article I've read only said what's happening in the video.
>>
>>42018513
It's a narco semi submersible boat running from anywhere in central america to the US. They're not going to release details of when/where because that's opsec. Cocaine was inside the sub. The CG receives intel from a million agencies and foreign countries telling them where/when narco boats departed from and are heading.
>>
>>42017901
He's some bottom rung cartel kid they pulled off a farm somewhere and they told his ass to get in the sub at gunpoint. He's probably relieved.
>>
>>42018341
But the Coast Guard makes some serious props for intercepting 8000 lbs of cocaine.

I'm honestly not impressed. They're not Spetsnaz, but they're more competent than your standard cop.

>Pirates of the Caribbean theme plays in the backround

It's cool that the coasties actually managed to capture this semi submersible. The standard operating procedure for these narcos is to scuttle the sub and surrender to the coast gaurd when they start to close in. Destroys the evidence that way. I wonder why this procedure wasn't followed, did the coasties sneak up on them or did they think that their motorized bathtub could outrun the coast gaurd?

Either way, neato.

So if these narco people transport 18 fucking tons of coke with these things, they must have a shitload of money. Why not spend more money on their subs? Why not make a sub that can actually dive? With a radar, so you know when there's coasties coming? I've heard this fucking thing wasn't even a sub, it was just a low profile boat
>>
>>42018156
The Russians ships were all slated to be sold for scrap, it only existed on paper at that point.

>>42018451

Coke is cheap to produce in third world shitholes. Good submarines are expensive no matter where you are.

How the heck do they find these things? Do we have some kind of coastal sonar/listening system that tracks boats with irregular paths or behavior?

>>42019366
do you have any idea how much 18 tons of cocaine are worth? if they sell those amounts, they can afford a better submarine.

>>
>>42019381
And then that better submarine would be scuttled at the end of the run just like these are.
They make these because THEY CAN MASS PRODUCE THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF A FUCKING JUNGLE and sink them off the US coast without batting more than an eye or two when they're done making their run.
They dont have one or two of these, they've been making them continuously for over a decade.

I have another one, what happens to the poor guys in the boat? I imagine there's one or two cartel enforcers on board to make sure the boat gets where it needs to be, but the captain and his crew are probably some poor central american fishers. Do they spend 30 years in prison in the US? Do they get deported to wherever they're from?
>>
>>42019766
No, they don't put anyone else on the boat that isn't completely expendable. If they mysteriously "lose" the cargo the cartels will just kill people in their family. So that cargo gets mysteriously lost. They'll likely spend a few years up in the US, before being sent back home. Inwhich they'll get picked up by the Cartel again and put in another boat.

>>42019766
They get arrested and jailed (in America) for drug smuggling for 20-30 years and then shipped back to their own country. These guys are usually just farmers or otherwise pawns. They won't dare steal the boat or drugs because their families will get murdered. Plus they wouldn't even know where to go and how to sell it.

Yeah, on my ship though if you caught intentionally detonating a PFD then they made you wear one of those giant orange life jackets for the rest of the voyage, which fucking sucked. So not a lot of that happened. Not only does the full size orange one completely get in your way but it makes you look like a muppet and all the guys will give you shit about it endlessly.

I'm sure the PFDs the navy and coasties have were better than ours were though. It was pretty much company policy to never replace them until they failed so were were stuck with a lot of equipment that was years old and had a bad sensor or a faulty cartridge. So he had at least one dude blow up every time we were underway. I was lucky and got one of the good ones so I never blew up but one poor SOB blew up 3 or 4 times over a couple of months.

Doesn’t matter. The announcement was made, and recorded. Prosecution will have a field day running your incompetent lawyer in circles, proving that you can’t hear shit in a fiberglass submarine at sea. He’ll be so bogged down calling expert witnesses to prove that 1 minor and inconsequential point that he won’t have time to defend his client from the possession and trafficking charges. Client gets 25 to life, lawyer gets a visit from the cartel party squad. They explain to him why he should stay focused on the case and not the trivial bullshit. The explanation is usually done with cordless power tools.

Different coastie anon here, I'm an ME and I joined to get into federal LE. The general public tends to view the CG as a branch of rescue swimmers even though that's a small fraction of our branch. We deal with drug runners and migrants all the time, work with customs (coasties are designated customs officers when they have to be) and do a lot of operations worldwide, mostly training other countries. We even have a detachment in the middle east that sweeps containers. We differ from other branches mostly in that Posse Comitatus doesn't apply to us (LE afloat and ashore), you usually can choose where you end up billetwise, and you start as a nonrate E-3 until you go to your A school to get rated

>Also any experience on those ice breakers you guys got?
Retired DC here. I did 6 south trips on an old icebreaker, back when we had 8 hulls in the red fleet. If you go any of the 3 engineering ratings, you’ll put in a lot of long days. Everybody winds up putting in a few 20 hour days sooner or later, that’s just the nature of shipboard life. The flip side is, you also hit patches where you’ve got a lot of time on your hands. Get good at playing D&D, have a few campaigns rolled up and ready to go, and have the books, screens, and dice. You won’t lack for players, and there’ll usually be a half dozen others just there to listen to the shenanigans.

You’ll visit a lot of interesting places, drink unique and disgusting concoctions, and throw up on your shoes at least once. My only real memory of Trinidad-Tobago is of being crowd-surfed over a sea of smiling black faces until I landed in a taxi. A half dozen sweating black people the size of linebackers piled in with me, after which there was much shouting at the driver about getting me back to the boat. Next time I woke up, I was being carried onto the quarterdeck.

New Zealand was weird, too. Go to club, get picked up by 18yo qt, go home with her, meet her parents, then spend the night with her loudly riding my cock. Next morning her parents thanked me for visiting and hoped I’d had a good time. That was the first time I saw beer in gallon jugs, too.

If you’re going to join, look at all of the ratings. Decide which one best fits what you want to do. Haunt the forums for a while. It doesn’t hurt to pick a rating that gives you marketable skills.
