[Al Jazeera] Sri Lanka battles Sea Tigers

Published by under Al Jazeera

The Sea Tiger’s suicide craft are almost impossible to detect. They are dark, sit low in the water and cannot be detected by radar. The only way for the Sri Lankan navy to find them is through heat-detecting systems, but even then they travel at such speed that they are very difficult to shoot at.

The boats, packed with explosives, are modelled on an American stealth bomber, but a more recent development is a human torpedo craft designed especially for suicide attacks.

Commander Sanjeewa Dias, a Sri Lankan navy chief, tells Al Jazeera: “If the attack boat hits [our ship] and our maneuverability is gone, then that’s it.

“Because then the suicide craft is going to come and ram you.”

Samarasinghe told Al Jazeera the navy needed international help, saying the supply lines to the Tamils were “something the foreign countries and organistaions can prevent”.
