Pirates have been successful in their most recent hijacking, receiving a hefty ransom of $7 million dollars.
Might I suggest a much more economical alternative:
It's a Bushmaster MK44 30mm Cannon. At an average unit cost of only $267,000, this investment would protect 26 ships and/or tankers transporting loads in the dangerous waters off Somalia for the same price as the ransom paid.
