While the US Coast Guard gets a lot of flak from other branches of the military (even though they aren’t technically part of the military anymore), there is no question that they have some of the most dangerous jobs around.

From high-seas rescues to high-stakes interception of cartel vessels, the USCG has an incredibly diverse and intense mission that deserves recognition.

Part of the USCG’s elite Deployable Operations Group (DOG), the Maritime Security Response Team (MSRT) is taked with counter-terrorism, direct action, hostage rescue and advanced interdiction, just to name a few of their many roles. Bearing the Latin motto “Nox Noctis est Nostri” (“The Night is Ours”), the team routinely trains alongside SEALs, EOD, the FBI and other entities.

One very specific job that the MSRTs take on is the interception and boarding of cartel narco-submarines, custom-made submersibles that generally ferry several tons of cocaine into the US via the Gulf of Mexico.

Such daring raids are often caught on camera, such as one recently carried out by the crew of the USCG Munro, which seized 8 tons of cocaine, making it the largest seizure yet.

In the footage, raid teams can be seen ordering the submersible to stop before leaping aboard and opening the hatch, demanding the operator’s surrender.

To honor the crew of the Munro, the USCG reports that Vice President Mike Pence will welcome them back later this afternoon as they return to port in San Diego, California.

Crazy and very dangerous....next time knock with a 50 cal....so your family doesn't get a folded flag instead of you returning home.

Maybe some explosives would have been better. Something with a magnet and remote detonator

The boats are generally made of fiber glass and non ferrous..magnets won't work.

The design and manufacturing techniques employed in their construction have improved over time: the boats have become faster, more seaworthy, and of higher capacity than earlier models.[1] An 18 m (59 ft) long narco-submarine can reach speeds of 18 km/h (9.7 knots) and carry up to 10 tons of cocaine.[1] They are typically made of fiberglass, powered by a 225–260 kW diesel engine and manned by a crew of four. They have enough cargo space to carry two to ten tons of cocaine, carry large fuel tanks which give them a range of 3,200 km (1,700 nautical miles),[1] and are equipped with satellite navigation systems. There is no head (toilet), and accommodation is cramped.

Aircraft, construction grade, bonding adhesive tape. Great stuff. Expensive and not sold to the public. I get mine at the local aircraft maintaince supply at the airport.. They think i'm an aircraft mechanic. Wear overalls or coveralls when shopping. Pay cash. It's a 3M industrial product.
