This is coolbert:

Mozambique under attack. Rwandan navy to the rescue. Rwanda? A landlocked nation? Rwanda?

YES! And it seems quite successful too!

From the H. I. Sutton Internet web site "Covert Shores" and thanks to same.

"Landlocked Navy Goes To War: Rwanda's mystery 'Squad 007' Boat Grabs Attention"

"Being land-locked, the Rwandan Defense Force (RDF) is not well known for its navy. However a small force which normally patrols a lake has been flung into the lime-light, operating in Mozambique. Rwandan forces deployed to the country on July 9, 2021 to help combat Islamic State aligned forces which have gained control of large parts of the country. They appear to have been very successful in their mission. The boats have been operated along the coast, apparently more successfully than Mozambique's' own navy. This may be surprising since Mozambique has, on paper, a very well equipped and modern force."

"The Rwandan boats appear to be a variant of the Italian-made Fabio Buzzi 36" (11 meters) racing RIB (rigid inflatable boat)." As operated by Rwandan Marines. And equipped with two 12.7 mm [.50 inch] Chinese heavy machine guns HMG.

Go Rwandans. Good job! Impressive!
