As an aside- do you think it would boost the ratings of "Whale Wars" if the activists were allowed to have and use military-grade weaponry?
I watched the show the other night and they had this "secret weapon"- a special rope thta can, if properly placed, wrap around a ship's propellor and disable it for quite some time. However it became painfully obvious that the activists didn't have any skill in pulling off such a mission.
But anyway here is what I propose:
For every whale killed they get to arm and fire one torpedo.
Their helicopter gets armed.
To stop a hunt they get smaller charges that can only be used to disable the boats without harming the hunters.
RPGs. Can't have a war without RPGs.
Also give them a group of techies that can help them better launch their old arsenal.
