Stay away, and when in danger, open fire. If you cannot defend yourself or do not want to, then stay far far away. Remember, this is not a new thing.
First off, thank you for your service.

Quick question:
What is the RoE for the Coalition Maritime Campaign Plan in terms of a vessel in distress? Ie. A Sailing Vessel being fired at 25nm away.

If you call for help are you going to see a gunship come to your aid? Or are there some strict rules about sinking pirates by CMCP participants?

I have seen videos and read about say the dutch actively recovering a vessel from the hands of pirates and others of not offering to resolve the solution at all.
