The modern pirates of the Horn of Africa claim their actions denote self defense of their territorial waters although the extortion and murder committed by the self-proclaimed “coast guard” belay these claims.
Judging from their appearance, place of origin, accent, and mannerisms, it's very likely they are from the French Caribbean, as well as the fact that the GIGN seems to be their main enemy.
Their hand model features bare tan arms and hands with a golden watch on the right arm.
- The Pirates were added in the August 10th, 2012 update.
- Similar to real life, the outfit and role of the Pirates are inspired by the Somali Pirates.
- The Pirates appeared on Aztec in early beta stages instead of the Phoenix Connexion.
- The only operation that has not included any maps featuring the Pirates is Operation Vanguard.
