Well, the suicide ship can fire off a rack or a few sub-
munition packs as well as ramming, whereas SMs
have to get through whatever defences the target has.
Would we agree that ramming damage should be
calculated after weapons fire, so that (a) the ramming
ship gets a chance to launch these weapons, and (b)
the target ship gets a chance to shoot down suicide
I'm sure there's a proper Arabic term for suicide
volunteers, it's just eluding me...
