HIGH SPEED NORTH ATLANTIC CHASE HUGGING COAST OF NORTH AFRICA, MOROCCO

 

Redan Simdo decided not to head into the Mediterranean, as every German U-Boat that went into the Wadj Ur, in the Second World War was lost, around sixty of them. It seemed a statistical certainty that passing through the Pillars of Hercules, would be a one way trip.

 

Red was torn, while not firmly believing John Storm's warning as to radiation leaks, he had a hunch that the famous conservationist would not stoop to double-dealing about something like that. His crew had mixed views ... As they pushed on past on down the coast of Morocco, Atlas mountains, past Casablanca towards the Sahara Desert and Puerto Del Carmen, the crew began to change their minds, until they all began to question why it was that just John Storm and the Elizabeth Swann were giving chase.

 

 

NEW HEADING TO SAHARA DESERT & PUERTO DEL CARMEN

 

"They've changed course again Skip. Getting dangerously close to the coast."

 

"Hal, what do we have on the seabed close inshore?"

 

"Not a great deal John. Keeping a weather eye open, recording littoral topography, for future navigation."

 

"So, we have nothing?"

 

"Nothing Skip."

 

"Keep swinging the lead."

 

In trying to evade the Swann, the SSN Neptune navigates an unusual course, way off the normal transport lanes. In hot pursuit, the Swann's instruments pick up magnetic signature of U-Boat 986 with side scan sonar, lodged in irregular rock formation between the Canary Islands and African coast.

Disillusioned eco activists are imprisoned by the British, for peacefully protesting in London about unrealistically low fines for oil spills in the North Sea, demonstrating strictly in accordance with their Article 9 and 10 Human Rights. They are targeted by fossil fuel industry fraudsters, who bribe police officials and court judges to secure a conviction, with the backing of corrupt ministers of state who have undeclared personal investments in oil drilling companies: Amoco, BP, Shell, Total. That sets in motion a train of events, where, having been framed, the ever more determined environmentalists build a mini-sub, fast enough and especially equipped, to sink or capture Astute, Aukus and US Seawolf class submarines. Having captured HMS Neptune, the Terramentals torpedo a BP owned rig, also destroying two others (Shell), with the looming threat to target all 150 plus, operating in the North Sea. The oil producers are temporarily forced to shut down production, as a result of the significant media coverage and public outrage on realization of the pollution. The UN asks John Storm to provide a geodata survey on the environmental damage.
