We're all pretty familiar with Sam Fisher's qualifications, but keep in mind, Tom is an expert rescue diver/swimmer. And he may not be a secret agent, but he seems to handle automatic weapons quite well. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

so since he is a rescue diver.. are there any other quals that he has? Former SPECOPS? But isnt the question, who isnt tougher, but who has "BADMOFO" on their wallet?

Actually, I don't think Tom is officially qualified as a Rescue Diver--I believe he was kicked out of the program for insubordination. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

umm, apparently you guys don't know much about the U.S. Coast Guard. He is either a Boatswain's Mate in a TACLET or a Boarding Officer/boarding party member. Rescue swimmers are inserted by helicopter and do not wear the uniform or equipment he carries, plus rescue swimmers are NEVER called on to board ships. Boarding of vessels are conducted by either Coast Guard Tactical Law Enforcement teams (TACLET), Maritime Safety and Security Teams(MSST), or Boarding Partys. TACLET is used in drug or hostage cases and are usually inserted into an area by helicopter, but Taclet is a posibility. MSST operate out of ports, so that rules them out. The most likely is that Tom is a member of a boarding party, because of his bullet-proof coast guard issue red life vest and the fact that he boards the ship from a small boat.

Hey, great info, HailWillE! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Actually, you're right--Tom Hansen is a Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class. He didn't make it all the way through Rescue Diver training b/c of a run-in with a superior officer. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

For info, every WHEC (CG cutters 210',270',and 378') have rescue swimmers some are BO or BTM qualified (boarding team member or boarding officer) that can perform LE (law enforcement) boardings. You are referring to ASMs (aviation survival) that are deployed by helos. Also, now all CG personnel wearing a side arm or carrying a weapon whether performing a boarding or not must wear body armor. We don't do hostage cases, (we aren't trained for it). Any boarding team can handle contraband on vessels (i.e drugs)

Great info, txcoastie. You and HailWillE have been a great help for those with severe Coast-Guard ignorance, like myself. Thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

kinda ot.. but are the boarding teams wearing drop legs such as safari land or the old pistol belt holster?..

We normally wear a holster on the gun belt. Certain teams can wear the thigh holster but is kind of non-regulation. I have been told that MSST (Maritime Safety and Security Teams) sometimes wear the thigh holster.
