The international response to piracy through naval deployments off the
Horn of Africa indicated that the piracy threat held a greater challenge
than expected. The incompatibility between the war-fighting capabilities
of the naval forces and the non-military status of the pirate groups can be
attributed to the asymmetric nature of operations between the two actors.

The piracy case off Somalia is not the only example of how asymmetry
at sea offsets stronger and more sophisticated opponents. In a scenario
closer to naval warfare, Iran with its Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy is
an example of deliberate employment of asymmetry to counter the advantages
of opposing naval forces in the Persian Gulf region.

The Sea Tigers of the LTTE movement in Sri Lanka also portrays the use of asymmetry at sea, but by an irregular opponent against a regular navy.

Whereas the pirates off Somalia do not deliberately employ asymmetry, but perhaps exploit the advantages, Iran made a conscious decision to plan and equip for asymmetry by investing in a naval force operating in parallel with its regular navy. In contrast, the Sea Tigers, being an irregular force, used
asymmetry at sea through tactics and equipment to wage its low-intensity
conflict against the Sri Lanka Navy.

In each of the three cases, whether it is a deliberate military, insurgent or criminal strategy, the asymmetry in the respective threats has complex, if not dangerous, consequences for naval forces.
