The program reportedly includes training dolphins to search for mines and marking them with buoys. But Ukraine also plans to train the dolphins "to attack enemy combat swimmers using special knives or pistols fixed to their heads," according to RIA Novosti. A source inside the Ukrainian navy told the agency that the exercises, which are being conducted at the state oceanarium in Sevastopol, are "counter-combat swimmer tasks in order to defend ships in port and on raids."
In other news, the Polish navy has been unsuccessfully trying to train goldfish to breath outside of water. :(
Thanks to Devish, who heard dumping hungry sharks in the area is their back-up plan. And a solid one if I do say so myself.
