Sri Lanka

The LTTE considered the Tamil areas of northern and eastern Sri Lanka to constitute their own independent State (Tamil Eelam) and to this end they established a small Navy capability (here seen flying the LTTE Tiger flag). The LTTE "Sea Tigers" were ruthless and effective against the much bigger, better equipped Sri Lanka Navy, through the frequent use of suicide cadres, inflicting substantial losses on the SL Navy.
