Mystery over ship from Libya heading for Loch Long arms depot

Mystery over ship from Libya heading for Loch Long arms depot

 
My educated guess is weapons being brought back from Libya that were supplied to rebel factions during the UKSF led overthrow of the Gaddafi regime.

Why bringing in weapons? Why not weapons going out?

Job over and dont want islamic extremists keeping them? 

Hilary Clinton tried to recover stingers and the US ambassador was killed in Benghazi.

Apparently vast amounts of Libyan weapons disappeared to be sold to warlords across Africa, in Gaza and Yemen.

It is possible that this is bringing in some arms that were recovered by some special forces op but why would the Libyan govt allow recovered arms to leave?

Could be recovered SAM's and we paid someone a load of money to obtain them? But surely more likely that this is docking to pick up munitions that we are giving or selling to the Libyans.

Yes Quite probable

The Herald notes that the base has not been NATO for some years and is wholly UK 

What would we be selling? SA80?

I suspect that it is heavy stuff that is not cost effective to send by air if there is no urgent need - bullets and shells.

I doubt that any sizeable SAM's would be recovered now - not enough to warrant a ship. But you never know. 

Probably just sending more bombs and bullets to Libya. Of course, just because it is a Libyan ship does not mean that it will head to Libya. Could go anywhere.

"Manchester fighters" recruited in large numbers played a big part in the UKSF led overthrow of the Gaddafi regime and subsequently returned to manchester.

A connection of which carried out the manchester arena bombing after allegedly recieving training in Libya.

What does that have to do with this ship? Nothing.
