They have to be stopped one way or another.

Actually I'm sorta with Difflock, they figured if they captured a ship like that with that big gun then they could increase their ability to capture bigger and faster ships and travel even farther in defense of their coast.

Then, they probably would have had to attack in the stealth mode...and then it would have been battleship against battleship.

Maybe that was the thinking, but they did not recon on air recon. excuse the pun.

THIS is the Nivose. Note that it does NOT look anything like a merchant ship of any kind. The 100mm Gun at the pointy end is the most notable clue.
Well, imagine they get there hands on one of this.
