The Coast Guard Cutter James and crew members from Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron conduct training and demonstrations while underway in the Atlantic Ocean March 29, 2017. Cutter James is the Coast Guard's 5th National Security Cutter, the largest and most technically advanced class of cutter in the Coast Guard, with robust capabilities for maritime homeland security, law enforcement and national defense missions. HITRON helicopters operate in known smuggling vectors and rely on expertly trained aircrews and precision marksmen to disable go-fast drug smuggling vessels in the event suspects refuse to comply with verbal and visual warnings for law enforcement boardings in accordance with international maritime law.
