BLOODTHIRSTY tourists are paying £3,500 a day to join PIRATE-KILLING cruise ships.
They board private yachts secretly armed to the teeth with grenade launchers, AK47 machine guns and rockets.
Then they cruise slowly between Djibouti in Somalia to Mombasa in Kenya hoping to attract the attention of pirates.
If attacked, the Russian tourists - and ex-special forces troops who sail with them - open fire.
Yachtsman Vladimir Mironov said: "They are worse than the pirates - just paying to murder.

"I got three confirmed kills on my last trip. I'll never hunt big game in Africa again. I felt like the Komandant in Schindlers list!" -- Lars , Hamburg Germany
"Six attacks in 4 days was more than I expected. I bagged three pirates and my 12yr old son sank two rowboats with the minigun. PIRATES: 0 - PASSENGERS: 32! Well worth the trip. Just make sure your spotter speaks English" -- Donald, Salt Lake city Utah USA
"I haven't had this much fun since flying choppers in NAM . Don't worry about getting shot by pirates as they never even got close to the ship with those weapons they use and their #ty aim--reminds me of a drunken'juicer' door gunner we picked up from the motor pool back in Nam" -- 'chopper' Dan, Toledo USA.
"Like ducks in a barrel. They turned the ship around and we saw them cry in the water like little girls. Saw one wounded pirate eaten by sharks--what a laugh riot! This is a must do." -- Zeke, Springs Kentucky USA
