A Vietnam War Story (from someone else):
The Russian "Trawlers" (Russian AGI) with what looked like one thousand "fishing" antennas plied the Gulf of Tonkin on a daily basis...needless to say, it was a cat and mouse game to see what havoc they could expend towards our two carriers operating there twenty-four hours a day.
We saw an AGI and tanker dead in the water bow to stern with a hose between them—their idea of UNREP (refueling).
We made a low pass to 'pay our respects' and I commented on the UHF radio to the other aircraft, "One of these days those Ruskies will learn how to conduct underway replenishment like a real Navy."
Someone keyed their mike and in perfect English relied, "Fuck you, Yankee."
All that "fishing gear" worked pretty good as antennae, apparently!
