These rafts run over the water very fast, they are very light and agile. To keep that advantage they can only be armed with limited light weaponry; two rifles are mounted on the hull to have atleast some firepower.
They are very effective when in great numbers to attack large slow ships, they can easely get close enough for boarding action while still evading broadside fire.
(However, a singe cannonball would suffice to bring them down).
Eventhough I'm a big fan of the original lego pirates I couldn't resist showing off my rafts like this
(just for the record, that wreckage is actually the remains of the official Raft Raiders set).

Tough isn't it a lot easier to just carry the rifles instead of mounting them on the ship ?

The quality and style indeed looks like a Battlepack from TLC.
A well placed Blogg IMO
