Reports of another Russian ship hit

Postby MikeJames » 06 May 2022 13:08

Unconfirmed reports emanating from the Ukrainian armed forces suggest that the Russian Navy Admiral Grigorovich-class guided-missile frigate Admiral Makarov has been struck by Ukrainian anti-ship missiles off the coast of Odesa in the Black Sea.

The Admiral Makarov is a much smaller ship that the Moskva, but fitted with the latest Russian offensive and defensive systems.

The Russians, who have been limited to building corvettes and frigates in the post-Soviet era, claim the class are amongst the most capable surface combatants of the Russian Navy.

Attempting to get more info and will update when I do.

Good stuff Mike, keep us posted. I for one have been willing the Ukrainians on to score another Naval hit to burn that Butcher Putin. Unfortunately, many decent Russians have probably also lost their lives due to his stupidity, but War is War. Hopefully somebody in his regime will stand up and stop this madness.

The Ukrainian military have updated their claim from 'damaged' to 'heavily damaged' and claim rescue vessels re converging on the site from Sevastopol.

"According to reports, a Ukrainian Armed Forces unit struck the Russian frigate Admiral Makarov, which was heavily damaged and is burning in the Black Sea near Zmiinyi (Snake) Island. Russian aircraft are now circling over this area of the Black Sea, and rescue vessels have come out of the temporarily occupied Crimea to help the ship".

However, the spokesman added, "the information is yet to be clarified." "But the fact that she suffered a ‘snake bite’ in the area of ​​Snake Island is true," he said.
