On the Black Sea raised from the bottom of a torpedo boat that died during the Second World War

Military Divers of the Black Sea fleet found a torpedo boat at the bottom of the Black Sea during the Great Patriotic War. A boat of the G-5 type, which sank during the defense of Sevastopol, was lifted from the bottom by the crews of special ships of the Black Sea Fleet. This was reported by the press service of the fleet.


The crews of the rescue squad of the Black Sea Fleet search and rescue operations department completed the lifting of the hull of the G-5 torpedo boat, which died during the Great Patriotic War, from under water

- said in a statement.

It is specified that the boat was discovered at the exit from the Quarantine Bay, where a brigade of torpedo boats of the Black Sea Fleet was based during the defense of Sevastopol 1941-1942.

The press service noted that the hull of the boat raised from the bottom was perfectly preserved, despite the long time spent in sea water. The special commission will further establish the circumstances of the death of the boat and the possibility of using it as a museum apparatus.


For reference: torpedo boats of the G-5 type were developed in the early 30s of the last century under the guidance of the famous aircraft designer A. N. Tupolev. A seaplane float was taken as the basis of the hull for boats, which led to the creation of a convex upper deck, on which it was impossible to stand even with minimal rolling. In the arsenal of the boat were two 533-mm torpedoes in the grooved vehicles, which were launched by a dumping back. In addition, machine guns were present on the boats, which were constantly changing. At first, two 7,62 mm DA machine guns were put, then two 7,62 mm ShKAS machine guns, and since 1941 boats began to be equipped with one or two 12,7 mm DShK machine guns.

The displacement of the boat was 15 tons, length 19 meters, width - 3,3 m, draft - 1,2 m. Speed ​​- 50 knots (15 minutes), 47 knots (1 hour), 36 knots (7 hours). The crew of 6 people. Seaworthiness up to 2-3 points, the launch of torpedoes at 1-2 points.

Despite its shortcomings, a total of 1944 “G-333” boats were produced until 5. This boat became the most massive representative of its class in the Soviet Navy.

      Yes, for such a time the boat could even rot. But it is still repairable for the construction of a boat museum from it. repeat It’s good that they found and have such an opportunity.

        It was necessary to raise the boat, tow in shallow water, rinse, examine the condition of the aluminum hull, remove the ammunition, and lift it using the power frame.

            In this movie he had an armored boat, in the original book of Platonov, Shubin commanded precisely the G-5 torpedo boat. There was no place to take such a torpedo boat for filming in the early 80's. By the way, the author of the book included in the fighting episodes of the Baltic people real fighting episodes that occurred on the SF at the same time.

        And before them boats (type Sh-1929) were built (1933-4).
        46 knots. And this is in 1929 !!!
        Similar to the G-5.

      The report said. that the "black divers" had already removed the armament from him. So, apparently, this boat was known for a long time. Just now they decided to raise it, maybe for the anniversary of the Victory.

        Sounds like the truth. Although machine guns could be removed during the war, the depth there is small, judging by the fact that additional lighting was not needed for the shooting - no more than 20-30 m.

      Legend has it that at first he achieved much lower speed, only Tupolev with a few hammer blows changed the angle of the propeller blades, and the boat reached the expected parameters.

        This is not Tupolev, he never dealt with screws. The episode with the correction of the screw by blows of a sledgehammer is described in the memoirs of Academician Krylov, it was he who corrected the screw on some vessel.

          I read it once in: J. Kowalski, Radzieckie kutry torpedowe typu G-5 ", Warszawa 1979, c 6:


          I’m talking about testing the prototype ANT-3 - a fragment in translation: “... An interesting fact is associated with the tests of the Firstborn. During the first tests, the installation could not exceed 36 km / h. Upon learning of this, A. Tupolev arrived at the shipyard and after a thorough inspection of the ship was replaced with a few hammer blows. propeller blade angle. As a result, after launch, the ship reached a speed of 90 km / h. "

            Legend. Academician Krylov described this incident with a ship that occurred at the beginning of the twentieth century in the book "My Memories" in 1945. Actually, the M-5 aircraft engines were on the G-17, the propeller blades, apparently super-cavitating, had to try to make a mistake in the prop pitch. Either the drawing was wrong (and this is a question for the designer), or the manufacture.

      What are you saying? Maybe at least look into the wiki? That's what it says about the Northern Fleet in the article about the G-5.
      Torpedo boats of the Northern Fleet were used both independently and in cooperation with aviation. The area of ​​their operations was the Varanger Fjord, where they sunk 20 transports with a total tonnage of 54 thousand reg. tons, 4 patrol ships, 3 minesweepers and a patrol boat, as well as 2 small vessels with a tonnage of 130 tons. In addition, they damaged 4 vehicles and 3 guard ships.
      Well, transports are not ships, but ships (although I think that the difference is not clear to you). And the rest?

        I will not argue.

        There is still interesting information -
        Five G-5 boats during the war also fell into the hands of the enemy - two TKA (No. 111, No. 163) were captured by German troops in the Black Sea and Baltic, three (No. 54, No. 64, No. 141) - by the Finns. The latter became part of the Finnish Navy (V-3, V-1 and V-2, respectively), but after Finland left the war in 1944, the USSR was returned. The most effective of them, as part of the Finnish Navy, was the V-2, which sank together with two other Finnish TCAs the Baltic Fleet's Red Banner gunboat.

      They were not only used in the Second World War, but also managed to fight in Spain.
      28 sailors who fought on the G-5 became Heroes of the Soviet Union.
