“It burns and drowns”: a former American boat of the Navy “Starobelsk” entered into battle with a conditional enemy

The Ukrainian Navy decided to conduct a training involving an Island-type patrol boat previously handed over by the United States of America. We are talking about a boat, which in the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine received the name "Starobelsk" and number P191.


In the press service of Ukrainian fleet stated that "Starobelsk" as part of the Navy first worked out the "experimental course task."
This task consisted of performing a set of exercises: repulsing an enemy attack from the sea, firing standard (Ukrainian) weapons at surface and air targets.

The Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine tells about the legend of the exercises: the Starobelsk boat was forced to engage in artillery battle with enemy ships and air means. Given the armament of Starobelsk, it must be assumed that the use of its 25-mm gun was called a boat by artillery in Ukraine. The video confirms this (presented below).

As a result of the battle in one of the compartments of the Ukrainian (which was originally American) boat, a fire started, then the boat received a hole below the waterline.



Ukrainian users, commenting on this legend, not without irony, note that it is quite realistic for a boat of the Island type written off by the United States - “it burns and drowns in the event of a battle with ships and helicopters as well”.

At the same time, the commander of the patrol boat, senior lieutenant of the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Pavel Gladchenko, notes that "the crew confirmed the readiness of the boat to perform both a single voyage and to conduct combat."



As you can see, the crew members of the boat can not always pick up Ukrainian words when telling about the exercises - sometimes they have to be in Russian ...

As it turned out, during the training on the boat, actions were also worked out to “repel the attack of divers-saboteurs”.

      Judging by the photo, in the event of a helicopter attacking a boat, is the shooter obliged to fall on his knees to raise the gun barrel?

      But if they really try to do this, they will be drowned in the port ...

        Rocket 900, with a launch of 1.5 -2 tons, for example.

            I also do not believe in 4 launchers, but a couple, in my opinion, is quite possible.

                        it’s in vain, the ship is not bad for its purposes, they were built in 30 years in a large lot, the Americans simply did not have the problem of escorting Atlantic convoys after 1991, for which they were built.
                        And so half is still running, including modernized, albeit obsolete.
                        But specifically, Ukraine its advantages in seaworthiness, range is simply useless. Especially since the American Perry Mk13 was simply dismantled due to the cessation of production of cm-1, it is a frigate PLO.

                        In Ukraine, they constantly talk about a mosquito fleet, in fact, different and unrealistic, there is definitely no money for this.

                        Permissible weight of weapons and equipment is 10 tons.
                        Theoretically, they completely allow their transformation into missile boats.

                  Perry, first of all, PLO, in the Atlantic convoys, the Americans did not face anything else. And with this he was fine, the rest was auxiliary.
                  But the problem of convoys disappeared suddenly, and the frigate became unnecessary
                  And about Priluki, it was 1979, in 1996 it was withdrawn from the fleet, then Ukraine turned it on again. Very old, for a boat over 40 years, many.
                  The conversation was about what Neptune to put on it, maybe, as an experimental use.

    And there isn’t much sense in these frigates ... it is not for nothing that the Americans sent them so quickly to resign, they are unsuccessful.

    They were sent to the reserve and then written off / for sale, because there were no goals left for them - the Soviet submarine fleet and MRA died. Plus, the struggle for cost savings began, and even the creators of LCS promised that the new ship will be able to fulfill the tasks of the FR. As a result, the fleet made a rash (as it turned out later) decision on the uselessness of specialized frigates for the USN.

    The position of the metacentre is determined by the geometry of the hull. May vary slightly with changing load on the vessel, i.e. when changing its landing in water and changing moments of inertia. And if the metacentre becomes higher, then this is definitely good (with some reservations, which do not apply to the meaning of what is written in this case).

          In fact, the metacentre will also move slightly due to the fact that the ship sits a little deeper into the water, the geometry of the submerged part of the hull changes. But definitely not say up / down, and there is such a miserable movement that you can not really count.

    I’m talking to my friends and colleagues and am surprised. This is carried !!!! I’m starting to delve into what kind of super weapon you have there, slogans about freedom, independence and ... our GDP begin, which does not allow them to develop in this direction! So I’m not surprised that the main caliber will be the yellow-black flag and broadcast of the anthem independent, while this trough will go to the ram ... The main thing is that the filmmakers should shoot!

    As you can see, the crew members of the boat can not always pick up Ukrainian words when telling about the exercises - sometimes they have to be in Russian ...
    Here the author generally dokanal me ...
    For six years they have been repeating in VO that the conflict in Donbass began because of the draconian laws against the Russian language, that in Kiev they beat and make you jump for a word in "non-native", but here on you! The Russian-speaking was taken to the fleet!

      Are you trying to justify the “absurdity of war” in the SE on the example of the “language issue” (“little things”, or rather one of the many that led to the beginning and escalation of the conflict)?

      Then what prevents you from developing the topic further and not claiming that the use of the APU in the Donbass was initially illegal and is a crime on the part of the authorities of the outskirts?

      Russian speaking?
      When was it an obstacle to a normal existence on the outskirts (and not only), if a native speaker is a native of nationalist and other radical ideas?

          I, as a direct witness and participant in all the processes in Donbass, from the moment of birth, do not need to "unwind" anything. No.

          For me, the criminality of the sequence of actions of the Outskirts regimes from the moment it acquired "independence" in 1991 is obvious, in relation to its own population of Donbass, now fortunately the former part of the ex-independent.

          Your attempts, thus washing the black dog, cannot be successful, due to its obvious scallop No. .

      In fact, this is a common practice when practicing course tasks. Exactly the same issues (fire, struggle with water,) are being worked out by Russian ships.

    commander of a patrol boat senior lieutenant of the Navy APU Pavel Gladchenko
    If in the photo in red it is not clear that the boat commander is also a bachelor, then we can conclude that fat is eaten in excess and they have long forgotten about physical training.
    "The crew confirmed the readiness of the boat to perform both a single voyage and to conduct combat."
    There is no doubt about a solo voyage, because. It is difficult to assemble a "pack of wolves" about which Ukrainian strategists have spoken so much, but the conduct of the battle is probably until the first shot.

    I read the comments. I understand that anti-Ukrainian sentiments are stronger than ever. But if we discard politics, then what will we see ?! At its core, the Ukrainian and Russian Charters are the same. And all that is shown is just the completion of task K-2. Exactly the same are carried out on Russian ships. Therefore, I do not see anything funny or remarkable. Conventional exercises on a not entirely new ship as part of a not completely worked out and close-knit crew.

    What is the conversation about? These boats are used by the Coast Guard. They were chased into the tail and into the mane, and after the write-off they began to sell them to the "partners". I'm wondering: in what system of measures are these boats built? If in an inch, then Ukraine has acquired a significant crap. And as for their modernization, even the Americans succeeded in it. They tried to upgrade several of them, and the case ended with their complete write-off, due to problems with the strength of the hulls.

        normal, but age-related. In general, I came across infa that all Icelandic buildings of the 80s of construction had problems with the hull (I will not vouch for the authenticity of this). But the question with the measurement system remains open. I have not seen anything about this. It is logical to assume that, since they were built in the USA and for the USA, the measurement system is inch. And this, you see, results in a bunch of problems.

    Not entirely new - to say the least. For such boats, more than 30 years is a respectable age. And believe me, this is without irony and without reference to Russian-Ukrainian relations.
