A cargo ship tore off the stern of a Greek Navy minesweeper near the port of Piraeus

37

There are reports from Greece about an incident in the Piraeus port area. It is reported that there was a collision of a cargo ship with a ship of the Greek Navy. According to the latest information, we are talking about the minesweeper Callisto.


The force of the blow was such that the stern part of the warship was torn off - the minesweeper was actually torn in half.

At the moment, the incident is being investigated and the reasons for the collision that occurred at a relatively high speed are being investigated. It is known that the captain of a civilian ship has been arrested. It is noted that the cargo ship was heading from the Greek Piraeus to the Turkish Canakkale. The ship is owned by a company registered in Hamburg, Germany.

It is reported that the minesweeper, or rather what was left of it, had to be towed in a non-standard version to a naval base located on the island of Salamis in the Saronic Gulf.

A video is presented of how sea tugs are trying to deliver Callisto to the place where the damage caused to it will be assessed.


The minesweeper Callisto was previously owned by the British Navy. It was launched 35 years ago. The original name is HMS Berkeley. The British actively used HMS Berkeley to clear the water area during the 1991 Gulf War. Since 2001, the minesweeper has been in service with the Greek Navy.

Experts suggest that after the incident, the minesweeper will be sent for disposal.

          Yes, we got off easy. And then they write: the ship was cut in half, the stern was torn off ... Wow, writers ... angry

        Everything flows ... In my youth, if one more word could be inserted between "not" and a word, then it was supposed to write "not" separately.
        For example: "scrapping a not very young ship."

    I hope that none of the minesweeper's crew has been sold! And his ship was leaving, here it is already clear that it is cheaper to build a new one than to restore this one.

    No wonder it broke. Fiberglass body after all.
    The American TSC "Guardian" (with a wooden hull) in 2013 was also irretrievably lost after landing on the reef.

      Indeed, if it hits a mine with an acoustic fuse, it will still blow it off. And without the stern, the acoustic ones are no longer scary.

    No, it will still serve. Just think they ripped off the stern, how briskly it floats on the waves without it))

    the stern part was torn off - the minesweeper was actually torn in half.

    With such a destruction of the hull, there is no mention of the fate of the crew members of the minesweeper at all.
