Alexey Migalin said:

“For four years in a row we have been holding a patriotic action to force the Kerch Strait. In memory of the soldiers of the Red Army and the sailors of the Black Sea fleetkilled during the Kerch-Eltigen operation of 1943 to liberate the Kerch Peninsula. And we tried to restore our armored vehicle for the 77th anniversary of the beginning of this operation. We managed to do it. "

7 days at the bottom of the strait


In the BRDM-2, which lay at the bottom of the Kerch Strait from 25 to 31 July, the engine was overhauled.

All electrical equipment was changed, including the wiring, as the salt ate all the appliances.

Before that, the car was completely disassembled and troubleshooting of components and assemblies was carried out. To remove sea salt, they were repeatedly washed with special agents and fresh water.

Blasting (cleaning), priming and painting of the armored vehicle body were carried out.

The head of the "Military-Technical Society" supplements:

“After successfully testing the car afloat last weekend in the Moscow region, we also decided to replace four retractable wheels. The discs, despite their processing and painting, began to rust. We have already purchased new wheel assemblies and will change them in the near future. Therefore, we can say that the car is 99% ready for further operation. "

The pumps did not cope with the flow


An armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicle went under water during the patriotic action "Kerch landing" Road of Courage "on 25 July.

When crossing the Kerch Strait from the Taman Peninsula, a wave began to overwhelm the BRDM-2. The pumps did not cope with the water flow.

The participants of the action and the crew managed to evacuate. They were transferred to the boats of the Ministry of Emergencies. On July 30, the armored vehicle was found. And on August 1, they were raised ashore.

Kerch-Eltigen operation


The Kerch-Eltigen landing operation (October 31 - December 11, 1943) was carried out to liberate the city and port of Kerch, seize the port of Kamysh-Burun and further liberate Crimea.

This is one of the largest amphibious operations of the Great Patriotic War. Its duration was 40 days.

The result of the operation was the capture of a bridgehead on the Crimean peninsula.

    Such, I'm not afraid of this word, anxious attitude to technology, nothing but the deepest respect can deserve.
    The pumps (pump) just could not cope. Drainage and drainage systems are designed to remove water from the housing due to possible leaks, etc. They can hardly save from overwhelming waves ...

        And the machine is designed to cross a strait about 5 km wide and a sea wave?

            Bombar is a doctor, and he presented it as a scientific experiment, and even practical conclusions came into use based on the results of the swim, some of them turned out to be false, somehow advice to drink seawater, but in reality it was a gamble in which he was accidentally lucky, and on which he made money.
            But even he had an unsinkable boat, and a sealed NZ with food and a walkie-talkie to call rescuers.

              And in this swim, boats of the Ministry of Emergency Situations went from both sides, on which the crew of the car was taken. Especially for such cases.
              But when they cross the Channel, there will be no rescuers around.
              Let them practice.

                No one will send them to La Mansche, let alone civilians.
                and next time the Ministry of Emergency Situations will not have time, a wave swept into the sea, or with a plug of some kind of problem or an oil seal - the buoyancy reserve there is small, it will go like a stone.

        Marine amphibians are very large. Four times more than this landing vehicle.

    As for me, this idea of ​​forcing is not very smart.
    They are reinforced until someone is seriously hurt. sad
    Why not use more historically accurate landing craft?
    There, hundreds of watercraft participated in the landing, of which it is not a problem to pick up modern, sufficiently reliable and sufficiently seaworthy, but not a post-war armored vehicle, which is poorly suitable for sea voyages in the stormy strait.

        If you imagine that two boats went under sail from St. Petersburg to Kronstadt, let sailors sit on one, people completely unfamiliar with sea affairs on the other. The first will sail, and nothing interesting will happen to them on the way, the second will storm, in all likelihood, the sail will rip out, the boat will tumble on its side, it will begin to flood, the shirt will be raised instead of the sail, the water will be poured with hats, in a word, the swimming will be full of interest, in They will be greeted in Kronstadt with all kinds of applause, and these people will be known as true heroes.

        and what do the "Rules for the Use of Small Vessels" say about such an overcoming?
        Someone gave permission for such "navigation"? If someone gave, is he going to answer? And if a tragedy happens?
        .....eight. When sailing on small boats, it is prohibited:
        a) operate a small vessel:
        not registered in the prescribed manner;
        who have not passed the technical examination (inspection);
        not carrying side numbers;
        converted without permission;
        in violation of the norms of loading, passenger capacity, restrictions on the area and sailing conditions;
        without a certificate for the right to drive a small boat;
        intoxicated;
        b) transfer control of the ship to a person who does not have the right to drive or is in a state of intoxication;
        c) exceed the established travel speeds;
        d) violate the rules for maneuvering, giving sound signals, carrying side lights and signs;
        ......

        as well as a ship's ticket and so on.

        Everything has long been thought out in safety requirements before us ...
        I think everything is simpler there - people have bardards, they thought up where to adapt them?
