Taiwanese navy landing craft sank off the coast of the island

Found confirmed information about the incident with the landing craft of the naval forces of Taiwan. According to the Taiwanese command, the landing craft sank in the waters belonging to the Kinmen district.


The official version of the reasons is bad weather: high waves, strong gusts of wind.

Taiwan Navy Command:

The landing craft lost the possibility of further controlled movement due to high waves. Water flooded the cabin, entered the inner compartment. The crew is rescued. All its members are safe.

It is known that we are talking about the landing craft LCM 1326 - Landing Craft Mechanized. He was on his way to his home on the island of Taiwan.

Taiwan Navy Command:

The crew members of the landing craft took measures to pump out water, but all efforts were in vain.

It is reported that the boat eventually sank around 17:18 local time in the waters of Liaoluo Bay.

A departmental investigation is underway, which should clarify a number of issues. One of them is why was the landing craft put out to sea without taking into account the weather forecast? If the weather forecast was received by the commander, did this forecast correspond to the real state of affairs at sea?

The spokesman for the head of Taiwan, Xavier Chang, reported to "President" Tsai Ing-wen about the incident with the landing craft.

    "Landing craft lost stability"
    The beams of the set lose their stability.
    And the ship or ship loses Stability.

      Well, in fairness, there are already three axes. And the ship still has stability - exchange rate. By the way, the "eroplane" of these "stability" has a small cart. Forgive the old bore. wink

        In fairness, vessels do not sink from exchange rate stability. To fly ashore or run aground if the watchman left the bridge, and the SKDVP is turned off or the weight dangles in front of the sensor - this can, but there is no overkill.

          Not a sailor. In my entire life, I have only seen the Sea of ​​Okhotsk from above, but once felt it with my hands. But it seems to keep your nose to the waves, and not wobble - an important property. Somersaulting is also not just out of the blue. Yes, and drowning on an "even keel" is probably also possible.

            The ship never sails straight ahead. It is affected by various factors that take it off course, even such a force as the counter-rotation of the shaft, like that of a helicopter, it is very small in relation to the ship, but even it takes it off course. The ship's yaw in small deviations is common, the autopilot keeps it on course with less yaw, the man with more.
            To tumble because of a wave, it is necessary to stand up to it with a lag and so that the wave is no smaller than the ship, and so the reasons are an error in the calculations when a heavy one is loaded onto the deck; icing; even improper fuel consumption can lead to loss of stability.

    I wonder what for they kicked the soapbox into the sea? This is a means of landing, and not a pleasure yacht, all tasks are to swim from the side of the ship to the shore and at least fall apart there

      I remember that in the 60s we had a similar case in the Far East. Four "grandfathers" climbed after lights out onto the landing platform, they had a drink in store there. And they were so carried away by this occupation that they did not notice how the boat got loose and quietly swam to the east. In short, after 49 days they were picked up by an Amer aircraft carrier. The case got into the bourgeois media, and ours only had to declare them heroes, conquerors of the elements! Their names are: Sergeant Fedotov, Poplavsky, Askhat Ziganshin, Kryuchkov.
      Then there was another joke. It turns out there were not four, but five. When Fedotov was asked - where is the fifth? - he answered, picking his teeth: Yes, the wave washed away ...
      Maybe the same story with the Taiwanese boat? laughing

      Apparently they are studying the work of our S. Marshak:
      Three wise men in one basin
      Set sail on a thunderstorm.

    We open a search engine, enter Taiwan smuggling, we see exactly the same galoshes in every second message. And they have more questions. what the hell is a boat trampled in bad weather on the sea to throw ...

    Sunk and sunk, tk. anything happens. If you figure it out, then there is still nowhere to land from the island. Well, if only they decide to attack mainland China? (joke)

    I hope the crews of "High Waves" and "Strong Gusts" are presented for government awards?
