      Renamed in honor of the brig Mercury --- Battle of the brig Mercury with Turkish battleships. The commander of the brig Mercury is Lieutenant Commander Kazarsky. Immortalized in bronze. On May 12, a detachment of ships consisting of the frigate "Standard" and the brigs "Orpheus" and "Mercury" went to the Bosphorus to monitor the enemy fleet. On May 14, Russian ships met the Turkish squadron (18 pennants), marching to the Bosphorus. The faster Shtandart and Orpheus, having set all the sails, broke away from the pursuit. "Mercury" was overtaken by two Turkish battleships - the 110-gun "Selime" under the flag of Kapudan Pasha (commander-in-chief) and the 74-gun "Real Bay" under the rear admiral's flag.

        So why not finish the story?
        As a result, due to the maneuver, Mercury emerged victorious from an unequal battle and safely joined the Fleet, although he suffered serious damage.

          Did not have time . I had to rush to work! hi drinks
          This monument is the very first one that was erected in the city of Sevastopol. He immortalized the feat of the brave team of the brig "Mercury", headed by their commander - Lieutenant-Commander A.I. Kazarsky (1799 - 1833).

          During the Russian-Turkish war in the Bosphorus, in May 1829, the brig Mercury, equipped with twenty guns, entered into an unequal battle with two enemy ships: the 110- and 74-gun Selimiya and Real-Bey. The desperate sea battle lasted for many four hours. As a result of the battle, about 22 holes were inflicted on the brig, as well as 297 damage of varying severity, however, thanks to the professional conduct of the battle, the skill and courage of the Russian sailors, the Mercury was able to become the winner. Even the enemy could not fail to recognize this brilliant victory, and one of the participants in this battle, the navigator of the Real Bay, subsequently wrote: “... During the battle, it became clear to us that the captain of the brig would in no case leaves, then he will simply blow up his brig. If in the greatest deeds of the ancient and modern period there are feats of courage, then this act now overshadows everything, and the name of the hero is worthy to be carved on the temple of glory in golden letters.

          For his valiant feat, the brig "Mercury" was awarded the highest award, namely, the right to fly the stern St. George's flag. A.I. Kazarsky was promoted to the rank of captain of the second rank, awarded St. George of the fourth degree and enlisted as an aide-de-camp in the royal retinue.

          Monument to A.I. Kazarsky was opened in the city of Sevastopol in 1893, it was made according to the project of A.P. Bryullov - a famous architect
          The decision was announced to the team, who unanimously approved it. A.I. Kazarsky ordered to prepare for a decisive battle. A loaded pistol was placed on the spire in front of the entrance to the kruyt-chamber, so that at a critical moment for the ship, the last of the surviving officers of the brig would blow up the ship along with the enemy with a shot in a barrel of gunpowder.
          Brig "Mercury" Lieutenant Captain A.I. KazarskyAbout 13.30, both Turkish ships approached the distance of effective fire and began the battle. In an effort to put the brig in two fires, the enemy intended to force it to surrender, initially hitting it with longitudinal shots from linear guns. The exceptionally skillful maneuvering of A.I. Kazarsky, who used both sails and oars to prevent the enemy from using his tenfold superiority in artillery, made it difficult for him to conduct aimed fire.

      I'm not sure about Mercury. But a spike was installed on the sister: - podkilnaya, in the bow bulb of the SJSC "Zarya-M", towed digital GAS "Vignetka-EM", and OGAS mainly for PDO - "Anapa-M". See the specifications for yourself.

      How? By inland waterways. From the Neva to the Volga-Balt, then along the Volga to Volgograd. Then through the Volga-Donskoy to Azov .. Dimensions allow.

        It has a very large draft - almost 8 meters (bulb), and in some places near the canals 4 meters.

      And why is he now in the Black Sea? In the Baltic, it will wait until the passage through the straits is opened. There are enough ships on the Black Sea to launch Caliber. Or they will be sent to Syria for military service, for a year.

      The Turks are allowed if the ship goes one way (at the moment) to its place of registry

    On the one hand, it’s good, but on the other, why build with Uranus? We need ships capable of working along the coast, especially since the World Cup is shot through.

      "Uranus" is armed with the first 8 serial base project 20380. All subsequent ones will be armed with UVP, where there will be "Caliber" or "Onyx". Our "hero" is the 6th, because "Uranus" is on him. I understand that, if you think purely logically.

        I know, but in theory it was necessary to refuse immediately after the appearance of Caliber.

    There is nothing at the Black Sea Fleet, except for three Petrels.
    So they send Mercury and renamed it under the feat of the brig.
    It is not in vain that they plan to send two of the 22350 frigates being laid down to the Black Sea Fleet, plus one UDC.

    Let's check, because Turkey, after the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, in accordance with the Montreux Convention, closed the Bosphorus and Dardanelles straits for Russian and Ukrainian warships, and then warned that the straits would be closed to all warships.

    I apologize to the Moreman brethren of this site ...
    I can only superficially assess the performance characteristics only in comparison ...
    But, you see, - the date of laying, commissioning, the composition of the Navy - ... for a long time!
    Not the situation...
    And, excuse me, - even though he was a native of Riga, - the impression was that we (our leaders) almost blew the Baltic Sea ...
