A former artillery boat of the Ukrainian Navy, captured in Berdyansk in 2022, was named after the Russian clipper

The former Ukrainian small armored artillery boat (MBAC) of project 58155 (code "Gyurza-M") "Akkerman", captured by Russian troops in Berdyansk in 2022, was repaired and re-equipped with Russian artillery systems. This was reported by the Black Sea Fleet TG channel.

The armored boat "Ackerman" accepted into the Ukrainian Navy was part of the so-called "Azov flotilla"and was abandoned by the crew in fully operational condition in the port of Berdyansk in the first days of the Russian special operation. The boat was delivered to Sevastopol, where at one of the shipbuilding plants it underwent repairs and modernization, during which it changed weapons. Allegedly, instead of combat modules, "Katran- M" with a 30-mm automatic cannon, the boat received an automatic double-barreled 25-mm naval artillery mount 2M-3.



The boat itself was renamed “Robber” in honor of the sail-screw clipper that served in the Far East from 1879 to 1904 and was sunk by its crew on the entrance fairway of the internal roadstead before the surrender of Port Arthur.


Armored boats of project 58155 ("Gyurza-M") were developed by the Ukrainian enterprise "Treasury Research and Design Center for Shipbuilding" (Nikolaev) and are a further development of boats of project 58150 ("Gyurza"). Declared speed - up to 25 knots, cruising range of 700 miles at an economical speed, autonomy of five days. The crew is only five people.

    If I'm not mistaken, the "robber" was a messenger ship for the ambassador of the Russian Empire.

    Why not leave the old name, or call it Odessa?

      Why not serve!?
      But the supplied weapons raise a lot of questions. What, we don’t have more modern machine guns? 2M-3 was produced 1953-84. This is old stuff! It's all sad.

        These combat modules are available, they are in good working order, and they are stocked with ammunition. These are anti-aircraft guns, therefore they are accurate, rapid-fire, and 4 barrels are much better than 2 (albeit 30 mm).

          Considering your logic, I’m surprised that the new brigades are not armed with PPSh, there are many of them left and there are heaps of cartridges. And a 70-round magazine is better than a 30-round magazine.

            These boats have low combat value, there are hardly any spare parts for them, and they can only be useful for repelling BEC attacks. And it is precisely for these purposes that the installation of these modules is completely justified. There is no point in spending more on them. They took what they had and installed it. Because you have to do it quickly and BEC won’t wait for your innovations. There, the Crimean Bridge must be protected and the KChF bases.

    As I read this message, the question immediately arose: how is an armored boat equipped to combat unmanned fire ships and FPV drones? A military secret?

      Judging by the photograph, everything is the old fashioned way, sailor Vanya will vigilantly peer into the horizon at night and in the fog, and eliminate the danger of his grandfather’s old 2M-3

    artillery boat of the Ukrainian Naval Forces was named after the Russian clipper

    Isn't it a great honor for a boat to bear the name of a cruiser?
    Or does the Minister of Defense make no difference?

    “With re-equipment to Russian artillery systems” - more precisely, to Soviet ones, and most likely in the literal sense: as I understand it, the 2M-3 is from old stocks and has not been produced for a long time. It’s a pity that there isn’t something newer in the series from the category of light ship guns.

    Like, did you decide to compensate for the losses of the Black Sea Fleet this way? And by what percentage (fractions of a percent?) does this boat compensate for losses?

    If the sights are with thermal imagers, then 4 25 mm barrels are quite decent for combating BECs.

    The armament of this boat is from the last century. Its place is only as a museum for children or converted into a fishing farm. Perhaps someone from the Navy can explain the usefulness of this object.

      Why isn't it useful? Transfer to Rybnadzor. Catching poachers in the Sea of ​​Azov is the best thing.
