Huge container ship “Mol Comfort” with cargo weapons for the Syrian Free Army crashed in the Indian Ocean. He was heading from Singapore to the port of Jeddah, having on board 4500 containers with weapons for the Syrian rebels.


Container ship with weapons for the Syrian rebels broke in half and sank


'MOL Comfort sank for reasons that weren't clear yet. He went from Singapore to Jeddah, and then had to proceed to Northern Europe. Containers are drifting at the crash site, and the crash itself will deal a severe blow to the container transport sector and the entire maritime industry.

Assessing the scale of the consequences is difficult, even impossible, not to mention the consequences themselves. This is the first time that a modern ocean liner container ship (built in Japan!) Sank in the ocean, breaking in half like a poorly built and operated dry cargo ship or an aged coaster. Previously, nothing of the kind happened, and no one thought it was possible, even theoretically. It just could not happen, but nevertheless, it happened.

              maybe there was a weapon there (it’s heavy) no one can prove it can’t sink to the bottom and empty containers remained floating on the surface, according to other information, the sea business and the fore and aft were drifting and are in the Indian zone, if so the Indians they will hasten to pull them aground with subsequent disposal and privatization and everyone will be silent - there is no ship and no problems

            The torpedo attack and the "spy" disappears because the crew was saved, there were no sensations, but the fact that the Amer generals also like money is more likely. In addition, why would full containers, with weapons, ammunition float like foam?

          Container ship with weapons for the Syrian rebels broke in half and sank


          The news, as a result of the non-delivery of CCA weapons, is good good . But the author of the article "-" negative for incompetence and idle chatter. The container ship did not sink, but only broke into two parts, which today are drifting in the ocean.

          From myself I can add one thing: It is very difficult to save both parts of the vessel, although it is theoretically possible.

          We'll see.

      I think that this accident is more beneficial to the United States than to Russia.
      Assad is already winning ... there is no need to risk Russia this way to prevent the supply of 4500 containers. Complete nonsense. Putin will not risk this image of the country. After all, this is a civilian vessel with a civilian crew.
      And who else benefit accident (terrorist attack)? Of course America! Firstly, money was laundered on supposedly sent 4500 containers of cargo, and secondly, "suddenly" it turns out that the ship was blown up and immediately blamed Russia for this ...
      After that, you can not only accept the Magnitsky act, but also seize all accounts and property of Russia abroad, and this is at least $ 1,5 trillion at the moment. And by doing so, stay in white. Cool invented!
      Russia turns out to be an aggressor, and America is a righteous country fighting for democracy ...
      In general, America is not the first to destroy its civilians in order to obtain an effect worldwide (explosion of twin towers).
      I think so.

        Looking at this picture, only one thought arises, greed knows no bounds, it’s necessary to overload the ship so, and if we assume that the containers also have weapons, then such a weight is generally surprising as it did not break the ship back in port.

        The risk is minimal. What can make such a crash easy to buy in any pharmacy, carry anywhere through any security system, the detection of this in a person absolutely does not threaten, with a medical certificate. The only problem is that it takes from two weeks to a month to hold an action. This is also not a problem, a member of the team has time, it’s almost impossible to notice it, the crew is tiny, the area is huge ...

The design of the vessel that met such a wave may not withstand the enormous pressure of the water that has fallen on it (up to 980 kPa, 9,7 atm), and the vessel will sink in a matter of minutes.

      Normal route. On the way to Northern Europe, he dumped cargo in Saudi Arabia. Do not go to Tartus. Break the container ship, no big mind needed. The position of the vessel relative to the wave, the length and height of the wave, the length and speed of the vessel. If the wavelength is equal to the length of the vessel, the chance to break increases. Plus loading, ballasting. This is very strictly watched by boatmasters. A ship cannot sink only on a slip and aground.

        No more than 26 tons of cargo.

        Sorry, where such information comes from. 40-feet are often thrown much denser (up to 36-38 tons). Ship cranes sometimes go to the limit, and they have a carrying capacity of 35-45 tons. For 8 years of naval experience, I have met this more than once. Especially when there is smuggling in containers, they put 18 tons in documents (for example), and in fact for 30 tons. More than once they were loaded in Brazil, one according to the documents, and the ship sits much lower than paper. Another thing is that empty containers, as a rule, are also enough.
        Hence the conclusion: most likely the vessel is loaded incorrectly and, as a consequence, a wave break.

    'MOL Comfort sank for reasons unknown for now. "

    "Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan called US President Barack Obama in Berlin on Wednesday, June 19 to announce his sudden decision to close the Turkish corridor to supply arms to the Syrian rebels from the US and NATO."

    I think Putin, on the 16th, informed Erdogan about the location of the container ship fault.

        in fact, a Mol Comfort barn carries goods for up to 100500 recipients, when all the goods are intended for a single addressee - this is the exception rather than the rule. And the fact that “the tone of the article implies” is not to be forgotten about the level of competence and objectivity of modern media =)) Even if only one was intended for the CAC from the entire batch of containers (with footcloths), the lord of the journalist’s office would declare the whole load with arms. In the same way as the purchase of a dozen firecrackers by an employee of the Syrian embassy in Moscow - to inflate the latest air defense complex to Assad =)) For what’s the main thing?

        Where did you get these numbers we are talking about 4500 containers, why did you get that they are all loaded exclusively with weapons? Two-thirds of this cargo may well be medicines, food, uniforms, communications, tents and more. Where does the figure in 120000tons come from? One container can be filled with tents and weighs 3 tons of other cartridges and weigh 20, as you generally came up with the idea of ​​counting the maximum weight.

                  They don’t know how to analyze elementarily. No one answered - why the cargo is tens of thousands of tons, who is the recipient (port), how to carry (thousands of seven-hitters), which country could allocate such a number of weapons (note that they receive Soviet-Russian weapons) and why such a strange to no logic route.

          Line container ship. Destination, ports of Northern Europe. In Saudi Arabia would unload part of the cargo. We wondered what was in the containers. Part drowned, part afloat. Cargo and ship are insured. Insurers work with serious clubs with inspectors, emergency commissioners with extensive experience and international authority. They will put everything on the shelves and get to the bottom of the truth. In addition, the vessel has been operating for 5 years and has clearly passed not only an annual survey, but also a class. Sailors know what it means to present a ship to class.

          In addition, the Israeli television channel 9TV reported that it was an American weapon delivered by the Americans under the Hamas flags. If this is true, then this is the second unsuccessful attempt by the United States to supply weapons to the militants.

          Not reported (you can believe me). The Hamas flag is so different, and not like Hezbollah (including color and inscriptions - that only a complete ram can make a mistake.
          I do not believe.

    I doubt that a whole container ship of weapons, but part of the containers is quite real. And all the same, if even one container did not reach the forks, then many thanks to the one who did it. God, our intelligence, or gouging who made a mistake in loading or wiring the ship, etc.

      So I (after re-reading) the same question drew! Well, a couple - a trio of containers with rags and other "lightweight" can swim for a week, until everything is saturated with water, but then the rest should drown within a day. Or is there a wooden weapon? And, probably, rubber women were sent to the militants (completely ready for use)! Then this “load” will be confused for an honest time!
      I'd like to shake the "hand of the Lord." Clean work!

    Tokyo Mitsui OSK Lines, Ltd (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) updates the status of the MOL Comfort container ship from 23:00 p.m. JST (18:00 p.m. Dubai time) June 24, 2013. The vessel was unable to continue sailing under its own power from June 17, since the hull fracture was in 2 parts while it is currently on the shore of the Indian Ocean.

    Vessel
    bow and tail drift near 15'25 "N 67'53" E and 13'48 "N 64'50" E, respectively, in the east-north-east direction. The weather forecast for the site is still unfavorable.
    Containers
    Some of the containers were lost, but most of the cargo confirmed that on board the bow and stern.
    Rescue Cargo and Hulls
    We signed a contract with the company and rescue go to save the cargo and the hulls. One patrol boat and three tugboats arrived at the site on June 24. Only five boats, including another boat, which is expected to arrive on June 26 will prepare for rescue.
    Oil leak
    We have confirmed that there is no oil film around the vessel.http: //www.mol.co.jp/en/pr/2013/13041.html
    Not drowned. Hero set aside.

    It looks like a journalistic duck. On the Mitsui OSK Lines website, the incident date is June 17th. It's been a week already. Then they did not say anything about the mass supply of weapons. Moreover, the Singapore – Jeddah flight itself. If there is a weapon, then why should it be brought from Singapore (!!) to Saudi Arabia? And from Saudi Arabia to Syria must pass Iraq and Jordan. There is the southern region of Syria, and the fighting and the opposition seem to be in the north. Wouldn't it be logical then to transport through the Mediterranean Sea? Something doesn’t add up here ...

      Saudi Arabia has a large common border with Iraq, and the north of Iraq abuts against Turkey, the Syrian border in the west to the very north. So you can directly import weapons from Iraq to northern Syria.
