Terrorists fired on a Chinese freighter

On September 2, the Chinese embassy in Egypt reported that the Chinese cargo ship 31 August, which had been bombarded by terrorists, had successfully left the Suez Canal, mil.news.sina.com.cn writes today.


According to the Xinhua News Agency, the Cosco Asia container ship, flying the flag of Panamania, came under fire. The vessel was launched in 2007 year, load capacity 10 thousand tons, cost 1 billion yuan. Egyptian media reported that the attack was carried out on 31 in August at about 13 hours of the day. The attack was decisively stopped by the Egyptian military, three boats were arrested, armed with machine guns, the attackers were detained. “The terrorists shot at the ship, trying to threaten the ships passing through the canal and undermine the safety of the waterway,” said an Egyptian military source.

After the removal of President Mohammed Mursi from power, the country is once again engulfed in unrest. Egyptian authorities have increased security measures in the area. However, there is no certainty that the armed supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood organization will not continue attacks on ships sailing through the Suez Canal.

    It would be better to fire the Qatari tanker with LNG. It would be possible to bring down beer from Gazprom. In general, when the catavasia began in the Sinai, I suspected that this would happen. Indirectly, this is in our hands. repeat

        Judging by the video, they are shooting from the shore, aboard the ship. Perhaps they wanted to flood in the middle of the canal. Something of boats with terrorists whose detention the Egyptian military reports is not observed.

      Shoot your hand? Even allah-in-bars are not so dumb.
      This incident is the first call to China where its place is. Although the time was not chosen well, China can answer.

      So yes, but someone in this mess will now figure out who it is. Chaos, it is chaos in Africa. They wanted to let the "gin out of the bottle", here you go. And for Egypt, Suez is like Gazprom for us. Well, there are now army generals rage. Anyway, they themselves are to blame. You had to think with your head. when Mursi was supported.

    It seems to me that shooting in Suez is on hand to insurers, just like Somali pirates. Insurance rates will increase, and this, an additional loot in your pocket.

          I agree, Colleagues. I was somehow embarrassed by the photograph. Based on visual data, its width is at least 1/3 of the length of the Alexander Fadeev container ship, which I once worked on (I won’t talk about other vessels - the principle of architecture is different). Deadweight - about 6500 tons (I do not perceive the carrying capacity as a characteristic of a vessel very adequately. There are a lot of characteristics by which a specialist can assess the capabilities of a vessel. If anyone is interested, I’ll tell you. But, I’ve been distracted.) There are generally accepted proportions of the ratio of overall characteristics ships (with certain tolerances). Taking into account the tolerances, the deadweight of the steamer should be an order of magnitude greater. Actually DWT (Deadweight): 113900 tons. I will not dispute the data of other colleagues - they were obtained from different sources and from different regulated precipitation. The remaining data of the steamer coincide. Not to the chagrin of the author of the article - I am pleased to read most of the materials on this site. There are controversial opinions, there are interesting judgments, there is new information for me. Please, be somehow closer to reality in detail. And about the results of the shelling - I would not mind if the Chinese neighbors answered with an eye for an eye. I, a young sailor in the 70s, were somehow very patriotically tuned by our planes, chasing Orion from my steamboat. Then we did not give our own, we did not abandon our friends and did not betray our own. Maybe, I’m not right. My opinion is subjective.

      I don’t know what it gives out, but offhand containers with not fully loaded lie on the deck 5-6 tons.
      PS If Shto, then Volgo-Don on the Volga and Don is about 5000 tons.

    This is a great excuse for being in the Chinese Navy region.

    Judging by the flag on the video, the handiwork of radical Islamists is most likely an Alkaid. Looks like they make it clear do not panic inappropriately ... Maybe something valuable for the enemies of the Islamists was taken there?

    If P from a grenade launcher would be hollowed on a Russian ship, then I would revise my own widows about landing craft.
    I sprinkle ash on my head with huge handfuls and humiliatingly ask you to forgive the villain (me). winked
