The aircraft carrier sank one plane

The aircraft carrier sank one plane
Bomber Security



10 August 1938, the crew of our Security Council sank the Japanese aircraft carrier.

This история so incredible that many consider it a fake. Neither before this episode, nor after it, there was no case for a single plane to sink an aircraft carrier. Meanwhile, this incident took place, and the pilot who committed this feat was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union.
The name of this pilot was Timofey Timofeevich Khryukin. He ended his life with the rank of Colonel General aviation and in the post of deputy commander of the USSR Air Force, and then he was the leader of one of the groups of Soviet pilots who assisted China in the fight against the Japanese invaders. By that time, Spain was behind his shoulders, and the Order of the Battle Red Banner was on his chest.



By the spring of 1938, the sky in China had become safer, since our bombers had bombed almost all Japanese airfields over the winter. 25 January 1938. A group of 25 SS bombers struck the airfield in Nanjing. 23 February 1938 r, captain Fyodor Polynin led a group of 28 SBs in a raid on Hsin-Chu airbase, located on the then Japanese island of Taiwan. The 28 SS bombers dropped bombs on the 280 air base and returned without a loss to the airfield in Hankow after spending more than seven hours in the air. As a result of a raid by Soviet pilots, 40 aircraft were destroyed at the airfield, a lot of aircraft in containers, hangars and a three-year fuel reserve.

However, in June, when the division of Polynin was replaced by a new bomber air group, headed by Khryukin, our bombers began to be attacked by Japanese fighters I-96. So in those years we used to designate the Japanese carrier-based fighter 九六 式 艦上 戦 闘 機 (Mitsubishi A5M), now better known as A5M. These planes were sea, deck. It has been suggested that the Japanese aircraft carrier is based somewhere nearby. Soon, this assumption was confirmed: one such aircraft, being fired by our air gunner, made an emergency landing on the territory controlled by the Chinese, and the pilot was captured. During his interrogation, it turned out that the 96 based on the Yamato-Maru aircraft carrier was a cargo steamer converted into an auxiliary aircraft carrier with a displacement of 9656 tons, built in Italy in 1915 under the name Giuseppe Verdi. In 1920, it was bought by Japan. The steamer was cut off the pipes, carrying out the chimney to the starboard side, and a wooden deck that served as a runway was built over its hull. The body of the aircraft carrier was strengthened, and to improve stability on it installed boolean naddelki. As an anti-aircraft armament on the Yamato-Maru were installed six twin 13,2-mm machine guns Gochissa. 31 May 1923, the auxiliary aircraft carrier "Yamato-Maru" joined the ... Japanese ground forces. His planes were supposed to support the troops of the imperial army in the theaters of operations, poorly equipped with airfields. During the period from 14 June to 28 July 1938 of the Yangtze River sunk 49 Japanese ships, but the aircraft carrier could not be detected: the airbase appeared here and there, cleverly camouflaged, snuggled to the coast, hid in the bays, and our pilots could not see it . Sometimes the scouts managed to detect the aircraft carrier, but the group of bombers that took off on the trail of aerial reconnaissance did not find anything, only cliffs and the sea that was hazy, a maze of islands and bays for hundreds of kilometers ... However, Timofey Khryukin did not give up thinking of finding a Japanese aircraft carrier.

Two more months passed, but the Yamato-Maru remained enchanted by the invisible ship. Then one day Timofey Khryukin, together with his co-driver Ivan Selivanov, was patrolling at high altitude above the Yangtze riverbed. At that time, our aircraft had full air supremacy over the Yangtze, and not a single ship was visible on the river, and the small craft, noticing a flying bomber, were hastily pressed to the shore. And suddenly Khryukin and Selivanov simultaneously saw in the deaf bay, tightened by camouflage nets, the aircraft carrier "Yamato-Maru". The wind blew from the shore, and a mist of fog obscured the ship, slowly retreating into the sea. Without losing a second, the Security Council went on the attack. Ivan gave an amendment. Timofey turned the car around and felt the bombs fly down. On the second run, Khryukin saw that on the Yamato-Maru, near the pipe itself, a column of black smoke shot up, carved by bright tongues of flame. The second bomb fell at the side, exploded in the water, below the waterline, and at the same time, as if on cue, the barrage ceased. The lone last stream of tracer bullets slowly rose into the air, and everything broke off. The aircraft carrier began to roll on the port side.
The plane dropped the last bombs and lay down on the course. The perishing aircraft carrier lay on its side and resembled a huge turtle crawling out of the water. The pilots did not see his last moments ..

Two fighters were sent to reconnaissance from the airfield. The pilots returned and reported - the airbag turned upside down and sank.
For sinking of the Japanese aircraft carrier Timofey Timofeevich Khryukin and his navigator Ivan Pavlovich Selivanov received the title Hero of the Soviet Union.

      No, this is the SB, the nose, at least certainly the SB. Although when you consider that the Ar-2 chtlot is a modification of the SB, and they have the same chief designer (Arkhangelsk), the similarity of these aircraft is understandable.

    This case was described by Korolkov in the novel “Kio ku mitsu”, and by Maxim Kalashnikov “The Broken Sword of the Empire”.
    According to opponents of the version of the sinking of the Japanese aircraft carrier Yamato-maru by the crew of Khryukin, this is refuted by the following facts:
    In the Japanese Imperial Navy in 1938 there was no aircraft carrier with the name "Yamato-maru".
    There is no data on the sinking in 1938 of any Japanese aircraft carrier ship on the Yellow River, Yangtze River and generally off the coast of China.
    The performance characteristics of the SB aircraft did not allow him to carry air bombs with sufficient power to sink a large ship, which should be an aircraft carrier, by a single aircraft.
    The sinking of a Japanese ship named “Yamato-maru” was announced on 13 on September 1943 by the USS Snook (SS-279).
    As an alternative to explaining the appearance of the story of the sinking of the aircraft carrier Khryukin’s crew on the river in 1938, some sources suggest the following options:
    Khryukin’s crew did not strike at the Imperial Navy aircraft carrier, but at the aircraft carrier of the Imperial Army. Such ships really existed, since the airfield network was not sufficiently developed in the combat zones in South China, and the Japanese "land" aviation was forced to use such floating airfields.
    Khryukin’s crew did not strike at an aircraft carrier, but at a transport ship carrying aircraft. Mention is made of a cargo steamer with a displacement of 9500 tons, built in 1915 in Italy, bought by a Japanese shipping company and called the Yamato-maru.
    Khryukin’s crew hit a seaplane carrier barge.
    To date, this fact is controversial, possibly related to the ideological coverage of the actions of our aviation in China, but I want to believe that this event happened as described in the article. Our aviation at that time had a big battle mushroom accumulated in Spain, but we will always have opponents in any matter!

      And to be honest, I was surprised by such coherence of different branches of the armed forces back in World War II. Well, the aircraft attached to the ground forces, this is understandable. Well, river boats and monitors attached to the army. But an aircraft carrier / aircraft carrier barge / floating seaplane base with an air division that works in the interests of the land army in direct interaction with it ... This is what should be the level of coordination of actions in pre-computer time.

      No Yamato-maru on Japanese fleet listings ever existed

      I affirm

      The prefix -Maru (trans. "Circle") is the traditional name for Japanese CARGO SHIPS. No Japanese Navy warship EVER had the prefix "maru" in its name

      Finally, what to do a real aircraft carrier on the river. The yellow river?

      (in reality, this case was, but everything is distorted there - a floating airdrome from a converted vehicle was sunk - The Japanese used such designs in the depths of mainland China, where there was a lot of tension with airfields. It is pointless to look for Yamato-maru in the lists of the Imperial Navy - he hung on the balance of the army. And in general, calling it an "aircraft carrier" is not entirely correct - a small low-speed barge, nothing like "Akagi" or "Zuikaku")

        I don’t know how in the 30s, but during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, the auxiliary cruisers of the Japanese wore the prefix "maru". For example, Shinano-Maru, who was the first to discover Rozhdestvensky's squadron at Tsushima.

          auxiliary cruisers of the Japanese carried the prefix "maru".

          What are we talking about!

          Auxiliary cruisers - recruited civilian steamboats with a pair of mounted cannons

          Shinano Maru - made flights along the route Yokohama - Seattle, Yokohama - Sydney, then was recruited in the interests of the Navy, received 2 152 mm guns - and was used as a scout. It is useless to compare with the Aurora cruiser - in spite of the similar name, these are closely dissimilar ships

        Naturally, Maru. He was not renamed. And he could not be in the lists of the fleet (if you mean the Navy). And what is the fine line between a floating airfield and an aircraft carrier? In speed of movement? In the area of ​​action? In the quantitative composition of the air group, in the training of pilots? This is the thirties, and not the forties, and therefore it is unlike the aforementioned aircraft carriers (or floating airfields, if you like) - it’s also a converted cargo ship. But real planes took off from him, not civilian ones, I note.

    Fake of pure water. As well as 28 "Panfilov heroes". 1) No Yamato-maru in the lists of the Japanese fleet has ever existed 2) "maru" is the ending for cargo ships in Japan, but not for combat
    History is a lie from beginning to end. It would be better to remember about the real exploits. GOOD them enough



    Well, what to do? there are not many connections everywhere, especially after the war they clipped that Mama Do not Cry

    in one of the topics, for example, Lugansk was reminded

    On September 14, 1942, Captain Lugansky launched a LaGG-3 eight against a superior enemy force, covering the crossing of the Volga for the 13th Guards Rifle Division. He went on a rapprochement with the leader of the Me-109 group. The German tried to get away from the collision, but Lugansky hit the stabilizer of the Messerschmitt with a screw and the enemy plane lost control and went to the ground.


    he was a good pilot, he didn’t hear anything bad about him, but did he write his memoirs alone ?? or were there proofreaders?

    But the fake of this story is that from August 42nd to May 43rd, 270 IAP? where he served Lugansk was in the rear for the reformation. The regiment did not fight in September 42nd, and the enemy's downed aircraft, respectively, also do not appear.

    the attempt to delve into the history of the Second World War also recalls a fight between supporters Pokryshkin and Rechkalov. Trying to get to the truth, but unable to come to anything

    In a word, the events of the 30s and the Second World War itself left a lot of blank spots and fraud

      229 IAD, which included 270 IAP was withdrawn, but as a result of its location near the Stalingrad massacre, it could be involved, given the severity of the situation, and even more to attract experienced pilots, and so it happened I read the quote ---- at the front headquarters it was to him in September 1942 year it was ordered to cover the crossing of the Volga. Cover it at any cost, under the threat of a tribunal - and if you stick to this order and a more thorough one, 227 (I hope you don't need to mention what order), then even from near Leningrad you will come running, you sit in the "donkey" skinned and go into battle, there at least the opportunity to survive, and so it's not even a penal battalion but in the "expense", you whip the topic?

    I will add Kibalchish, Timofei Khryukin received the GSSR in 1939 for the successful actions of his air division by the Buchi commander of the squadron and then the SB air group as part of military experts in China, having made about 100 sorties to the Japanese positions without LOSS, the Soviet bombers stopped the Japanese army as a result heavy losses both in manpower (destruction of dams on the river Huanghe) and the bombing of ports in which a lot of transports were swarming including carriers of aviation equipment, aircraft carriers in the army grouping of the emperor was not available, mr aviation did not provide assistance to the army, it had other tasks

In fact, such an inaccuracy catastrophically devalues ​​the feat of the Hero of the Soviet Union twice? And to call such a fake unproven can only truly fake character.

        Of course

        An aircraft carrier in an air defense order (AUG) is a toughie, especially during the WWII. Such a victory is worth a lot.

        The fact that the Soviet pilots drowned on the river is some kind of nonsense. A lot of noise from nothing. It would be better to remember the raid on Formosa - this is a real feat

        I don’t know what FAKE is, but I should read AWARD SHEETS for which the recipient is awarded. So in the award sheet in black and white (in Russian) - I quote--
        T. Khryukin became the hero of the Soviet Union on February 22, 1939. The decree referred only to "exemplary performance of command assignments." Khryukin performed these "tasks" in China, where he arrived in the spring of 1938 with the rank of captain at the rear airfield of Lanzhou. A large air base was created there, on which SB planes distilled from the Irkutsk aircraft factory through Mongolia, the Gobi desert. Khryukin led the bomber group, replacing F. Polynin
        WHERE ARE THE CARRIER ???????? read the statute STAR HERO OF THE SOVIET UNION, for a rusty trough, no one under any circumstances submitted to the GSS,
        so hurray to the patriots to get the foam out of the mouth you should familiarize yourself with the material in detail, and in addition to the above, read what Zhavornkov told the 51 MTAP pilots to destroy Slesien and others like that (total tonnage of 29 tons) -read, read, that henceforth there was no way to applaud unverified data

                Well, it’s immediately clear that we are talking about a transport steamer (auxiliary cruiser). The river Yamato-maru was most likely with a continuous flight deck - a barge or something like that.

    During the Spanish war, the future General Ostryakov also nearly sank the Germania on the SB :) (Deutschland is a pocket battleship), which sat on the bottom, but it was shallow there. When Hitler found out about this, he demanded to rename the pickpocket. Germany cannot drown.
    Renamed, it seems, in "Luttsov". Ironically, "Luttsov" was sunk by our bombers on April 30.04.1945, XNUMX ... on the day of Hitler's self-destruction.
    Not an isolated case. In Sevastopol, the longest street is General Ostryakov Ave. into which st. General Khryukin. It's a coincidence. :)

      You're not right. At that time (May 29, 1937) on the roads of Ibiza Island (now the famous Ibiza), it was attacked by two republican planes, received two bombing hits with 50 kg bombs. A seaplane was destroyed, 19 people were killed (23 according to other sources), 81 were injured, of whom four died later. There is no evidence that he sank to the bottom.

      The renaming of "Deutschland" into "Lutzow", which took place on 25.01.40, was not connected with the civil war in Spain, because the 2nd World War was already underway. The reason was different: on 17.12.39 the crew sank the same type "Graf Spee", which was blocked by the British fleet in the Uruguayan port of Montevideo. After that Hitler ordered to rename "Deutschland" to "Lutzow", fearing that the ship named after Vaterland would share the fate of "Count Spee".

      Again, you are wrong. In April 1945 "Luttsov" was in Swinemunde. In the middle of the month, he was attacked by the English Lancasters. Close explosions of 5,5-ton bombs (there were no direct hits) caused such damage to the ship that its hull looked like a colander and gradually filled with water. "Lyuttsov" sat down at a shallow depth. His guns continued to take part in defensive battles against Soviet troops.
      On May 4, 1945, when the Germans left Swinemunde, the Lutzow was blown up by the team; the case is completely burnt out. In the spring of 1946, Soviet rescuers raised the ship, and on September 26, he was even enlisted in the USSR Navy. However, due to the impossibility of restoration, the former Deutschland - Lutzov was sunk in the central part of the Baltic Sea on July 22, 1947 after several high-explosive bombs were detonated on it.

    Mmm ... For the first time in my life I hear about such an episode of the Sino-Japanese War. Of course, I don’t undertake to deny something at once, in the end there is very little reliable information about it ... But for a person who is at least a little familiar with the history of the Imperial Navy, all this looks a bit unrealistic. If we discard the fact that a ship of this class with the same name did not exist, then still there are many inconsistencies.

    Well, the most obvious discrepancy is that the author writes Yamato-Maru to the Imperial Army, but claims that A5M was used from him, which were used by naval aviation. In the context of Japan, this is simply not possible.

    It is true that the Imperial Army had its own aircraft carriers. But first of all, they were not even completely aircraft carriers, because they had army aircraft operating and they could not sit back on deck. But the first ship of this class, Akitsu-Maru, was built only in 1942.

    Well, we can also say that the name Yamato-Maru does not correspond to the traditions of the name of the ships of the Imperial Navy. The province names for the aircraft carrier, in fact, Yamato is the name of a historical province in Japan, were only allowed after 1943.

    In short, Khryukin undoubtedly deserves admiration, he is already a hero, there is no need to record anything absolutely fantastic on his account.

    The prefix "Maru" means that this is a military transport, but this certainly does not detract from the feat of the pilot, I am sure he would have gone on the attack and on a real aircraft carrier
