"Italians" against the Japanese

"Italians" against the Japanese

As the "Stalinist falcons" in 1934 dispersed the Japanese squadron

It is believed that the first conflict between the USSR and Japan occurred in 1938, in the area of ​​Lake Hassan. But even 80 years ago, the first provocations began, including at sea. Then the "Stalin's falcons" turned the whole naval squadron of Japan to flight.

Naval "roof" for poachers

History The question began in the years of the Civil War, when the Pacific Fleet, which was already bloodless during the Russo-Japanese War, ceased to exist. Him and Siberian flotilla (or rather, what was left of them) the white emigrants were taken to China and other countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Over the next decade, Japan, on the contrary, has increased the power of its navy to incredible sizes, having four aircraft carriers, 33 cruisers, ten battleships, 100 submarines, more than a hundred destroyers, hundreds of patrol, patrol and other military boats, not to mention the large auxiliary the navy.

Possessing such a truly enormous potential, the Japanese felt themselves in the Pacific Ocean and, in particular, in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, real masters. This was directly proportional to their more than vigorous economic activity in this region. After all, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin said that politics is a concentrated expression of the economy. So by the end of the 1920-s, Japan actually occupied Kamchatka and its coast, arranging its settlements in the form of bases, trading posts, fish-processing plants, warehouses and other points and areas of economic activity. All their vigorous work very accurately resembled the picture from the 1966 film of the year, “The Head of Chukotka”. Only instead of the Americans (according to the plot of the film) of the locals, the Itelmens, the Japanese were just drinking. Not only that the invaders barbarously caught all that fell into their trawls cleanly, violating all possible conventions and quotas. They also traded the Itelmens for the “fire water” of fur, rare medicinal herbs, and other gifts of nature. They cut down the forest, exterminated the otter, fur seals and other animals. Needless to say that all this vigorous activity was illegal and could not help but attract the attention of the Kremlin. Moreover, the Japanese fishing vessels in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk region were not one or two and not ten or twenty, but thousands! And, to put it bluntly, they simply plundered the USSR, scooping up resources for several million full-value gold rubles every year — which is tens of tons of gold!

There was nothing to resist such an open robbery to the republic, which had just recovered from three wars and revolutions. Several border patrol ships (PSCR) did not solve problems. Moreover, the fishery went under the strict protection ("roof") of the Imperial Navy of the Land of the Rising Sun. It is noteworthy that the Japanese military, while protecting poachers, at the same time actually “squeezed” their own fishing vessels, whose owners honestly bought licenses for legal fishing and crab from Soviet Russia. And forced them to leave the area of ​​fishing, in fact encouraging poaching.

Italian boats are flying ...

The point of this economic and environmental lawlessness was put by Comrade Stalin, who ordered to transfer to Vladivostok the 66 th separate squadron of twelve airplanes, which was based at that moment on one of the bases of the Black Sea Fleet in Crimea. It was commanded by the komesk Mikhail Parmichev. It is clear that the transfer was carried out in an atmosphere of extreme secrecy. It should also be added that this unit was not quite ordinary and differed favorably from other squadrons in that it "served" flying boats of the Italian Savoy C-62B, which is important for patrolling the sea. Moreover, the range of their flight was a thousand kilometers, and they developed a speed of up to two hundred km / h. "Savoys" could carry bombs, and in case of air combat, they had two twin machine guns.

After acclimatization and the necessary training flights in the fall of 1933, the squadron headed for Kamchatka. All this time, while the pilots were preparing to enter into a confrontation with poachers, the Japanese fishing flotillas continued to fish for seafood in an uncontrolled manner. It cannot be argued that the Soviet border guards absolutely let this process take its course. At any real possibility, our patrol ships carried out the same detention of violators with escorting poaching schooners and drawing up the protocols necessary in such cases.
And in the summer of 1934 of the year, Savoy’s crews finally had the opportunity to prove themselves in the fight against this quiet intervention. During the detention of the next fishing vessel, a Japanese combat squadron appeared on the horizon with clearly not peaceful intentions.

"Savoy" go on the attack

Aware of the seriousness of the current situation, they sent a radiogram to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky from the border boat, which carried out the arrest, from where, on an urgent basis, reinforcements of three ships sailed into the sea. The PSCRs that came to the rescue already approached the enemy at a distance of an artillery shot ... And then an incredible thing happened: one of the Japanese destroyers signaled our border guard ships ... to follow him. Neither more nor less. And it is in our territorial waters. Apparently, having been convinced of the fire superiority of their squadron, the samurai believed in their own impunity and finally became impudent, which turned their heads and moved them to capture our ships. Even a person who was not familiar with the law of the sea could not help but understand that this was already a direct violation of all international agreements and laws. And simply speaking - piracy.

And here, at the most tense moment, our Savoy appeared in the sky, which had already been deployed to attack enemy destroyers. A moment later, they had already imitated the bombing of enemy ships. This caused a real panic in the slim ranks of the Japanese squadron. Having forgotten about the potential “prey” - the Soviet border guards, some samurai unanimously rushed where, others described the circles on the waves, fearing that, moving straight ahead, the ship was much more at risk of being bombarded. Moreover, seized by animal fear, Japanese sailors turned on ship sirens at full capacity, appealing for mercy. The fear of the unfortunate warrior was apparently so great that, fleeing towards neutral waters, they went down to the extreme, passing through the signalman: "Happy swimming!".

After this incident, the poaching "raids" on our territorial waters stopped abruptly. 66-I squadron did its important job, discarding violators to be thrust into an alien garden. “Don't open your mouth on someone else’s loaf,” says Russian proverbial wisdom. And in 1934, the "Stalin falcons" explained its meaning to the Japanese military. Then there were the lessons of Hassan and Khalkhin-Gol, which the Red Army taught the militarists. All this taken together, apparently, led to the fact that Japan was wary of entering into a full-fledged war with the USSR in the 1941 year. Well, as they say, having burnt on milk, you blow on the water.

    This is our whole Red, Soviet, and Russian army. When "we are right" and we can beat to defeat, then we are waiting for the team from Moscow. Until the scum is piled well and dumped in neutral waters. And the team - ALWAYS LATER. Even if we discard the bureaucracy of the passage of information in the headquarters, even today the mobile phone’s radio signal during a conversation with Kamchatka, or the North is slowed down for a couple of seconds ... And we are waiting.
    "The attack is a private matter for the commander." - the law on the British Navy (Valentin Pikul. "Requiem for the PQ - 17").
    Destruction of the initiative and legal insecurity of the command staff of the army and fleets is the scourge of the Russian army. Rulers and headquarters must defend the right of first-line officers the first start an attack. If an attack is made on a warrior of the Russian army, the answer MUST be exceeded, with a guarantee - DO NOT CRAKE ...! And the whole world should know this. Attacked Russia - get it. This will once and for all disaccustom the naughty to attack and they will "know the edge".
    The army and navy will have the opportunity to conduct a real training in combat conditions, while the rest will decrease in arrogance.

        For information:
        In September 1939, the Soviet and Japanese armies clashed on the Manchu-Mongol border, becoming participants in the little-known, but which had far-reaching consequences of the conflict. It was not just a border conflict - an undeclared war lasted from May to September 1939, and more than 100 soldiers, as well as 000 tanks and aircraft, took part in it. Between 1 and 000 people were killed or injured. In the decisive battle, which took place on August 30-000, 50, the Japanese were defeated.

    Well this, as it were, is not scary. I just would like to know about which PSKR the author was talking about? These were fast. Others, I think, were pre-revolutionary with steam engines (which still need to be bred) and this is a lot of time. Something tells me that the author is frankly lying.
    Perhaps the situation was similar, but there is a lot of pathos and "unspecified" data that cannot be verified.
    What are the Japanese destroyers, what are the Soviet PSKR ??? The experience of reading such creations says that with a probability close to 100% such tales are either complete fiction (to be honest, it’s a lie) or real facts but inflated journalism to the size of an elephant.

    As I have already mentioned, I had to read how "Stalin's falcons" sank the mythical Japanese aircraft carrier in the 30s. So I think. I don’t read another year or so how they melted half of their battleships ???

    So if this is a historical fact and not a scribble "for the needs of consumer goods" I would like to know the dates, the names of the ships. And not "sometime in the summer", "some destroyers", "some PSKR" ..... some sugary pink jelly and not an article.

      yes, the squadron was frightened by the aviation ... the battleship "Bismarck" was drowned only by the raid of four slender biplanes, but here ... the fact that they did not take it into account before and so dabbled in their fleet by the way characterizes the level of their brains, etc. ...
      about the same year (a little later) so that the Japs did not hover over northern Japan, there were demonstration flights of the TB-3 armada with chemical weapons and an airborne landing. if even one had been shot down, it would have been little to show, even considering that they were not nerve agents.
      The USSR Airborne Forces were also the most powerful.

    So if this is a historical fact and not a scribble

    The predatory fishing of the Japanese in 1933 was very active and was carried out by vessels of different tonnages: 17 floating fish canning factories, three crab processing plants, eight medium-displacement trawlers, as well as approximately 1000 small and medium fishing schooners. And this fishing was carried out under the constant guard of the forces of the Japanese Navy: two destroyer divisions, submarines of the RO-29-32 type, several flotillas armed with reconnaissance and patrol schooners, and also Japanese police ships.

      3 July 1934 g. Events suddenly began to develop rapidly, as in a well-prepared and thought-out scenario. It began with the fact that the border boat “Kit” in our territorial waters in the Bichevinka area detained a Japanese fishing schooner at the time it was removed by the crew of nets catching Zhupanovskaya herring. The boat "Kit" arrested her and escorted to Petropavlovsk to draw up the protocol. On the way to Cape Mayachny (near the entrance to Avacha Bay), a Japanese warship suddenly appeared, which appeared in our territorial waters, and, threatening to use military force, began to impede the arrest of the schooner.

      It is appropriate to mention the border boat “Kit” itself, the team and its legendary commander. The boat “Kit” arrived in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in the summer of 1929. It was commanded by an experienced sailor known to the whole Far East, Lieutenant N.S. Magalov. The team consisted of seven people. By 1934, the Kit crew had hundreds of detained Japanese poachers. Magalov knew perfectly the entire western and eastern coast of Kamchatka, masterfully masked his ship, set up ambushes in the most unexpected places, and always took poachers “in the act”. Often he drove his boat under sail, so that the sound of the engine did not betray his presence. He was a thunderstorm for border violators, for which he became one of the first border guards in the Soviet Union awarded the Order of the Red Star. It was a very high award at that time.

        ICT 23 November 2014 14: 58
        To help the boat "Kit" went PSKR (border patrol ship) "Borovsky". Suddenly, the second Japanese destroyer suddenly appeared, and they began to openly threaten the seizure of our combat border ships. On the main mast, the Japanese raised flag signals: "Follow us." Our sailors couldn’t allow this already. Everyone went into a drift and urgently reported events to the base. The base gave the answer - to drag out time, but do not enter into armed conflict. Two newly arrived PSKR "Kirov" and "Dzerzhinsky" were immediately sent to help. Between Kamchatka and Moscow, radio communication has intensely earned. The pilots played a combat alert and began to prepare seaplanes with air bombs for a combat flight.
        The Kirov and Dzerzhinsky, who had come to the conflict zone of the PSKR, had already caught five Japanese warships. The Japanese in their claims did not retreat and, threatening the induced naval artillery, demanded to follow them. The buildup of forces and the sudden appearance of Japanese destroyers all spoke of pre-planned actions. Explicitly preparing an armed provocation in the territorial waters of Kamchatka. It was impossible to drag out time indefinitely, and entering into open battle with significantly superior enemy forces threatened the destruction of our ships and crews. It is for this reason that the command post of the Kamchatka base gave the order not to use weapons, and our ships, in the smallest move, pretending to follow the Japanese destroyers. The Japanese surrounded our ships and brazenly began to demand an increase in travel. At the same time, an order was given to a seaplane link consisting of the crews of Mustygin, Makarov and Kuvshinnikov with a bomb load to fly into the conflict area with an order to simulate a bomb strike, in order to discourage the Japanese from the desire for provocation and invasion into the territorial waters of the Soviet Union.

        As Aleksei Vladimirovich recalled, “With the advent of our link, the Japanese warships, which did not have air defense, rushed to scamper in a fan in different directions. On flagpoles, they hastily began to raise other signals - “We wish you a happy sailing!” The impudence and hypocrisy of the Japanese amazed our border guards.
        The Savoys, repeatedly simulating air attacks, escorted Japanese ships until they left the territorial waters of Kamchatka. The destroyers, having developed a high speed, with each approach of the red-star planes, began to circulate frantically, giving alarming signals, as if begging for mercy. The schooner, which was the cause of the described conflict, was generally abandoned, and as a part of the escort of our ships was soon delivered to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and arrested. This was the last attempt by the Japanese to enter into open conflict with our border guards. Returning to Halaktyrka, the pilots found two more links ready for departure.

            and where such bias towards the author? bully
            anti-aircraft weapons were still extremely inefficient, and there was no fighter cover over Japanese ships.
            you don’t know these freaks at all ... except for this episode, in the period from 1906 to 1945 they simply didn’t let Russian / Soviet ships into the Ocean - when he reminded one of them about this, he met a crazy look from yellow eyes with the words “why do you need ? you know that we will drown you anyway ".. this conversation was in the late 80s.
            they are really untreated! ... even having received lyule in 1945, they preferred to separately fall into the arms of those who, during the last 6 months of the war, destroyed their civilian population by bombing cities but did not surrender to the USSR, the heir to the Russian Empire - the only country that could in the foreseeable future (within 2 months) capture Japanese islands through narrow straits, just as quickly as before / after disarming Japan from bacteriological weapons, selected Japanese units were defeated by the Soviet Army in Manchuria, Sakhalin, Korea and the Kuril Islands.
            By the way, then it was much more dangerous than nuclear (before the appearance of the 1MT class and MIRV)
            this is the psychology of fanatics, not real men — they behaved like real chain mongrel, which the United States, Great Britain and Holland had for half a century before and half a century after, fighting for their interests against the Russian Empire, the USSR and China. In 1941 it was broken from the chain - then rushed back to the booth to the owners. fed by propaganda of the Russo-Japanese War and Tsushima, these creatures fell for the mercy of those who had just destroyed their wives, mothers, the elderly and children ... if only this propaganda in their brains and hearts had not been rubbed exactly the opposite (and even worse) actually changed state of things (occupation of Tokyo SA / by Russians) ...
            so there were no embellishments with "we wish you a happy voyage", etc. in this case.
            if they were treated, they would take away from them Stalin Hokkaido, about 50 years old, as he wanted - then they would generally forget to look at the North. all the more so since they once kicked the Cossacks from its northern part and it was never drawn on any Japanese map until the 19th century.

            AUTHOR - many thanks for the article. drinks

    But I don’t know a single "Kit" border boat

    Unfortunately, there are practically no materials on the "Kit" boat. In the book of Captain 1st Rank V.D. Yunoshev. "We are in a proud wake formation ..." it is indicated that the boat was received from the Kamchatka Joint Stock Company in 1929. The photo will say little, but according to the stories of Sergei Dikovsky (see "Adventures of the boat" Brave ") there was an internal combustion engine on it, and the ship was decommissioned somewhere in 1936-1937.

    there seems to be a photo there, but I need to register there, as I understand it

    They did the right thing. The border guards should have at hand all the available weapons of a rising enemy so that no one would ever think of violating the sovereignty of RUSSIA.

    Well, I was just focusing on your message. And in it is "Borovsky".

    Well, if he was so little in the ranks, then it is clear that he is not in the reference books. And there was also such a practice when a boat in civilian life has the name "Kit" (for example) and is listed under a number in service. And it can be difficult to trace this connection. Anyway. About the boat, I said that I simply did not see any mentions about it in reference books. In fact, he may have been.
    And on the forum of border guards, yes - there was a registration. Once stuck, and no longer tried.

    Ohhh, thank you so much. I read the article. Now that seems to be true. No Hollywood and mythical watchdogs. Just described the work. At the same time, there is no half-battle described here in the biography, although Japanese warships present in the region are mentioned.

    In principle, as expected. Something similar happened (the detention of poachers and the fight against them) but without these mythical embellishments.

      here in the article there is no Hollywood ... rather, the border guards have "political correctness".
      Do you know anything from the mass media about the seizure and retention of the arsenals of the Japanese Detachment 731 by Soviet (not American) commandos in August 1945? (well, unless, of course, to abstract from the film "Through the Gobi and Khingan") ...
      if it weren’t for them, it’s not known how many Americans would have been ill with a dog plague. wassat
      but 10 million would certainly fall into the ditches ... they don't joke with Anthrax. bully

      PS. if something does not converge with the boats, then by the way they could be others with the same name ...
