Day of Military Glory of Russia: The defeat of the Turkish squadron at Cape Sinop in 1853

54
December 1, Russia celebrates one of the days of military glory. This is the day when the Russian squadron under the command of the famous naval commander Pavel Stepanovich Nakhimov in 1853 inflicted a crushing defeat on the Turkish squadron. In just a few hours navy the union of the Ottoman Empire was virtually completely destroyed. In the military history the victory of the Russian squadron under the leadership of PS Nakhimov over the Turks entered as the last major battle of the sailing fleets.


Day of Military Glory of Russia: The defeat of the Turkish squadron at Cape Sinop in 1853


The official date of the Battle of Sinop is considered to be 30 November, but the day of the military glory of Russia was chosen the day of December 1.

A remarkable fact of the defeat of the Turkish fleet at Cape Sinop can be considered the fact that Western countries (Britain and France) strongly condemned the actions of the Nakhimov squadron, calling the battle itself not a battle, but a "massacre." And so far in foreign sources, the authors of which call them historical, the term “Sinop massacre” occurs many times more often than the term “Sinop battle”. This is something of the modern rhetoric of Western countries, when the term "disproportionate use of force" is used, as if the West itself in wars certainly follows "proportions" ... At the same time, it is not commented on in Western sources, but what was disproportionate?

The following forces were involved in the Battle of Sinop from the Russian side: 6 battleships, 2 frigate, 3 steamer, more 700 ship guns.

The Turkish side had the following naval forces: 7 frigates, 3 corvette, 2 steamer, 2 transport ships with armaments, about 480 naval guns and more 44 guns were placed on coastal batteries.

The battle lasted about three hours, after which it turned out that the Turkish squadron ceased to exist. Some time later, the Russian squadron suppressed the centers of coastal resistance of the Turks, without losing a single ship in the end.



The outcome of the battle from the Turkish side: about three thousand killed and wounded. 200 people, including Commander Osman Pasha, were captured;

from the Russian side: 37 dead and 233 injured.

It should be noted that Osman Pasha Nakhimov saved his life (this is about the "massacre"). Until 1856, the leader of the defeated squadron lived in Russia - in Odessa, after which he returned to the Ottoman Empire.

After the defeat of the Turks at Cape Sinop, the Russian fleet became the de facto master on the Black Sea, with which the "partners" from Paris and London could not accept.

      The Russian fleet became the master of the Black Sea a little earlier, in the time of Ushakov! In the Battle of Sinop, he simply confirmed this status!

      And as for the “massacre” and other heresy of the naughty Saxons, it would not hurt them to remember how many of their “advisers” were at that moment on the Turkish squadron and how it helped the Turks!

        So from here and the eternal cries accused. No wonder. Let them call it at least a massacre, at least a massacre. Hence the glory of Nakhimov and the Russian sailors will not fade. But to all of them the military indelible shame.

      And here is how events developed further.
      At the beginning of the war, the Russian fleet managed to win a major victory over the Turkish in Sinop Bay. However, after the Allies entered the war, the situation changed. In the course of the ensuing hostilities, the Allies succeeded, using the technological backwardness of the Russian army and navy, to successfully land an airborne corps in the Crimea, inflict a number of defeats on the Russian army and capture Sevastopol, the main base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, after a year-long siege. At the same time, the allied landing in Kamchatka failed. On the Caucasian front, Russian forces managed to inflict a series of defeats on the Turkish army and capture Kars. However, diplomatic isolation forced Russia to capitulate. The Paris Peace Treaty, signed in 1856, demanded that Russia cede the Ottoman Empire to southern Bessarabia and the mouth of the Danube River. The neutralization of the Black Sea was proclaimed.

Have you lost the Crimean War? Lost. You didn’t like the fact that you were reminded of the truth? Or did you not like the prospects, which are looming by analogy?
          In any case, insulting a person is not beautiful. It is even less beautiful to do it under a female nickname.

              For me, “maydown” is an insult, I think for you too, because it is in that sense that you used this word. As for the female nickname, I’ll try to explain. In any case, insults do not color the person who inflicts them, but, in my opinion, an insulting woman looks especially ugly. Maybe because, in my understanding, a woman is the personification of beauty and when she offends someone, a contrast is very unpleasant for me personally.

              As for the story, I have no reason to doubt your awareness. However, you still haven’t explained what you see as “caring”. Is it really to remember defeats? Here I strongly disagree. You must remember and know your defeats no worse than victories. And I remember that in order to level the results of the Crimean War, Russia took almost twenty years, I know and remember that the hero of the Sinop battle P.S. Nakhimov died in less than two years during the same, unconditionally lost war, and not I'm going to forget about it myself and do not recommend it to others. Already if only because you need to know who, on occasion, you can present an account and for what.

              I apologize once again for engaging in a polemic that does not concern me personally.

        By the way, back to the question of allies. In my opinion, the situation is very similar to the modern one. The Naglosaks sailed and supported Turkey and stood up for it when the Turks strongly buried on all fronts. "Friend" of Russia - France, decided to just take revenge for 1812. Another "friend" - Austria, Russia's ally in the "Holy Alliance" in 1848 requested the help of Nicholas I in the suppression of the Hungarian uprising, assistance was provided. In gratitude, Austria joined the alliance against Russia in the Crimean campaign. When, despite the heroism of the Russian soldier, the "ruling elite" did everything to lose the war, the "control shot" was also made by Prussia, threatening to enter the war on the side of the coalition. Russia capitulated. Paragraph ... Curtain!

          Only this time, the Russian Navy is not technically backward, and the general level of the Russian Armed Forces is higher than that of the Russian Empire at that time relative to other empires. But the same problem in the economy.

          And one more bonus: the fall of Russia will not be very beneficial for China, since Russia is not an economic rival for the PRC, while politically and militarily it acts as a lightning rod of NATO aggression.

          So the situation is not quite equivalent, on the eve of the Crimean War everything was sadder.

        We lost the war primarily because of the vile betrayal of the Austrians - they did not enter the war, but pulled the entire army to our border - and half of our army was forced to stand on the Austrian border in readiness to repel their attack.
        And here is how events developed further:
        Turkey spent so much on war that in 1858m defaulted and fell into complete economic dependence on its Anglo-French allies

        the impudent received as an answer sepoy uprising in India;
        In 1859, the Austrians received a symmetrical answer: when they fought with France, we pulled a military army to their border, and half of the Austrian army was also forced to remain inactive, standing on our border. Bottom line - Austria lost almost all Italian possessions.
        The turn of France came in 1871: when they fought with Prussia, Austria, recently defeated by Prussia and dreaming of revenge, could hit Prussia in the back. But ours again pulled the entire army to the Austrian border, and Austria did not dare to fight. Bottom line - France lost Alsace and Lorraine and paid a huge indemnity.

        Well, today our media have announced that the Turks our vessels at the Bosphorus are "mumbled" with all sorts of delays, etc. Zhirinovsky immediately congratulated Turkey on the loss of the Black Sea squadron ... I think that if they will cheer for a long time, we will carry out convoys. The Montreux Convention does not prohibit this. You can also ask Erdogan - "is it you or your officials? If you, as a state person, gave such an order, then this is a declaration of war, and if someone’s arbitrariness, then it’s time to punish the tricks ..."

      So the Russian Navy was the attacking side. And she, as you know, should have at least three-fold superiority over the defending side. The Russians did not have such an advantage. So the result is completely not expected by the Turks and their owners, the British, but the Russians achieved thanks to skill, military ingenuity and courage. So what by.

        and in your opinion, sofa strategist, it was necessary to proportionally reduce the number of guns? ship class? or "noble" attack half-strength? what nonsense, the advantage is very small, considering who attacked and who defended, and the battle was supported by coastal batteries. Yes, rather, the Turks had more chances to fight back.

    - Day of Military Glory - the defeat of the Turkish squadron at Sinop. Instead, our TV channels celebrate Khazanov’s birthday, the deputy noted. - Where is the main news? The great battle of Nakhimov. There is a movie. Give passages, lift the mood of our citizens. How we smashed the Turks - show all twelve wars!

    Speaking from the rostrum, Zhirinovskaya noted that Turkey has now begun to detain Russian vessels going through the Bosphorus for detailed verification.

    - But I would like to remind them that during the heyday of the USSR, they made a similar statement about the desire to close. And our then foreign minister, Gromyko, said that Russian ships would need only a few salvoes to pass into the Mediterranean. As a result of this, two more passes will soon appear in the Mediterranean. But alas, there will be no Istanbul. After these words, Turkey never again raised the issue of closing the Bosphorus for military ships of the USSR, the chairman of the LDPR said. He invited the Russian Foreign Ministry to make a similar statement.


    December 1 is the Day of Military Glory of Russia - Victory Day of the Russian squadron under the command of Vice Admiral Pavel Nakhimov over the Turkish squadron at Cape Sinop. The battle of Sinop entered history as the last major battle of sailing fleets. It took place on the Black Sea coast of Turkey 18 November 1853 year old style, 30 November new way. The Black Sea Fleet defeated the Turkish squadron in a few hours.

      Not really? belay 6 Russian sailing battleships and 2 frigates against 7 Turkish frigates and 3 corvettes. Moreover, 3 Russian battleships were the “top” 120-gun 1st-class LCs, and 3 were 84-guns.

      As for the guns, then the superiority was even more overwhelming.
      Not only did the Russian 120-gun launchers carry 36-pound guns and carronades on two decks as the main caliber, they also had 68-pound bomb guns (28 pieces) on the lower deck. Plus 24-pound carronades on the daggers.
      The 84-gunners carried cannons and carronades of the same caliber, but in smaller numbers: for example, there were only 68 bombing 8-pounds on them.

      The Turks, on the other hand, mainly had 24 pound guns.

        More important is another: about 480 ship guns and another 44 guns were located on coastal batteries.

        "I would prefer one gun on the shore to ten guns on the ship"(c) - the accuracy of shooting from the swinging deck is much closer, and the stone forts are much stronger than the wooden sides of the ship. So the battle is at hand near the coastal batteries almost doubled the strength of the Turks.

    It is also necessary to add that all European countries periodically (depending on who was Turkey’s ally at the moment: England, France, Germany, Austria-Hungary) supplied the Ottoman Empire with money, weapons and their military instructors and engineers.

    Zhirinovsky previously spoke about this, as always very emotionally.
    "In Russia, in the current conditions, it would be worth celebrating the next anniversary of the Sinop battle, when Vice Admiral Pavel Nakhimov defeated the Turkish squadron 300 kilometers from Sevastopol. This was stated at a meeting of the State Duma by its deputy chairman, LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
    - Day of Military Glory - the defeat of the Turkish squadron at Sinop. Instead, our TV channels celebrate Khazanov’s birthday, the deputy noted. - Where is the main news? The great battle of Nakhimov. There is a movie. Give passages, lift the mood of our citizens. How we smashed the Turks - show all twelve wars!

    Speaking from the rostrum, Zhirinovskaya noted that Turkey has now begun to detain Russian vessels going through the Bosphorus for detailed verification.

    - But I would like to remind them that during the heyday of the USSR, they made a similar statement about the desire to close. And our then Foreign Minister Gromyko said that for the passage in the Mediterranean, Russian ships will need only a few volleys of missiles. As a result of this, two more passes in the Mediterranean will soon appear. But alas, there will be no Istanbul. After these words, Turkey never again raised the issue of closing the Bosphorus for the warships of the USSR, the LDPR chairman said. He invited the Russian Foreign Ministry to make a similar statement. "

    "Swan song of the sail" - that's what the battle was called. Bomb guns put an end to sailing ships. France made conclusions from the defeat of the Turks and Russia did not (did not build armored ships), the result was the loss of the Black Sea Fleet. Conclusions need to be drawn from victories and from defeats, friends and foes.

    Sinope battle
    Anatoly Pimenov

    It was raining. Ottoman squadron
    Anxiously walked by sea to us.
    And flew hail cores
    On our brave ships ...

    Behind the loud exclamation of guns
    Nakhimov looked into the clouds,
    The water was thick with corpses
    That battle was not easy ...

    The sky blackened in heavy volleys
    Far from the glorious cities
    Frozen air, burning smell,
    Bound the Turkish sailors.

    Under volleys go to the bottom
    Frigates - our Turks are beating!
    Corvettes are beating, smoke is bred
    But the Turks are drowning and yelling ...

    Years pass, but in fact,
    Just long minutes
    And ours are on the gun
    Its enemies are not easy, difficult.

    We won! Among the prisoners
    I got the vice admiral ...
    Nakhimov is proud and sedate,
    I gave the order to go home!

    All the same, you will probably have to send troops into Syria. Here the Germans reached out: "Recall that the German government on December 1 approved the participation of the Bundeswehr in the mission to destroy the Daish * terrorist group.

    The mission of the German Armed Forces involves the participation of 1200 soldiers, several Tornado reconnaissance aircraft, as well as a combat frigate with the support of a French aircraft carrier. "

    Good afternoon.
    The other day, on a well-known site, EkhoMoskva read that there is nothing to oppose Russia with the Turkish F16, and if the United States throws the F22, it’s better not to take off.
    Knowing people tell me, really everything is so sad.
    Really our SU 27, 30, 35, Mig 29 are worse not only the 5th generation of F22 but also not the youngest F16?
    Have you had any training fights?

      Well ... in some ways they are right - single-engine fighters in Russia were sent for storage back in the early 90s. smile
      So there are really no analogues of the F-16 in the Russian Aerospace Forces.

    The story is really repeating itself. They always rock us when we either rearmament or in the period immediately after any cataclysm (enema of the early 80s, 90s). A fleet that can hit well is only being built (projects 22350, 11356), ships are being restored as a destroyer (956), new destroyers are still being designed. And at this very moment, the West decided to try to throw a noose on us and not let us do it. The most vile thing in this situation is that I (not boasting) studied the history well (without memorizing dates), but analyzing and sharing my thoughts with classmates. I said that the West will not give us rest and will try to eat us with giblets, as long as the material part of them is healthy (one US Navy of which is worth about 90 destroyers Arly Burke) they only laughed at me and turned their fingers around the weight. I don’t admire the West, but I can count and we are really weaker in the south, although the situation is changing and the West sees this and therefore tries to prey on the Bear when it is weaker ...

          I made a little mistake with the calibers - the Turks on the ships had guns larger than 24-pound (32-lb). And on the shore were 68 pounds.
          160 guns mounted on frigates and corvettes of the Turkish squadron could fire cores weighing 34 pounds and a diameter of 6 inches; 60 guns - cores weighing 29 pounds, a diameter of 5,79 inches; 80 guns - 20 pound cores, 4,95 inches in diameter; 124 guns - 14 pound cores with a diameter of 4,4 inches

          A total of 44 guns were listed on Sinop's coastal batteries. Among them were large, 68-pound caliber serf cannons firing 7,8-inch diameter cores and weighing 73,5 pounds. In addition, 18-pounder guns and others were installed here.

            Victory is victory. But in that situation, the Russian fleet was harder to lose than to win. Sailing ships themselves choose when, from what distance, under what tack to approach the enemy and open fire. however, the few guns of coastal batteries were at a much greater distance from the Russian ships than the same ships from the ships of the Turkish fleet. So the victory is more likely regular and not surprising than unexpected and talented.

    “The battle lasted about three hours ...” Historical chronicles indicate that four hours and fifty minutes passed from the first shot of the Turkish flagship Auni Allah until the end of the battle.
    "... the term" disproportionate use of force "is used, as if the West itself in wars certainly monitors" proportions. "And why only the West, when it is only a tool in the hands of the United States. And the whole modern world has seen how in the center of Europe in Yugoslavia, and in Iraq, Vietnam ... "
