It is the Netron Menya floating battery built out of the abandoned Sovietskaya Rossiya battleship.

You are absolutely right. Floating battery No 3 or "Ne tron' menya" (Don't touch me). Crew: 130 men. Armaments: 3 - 76-mm AA-guns, 4 - 37-mm AA-guns, 1 - 4-barrel machine-gun, 2 - machine-guns (Earlier were also 2 130-mm guns, but they were given to coastal defence). You can see hole from German bomb on the deck of battery. This bomb has killed the commander of this "ship". Photo from German reconnaissance plane - 2 weeks before the fall of Sevastopol. Crew already was fighting among the marines...

Your question, SiG I...

Thanks!

This thread seems to be the home of "impossible"-level questions, so not wanting to break this tradition I will ask you:
What was the last submarine lost by the Soviet Black Sea Fleet?

Good Luck!

Submarine which was lost during combat operations? Then L-6, missed near cape Tarhankut 11-21.04.44. But possibly you mean TS-2 (ex-Marsinul) which 20.02.45 was badly damaged in accident (torpedo explosion) and later was utilized.

No I actually meant the L-6.
I actally believed this would be a difficult question. Guess I was wrong :?
Back to you, RoW!

PS: The L-6 was probably sunk by the Ghiculescu gunboat and by the UJ 104 after a failed attack on the Alba Iulia transport ship.

This is picture of Soviet Komsomoletz type torpedo-boat. Series - 32 boats. Only one was built in 1940, others - from the end of 1944 and later. Do you know their only successful attack?

RoW, I suggest somewhat lighter question, or if very difficult with more hints on it, because otherwise this thread will be frozen for days. In my hypothetical turn I can post a question about a certain action of a Romanian ship that could not exist even in the Soviet or other countries' archives, not to speak of other published works.

Ouch... I didn't think what it is too difficult question. But I understand you, I also feel myself as in another world when read riddles in other sections. Then hint... I wrote what these torpedo-boats began their actions at the end of 1944. Only acting fleet during this peiod was Baltic fleet...
