In early September 1941, Rahmansaari Island in Ladoga Lake was defended by a company of 122 men (three machine-guns, three mortars and one 45-mm cannon). Commander was Lt. 3. N. Slobodov.
On 5 September 1941 begun amphibious landing with "9 boats" covered by "two gunboats" and two other boats with machineguns.
It is known the exact class/type and number of Finnish vessels employed?
According to Soviet acccount two of the boats used for the landing were destroyed during this first phase.
Soviet Ladoga Flottilla reacted with gunboat "Bira" sub.chaser MO-206 and five MK-boats, bringing reinforcement of 200 men.
(it was day 6 or 7 September?)
MO-206 claimed sinking of three finnish boats and "several" others carrying troops.
By 8 September, Soviet situation worseded and supplies could not be delivered due Finnish ground artillery.
On 9 September, "two gunboats" and another boat with machinegun dispatched by Finnish.
Soviet units involved the above mentioned "Bira" and MO-206 but also the gunboat "Konstructor". Soviet ships failed to approach the shore due intense shelling.
By Setpember 10 the battle was over. Soviets suffered 103 killed, 30 other bodies found in water, 130 POW.
What are Finnish figures? also what are Finnish casualties?
Jurg Meister wrote of three Finnish units lost in the operation.
Details of these boats, and when/how they were lost (during the early landing or by MO-206 action?) are welcome.Финны потеряли 3 катера: LU 3, HI 24 и HI 7, при этом погиб 1 человек и двое получили ранения.
