USS Caron getting rammed by the Russians in the Black Sea - Feb 1988

9966 ratings | 4424345 views
In February 1988, Caron operating with Yorktown, entered Soviet 7 miles ) territorial waters limit in the Black Sea off the Crimean Peninsula. Under international law, this act could be permissible if the ship was progressing from one point in international waters to another point in international waters via the shortest course possible, but according to the Soviet Union, it was the right of the USSR to authorize or prohibit travel in selected areas within the 12 mile limit. The United States however did not recognize the Soviet's claim in this case. To prevent it from becoming accepted precedent, the US Navy claimed that it had sailed warships through such areas at regular intervals in the past, which we had, not just two years prior. On this occasion, Caron had onboard a ships signal exploitation spaces system, operated by a crew of 18 in support of the U.S. National Security Agency. This system was capable of recording data on Soviet defense radars and communications. In response, the Soviets deployed a destroyer and a Mirka II class light frigate as well as a KGB and "civilian" ships to intercept the U.S. ships. Several times, Soviet vessels obtained radar "lock" on the Caron and Yorktown. Both American ships maintained a constant course and speed throughout the incident. Eventually, the Soviets lightly rammed both ships. No significant damage resulted to any of the ships involved. Both US warships sent an account of the incident to the Commander in Chief of United States Naval Forces in Europe. The Caron reported at 13:20 local time, it was informed on channel 16 VHF by the Bezzavetny: "Soviet ships have orders to prevent violation of territorial waters, extreme measure is to strike your ship with one of ours."[1] The reply of the Caron was "I am engaged in innocent passage consistent with international law."[1] The Yorktown, in its report stated that on 9:56, local time, it was contacted by the Bezzavetny via channel 16 and told to leave Soviet territorial waters or "our ship is going to strike on yours."[1] Then, according to the report, the Bezzavetny came alongside port side of the Yorktown at 10:03 and bumped it by turning into the ship.[1] As for the music, take note that this was shot on VHS and back in 1988, when we did not have Youtube. The only people we thought would see this was friends and family, not a bunch of people from all over the world. No the music is not masking the screams from the crew on the USS Caron, so if you don't like it, there is a volume button - use it Also check out the video from the USS Yorktown at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SME4w037FgA This is the video that the Russian news showed on the 10th Anniversary - All I can say is I can't believe that the Russian people believed and animated version of what happened over the real tape. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dl_WNdiShs&list=FLq9THf99pIznRTXM7P8JIWw&index=54 Also the video the Russians did on the 25th anniversary - They asked me for an interview and I declined for the very reason I that I knew they would not portray it accurately and they didn't let me down http://www.tvc.ru/showspecrep.aspx?id=e1564dbe-d8e8-4ba2-a142-218db8a6e14c Here is the Russians account of what happened http://fishki.net/19391-stalnye-jajca-sovetskogo-flota-9-foto--3-video.html

Always wonder what kind of shit we did to the Russian Navy. This was a piss poor attempt by the Russians, coarse it is most of the time with Russians, I mean, it must be tough to watch the largest and most powerful Navy in history control the sea lanes.

Just wanted to clarify, the Russian Navy was bad ass at one time but now it's gone to shit. Those Russian sailors work their asses off for little money so I give em props.

The faster overtaking ship has to yield the right of way to the slower ship ahead. The consistent thing about all these is the Russians come from the rear at a faster speed and cause a conflict.

People make fun of Russian small ship here, they think that this is the Soviet Navy. But I want to upset you, this is a coast guard ship. If the real ship of the Soviet Navy with anti-ship missiles arrived to you, the Yankees would crap their pants and leave home. In reality, this ship could have been sunk several times, at least by anti-ship systems located on the coast, they have a huge radius.
Lambdadelta (1 month ago)
@Gabriel S. This would be a problem if the Russian fleet were as offensive as the United States and its aircraft carriers. The Russian fleet, though much weaker than the US fleet, is intended only to protect the country. For something more he simply does not have enough strength. In rare cases, Russia may deploy a pair of ships with cruise missiles for some anti-terrorist operation in Syria. What the US really should fear is the Russian submarine fleet. The US will be very sad to lose their expensive aircraft carriers from much cheaper cruise / ballistic anti-ship missiles. The aircraft carrier group has a very decent defense, but even it is not enough from a massive attack with a multitude of anti-ship missiles paired with submarines.
Gabriel S. (1 month ago)
Lambdadelta Russia can have the best navy in the world but it won't matter because all the russian ports that don't freeze over in winter are only accessible by sailing through nato held water. this is a major problem for russia and they know it.

Unwillingness to understand it is actually YOUR problem. Because you have problem with logic. And who is a troll? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_troll A troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion, whether for the troll's amusement or a specific gain. WoW!!! You are talking about yourself....

These situations can be avoided, if you are going to in Russian waters or airspace just give them a heads up. When you enter another's space , and they dont challenge you , you will keep getting closer and closer. Look at it the other way , Russia has a ship inside of US waters , now what ? Respect others space as you want them to respect your space.
