Hello, friends! I am from Odessa, member of wreckdivingclub "Cousteau". This summer our club in coordination with Department of a underwater heritage of Ukraine investigated a place of accident of the cargoship Ungvar and torpedo boats Vigelia and Viforul.
The place of destruction of ships - near to port Ilyichevsk. New materials are received many, by means of a powerful hydrolocator of the lateral review and visual gaugings the general picture of accident is restored in details. Now we write the report. If someone from community is interesting, I can lay out some photos and review.

The request to everyone who can help!

Any materials on these three ships, including the photos given about staff and so on are necessary. How much I know, in Romania till now remember this shipwrecks, by that as your press wrote by 65 anniversary. We also now come into active contacts to a sea museum in Constance together to make this page of history more precisely and more clearly.

Our site and a forum www.divingwreck.com

Hi,

Wasn't it the site where the Hu cargo ship hit a mine, the Ro escorts rushed in to the rescue - and also hit mines. In the end another Hu cargo ship - captained by an old K.u.K. Navy hand - kept clear from the mayhem and fished out survivors from all three ships?

Bye,
Krisz

In the morning of Nov.9th 1941, Ungvar was en route from Sulina to Odessa with Tisza, escorted by the MTB's Viforul and Vijelia. Ungvar exploded, most probably hitting a mine.
34 people were lost : The CO of the german Donauflottille (Korvettenkaptain Friedrich Petzel), 5 officiers of his staff, 16 german AA gunners, 12 hungarian crewmen.
The cargo was lost : 141 tonns gasoline, 916 tonns of airplane bombs, 469 tonns of foods and 306 of AA ammunition.
