At 11.16 hours on 28 Aug 1943, U-302 fired a spread of four torpedoes at a Soviet convoy near Mona Island and observed one hit in the fore ship of the Dikson (Master O.Z. Filatov) after a running time of 2 minutes 56 seconds and saw the ship sinking after 12 minutes. All hands were rescued by the Soviet tug Severoles (No 18) and later transferred to the Soviet minesweeper T-906 (No 60).
The convoy designation is not known, but the escort consisted of the Soviet escort vessels T-906 (No 60) and SKR-16 (No 75), the latter had spotted two torpedo tracks but it was too late to avoid them.
