Italian submarine fates
Ships hit by Italian submarines
|Date of attack||26 Aug 1943||Time||0114|
|Fate||Sunk by submarine CB 4 (G.M. Armando Sibille)|
|Position of attack||45° 11'N, 33° 21'E|
|Complement||45 (45 dead, no survivors)|
|Notes||At 0114 hours, a Soviet submarine was sighted and attacked with two torpedoes (450mm) fired at a range of 400 metres. One hit under the conning tower and the submarine sank.|
This was the Soviet submarine SC-203 (Captain 3rd rank Vladimir Innokentyevich Nemchinov). There were no survivors and forty-five victims.
Her wreck was found in 1949. She was probably the submarine which attacked CB 1 on 23 August 1943, as tubes 1 and 4 were found empty.
