Details: The sources said the SSU’s SeaBaby USV hit the Samum near the entry to Sevastopol Bay.
The USV hit the rear right side of the vessel, causing significant damage, which resulted in the ship losing power.
The sources stated that the Russians had to tow the Samum away for repairs “with a significant tilt at the stern and listing to starboard”.
The SSU used an experimental model of USV capable of operating in a storm, using high waves for cover. The waves were 1.5-2 metres high at the time of the special operation.
