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

8928 ratings | 4041888 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

Those Russian Guns were pointed directly at the USS Caron. That U.S. Navy Captain had a duty to defend his ship. He needs to be Court Marshalled.

I remember being told by my grandpa that stuff like this wasn't infrequent back then. He said that more than a few times Russian ships in the same port as ours would do uncomfortable passes. My favorite was one where he was on deck and a Russian cruiser went by almost as close as the one in the video, to where they could see all the guns on the ship aimed at theirs. When he said everything he emphasized that it was pretty literal, their deck was filled with sailors pointing machine guns at their ship yelling, and when they got their closest they opened their torpedo hatches. All of this while the Russian ship was leaving the port that they were heading into(yea they went out of their way to get right up to our ship lol). Not that my grandpa didn't say that we didn't do stuff like that either. One short funny story being that his captain was getting sick of "fishing boats" that were obviously spy ships tailing them, so when one of them failed to get out of the way when their destroyer was heading in it's direction his captain told the crew to "Run him over!", the little fishing boat barely getting out of the way before it almost capsized from the wake of the destroyer.

The Americans in waters near the USSR with music about the Soviet Union. During the cold war. This is not a provocation? This is provocation! But what the reaction of Russians? Ramming, showing discontent. Although they could easily drown their ship with all people and their music. Just ramming. And now Americans in comment section: "stupid Russians, they damaged themselves". I love American's stupidity) Actually you just lucky that the Russians military have a brain and responsibility for adequately answer to this bully.

All those who will help the Nazi authorities in Ukraine will be destroyed! RUSSIA is ready to repeat 2008 👌 (enforcing Saakashvili’s peace). There are space LASER military satellites on Russia's armament now ready to destroy ANY OBJECT ON THE PLANET every second! The United States is not capable of opposing the over-heavy Russian army!

The American rusty ship was trying to cowardly escape from the Russians, but this is impossible ... The Russian army and navy are the strongest in the world! This is an indisputable fact! RUSSIA is ready and can easily repeat 2008 and the aggressive Nazi Ukrainian government will soon be destroyed the same as the Nazi Saakashvili!

Here's a less scientific, or even fluid dynamics explanation that Russian ship appeared to ram and even partially go under the Caron: It PURPOSELY came way too close, it PURPOSELY turned and rammed the American vessel, and it did so with complete malice. It's the exact same reason Russian jets buzz our destroyers and carriers. Why we don't lob a few rounds from a 5" gun over their bow is beyond me. If they keep coming, maybe a hit or two will keep the next Russian ship at bay.

+Finally it's Ed Thanks. I studied English at the Soviet school 40 years ago and since then I just maintain the knowledge for travel and communication. As for Assad, he has no chemical weapons for a long time. This was confirmed by the OPCW during Obama's time. The motive of the lie is known: it is one of many provocations for the displacement of Assad and destabilization of the situation in Syria. America plays on the side of the Syrian opposition. And the opposition in Syria are thugs and murderers. There is no "peaceful" opposition. In my city of Tyumen already night. All the best to you !

+Юрий К. You know why they were there. You can be very happy that both the ships and the KGB vessel were not sunk to the bottom of the black sea. I think we both know that the Caron was not there by itself, Nor was there only two ships as stated. Russia still wants to believe they matter in the great scheme of things, They do not.

What a time to be in the Navy. Foreign ship comes inside of a 100 meters, uninvited and the flight deck is packed with spectators. Then you go to Facebook and see the "back in my day" comments. If that happened today the ship would have been in GQ hours before this happened. Complete with warning shots and the rest of the strike group closing in.
