Rafailo revenge (battleship Empress Maria attacks the frigate Fazli-Allah in the battle of Sinope)
The film ”Revenge ”rafaelo”” is an interesting historical fact. In may 1828, the Russian frigate ” Raphael” in the sea met the Turkish squadron, released from the Bosphorus Strait, but due to the weak wind could not break away from the enemy and were surrounded. The Council officers decided to ”fight to the last drop of blood”, as required by Navy regulations. But the commander Semyon Mikhailovich of Strelnikov decided to surrender the ship without a fight to save the life of the crew. The flag was lowered and the ship surrendered to the Turks. Emperor Nicholas I to its Highest ordered in the case of the return of the frigate to burn it. ”Raphael” was renamed by the Turks in the ”Fazli-Allah” (”God-Given”) and is included in the composition of the Turkish fleet. During the Crimean War of 1853-1856 frigate ”Fazli-Allah” was destroyed in the battle of Sinop in November 1853, the battleship ”Empress Maria” under the command of Vice Admiral P. S. Nakhimov. By fate on the same ship was also the son of S. M. Stroinikova Lieutenant Alexander Strelnikov and participated in the destruction of the frigate, who previously commanded by his father. His report on the battle of Sinop to Emperor Nicholas I Pavel Stepanovich Nakhimov began with the words: ”Will Your Imperial Majesty has fulfilled the frigate ”Raphael” does not exist. A shame the Russian Navy washed away!”
