Description: 23 Sep, 1941
It was the famous Stuka-ace Hans-Ulrich Rudel who deliverd the striking blow to Marat on the 23d of september. His gunner reported back to Rudel seconds after he released the bomb that the "ship is blowing up, you got her". The 1000kg bomb fell down the "steamtower" and exploded inside the ship. Rudel thus also destroyed a battleship in addition to the hundreds of tanks he hit in the war. Marat sank in shallow water but three out of her four main gun turrets were operational and she was used as an artillery battery.
