to map

16. September 1943

That day, the ship was on a sentry post near Keri island to stop the Soviet submarines from accessing the Baltic Sea from the eastern part of the Gulf of Finland. Suddenly, a Russian bomber appeared.

The bomber descended rather low above the water and dropped a torpedo into the sea. "Uisko" was completely crushed and sank within seconds. 19 sailors went to the bottom of the sea.
