The Naval Action off Berutarube was an invasion attempt by Hayaban Forces on the evening of the 1st of May, 2012. The attempt to retake Shikotan was foiled by Dewhurst-Narculian Naval Forces and after a short engagement, surrendered to become part of the Imperial Hayaban Fleet.


Early Actions

Setting out from Iturup, the Hayaban Eastern Fleet commanded from the Twilight of Hayanba, intent on avoiding enemy contact, hugged the Iturup Eastern Coastline, though the large presence of the fleet, were found halfway down the coast.

The 19th fleet, heading south-east, despatched the two Thallium Class Battleships(Tallahasseeand Turmoil) to chase down the fleet.


Engagement

Due to DSM coverage of the area, the Tallahassee and Turmoil were able to close the gap, unseen by radar and opened fire at a range of 56km, by sheer chance striking their target which was later revealed to be a transport ship

Dash to Shikotan

Under heavy fire, the Hayaban fleet turned to Sikotan in a desperate attempt to land the troops as they began taking damage from sustained fire. In quick succession the Hayabans lost smaller craft and a few transport vessels as they ineffectivley returned fire.

During the exchange, two OSA craft caught up to the two battleships, firing P-15 Termit missiles at the two ships. Three struck the ships, the Turmoil taking light damage froma close miss and the Tallahassee having two strike hard, knocking out it's aft 8" triple centerline turret and also landing on the aft AA platform, killing 54 immediately and eventally 60.

Only a few minutes later, torpedoes from Hayaban Submarines were launched, evasive manouvers leading to only one torpedo hitting the Turmoil, failing to cause any damage.

Surrender

After taking heavy losses, the Hayaban Fleet surrended, being taken into custody of Dewhurst-Narculian Forces and currently is detained in Hanasaki.
