IRTYSH suffered hull dents above waterline (according to Navy Command), no information on Indian Corvette damages. Corvette’s commander lack of practice in making fast stern, and language problems hampering communications between Indian officers and pilot, who was on board of corvette, are said to be the main causes of collision.
