In Video: Italian Patrol Boat Sank In Mediterranean After Engine Fire

Screen grab from Crotone News video.

On July 1, a Corrubia-class patrol boat of the Guardia di Finanza (GdF), an Italian law enforcement agency under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance, sank in the Mediterranean Sea after a fire.

The boat, G.94 Cappelletti, reportedly sank in the waters between Bianco and Roccella Jonica, in the province of Reggio Calabria.

The fire broke out in the engine room before spreading out. The crew abandoned the 27-meter long boat after failing to put down the fire. They were all rescued by other boats of the GdF.

Corrubia-class patrol boats are built of composite materials. The boats of this class has a range of 700 nautical miles and a top speed of 43 knots. The main armament of Corrubia-class boats is a single-barreled 30 mm Breda machine gun.

According to Crotone News, G.94 Cappelletti was patrolling the waters to intercept migrant’s boats, which began to reach Calabrian coasts in the recent days, when the fired broke out.

Officials from the Italian Ministry of the Interior in charge of migration policies expect 70,000 migrants to arrive from North Africa coastline by the end of 2021. At least 30,000 are expected to come from Libya.

What are you laughing about, troll?


It is quite funny really, ever driven a Italian car? LOL

Peppe il Sicario

You can never own one on your McDonald’s salary, so how would you know, you LBGT-loving cuck fag?


Most of Italian navy for the past century can be found at the bottom of the Mediterranean, so this is normal.

Peppe il Sicario

OK Kyle, Skyler, Sean, Kevin or whatever your gay Anglo-cunt name is. If it weren’t for Italian sailors you’d be called Mustafa by now, little bitch.

Why does the new Italian navy have glass bottom boats?

So they can see the old Italian navy.


Spoken like a true Anglo-American blowhard cuck fag!!! They sunk more British tonnage than vice versa, you dolt!!! That’s a historical fact, not Anglo-American propaganda.

Another idiot in the making


Italians are queer mamma boys, history has proven their cowardice.

Icarus Tanović

Froggies and spaghettari.


But your women will leave you in 2 seconds flat to be with a REAL Italian man, ain’t that so????

Icarus Tanović

It is woman, singular, you moron. To be REAL Italians are feggeti omosezuali.

Peppe il Sicario

All of them you illiterate ass-wipe. English vocabulary is not your forte amongst millions of other things.


They surrender to british/american soldiers without fighting in second world war:Operation Compass and Sicily invasion


Little man, I’ll be more than happy of giving you a guided tour of all the dead americunts and limeys there are in the WW2 war cemetaries here in Sicily. I must have triggered all your litlle dick Anglo troll boys over at CIA or MI6?

Icarus Tanović

So why are you Italians especially you from the south under American occupation since 45? Old Roman fame has disappeared long ago. You with vatican are not normal.


Ask who are the Americans working for! Once you understand that, you will realise that most war dead are martyrs of their nations. We have all been deceived.

Icarus Tanović

Better find mass graves of italians on the eastern coast of adriatics, your chatolic croetian barbaric fellows killed monstruous way like several hundred thousand Italians. Italians by blood, not italians by citizenship.

Peppe il Sicario

Croatians are mercenary scum like you Tanovic. That’s exactly what the Serbs say. If your country has any merit it’s due to it having been part of the Venetian Republic for centuries. I’ll go to Croatia to wipe my cock on your mother’s mouth.


Like the ones who buried their dicks up your mothers’ ass and f*ck your girlie friend every night while you watch jerking off?????

Dick Von D'Astard

Burning and then sinking in full sympathy with the Italian economy and finance.

Andrea Gaspardo

Shut up bitch!


Remain calm Gasbagtardo, you will run out of adult diapers.

Icarus Tanović

‘After engine failure’, rather after Russian submarine sunk them.

Arch Bungle

Mama Mia!

That’s what you get for leaving the espresso pot on too long …

USA fights russian and chinese expansionism

More dead muslims as they wont get rescued :P

Black Hindu Fungus

Hindu filth is dying like roaches eh?

A clown like you

Btw most Indians who have a brain leave that shi* of a “country” as soon they can.

China 1,420,062,022 −1,800,000 −1.33
India 1,370,589,639 −2,598,218 −2.06

China has a much bigger population still loss fewer people than India…I wonder why. Due to Covid, we have fewer Indian scammers, Thank God.


Let me tell you that the Indians who leave are the most fascist lot. Living abroad, they are all fanatic at Modi fellatio since they don’t have to endure the bastard. Not all of us are so lucky.

Peppe il Sicario

German MTU engines!!! So much for Teutonic engineering!!!!!


And dit they recover the wreck after for rescue the 30 mm gun ?

Peppe il Sicario

To do what? They never use them anyway ’cause the Anglo-Americunts who run NATO and the EU are behind the immigrant invasion of Europe. If they had used those guns for what they were intended for and had REAL Italians serving in the armed forces, not Nato bought and paid for mercenary sell-outs, it would be an entirely different story.

Icarus Tanović

Bet they have recovered it. It is as expensive as entire speed boat.

30mm gun belongs to the fish…


Actually the Italian navy was not that bad in WWII. They were hobbled by lack of radar and a natural unwillingness to not die for Hitler, who was de facto their overDuce, but they performed, overall, better than the Kriegsmarine, except in submarine warfare. Even then they managed to infiltrate Alexandria Harbour and sink Brutish ships at anchor, something the Kriegsmarine never could.

However, I don’t see any reason an engine fire should sink a boat, unless the composite hull is as inflammable as the Brutish HMS Sheffield’s aluminium hull was at the Islas Malvinas. Which would make it very, very badly designed and constructed.
