Russian navy victorius in spite of evil Hun ambush!

()

The Sevastopol Daily Standard, reporting from Marseilles.

Word arrived today from the battered but victorious Imperial Black Sea Fleet. In a cowardly dawn ambush, the main body of the Austro-Hungarian fleet attempted to destroy the Russian fleet off the coast of Italy. Despite a withering initial salvo, the Russian sailors rallied and drove off the Hun while taking only moderate damage.

Initial reports are that one Austrian battleship was captured, but sank during towing operations and that another had been sunk as it turned to flee by the accurate long range gunnery of the Imperatritsa Maria. Several other Austrian ships were reported damaged, one being interred by the Italians after it ran aground near Sicily.

The French mediterranean squadron was reported in the area as well, but as they arrived late to the scene of the battle, their part is largely unknown.

The Entente seems to be winning the propaganda war already.

Heck, we certainly didn't even take any damage, let alone fire! Eye-wink We were just lucky we made it to witness the spectacle of the Imperial Russian Fleet avenging their loss of 10 years previous with an astonishing display of seamanship and gunnery. Good work and we are certainly glad to have you on our side as gallant allies Cool
