On 15 February 1943, while transporting flour and tractors to Dubrovnik, she ran into a mine near Grebeni, hit the cliff, shattering her bow, and sank. Today, this 62-metre vessel serves as an artificial bank. Two tractors stand next to the wreck on the sandy seabed, ready for ploughing. The maximum depth here is 53 m. Find more information on Taranto diving site: here.
