Avvicinatosi al motoveliero, alle 3.48 il sommergibile aprì il fuoco col suo cannone; sparò in tutto undici colpi contro lo SVAM I, stimando quattro centri accertati più altri due probabili, fino ad incendiare la piccola nave. Dopo il terzo colpo, la batteria italiana di Forte Biroli aprì il fuoco a sua volta contro il Thunderbolt, che reagì con quattro salve dirette contro la batteria mentre si ritirava dall’area.


L’affondamento dello SVAM I nel giornale di bordo del Thunderbolt (da Uboat.net):

“0325 hours - Sighted a three masted schooner at anchor. Decided to attack with the gun.
0348 hours - Opened fire. In all eleven rounds were fired for four hits and two possible hits. The schooner was on fire. After the third round, Thunderbolt was taken under fire by a shore battery. Thunderbolt fired four rounds at this shore battery while withdrawing from the area (the battery was Fort Biroli).”
