Ukraine first reported the destruction of such boats in Crimea in September 2023. In one instance, a Turkish reconnaissance and strike drone, Bayraktar TB2, struck one of the Tunets boats in the northwestern part of the Black Sea during a Russian disembarkation.

Explosions rocked Russian-occupied Kerch near the Crimean Bridge on May 30. The so-called occupational "authorities" reported damage to both automobile and railway ferries. Russia's Defense Ministry claimed the "destruction" of eight ATACMS missiles, eight drones, and two naval drones.
