    Not really, a bit of crew/shore maintenance fail is better than some fundamental flaw in the design/manufacture of the engine.
    Its not awesome but its fixable.

    If you have no crew capable to perform simple daily routine maintenance, you have no use of engine, radar, gun...…. So yes fail in training of crew is biggest possible problem.

    It was in syria since a long time. A small ship operated that far and that long will have those sort of issues. Maybe towing was cheaper solution than using a plane or a ship to bring only oil and then use its own propulsion to go back dunno

    The context seems to be more like an area that gets filled with grease then closed up, so you wouldn't normally notice if its not greased.

    This is eehenie level of delusion

    Even if they had to load An-124 with nothing but lubricant it's still better than towing it back

    Luckily for Russia one more NATO vessel tried to have intercourse with a tanker again at the same time so this clusterf**k flew under the radar

    This is even more interesting. Engines in Vishy Volochek are working normaly and propelera are pushing water. It sail normaly and it return to Sevastopol with its own engines. Was this kind of exercise of towing by Muru or was this kind of politics, that the ship went easier through Bospor?

    Weird, maybe had issue on approach/entry to Bosphorus -> tow but sorted it out after they got into Black Sea?

    Byuan M has 4 diesel engines and the currents in the Bosphorus straight are as you can imagine very strong. Most likely one or two engines are down or the gear box assembly can transfer power from only some of the engines.

    This whould explain why it needs assistance going through Bosphorus but it can sail on it own once in the Black sea.

    Gearbox should be enclosed in steel casted shell, that has a pump moving oil from the bottom cannister to the top. Its not like guy runs around with greaser and sprays the gear wheels...

    Yes but if someone forgot to put the oil/grease in there before sealing it up...
