    This was done under the battleship Erzherzog Franz Ferdinand's leadership, facilites were destroyed, the Radetzky a sister ship, was involved in the blockade of Cattaro in Montenegro. There are some pictures on the wikis of these ships, but the site does not let me copy them.

                                13. The Battle of the Strait of Otranto

                                The 1917 Battle of the Strait of Otranto was the result of an Austro-Hungarian raid on the Otranto Barrage, an Allied naval blockade of the Strait of Otranto. The battle took place on 14–15 May 1917, and was the largest surface action in the Adriatic Sea during World War I.[1] The Otranto Barrage was a fixed barrier, composed of lightly armed drifters with anti-submarine nets coupled with minefields and supported by Allied naval patrols.
