8-inch and twenty 6-inch shell hits, with four duds being found after the
battle. One officer and twenty-seven crewmen were killed and four

The Russians fired approximately 3,000 rounds during the battle. Admiral Makarov had about ninety 8-inch and half her 6-inch shells remaining at the end of the fighting.
Admiral Makarov was hit by one 8.8
cm shell from Albatross which did slight damage and wounded one
Bayan was hit by one 21 cm shell from Roon on the hull side and mine deck damaging the amidships area. Two men were slightly wounded.
Rurik was hit by ten 10.5 cm shells from Lübeck which damaged the deck, funnels and officer's cabins. Fumes from the bursters caused a temporary evacuation of one of the 10-inch turrets. A salvo landing close off the bow threw so much water on deck that the rangefinder apparatus on the command bridge was damaged. Roon made a further hit on Rurik with a 21 cm shell which damaged the aft conning tower and destroyed the adjoining superstructure.
