In an effort to assist the forces on the ground, the battleships’ objective was to bombard the coastal batteries at Cortellazzo near the mouth of the Piave. At 1035, 9–10km off Cortellazzo, the battleships’ 24mm and 15mm guns opened fire. After just a half-hour bombardment most of the Italian guns had been knocked out.

The only things spotted were the boats beginning to circle around the listing Wien. Lt. Rizzo had gotten clean away. Huber ordered the engineers to fill the trim tanks but the ship was mortally wounded. With water rushing from compartment to compartment, and the lower deck crews not securing the watertight doors, Wien began to roll to starboard only five minutes after being torpedoed. As she capsized Huber and the crew remaining on deck were thrown into the water. They and other survivors clung to floating debris until picked up by boats from Budapest and from the naval air station.
