Fighting submarine "San Juan" Argentine Navy disappeared off the coast of the South American country. Onboard are the crew member 44. This is stated in the message of the Navy in Twitter.


Off the coast of Argentina lost the submarine


The submarine stopped communicating on the way from the port of Ushuaia to the city of Mar del Plata (the base of the Argentine Navy submarines). Planes and ships were sent to her search. They are in the area where it was recorded last time.

The missing submarine was built in Germany, she entered the Argentine Navy in the 1985 year. The length of the submarine reaches 66 meters, it reaches speeds up to 25 nodes.

Armament: six bow 533-mm (21 -inch) vehicles for 22 wire-guided torpedoes SST-4 or Mk 37; or 34 mines.
Electronic armament: navigation radar "Calypso IV", fire control system "Sinbadz", REER equipment "C Sentry III", active-passive GAS detection and control of fire CSU 3 / 4, passive GAS determining the range DUUX 5.

      Sorry for the people. Argentines are essentially European people on ethnic grounds .. Negroes and others there are very few. And so, they have a very worn-out armament park. Technique, like everything and everything, has an expiration date. I hope to be saved.

        Not a ride, there is no our interest in creating problems for Argentina. Yes, and their president was pretty, and even breathing towards Russia. And the boat is aging faster than her aunt, all the same 32 years old woman. Could and wiring shorten, resulting in a connection and was lost. Hopefully there are. All the same, they did not participate in the hostilities.

          Greetings, Sergey! If the boat did not come up, then the matter is awful, at the disposal of submariners of the order of 4 days, two have already passed. And this boat was undergoing modernization, it changed the diesels and AB, so she had to be in good condition.

            Yuri Alekseevich, I welcome you hi Excuse me for not immediately responding. On the topic - the boat went through modernization, but not a word about the crew. People are the main detail of any technology. An experienced crew can perform the task with the old equipment, but not with the experienced one - and screw up the completely new equipment. In this case, I don’t want to make any verdicts and I won’t; I wish for the sailors to survive and breathe fresh air again and see the sun. I shared your letter with my colleague domnich - he is the commander of a hydrographic ship. If you want - I will give his mail, you will find something to talk with a colleague. I will answer, if you want to talk in the future.

              Thank you, Seryozha! Regarding the professionalism of the crew, you are right.
              My mail is open to all your friends.
              The information about this boat is contradictory, but if it does not come up, it means that it has some internal problems, there can be many of them. Even if it is discovered under water, the Argentines themselves are unlikely to be able to save her crew, they do not have the appropriate rescue equipment. And God forbid that the boat does not slip into the nearby ocean canyon, where the depths are approx. 2 km, then this is a full paragraph, and there will be another long-term mystery.

                  Hello, Sergey! hi We’ve already gone the fourth day ... According to the latest information, 7 satellite calls were detected from the boat, they are trying to determine its exact location, which so far is limited to the rectangle 306x216 km, the center of which is approximately 430 km from the nearest Argentine port of Nomodoro Rivadavia (in San Jorge Bay ) Those. the boat is somewhere offshore, but the border of the Argentine basin is nearby. In fact, the boat transmits satellite signals through a retractable special antenna, the "head" of which should be above the water, i.e. being at maximum at periscope depth. Perhaps they have a pop-up version of a satellite dish, I don’t know. The boat is now looking for 2 EM, 6 Krv, 4 - 5 auxiliary. ships, 6 arg. Aircraft + Amer. Poseidon and Orion. But if she is found underwater, the crew rescue operation will be difficult. Deployment of deep-sea equipment requires at least a week.
                  Yesterday there was significant sea swell, the height of the waves was up to 5 m, which makes search very difficult.

                    Yuri Alekseevich, here I am saying that your comments carry more information than the article itself. Thanks you. All modern means are involved, and the fourth day they are looking for a boat. With all that the crew is trying to give a distress signal, that is, it wants to be found. So what? Nothing happens. But how can they even detect a boat if it is hiding? Here I have more questions. There must be an emergency buoy on the boat. And if the crew has the opportunity, there is also the opportunity to send a signal to hydroacoustics through a hydroacoustic station. Although, if the nasal is flooded, there is no access there, so I understand? Well then, you can knock any piece of iron on the body, the sound is far in the water. Phew, I didn’t seem to confuse much, I hope that I clearly stated my thoughts. recourse

                      Seryozha, I already gave a comment in the next post, but I will repeat it here. Judging by the approximate coordinates, the boat is located at the shelf depths, maximum 200 m. Its maximum immersion depth is 300 m, so that until the fate of the Trescher does not threaten it, unless it is carried in the direction of the ocean, where the Argentine basin begins. The autonomy of the "San Juan" 30 days, but this is not related to its position. The main thing is the supply of oxygen-containing air, the operation of its regeneration system, this is the main factor in crew survival, unless there was a fire and flooding of the compartments inside the submarine. In addition, for some reason they have on board a large "re-set" of people, 44 people instead of full-time 26, which further complicates the situation due to the overexpenditure of breathable air.
                      The satellite signals most likely come from the surfaced radio beacon of the COSPAS-SARSAT system, at a frequency of approximately 406 MHz, but such a buoy can trigger ascent and turn on in automatic mode, i.e. signals are not a sign of crew life. And the intermittent signals, possibly due to the strong sea swell in that area. There is a noise GA station on the boat for supplying an emergency noise signal (at least on our submarines), but its audibility range is small, and it cannot work for a long time (when the AB is seated). Sound communication with the boat can be reached only at a close distance, for this it is necessary to clarify its coordinates, which is now being done.

    Svarog51,
    There are almost no chances, Seryozha, if the boat has been at all this time at depths greater than the periscope. If she had the opportunity to go up, at least to the periscopic depth, then the survival time could increase. Now, the first rescue equipment from the United States - the "bell" and the inspected GBA - has been delivered to the nearest Argentine port, other US rescue equipment is being prepared for shipment. But first of all, you need to find the boat itself, and the search area is still very large, about 50 thousand square meters. km It is unlikely that the crew at the depths will survive before the start of rescue operations.

      Yuri Alekseevich, but if the boat is really at periscope depth, then the crew should have rescue equipment from shallow depths? Well, I do not want to have another mystery in my history again. K-129 - a huge depth, and that is, some kind of information about the causes of death. "Kursk" - the length of the cruiser is greater than the depth of immersion and again no information. Here again - they received signals and can not find. Well, how is that? When will an effective search and rescue service be created? In the 30s, a rescue operation was carried out, a successful operation. And now? Why?

        Seryozha, the emergency boat will not be at periscope depth, she will certainly try to emerge into the surface, but if she cannot do this and she has exhausted such opportunities, she will not be able to stay at the periscope, she will go down and most likely to the bottom. Find a submarine lying without a move at the bottom on an area of ​​500 thousand square meters. km - the task is very difficult, here you need a huge surface fleet and a bunch of search aircraft. Especially if there is a storm at the top, and now, according to the Argentine Navy, the waves have reached the height of 8 - 10 m, and such weather, they say, will be two more days. Much depends on the circumstances. The place of death of K-129 was tracked by the Americans, and they went to the operation with the exact coordinates. "Kursk" was in the range of BP, whose borders are known and small. Now they place great hope on the COSPAS-SARSAT satellite alarm system (this is an international version of the system, there is our domestic one) when a buoy container with a radio beacon that pops up and sends signals to satellites, to the UHF is thrown. Perhaps such a buoy and fired from a boat. But a huge indefinite area of ​​search and a storm element! Can you imagine the waves in 10 m? This is a storm of 8 points. The height of the superstructure of the diesel-electric submarine is of the order of 5 - 6 m.
        By the way, the deep-sea equipment that the Americans are now delivering to the Argentine port can work up to sea excitement at 5 points.

          Yuri Alekseevich, yes, I’ve never even seen a wave above 3 meters. Well, I’m unlucky in life, but I want to look again at the water surface without end and edge. Well, I will not talk about sad things. K-129 - depth over 5000m, Americans could track the exact location if they were involved in its death. “Kursk” - but the training ground is also a storm. So I can’t believe that the boat that carried out a brilliant operation in the Mediterranean, died with accident from the crew. Do not convince me that behind this catastrophe there are no striped ears. And with an Argentine boat, even I am an amateur, and even then I can ask a bunch of unpleasant questions (not for you, of course), but to the Argentine command and some others from the English Admiralty. And then, just that, immediately Russia is accused of all sins. Here, too, will they look for the Russian trace? It is not necessary to look for a trace, but to save people, and this just does not happen, unfortunately. IMHO of course. hi

            It is unlikely that in this case they dare to look for a “Russian trace”, in any case, the Argentines, they have a grudge against the Britons, but this accusation is also almost unbelievable. Here, the Argentines need to conclude that the search for a submarine that has not gotten in touch should immediately begin to be organized, in 4 hours, and not wait for almost two days. Secondly, a country that wants to have and has its own submarine fleet is simply obliged to have modern means to rescue the crew of emergency submarines. I'm not talking about a thorough check of the technical condition of the boats before the trip. But the search for the missing submarines is simply an international task.
            By the way, I’ll add that the COSPAS-SARSAT radio beacon works on its own independent power source for up to two days, then everything is out.
            Ah, Seryozha, I’ll tell you later what opportunities we had in the 70 to designate ourselves in case of flooding on a long trip - you’ll be horrified. what
