Argentine Navy: Fixed underwater noise not related to a submarine

Argentine naval forces spread the message that the underwater noise previously recorded in the southwestern part of the Atlantic Ocean is not related to the San Juan submarine that was lost a few days ago. The representative of the Argentine Navy, Enrique Balbi, said that the noise recorded by sonars has a biological origin.

Argentine Navy: Fixed underwater noise not related to a submarine

Earlier in the Argentine media, there were reports that the noise could be knocking with metal objects on the inner hull of a submarine hull. However, the Navy refuted information that it was this noise that could be created by representatives of the crew of a submarine.

Meanwhile, it became known that the US Navy is deploying a full-scale operation in the southwestern Atlantic using deep-sea vehicles to search for the Argentinean submarine. On the eve of the first remotely controlled underwater unmanned vehicle dived. According to the latest data, a section of the seabed with an area of ​​about 4 thousand square kilometers was investigated - this study did not give any results, and a submarine of the Argentine Navy has not yet been discovered. On it at the time of transition to the base fleet there were 44 crew members in Mar del Plata, including a female officer.

          In the underwater position, the crew of diesel-electric submarines with the help of air regeneration can last no more than 4-5 days, the sixth have already gone. One head from the Argentine Navy command said that on the 15 of the day, the boat reported a malfunction in the power supply system, and the route was changed to a shorter one. If the EA system does not work, and there is not enough air supply for the HP, then the boat will not emerge and is doomed. Searching for it now is, indeed, more efficient to conduct guided underwater vehicles. Upstairs storm 7 - 8 points.

      Nothing personal - just business!

      Where did you see the business here? They conduct a search operation, hope for the best, and the media, of course, replicates any information.

    On it at the time of transition to the fleet base in Mar del Plata there were 44 crew members, including a female officer.
    Sailors say that a woman on a warship is always unfortunately. Especially underwater. or are sailors no longer superstitious? They didn’t play enough in tolerance, or thought they were in a movie like “Raise the periscope”. Explain to me what the “female officer” was doing in the combat submarine? Just don’t say that you served. Most likely she was enlisted in the crew on the order of some sort of feminist organizations in order to cover up the eyes of the "public", like we are all right with tolerance. At the same time, forgetting that the navy is not a toy.

    It would be better if the Argentines asked us to help. And then the Yankees will also finish this boat, it will become from them, they can only bring harm and misfortune! !!!!

    But it seems to me that the Angles or the Americans put their hands or a torpedo on the boat. The emergency lighthouse pops up automatically. But isn’t it here. Question-drowned out or didn’t pop up? Yes, and attempts to make calls via satellite-7 attempts and no one picked up the phone .. crap some kind.
    And anyway, who is the loudest screaming: “hold the thief”?
    Why the Americans launched a search operation, they are not very friendly with Argentina, but if their torpedo-rocket sticks out in the boat, then the fuss is clear !!!

    And the topic is more interesting - the Angles or we attacked the boat, it managed to leave the wounded one. To float or cannot or is afraid, so we started the SEARCH OPERATION. Because there is no boat and beacon and they didn’t get through the satellite, but they don’t turn on the radio so as not to light up
