In particular, for the elapsed day, three descent of the remote-controlled uninhabited unit “Panther plus” were carried out from the ship of the Argentine Navy. Three points were surveyed at depths of 840, 940 and 960 meters,

The oceanographic research vessel of the Russian Navy Yantar has also begun exploratory work.

“At the moment, specialists of the search and rescue service of the Naval fleet Russia made seven descents of the Panther Plus underwater vehicle to depths from 125 to 970 meters. A fishing trawler and concrete mass were discovered and classified, ”the press service said.

    I think the works of our rescuers should succeed after so many efforts to find a submarine.

      The main thing is to find and figure out what happened.

    If it is at a depth of somewhere 4-5 kilometers then they will search for a long time.

    And where she made the transition, there are precisely such dips of the depths, there are 6 kilometers ....

    as I understand it, the result of these searches will be an improvement in the search equipment, and who knows how many days they will look for before the announcement of the status of the boat: permanently lost?

      As much as Argentina has enough money to pay for foreign aid.

          Search work can be carried out without payment, at the discretion and by agreement of the parties. But if divers will work to inspect the facility, and even more so, an operation to raise the submarine from a depth with the involvement of special equipment will be performed - only for a fee, and not a very small one. At one time (in 1985), North Korea abandoned the operation to raise its sunken submarine by our forces because of the high cost of work.
