The second object, found at a depth of 139 meters, was identified by the British crew HMS Protector as a wreck.

Earlier, Russian Navy specialists discovered a sunken fishing trawler in the search area during the diving of the “Panther plus” remote-controlled bathyscaphe.

      zzdimk, 15:14 p.m. It turns out at the current level of technology, there is no means for tracking and detecting underwater objects. There are no means of signaling a crash of underwater vehicles A submarine fleet emerges, a formidable weapon that has no chance of saving crews in a crash.

          Sanya, thanks for the trust, but I'm in the ship's technical specifications - well, a complete zero. It seems they are "classmates." Here, as I understand it, "filling" plays a major role.

              And so it is necessary to beg on the ground for little by little. I understand that being close to such a technique you get used to. That's when I never saw her - everything is interesting. Even the "mark" of fish that you caught and ate. "One spotted pike - caught forty pieces." wink drinks

                  Similar deep-sea vehicles starred in the movie "Abyss", and of our Worlds in Titanic. About the spy device, I also heard "by the edge of my ear". But how does he search? The devices are lowered to examine something already found. And what is "Amber" in August 2015. explored in the Atlantic? Apparently, there were just naval convoys from the Allies. request

    It seems to me that they will never find her. Soon searches will stop. And this will be another mystery of the ocean.

    That is, without any gloom, I simply state that there are many such cases.

    An interesting reason for her death.

    So already wrote:
    1. Power outage on the boat.
    2. Failure of batteries (which were recently repaired).

    PS. And according to the latest reports from the crew - the boat sank into the depths, not having the opportunity to emerge.
