Indonesian naval submarine disappears during exercises near Bali

33

An Indonesian Navy diesel-electric submarine went missing during a training exercise near Bali. The Indonesian naval forces have launched a search operation, assistance from the Singaporean and Australian navies has been requested.


Communication with the submarine KRI Nanggala 402 was reportedly lost during the exercise, when the submarine was supposed to conduct torpedo launches. In due time, the submarine did not get in touch, all attempts to contact her ended in failure. The submarine has a crew of 34 people on board.

The loss of communication with the submarine and the beginning of the search was confirmed by the commander-in-chief of the Indonesian armed forces, Hadi Tchahjanto. According to him, the submarine commander requested permission to dive, after which at 16:30 (12:30 Moscow time) he was supposed to launch torpedoes, but the boat did not get in touch, does not respond to requests and its location is unknown.

Presumably, judging by the exercise plan, the submarine may be located 96 km from the island of Bali at a depth of about 700 meters. The submarine is not designed to be at such depths, if it really sank in this area, it is impossible to save the submarine's personnel.

Diesel-electric submarine KRI Nanggala 402 was built in Germany in 1981, in 2011 it was modernized. The main armament is 533 mm torpedoes, 14 ammunition, eight torpedo tubes. Full displacement - 1,395 tons, length - 59,5 meters, width - 6,3 meters, speed - 21,5 knots.

    If only they could find it. Whoever was there, but the sailors are sorry. Terrible death during peaceful exercises.

      Yes, at least in order to establish the resting place of the crew, and to establish the approximate cause of the accident.

        An oil spill was found at the site of the sinking of the missing submarine.

        There is also news from the category "arrived" - Polyakhskaya submarine, the only one in their fleet is now completely incapable of combat! There was no one to fix the torpedo tubes, and the winch for loading torpedoes was not found in the field!

    40 years, during this period even German quality will crack, it will not fit into any gate, especially the tropics. An oil stain was found at the dive site, and that's it.

      At least something. Of course, the spot can be blown away by the wind or current, but there is already some kind of clue.

      They build boats of this project (well, rather, Korean ones - which are based on the German 209). Well, the Germans serve. On the one hand, they have a fleet in good condition, constant updates.


      On the other hand, emergency with old ships is a norm for them. In 2019, they lost 2 ships at once (GDR KFOR and MPK), and last year KFOR.

      Argentinean "San Juan" is the same German, and around this time ... quality. not quality, they would have found it sooner, a stain is already something, otherwise wait, like then ... the memory of the crew, the relatives of patience ...

        Unfortunately, the depth there is 700 meters, the diesel engine will not withstand the pressure. If they could keep the boat at the maximum working depth, they probably already surfaced. Hope for a miracle! It may happen!

          1. After modernization in 2012 in South Korea, its working depth (they write "safe") was brought to 843 feet (257m) ... And the sea depth is 700m.
          2. The boat is single-hull. If the PC is leaking, the boat gets heavy very quickly. It is very difficult to blow ballast over 300 m. the air squeaks ... There is an emergency ballast blowing system. The Germans introduced gas-chemical, gunpowder ... It is not known whether they had it or not. There is not enough energy to pull out on the lifting force of the hull. And this can be done if the nose becomes heavier (trim on the nose), but it grows rapidly. Then the electrolyte flows out. A power shortage, a fire ... There is a sunset corner, after which you can't return. And if the differential is at the stern, then you roll even faster. And this is the worst thing that can be ...
          3. Oil stain ... this is the last goodbye, goodbye from the nurse ...
          and the last one. The command of the fleet already considers her dead.
          The Navy sent a distress signal to the International Submarine Rescue and Rescue Liaison Office to report that the ship was missing and presumed sunk.
          At the time of the loss, there were 53 people on board the Nanggala, including 49 officers and crew members, as well as four passengers. The highest-ranking naval officer on the submarine was Colonel Harry Setiavan, commander of the 2nd Fleet Command's submarine squadron. Below him were Lieutenant Colonel Heri Octavian, the submarine commander, and Irfan Suri, an officer from the Weapons and Electronics Service.

          Something tells me that it was not easy going to sea, if senior officers went out to sea on you ...
          We will wait for the news.
          IMHO.

      No, there is no need to claim quality - they just simply failed for the ultimate depth. And there is no doubt that the boat has been crushed by the pressure.

      Alas, at great depths all this can be at the same time, it's like giving up in the cylinder of a diesel engine, a sharp compression of air and, accordingly, its instant warming up.
      The air temperature will depend on the pressure and compression speed.

    Depth embraced you and me
    And covered it with a steel blanket.
    There, on the black cloth of the bottom,
    The stifled heart fell silent.

    And the water closed over the boat
    And cut off the exit by dawn ...
    Silence. Depth. Darkness.
    And scanty notes in the newspapers.

    And no one will know why
    And of course no one will hear ...
    Our souls are dozens of candles
    Suddenly they went out with a command from above ...

    Sea water in our veins
    Our souls are squeezed by vests ...
    We have gone nowhere from the piers.
    Everything! Don't wait for us guys anymore!

    A siren scream, and a bell rings,
    A piece of the ocean instead of a temple ...
    That's all ... Yes, a farewell wreath,
    And my mother is forever old ...

    And the beloved is at home alone
    She looks at her son guiltily ...
    Depth embraced you and me
    And he won't let go back ...

      Indonesia hardly has life-saving appliances for such depth, if only to attract the third ones, and this time.

      It's not about time, or the availability of certain funds from the Indonesians, but about the design of the boat, which was flattened and torn apart at such a depth.

      There, at a depth of 700, there is no one to save ...

    53 rights.
    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - Indonesia's navy is searching for a submarine that went missing north of the resort island of Bali with 53 people on board, the military said Wednesday.

    So far, apart from an oil spot of unknown origin, presumably nothing has been found in the dive area.

    Submariner is a prohibitive profession. If anything ... yes. It's easier for our landlord brother. "Here the bullet flew by and aha ..." or zhahnet blazes with heat in the face and that's it. You won't even have time to get scared. I would like to believe that the lads will get out. But the chances are not great.

    Sorry for the people.
    Perhaps there is some problem with the torpedo tubes. In principle, it is logical to conduct torpedo firing from the periscope depth, or from not very great, the water pressure should not have been high.
    Although, who knows how the launch program was.

      I do not understand why training dives, if possible, should not be carried out at depths less than the maximum for the hull. Even if the situation gets out of control, there is a small but chance that it will be possible to repair the damage and try to resurface. And at great depths even this chance is not.

    And if, by chance, completely by, an American / Chinese boat was passing by and, hearing the sound of opening TA, shied ahead?
    Is this option possible? Or is everyone being warned about shooting practice?
