Indonesian Admiral: Missing Submarine Runs Out of Oxygen

20

The chief of staff of the Indonesian naval forces issued a statement regarding the missing submarine Nanggala-402 this week. This is a German-built submarine that has been in operation since 1981. The Indonesian Naval Forces crew lost contact during an exercise north of Bali. There, the submarine conducted torpedo firing.


According to the Indonesian Admiral Margono, just a few hours ago (about 3: 00-4: 00 Moscow time), oxygen ran out on board the missing submarine, which made it possible to maintain the vital activity of the crew.

This statement is actually a confirmation of the death of Indonesian submariners. At the same time, there was no official and unambiguous statement about the loss of sailors from the Indonesian military department.

It is reported that one of the search brigades managed to find a source of electromagnetic radiation at a depth of 100 m. This is despite the fact that in the area of ​​the exercises, in which the submarine Nanggala-402 participated, the depths reach values ​​of 2,5-3 km.

At the moment, it is known that several ships with echolocation equipment are sent to the area of ​​registration of EM radiation, the source of which may turn out to be a missing submarine.

Earlier it was reported that the ships and auxiliary vessels of the Singapore and Australian navies were connected to the search operation.

      Sorcerers have nothing to do with it. There is a technically estimated time in these situations. With a little (+), (-) in both directions. Unfortunately.

        I am sincerely sorry for the victims, these are husbands, fathers and someone's sons.
        Condolences to relatives.
        God forbid they will find and raise the boat, because you need to find out the reason.

          It is a pity for the submariners of the Indonesian boat - they did not harm anyone, but only themselves studied and supported their combat training in defending their homeland. The technique failed.

          Our sincere sympathy to the families, relatives and friends of the victims!

    There are definitely more than one version of the loss, in general, the crew seems to be listed as missing for now. The area is known for the type of submarine, too, the depths are not small, plus the bottom relief makes it difficult to search, if not "hijacked" I think they will find it, but whether they will try to raise it, the question is.

      Legally, yes. In fact, the living are most likely no longer there.

        Rescuers have found fragments of the Indonesian submarine Nanggala-402 that went missing this week, the Indonesian Navy said. The submarine, on board of which there were more than 50 people, was declared sunken.

        "Given the evidence we have found, we are moving from the phase where the submarine was considered missing, to the phase where it is considered sunk," the Associated Press quoted the chief of staff of the Indonesian Navy, Admiral Yudo Margono, as quoted by the Associated Press.

        Among the items found by the rescue teams were torpedo tube parts, a container with grease for the periscope and prayer rugs for the crew, Margono said.

    It remains to express condolences. Unfortunately, tragedies happen in all countries and not only at sea.

    ... one of the search teams managed to find a source of electromagnetic radiation at a depth of 100 m

    It is not entirely clear what was meant.
    Is it possible to transmit information by electromagnetic radiation at a depth of 100 m?
    Threat men, sorry. There is still a negligible probability that part of the team survived, if some of the people died initially at the time of the accident, but it is very low

    Condolences. Unfortunately, ALL submariners accept such death, when oxygen runs out.

    It is already reported that the boat was found at a depth of 850 m. The depth at which it is located does not give the crew any chances, even if there were still supplies of oxygen.

      This is a prohibitive depth for the 209 project. 600 m - well, you could still "doubt", and 850 - no options. The bulkheads of the compartments will not withstand such pressure unambiguously ...
      Eternal memory to the people of the sea ... Condolences to families ...

        It's bad that the United States let its Explorer ship on metal - with the help of it, it was possible to raise the boat.

    Give up your "Aryan" habits, otherwise you will get a response; The Russian Fleet on BOATs conquers the vastness of the World Ocean - literate people also live and work there - respect and understand them, and do not meddle with your charter, like a mattress

    Save our souls!
