Argentine Submarine Discovered One Year After Disappearance

Argentine Submarine Discovered One Year After Disappearance
ARA San Juan – the Argentine diesel-electric submarine which was last heard of on November 15 – was discovered on Saturday, almost exactly a year after her disappearance.

The navy and defense ministry confirmed that the ARA San Juan was found in a ravine in 920m of water, approximately 600 km east of Comodoro Rivadavia in the Atlantic Ocean.

In contrast to reports from 2017 which said the submarine likely exploded, the Argentine Navy commander Gabriel Attis said it was now evident that the submarine imploded. It is not yet clear why the implosion occurred.

Photos shared by the Argentine Navy show that the submarine’s bow section, sail and propeller were torn off in the implosion.
