Dear, pray for the safety and safe recovery of the crew. Your post is full of negativity. Avoid such behavior while many families are waiting back home for the return of their loved ones on board.
Truth is hard to digest.
I don’t give a damn about negativity/positivity shit.
I give a damn about logic and work on those principles. Refute my claim with logic, if you can. Regards!

The Indonesian navy says it found an unknown object with 'strong magnetic resonance' in search for its missing submarine, which has less than 24 hours of oxygen left

  • Indonesia's KRI Nanggala 402 submarine vanished Wednesday morning near the island of Bali.
  • Rescuers found a submerged magnetic object and are trying to identify it, the navy said Friday.
  • There is only enough oxygen until 3 a.m. local time Saturday. 53 crew members were on board.
Indonesia's navy said on Friday that it had found an object emitting a "strong magnetic resonance" during the search for its missing submarine.

The navy dispatched search crews to find the KRI Nanggala 402 Wednesday morning after it missed a routine check-in following a torpedo drill that was being conducted near the island of Bali. Fifty-three people, more than the roughly three dozen people the sub was built to carry, were aboard.

Since then, military vessels from the US, India, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore have joined the search, with France, Germany, Russia, Turkey, and South Korea also offering help.
On Friday, Indonesian navy chief of staff Adm. Yudo Margono said an object with "strong magnetic resonance" had been found at a depth of between 50 and 100 meters (164 to 328 feet,) the Associated Press reported.

The navy said that its Riguel warship, which is equipped with the high-tech sonar needed to identify the object, had been dispatched to the location, CNN reported.

Rescue crews previously found an oil slick on the surface of the ocean that the navy said could mean the submarine's fuel tank had been breached.

Time is of the essence as the submarine only has enough oxygen to keep the crew alive until around 3 a.m. local time on Saturday, according to the navy. Jakarta time is 11 hours ahead of Eastern Time.

The submarine is believed to have sunk to a depth of between 600 and 700 meters (2,000 to 2,300 feet), the navy said, adding that it could be too deep to rescue.

Experts have warned that the submarine's hull is at risk of collapse at that depth, and that the vessel is unlikely to survive.

Navy spokesman Julius Widjojono told a local TV network Thursday that the submarine could survive up to a maximum depth of 500 meters.

"Anything more than that can be pretty fatal, dangerous," he said, according to Reuters.

The cause of the disappearance is still unclear. The navy previously said that a power outage may be to blame.

"It is possible that during static diving, a blackout occurred so control was lost and emergency procedures cannot be carried out and the ship fell to a depth of 600 to 700 meters," the navy said in a statement published by Reuters.

None of foreign ships has joined the search, Singapore submarine rescue vessel which is the nearest country will only join the search in Sunday, two days from now. It needs 4-5 days from Singapore to reach Bali by ship, even in its maximum speed. Indonesian deep sea survey vessel, KRI Regel, just arrive this afternoon after departed from Jakarta in Wednesday.

Yeah things are looking bleak...chances for the crew's survival are very low...still one can hope. I personally think Indonesian government should've asked for help from other nearby countries right away as soon as it got the news that the submarine had gone missing.

Actually we contact Singapore and Australia at the day the event happen, Wednesday, it is just Bali is still quite far from Singapore and Australia Navy base, even KRI Regel departed from Jakarta just arrived in Bali this Afternoon.

Posseidon plane from USA will arrive at night, I think we should approach USA quite early and get their plane to help the search and bring their submarine rescue vehicle by plane instead of ship.

I have urged Indonesian Navy to acquire CN 235 antisubmarine, as Indonesia Aerospace has also proposed, for several years in this forum and now they just realized how important it is to have such plane.

I think the problem is not detecting but able to haul the submarine up. Only a sub rescue ship Is capable of doing that.
