Argentine submarine: Missing ARA San Juan imploded, navy confirms

Argentine Navy Submarine Missing For A Year Found Deep In Atlantic

The discovery made by the American company Ocean Infinity, about to suspend its search, occurred after found a suspicious object on the seabed from one of its probes at 800 meters deep and confirm their identity with an ROV (remote observation vehicle) 500 kilometers from the city of Comodoro Rivadavia.

The German-built ARA San Juan submarine found on the ocean floor was said to have had many flaws.

The Argentine navy's last contact with the vessel was at approximately 07:30 (10:30 GMT) on 15 November, at which point its captain reportedly confirmed that the crew were well.

But Yolanda Mendiola, the mother of crewman Leandro Cisneros, said: "We are with the other relatives".

The wreckage was found by the Seabed Constructor, a ship owned by the United States search firm Ocean Infinity.

'We are all destroyed here'. The company was commissioned by the Argentine government to search for the missing vessel.

Relatives of crew members prayed for their return in Mar del Plata even as hopes dwindled that the diesel-powered submarine would be found before the air supply ran out.

The San Juan was some 430 km (270 miles) off Argentina's Patagonian coast when it sent its last signal.

Families of the crew say they are determined to fight for the rescue of the submarine and those inside.

Speaking Thursday, on the anniversary of the disappearance, Argentine President Mauricio Macri told the families of the submariners they should not feel alone, and offered his "absolute and non-negotiable commitment" to find "the truth".

Among those lost was Eliana Maria Krawczyk, Argentina's first female submarine officer.

The San Juan, a German-built TR-1700 class submarine, vanished nearly exactly one year ago as it was sailing from the southernmost port of Ushuaia to Mar del Plata after a patrol.

The navy said the captain reported on November 15 that water had entered the snorkel and caused one of the sub's batteries to short-circuit.

Experts have said that refits can be hard because they involve integrating systems produced by different manufacturers, and any mistake during the cutting phase can put the safety of the ship and crew at risk.

After the sub went missing, the Vienna-based Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) said it had detected a noise a few hours after the vessel's last contact.
