BUENOS AIRES, September 22. /TASS/. US seabed survey company Ocean Infinity has detected an object of the size of Argentina’s San Juan submarine, which went missing last November, Argentine Defense Minister Oscar Aguad said on Friday.

The minister said the "important signal" was recorded at the depth of 280 meters.

"It is surprising that the object wasn’t discovered before," he said.

Argentina submarine: ARA San Juan found

According to a tweet from the Argentine navy, the ARA San Juan had been positively identified under the water by a US company.

The navy had earlier shared a picture from the seabed, suggesting a 60m-long object might be the missing submarine.

Positive ID



This is the bow. Note the six 533 mm torpedo tubes. Other two pictures are released, but this one shows the unmistakable bow section of a TR1700 class boat. It is look lke the pressure hull is pretty much intact or, at least, in one big piece.

Sad news, but at least some answers to the relatives.

Just repeating what I understood to be a statement by the US company that found her, I assume they were working from pictures, not sonar, I thought they said that the pressure hull had collapsed?

I would have thought that all those electrical connections for the torpedo tubes would be on the inside of the boat.

Could one guess the outer part of the casing broke off on impact with the sea bed?

With the eye of faith, you can just about make out the two mid-line and upper right doors. This photo shows them more clearly

Thanks for that, topgas. One does have too look a bit closely, but indeed they can be construed on ORAC's photo.
