  • The Indonesian naval submarine was found four days after it disappeared off the coast of Bali.
  • This was announced by the army chief of the Southeast Asian country. The 53 people on board are dead, according to Air Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto.
  • At a media conference, the armed forces published pictures of the sunken "KRI Nanggala 402".
  • The submarine set sail in Surabaya, Java, and took part in a torpedo attack exercise. Radio contact was broken off on Wednesday morning around 95 kilometers north of Bali.

The wreck of the submarine, which has been missing since Wednesday, was found by a diving robot (ROV) at a depth of more than 800 meters near the island of Bali. The military leadership of the Southeast Asian country announced that the "KRI Nanggala 402" had broken into three parts.

With this authentic evidence, we can confirm that the KRI Nanggala 402 sank and all 53 seafarers on board died while on duty.

"We have recordings that we have identified as part of KRI Nanggala 402," said the country's army chief, Air Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto, at a press conference. Parts of the submarine such as anchors, safety suits and rudders were discovered near the main wreck. All 53 people on board died while on duty in the waters.

Navy chief of staff Admiral Yudo Margono added that the disaster was not due to human error.

Previously abandoned rescue of the crew

Just hours before the discovery of the submarine was announced, the government officially abandoned the rescue of the 53-strong crew.

"The army and the navy have changed the status of the submarine KRI Nanggala 402 KRI from 'lost contact' to 'sunk' or 'sunk'," said President Joko Widodo on Sunday morning. He expressed his condolences to the crew.

Finding objects made hope dwindle

The almost 60 meter long submarine lost contact with the fleet during an exercise on Wednesday morning. At the time it was about 95 kilometers north of Bali.

On Saturday, the Navy reported the find of objects, including a bottle of lubricant for the periscope and a torpedo case. Ships and planes from various nations were involved in the search for the wreck.

Boat made in Germany

The "KRI Nanggala 402" was built in 1977 by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft in Kiel and had been part of Indonesia's fleet since 1981. In 2012, a two-year complete overhaul in a South Korean shipyard was completed.

    The German production of the submarine is referred to in bold letters over and over again, as if it were in some way related to the tragic event. Do you want to give Germany some kind of responsibility here?

    Since 1945, 1,810 sailors have died in 67 submarine accidents. The majority were Soviet submarines. The largest submarine fleets today have China (105), Norkorea (90), USA (74), Russia (62), South Korea (20), D and GB each have 17, France and Norway each have 12, Turkey 14, Italy 11, Greece and Pakistan 10 each. Six nations currently operate nuclear submarines; these are the USA, Russia, France, England, China and India. A nuclear powered submarine costs $ 1.4 billion.
