BUENOS AIRES (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 15th March, 2019) Rear Admiral David Burden, the director general of materiel of the Argentine Navy, said on Thursday that Argentine submarine ARA San Juan, which was discovered last November after missing for a year, had sunk due to an implosion.
"There was definitely an implosion," Burden said, as quoted by the Buenos Aires Times newspaper.
The submarine with 44 crew on board went missing in mid-November 2017, after reporting about a technical malfunction. A year later, it was discovered at a depth of around 2,975 feet, deformed and with signs of an explosion.
